This year marks the third year that the personal finance community via Flexo of Consumerism Commentary has run it's own awards of a sort to honor the best blogs in a variety of categories. The awards are called the Plutus Awards, and will honor personal finance blogs in a variety of categories from blog of the year, to the people's choice award for the site with the most votes. So why is it called the Plutus Awards?
In ancient Greek mythology, Plutus was the god of wealth. Much like wealth itself, Plutus was blind, offering his virtues without regard for the virtuosity or merit of the recipient. He was lame but winged, leaving much more quickly than he could arrive.
I've been honored to be listed among the finalists in the “best religious finance blog” category the last couple of years. This year I would love to have your vote in that category again. Please vote for me in these categories:
- Best Religious Personal Finance Blog
- Blog Of The Year
The voting only goes through Tuesday 8/14, so please vote this week!
UPDATE: The nominations are complete, and we're one of the 5 finalists for best religious finance blog! From now until September we need your vote for the People's Choice Award! Just click on the radio button for Bible Money Matters, and click “VOTE”. It's that simple. Vote For Bible Money Matters
Vote For Me To Win!
Here are the instructions you'll see for voting when you reach the voting page:
The Plutus Awards celebrate the best in personal finance. Please take five minutes to vote for your favorite blogs here. Independent financial bloggers can also vote for their favorite personal finance products and services. In order to qualify as an independent financial blogger, you must be the operator of a blog that is not associated with a personal finance product or service. If you are part of a company’s marketing and advertising campaign, you do not qualify.

The winners of the Plutus Awards will be announced live at the Financial Blogger Conference in Denver in September, so that should be a lot of fun if you're able to make the trip, I know I had a great time last year!
To vote for me just head on over to the Plutus Awards site, and denote whether you are a independent financial blogger or not – and then proceed to voting. If you want to skip some of the categories you can feel free to do that as voting in every category is not required. Head on over and vote by clicking on the link below!
