Top Personal Finance Blogs of 2012 – Win an iPad Mini

by Sean Bryant on January 18, 2013

One of the greatest aspects about the personal finance community is that most of us bring a unique voice and personal experience to our blogs. Some of us have an educational background in finance or economics. Others have real life experience, like overcoming a mountain of debt. Not a day goes by in which I don’t learn something new.

We are also an extremely tight knit community of bloggers. We have come together to support different causes such as the debt movement. Thanks to Philip Taylor we have Fincon where we can come together, network and learn from each other.

The year of 2012 has come and gone, but myself, along with Ready for Zero would like to recognize bloggers who truly helped make a difference in peoples lives. We want to acknowledge those who helped their readers pay down their debt, save for retirement and invest more wisely. Through January 31, 2013 we will be taking nominations for the top personal finance blogs of 2012.

Once the nomination process is over, the fun will begin. Each nominee will turn to their readers to accumulate as many votes as possible. At the end of the voting, the top three blogs will be rewarded with the following prizes:

1st Place = iPad Mini

2nd Place = $100 Cash

3rd Place = $50 Cash 

We’re not finished yet. The winning blog will also have the chance to host a giveaway where we will give one of their readers a $100 cash prize to help them pay down debt or add to their savings.

To get started all you need to do is fill out the form below to nominate yourself or one of your fellow bloggers.
