Top Personal Finance Blogs of 2012

by Sean Bryant on February 7, 2013

Top Personal Finance Blogs

Over the past three weeks nominations have been coming in to recognize the top personal finance blog of 2012. I couldn’t be more happy with the turnout. As you can see by the number of nominees below, there is no shortage of great personal finance bloggers.

The nominees have now been set and it is officially time to start voting for the top personal finance blog of 2012. The winning blog will be the one that has proven to consistently go above and beyond the rest, in order to help improve its reader’s finances over the past year. This blog may have given you hope that no amount of debt is too big to pay down. Or, help you figure out what steps to take to retire when you want to.

To honor the top personal finance blog, One Smart Dollar and ReadyForZero have teamed up to give away some great prizes to the top three blogs.

1st Place – iPad Mini

2nd Place – $100

3rd Place – $50

We’re not stopping there. We are also going to give the winning blog $100 to give away to one of their readers to help them in their journey to pay down their debt or add to their savings.

Congratulations to all of the nominees and good luck!

NOTE:  You will be allowed to vote up to three times. Voting will end on February 28, 2013.

Can I suggest either having the chceckboxes closer to the nominees or color alternate each row. It is a bit difficult to see which one goes where.
