Here’s a note from Flexo about the 3rd Annual Plutus Awards:
Today This Week!
The Plutus Awards are returning to FinCon this year, and we’re planning a revitalized event that’s sure to be hit among the bloggers in attendance. The Plutus Awards are designed to celebrate the best in personal finance and to feature independent the best independent bloggers who write about personal finance and money management. Independent personal finance bloggers deserve recognition for the work they do bringing voices outside mainstream media to the forefront of the global discussion.At the same time, the Plutus Awards also acknowledge the expertise of personal finance bloggers by asking the community to determine the leaders in money products and services. In addition to Plutus Awards recipients in the blog-focused categories, banks, software companies, and published authors that create the best products will receive Plutus Awards.
The Plutus Awards season will culminate in an awards ceremony at #FinCon12, Thursday, September 6. Kevin McKee from Thousandaire.com will be the host, bringing multimedia and live entertainment to the first night of the conference. If you’ve seen Kevin’s videos, you may have an idea of what to expect. Winners of the Plutus Awards will be presented with trophies and prize packages with gifts from sponsors.
Thanks to the Plutus Awards Planning Committee, the event is only one of the improvements since last year. The voting process has been streamlined and simplified, and there will be more opportunities for independent bloggers to be recognized. While there is less of a focus on a popular vote this year, a new category, the People’s Choice Plutus Award, is sure to be a tight race. The Planning Committee has assembled a larger Blogger Panel to assist with the selection of finalists from among the top vote-getters and winners from among those finalists.
Bloggers who wish to be recognized for their efforts by being included as a finalist for a Plutus Award should make sure they take this time to generate votes from their audiences. Initial voting will end on August
14 17th, so there is not much time to ensure your blog is considered for a finalist spot. Here is how you can have your audience vote for your blog.
