Don’t forget! Consumerism Commentary is in the running to win a few Plutus Awards. The Plutus Awards are designed to celebrate the best personal finance resources such as books, savings accounts, and blogs. Vote here now before the deadline on March 16. The finalists were selected from among those that received the highest number of nominations in each category.
To be honest, since I created the awards, I am not completely comfortable being in the final running. If I do happen to win a Plutie — and given the number of fans some of the larger blogs have, it’s unlikely — I will pass the prize along to the next highest in the category.
