Money Madness @ FreeMoneyFinance

Written by dad - One Comment

As you may or may not know, FreeMoneyFinance is running a “March Madness” contest for finance-related weblog entries. In late February, he solicited entries (up to four per site) and put together a huge tournament bracket. Starting last week, he’s been post batches of “games” that pit individual posts against each other in head-to-head competition.

Once the games are posted, readers get to vote, and the winners advance to the next round. Round 1 is now complete, and I’m pleased to announce that Raising4Boys and FiveCentNickel went a combined 6-1 (with a first round bye for one article). Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Congatulations on great results. And good luck the rest of the tournament. Looks like my “conference” will need to submit a stronger slate next year:-) My Wealth Builder was 1-3 in round 1, with two losses to your excellent posts.
