The Blunt Bean Counter Nominated for Plutus Award


I have just returned from an awesome Mediterranean cruise celebrating my 25th anniversary and in my jet lagged haze, today started reading through my favourite bloggers Friday Roundups.

I was somewhat shocked when Mark at My Own Advisor noted some Canadian blogs he knew that were nominated for Plutus Awards; The Blunt Bean Counter being one such blog. My blog was nominated in the category for the Best Tax-Focused Personal Finance Blog.

Being my usual oblivious self to the blogging world, I was not really aware of the Plutus Awards, which are an American based award handed out to the best blogs amongst North America’s community of personal finance and investing bloggers. The awards are handed out at the Financial Blogger Conference in Denver on September 6th.

I am the only Canadian blog in my category and I am thankful for the recognition.
