I’m in Free Money Finance’s March Money Madness – Game 4!

Corey —  January 19, 2011

       For the last few years, Free Money Finance has held a contest called March Money Madness (works like the college basketball competition). It gives bloggers a chance to highlight their best posts and see how they stack up to others. Additionally, FMF donates money to a charity of the blogger’s choice for the top 4 winners – $500 for 1st place, $300 for 2nd, and $100 each for 3rd and 4th.

       This year I’ll have two posts in the competition – one from a regular submission and another for having a top article in the Best of Money Carnival. I’m playing for 50% to HOPE International and 50% to Mennonite Central Committee (or 100% to MCC if FMF doesn’t want to split the donations).

       This week I’m in Game 4 with “The Save 10% for Retirement Rule Is Stupid“, and I’m up against Craig at Money Help for Christians. He’s a good friend of mine and a great writer, but thankfully he’s got two posts in today’s competition. So if you’d like to support us both, leave a comment on today’s March Money Madness post saying “Game 3: Writer & Game 4: Stupid”. Thanks for your support!



Corey is currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in religion. While he enjoys learning and writing about Christianity, another one of his new passions is writing about personal finances in order to help others make wise decisions with their money.

  1. This is WAR! Ha. I actually like your article better than my own, unfortunately I probably spent more time on mine :).

  2. Hahaha! I’m sure yours took a lot of work. I found it helpful, but it might not be very broadly applicable since there seem to be very few who enjoy blogging, are good at it, and are successful at it. But it definitely had a lot of useful information for anyone interested. Thanks for the compliment, by the way!

    It looks like we’ll both be moving on based on the votes so far, but I’m sure we’ll meet up again. 😉

  3. But who did you vote for? :)

  4. This is great! Two writers for whom I have a ton of respect! Paul, I love your suggestion! I’ll go over and read all the posts now.

    I’m glad that you both were able to get 2 posts in!
