How It Works

What’s Unique About The Money Mix

The Money Mix is the first and only regular “round-up”or “best of” series of its kind.

It’s curated both for and by the personal finance community, featuring some of the newest, best posts within days (or even hours!) of their publishing.

On Monday through Friday, we bring you The Daily Mix, which includes the “Top 5” newest Money Blogs Feed posts from the day(s) before.

Each Saturday, we bring you The Weekly Mix, which includes the “Top 5” posts from The Daily Mix that week.

Once a month, we bring you The Monthly Mix, which includes the “Top 5” posts from the Weekly Mix for that month.

The “top” post from The Monthly Jukebox is then inducted into The Money Mix Hall Of Fame.

The Money Mix is the only series that highlights the best new personal finance blog posts.

You won’t see recycled content here. Just the best, newest content within days of its initial publishing.

The Money Mix is also the only series that gives you an active voice as the reader.

Your clicks on The Money Blogs Feed give us a “Top 10” list each day, which we actively narrow down to a “Top 5.”

Our role in curation helps prevent posts with excessive self-clicking or click-bait titles from dominating The Daily Mix (though catchy titles are encouraged!).

Winners of The Daily Mix and The Weekly Mix, who are featured on The Weekly Mix and The Monthly Mix, respectively, are chosen solely by your poll votes.

Here are more of the specifics about how The Money Mix works:

The Daily Mix

Each day, we identify the “Top 10” personal finance blog posts based on the number of out-clicks from The Money Mix Money Blogs Feed and use that data to narrow the posts down to a daily “Top 5,” also known as The Daily Mix.

Curating The Daily Mix helps ensure the posts rising to the “top of the feed” are truly the best new personal finance posts.

On Tuesday through Friday, The Daily Mix includes the “Top 5” personal finance blog posts from the day before. And on Monday, The Daily Mix includes the “Top 5” personal finance blog posts from Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The top post from each day of The Daily Mix, based on the number of votes, goes on to The Weekly Mix.

The polls open for each edition of The Daily Mix upon publishing and close at 8 PM on Friday of that week.

Each reader is allowed one vote per poll, per day. But it’s fine to encourage others to vote for a great post if you’ve already cast your vote for a day!

The Weekly Mix

Each Saturday, we take the the top personal finance blog posts from The Daily Mix, based on your poll votes, and make a “Top 5” list for the whole week called The Weekly Mix.

The top post from each week of The Weekly Mix, based on the number of votes, goes on to The Monthly Mix.

The polls open for each edition of The Weekly Mix upon publishing and close at 11:59 PM on Sunday, the next day.

Each reader is allowed one vote per poll, per day. But it’s fine to encourage others to vote for a great post if you’ve already cast your vote for a day!

The Monthly Mix

Each month, we take the top personal finance blog post from each week of The Weekly Mix, based on your poll votes from The Weekly Mix posts, and make a Top 5 list for the whole month called The Monthly Mix.

The winner of The Monthly Mix is the blog post that received the most votes associated with its feature on The Weekly Jukebox.

Winners of The Monthly Mix become inductees into The Money Mix Hall Of Fame, and if the writer’s blog is profitable, the winner is encouraged to Join The Giving by making a donation to the food charity of their choice.

If you’re a personal finance content creator, there’s a good chance that, sooner or later, you’ll get “Mixed!”
