How It Works

What’s Unique About The Money Jukebox

The Money Jukebox 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 Jukebox, which includes the “Top 5” newest Money Blogs Feed posts from the day(s) before.

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

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

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

The Money Jukebox 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 Jukebox 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 Jukebox (though catchy titles are encouraged!).

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

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

The Daily Jukebox

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 Jukebox.

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

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

The polls open for each edition of The Daily Jukebox 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 Jukebox

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

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

The polls open for each edition of The Weekly Jukebox 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 Jukebox

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

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

Winners of The Monthly Jukebox 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.

Other Stuff

The Money Jukebox is, well, a jukebox. And jukeboxes are known for their quirky selections.

On any given edition of The Money Jukebox, we may throw in something different like a podcast, recipe, or quote.

We may even include some unexpected posts as part of the mix.

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