What Makes The Money Jukebox Unique
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 such 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.
