This is the fourteenth KC Awards weekly recognition of personal finance bloggers. You may be curious about the recognition! Each week, the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers will recognize some bloggers with the KC (pronounced casey) award. What is the KC award? First it is more symbolic than anything else. What is the origin?
Nearly five hundred (500) years ago in The Netherlands (Holland), the word krant (Dutch) meant newspaper, journal, magazine, gazette, or periodical. Interestingly, it still does! In French, krant is courant which means informed on current affairs, up to date and knowledgeable.What are the Dutch known for? Holland is the land of explorers, windmills, wooden shoes, pancakes, canals, dikes, levees, flowers (tulips), cheese, and great artists (Dutch Masters). They are also known for their frugality! The blog krantcents is a combination of a knowledgeable, current, newspaper, focusing on frugality. Krantcents established the KC awards to recognize the best articles each week.
Rules: The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Retweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.
This week the following personal financial blogs are recognized with a KC (pronounced casey) award:
Car Negotiation Coach – “Would you drive a “wrapped” rental car to save money?”
