Well, a busy week on My Own Advisor.   Thanks to Avrom’s killer work this site got a new look and is running faster than ever.  I hope you liked the reveal folks…!

It’s time to nominate your favourite blogs and bloggers for the 4th Annual Plutus Awards. The awards ceremony, hosted by Kevin from Thousandaire and Rewards Boost, will be held in St. Louis on October 17th at the U.S. Financial Blogger Conference.   I encourage you to vote for My Own Advisor here in any of these categories:  Best Investing-Focused Personal Finance Blog, Best Canadian Personal Finance Blog, Best Designed Personal Finance Blog or any other relevant category 🙂

Thanks for your continued support.  I enjoy running the site, I hope you enjoy reading and stopping by.

Congratulations to Axel for winning the autographed copy of The Behavior Gap by Carl Richards.  Hopefully the book will make its way overseas to him in one piece.   It’s nice to hear from readers in Switzerland and beyond.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by the blog and entered the giveaway.  Maybe I’ll do another one this fall.

Enjoy the Weekend Reading list and take care.
