Sorry, but the Giveaway is Over. Don’t let that keep you from reading and enjoying the rest of the blog, though.
Wow. Just, wow. This is the 1000th post I have put up here on The Amateur Financier. I am completely, utterly, and totally shocked that I’ve managed to make it this far in my blogging career. That I would be still be blogging, putting up articles on a regular basis every week, four years and four months later, is stunning, really.
It has been a long and rough road making it here, and more than once during these past several years I’ve been tempted to give up on blogging for one reason or another. It’s not an easy task, writing so many articles covering personal finance issues, doing the research needed to support those articles, and otherwise being a diligent blogger. Without the support and encouragement of my readers and my many fellow bloggers, I’m not sure if I would still be doing this.
And so, it is with great pleasure that I am proud to announce that I’m going to be celebrating this milestone by rewarding those people most responsible for me continuing this blog: my readers. Yes, you, my wonderful, wonderful and supportive readers, this is your chance to benefit from my success with this blog, besides simply getting more entertaining, interesting, and otherwise wonderful blog posts, of course. In short, it’s GIVEAWAY TIME!
Below is the giveaway with three cash prizes ($100, $50, and $25) to be won by three of my readers. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below sharing what you’d like to see me write about in the next 1000 articles I post to get several chances to win If that’s not enough, you can also follow my Twitter feed, like my Facebook page, and tweet about the contest (up to every day, if you really want) for additional chances to win.
The giveaway will continue from now until June 30th, providing you with plenty of opportunities to enter. On July 1st, I will select three winners, contact them, and give them 48 hours to respond and collect their prize. If one or more winner does not respond, I will select additional winner(s) and repeat the process. Good luck to everyone, and here’s to a thousand more posts and beyond!
