Five Year Blogoversary Giveaway

It is hard to believe that it has been five years since I started this blog. Five years is actually kinda old for a blog. This blog was started back in 2007 because I wanted to write a blog about my own personal finances which were much more modest than most of the personal finance bloggers around back then. I was already writing my Bank Bonuses blog at that time but I wanted to keep it focused on its niche. A lot has happened since I started this blog: I finished law school,traveled,moved,got married, passed the bar. And I’ve kept blogging through all of it. I think any success that this blog has achieved can be attributed to the simple fact that I didn’t stop blogging. As the saying goes,80% of success is just showing up. That I am able to make a living from my blogging is something I didn’t think would happen a couple of years ago and it is a happy reality for now.

To celebrate five years I’m having a giveaway that consists of all the personal finance books I have that I no longer want and a $5 Amazon Gift Card. The books are Can I Retire?: How Much Money You Need to Retire and How to Manage Your Retirement Savings, Explained in 100 Pages or Less, this is a great book on retirement but it isn’t that great of a coaster so the book does have some water damage; The Vigilant Investor: A Former SEC Enforcer Reveals How to Fraud-Proof Your Investments; The Monopoly Method: An Insider’s Guide to Navigating Wall Street and Becoming a Better Investor: Make Decisions Faster, Make Them More Profitable, and Make Them with Less Risk; The Globe-Trotting Golfer’s Guide to Retirement, this book is signed to me but maybe your name is Andy too; The Digital Diet: The 4-step plan to break your tech addiction and regain balance in your life; Z.E.O.: How to Get A(Head) in Business (Zen of Zombie Series); Global Millionaire and the CreditCard.com book of Cartoons.

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. One entry per person and all other usual rules apply. The winner will be chosen at random next Wednesday,February 8,2012.

  1. Congratulations on making it five years. I started a blog back in 1997… I don’t even think the word “blog” existed then. It was more of a diary and didn’t last too long. Truth be told, Tight Fisted Miser played a big role in me deciding to give it another shot by starting My Frugal Miser, so thanks for the inspiration.
