Today is Couple Money‘s 1st anniversary and I wanted to say thank you to all the support readers and bloggers have shown.
I have been fortunate to have many people take the time to chat with me and learn about the site. Some of the more popular personal finance bloggers took notice and have helped me get the word out on Couple Money.
- Moolanomy Forum Members – too numerous to include all of them!
- Yakezie Network
- Jason from Frugal Dad
- Matt from Debt Free Adventure
- Nickel from Five Cent Nickel
I’m sorry if I missed any names, listing everyone would take a whole post in itself! Needless to say, blogging is a community effort and I’m grateful for the support.
Couple Money Laptop Giveaway
Like the last giveaway, I wanted to have a prize that would be practical for Couple Money readers and help them on their own financial and career journey. Many of you are creative and driven, so I think giving a laptop and kit would be a great prize.
It’s my sincere hope that you use it to achieve a personal goal of yours. For those who are curious about the laptop, here’s some specs:
Toshiba Silver 15.6″ Satellite Laptop PC *
- AMD Sempron Processor 2.1 GHz
- Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
- 250GB hard Drive
- 2 GB RAM
- DVD/CD Burner
- Quattro Qresolve New PC Setup Assistance ($79.98 value)
Laptop Prize Pack
- Canon Pixma PIXMA MX320 All-in-One Home Office Printer with Fax
- Inland Pro 15.6″ Black Notebook Laptop Bag
- 4GB USB Flash Drive
I can’t just give you a laptop without giving you the resources to use them to follow your passion. I’m also sending the winner two books.
The kit includes the basics of what you need to get your freelance dreams off the ground.
