I started this site 6 months ago and I’m so grateful for the support that has been shown. A lot has happy in the last 6 months, going from house hunting to moving out of our apartment while the dispute with the new place went on (they raised the rent too high), finding a temporary apartment, and then moving from there to the town house when everything cleared out.
I was working my freelance job and a temporary job since we were getting a place. I joined The Yakezie Challenge and have met some wonderful bloggers. I also ended up selling a website I created and worked on for years to focus on projects like Couple Money.
It’s been a great six months and I wanted to have a contest as a way of saying thank you.
Since this website is about working towards financial freedom by following your passions, I wanted to have a prize that would be practical for Couple Money readers and help them on their own journey.
What can you do with a netbook?
I know many of you blog, so having a netbook to travel and write can be a handy thing. Some of you want to build up freelance work; you can work on side projects during or lunch breaks. Perhaps you want to organize a fundraiser for personal cause, having a netbook is a handy tool.
The point is many of you are creative and driven people so I think giving a netbook would be a great prize.
For those who are curious about the netbook, here’s some specs:
Asus 10.1″ Netbook – Crystal Black
- Windows 7 Starter
- Processor Type: Intel Atom
- Hard Drive Capacity: 250 GB
- Black neoprene bag with pockets for flash drives and small accessories
- Optical mini mouse with USB interface
