My Blogoversary Giveaway: Amazon Gift Cards and Books

It’s my blogoversary. I’ve always wanted to have one, and now I do. I intend to celebrate with a giveaway.

Winner update: The winners have been selected. See if you won.

Last November I started my own personal finance blog. It’s been going for a year, and I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped it grow. I enjoy my blog, and I love being a part of the personal finance blogger community.

To show my gratitude in some small way, I am having a contest. The prizes include:

  • $100 Amazon gift card
  • $50 Amazon gift card
  • (2) $25 Amazon gift cards
  • (4) groups of finance/business books

The gift cards will be emailed to the winners, which will be chosen randomly from the entrants, using, and I will mail the books out to those winners.

You can earn multiple entries by Liking Planting Money Seeds on Facebook (2 entries), following MMarquit on Twitter (1 entry), and by leaving a comment (2 entries).

Also, get 3 entries by tweeting the following:

Win a $100 Amazon gift card and other prizes from @MMarquit

The contest will run until November 30, at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time.

Here’s how to enter:

Follow the links above to Like the blog on Facebook and follow me on Twitter, and copy  and paste the the tweet and send it out. Leave a comment. If you’re already a fan on Facebook, or a follower on Twitter, let me know in the comment, so I can count those entries. Since Rafflecopter is totally letting me down (and it could be my fault, but Rafflecopter support hasn’t got back to me, so I don’t want to worry about it), we’re doing this old school. You can earn a total of 8 entries by following the above steps. I’ll use the spreadsheet and method to choose the winners.

Update: Please just leave one comment. You don’t need to leave one comment for each action. Please combine your actions into ONE comment. You will only get 2 entries TOTAL for any comments on this post, NOT 2 entries for each comment you leave.

    Congratulations Miranda! I’m glad to see you doing so well with all this, I’m a bit jealous, I must say!

      How are you doing Ben? I try to keep on with you on FB, but sometimes things get lost. I worry about you a lot, though, since I know life is challenging. Anyway, keep at it; you can do it :) I’m fortunate enough that I had already been blogging professionally for several years before I started this blog. Good luck to you!

  32. Jenny says:

    Congratulations on your one-year blogoversary, I am pleased to have recently discovered your posts. I am working on building a better financial future and would actually appreciate the books quite a bit. Of course it is always a pleasure to score deals at Amazon.
