You read that right! I'm giving away $1000 of my own hard earned money in cold hard cash this Christmas in what I hope will be one of the biggest giveaways the Canadian personal finance blogging scene has ever seen.
In addition, I’m going to be contacting every Canadian personal finance blogger I know and imploring them to donate additional cash and prizes by begging on my hands and knees to make this one of the best giveaways ever! Of course, I will thank them profusely for this and write them a huge IOU for helping me up the ante and give out some amazing prizes to my amazing readers.
Why I’m Doing It
You might think I’m rich or that this blog generates a ton of income for me, but trust me when I tell you that $1000 is more than this blog has generated in income in a looong time. I make way less money per hour here than a minimum wage worker at Tim Hortons does, that’s for sure!
You see, I’m actually making up for lost time with this giveaway because I’ve always meant to do an anniversary giveaway celebrating my blog getting one year older ever since I launched this thing back in 2010, but I never followed through. So I decided, why wait any longer and why wait for the next anniversary to roll around? Christmas is a time when everyone needs some extra money and the spirit of giving is in full swing, so now is the perfect time.
I’m also hoping that this giveaway will help me expand my readership and reach out to people who would never hear about HowToSaveMoney.ca otherwise and I think that’s good for everyone. Even if you don’t win the giveaway, learning to save money without cutting back by reading my articles is already worth the price of admission – FREE.
