Raffle tickets. Source: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alykat/5848722/Welcome to my six month giveaway contest! On September 29th, it will have been six months since Invest It Wisely began. I can’t believe that almost six months have already passed since I started blogging.

It’s been a great six months. I have gotten to know many great readers and fellow bloggers, joined the Yakezie, a great community of finance bloggers, and most importantly, I have enjoyed it every step of the way.

As a thank you to everyone who has helped me, supported me, and given valuable feedback along the way, I’ve decided to throw a six month blog anniversary bash! My site is where it is thanks to you, so I’d like to give something back. The contest is now closed; thank you all for your participation!


First, I want to give a big thank you to my very generous fellow bloggers who have decided to sponsor this event along with me. Thank you very much!

I gave away a bonus prize for promoting these very cool bloggers; please see below for more details!

  8. Julie Lutz says:

    I love the information on this website. The six month giveaway attracted me and now I’m here to stay. I’ve just become a subscriber but already I’ve learned so much. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and education. I don’t know what I would want more of in the future since I’ve just started reading your blogs but so far its been very helpful. I do wonder what you would suggest for someone on disability to do to save money. Or if its at all possible.


    • Kevin says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Julie! I imagine that the tips for someone on disability would be the same as for anyone else: Increase income, reduce expenses, and save. The person on disability has a harder road to climb, unfortunately, but many jobs today do not require full use of your limbs. In my job as a computer programmer and my hobby as a blogger, I can’t imagine that I make much use of my legs at all.

      I appreciate your comment, and I will think about what I can write on that topic!

    I’ve been looking through your archives, and you’ve had a busy six months. I’m impressed by blogs that are tended to regularly, and your content is important and useful. Looking forward to your future posts, and to catching up on what I’ve missed. Congratulations on your anniversary!

    PS I tried to subscribe by email, but the click-on button wouldn’t work—–does it need a repair, or is it just me?

  14. […] Get feedback from your users with Google Forms. Finally, the ability to embed forms directly into your website by using Google Forms, and having the results go directly into a Google Spreadsheet saves you the trouble of having to hand-code a form yourself, or collecting submissions via email and then compiling the data by hand! You can see an example of a Google Form in action by visiting my six-month giveaway. Be sure to check it out. […]
