As the year winds down I’ve been thinking back at how far this blog has come already.

It seems like just last week it had a 22M Alexa Ranking and no Google PR. Back then I only had visitors if I commented on other blogs. I was happy to get 20 visitors a day. Modest Money has come a long way.

So to give thanks to everyone who has helped build up this blog, I’m hosting (and co-hosting) a few giveaway contests this month. The first giveaway starts today and is exclusive to Modest Money.

This giveaway contest is for $500 cash and various blogger services.

Here is the full breakdown of the prizes:

1st Prize: $250 Cash
5 Consolation Cash Prizes: $50
Ouch‘ book by Paul Knott

Blogger Prizes:
2 Blog SEO Analysis Services (valued at $44.95 each)
2 Sidebar Links on ModestMoney.com active for 2 months
2 Guest Post Spots on ModestMoney.com linked from the Featured Post sidebar widget for 6 months

This contest runs from December 1st to December 29th 2012. If anyone without a blog wins one of the blogger prizes a new winner will be drawn. Cash prizes will be paid via paypal or Amazon gift card. Winners must respond within 24 hours of notification to claim prizes.

You are welcome to enter daily via the social sharing options.

Good luck everyone!
