I figured it’s been a while since I hosted a giveaway contest here at Modest Money. In the past I would give away cash or physical prizes like iPads. That stuff is cool and all, but it doesn’t really seem to fit in with a personal finance blog. Sure the cash might help your finances, but for a lot of people a windfall like that is going to be spent on something unnecessary instead.
It all makes me think of the saying “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for life.”
So as a more responsible giveaway I’m giving away extremely helpful financial knowledge. It might not be as flashy as cash or electronics, but it’s going to help you a lot more.
With this giveaway I rounded up 10 personal finance bloggers who have published books. That way you can get solid advice instead of just reading about my mistakes. Up for grabs is 2 ebook copies of each blogger’s book. So with 20 total winners your odds should be pretty good.
Here are the eBooks that we are giving away:
7 Investing Steps That Will Make You Wealthy from Money Smart Guides
Achieving Debt Freedom from A Disease Called Debt
Confessions of a Professional Blogger from Miranda Marquit
How to Get Rich; Without Winning the Lottery – A Guide to Money & Wealth Building from Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance
How to Save Money: A 21-Day Challenge to Save $500/m from Christian PF
Intentional Living for the Young Professional: A step-by-step guide to creating your life plan from The Financegirl
Stock Market Investing for Newbies from Money Ahoy
Train Your Way to Financial Fitness from Financially Blonde
Quite the impressive list of books. Even if you won’t win any of them, I suggest you consider purchasing them.
This giveaway runs from September 10th to 30th 2014. The contest is open to anyone to enter. Entering the contest is easy – check out the entry options in the module below:
