3 Year Blog Anniversary – Win an iPod!

One week from today makes a whopping 3 years since I started this fine blog. I originally did it because I was bored at work and I wanted to dispense some financial advice after reading so much during my free time.

Over the past 3 years, I’ve learned a lot about personal finance, a lot about blogging, and a lot about myself. I also learned that anybody can write, but it takes readers to make it really special.

As a big thank you, I’m going to give away an iPod I got for work to one lucky reader! You know, because my company has the best perks. It’s still in its box and plastic wrapping, but the truth is I have an iPhone and don’t need another iPod.

The rules for entering are really simple (described below), and the easiest way to enter is by answering this question:

What’s the best piece of financial advice you’ve ever gotten?

  1. The best piece of financial advice I have ever gotten is… to start investing early, and keep at it consistently over the long run, and good things will happen!

  2. The best advice I ever got was to get out and stay out of debt…I just wish I’d gotten it before I got into debt in the first place!

  3. Invest not only for yourself but your children. That way they don’t need to worry as much when there time comes for retirement.

  4. The best piece of financial advice I have ever gotten was to have 20% of my paycheck (after RRSP deductions) direct-deposited into a separate savings account. I got used to taking care of business and handling daily affairs with the remaining (80%) money. Every 4 months I would invest the total of this separate account for the ‘long term’.

  5. the best finacial advice i ever got was from jim rohn dvd “profits are better than wages,wages make you a living profits make you a fortune”

  6. The best advice I got was to consolidate student loans years ago, just before the rate hike. Congrats on your anniversary!

  7. To use two credit cards on a monthly basis and pay them off monthly. Not only have I earned tons of money in cash back rewards, but built up my credit.

  8. To be happy with your money you must save some, spend some,and give some away.

    And pay cash as often as possible to avoid debt.

  9. The best piece of financial advice I have ever gotten was not to impulse shop. Walk away and think about purchasing something for at least a day and then decide if you really need or want the item. This has saved me alot of money!

  10. To pay your bills immediately when you get paid so you won’t spend that money

  11. The best piece of advice is to pay bills on time and if you have any left think about if you really need the item at the store and if you dont need it walk away and buy something you really need.

  12. I have 2 best pieces of financial advice I’ve been given. The first one may be too radical for this blog, but here goes: Tithe. Not from obligation, but as a grateful believer in Jesus, I tithe. SOmeone told me when I was a young fellow that if I tithed, I couldn’t outgive God. It was true, although defying fiscal laws, I can honestly say that when I tithe, I am blessed by things of a financial nature more than the amount that I tithe. And not so much when I do not. Weird, but true.

    Advise #2: An old crusty Master Sergeant told me that I should save 1/2 of all raises I got during the course of my military career, and enjoy the other 1/2. Unfortunately, I did not follow that advice, but became a crusty old Master Sergeant that wished he had the 1.4 million dollars like the old guy who gave me the advice ended up with!

  13. live on half your pay and save the rest.You ll never be broke a day in your life

  14. It’s not exclusively financially related, but it’s certainly relevant. My best advice ever received was this:

    Work hard.

  15. Make sure you max out the company matching program for money into the 401k and to save whenever possible

  16. The best piece of advice is to spend less than what you bring in then invest your savings wisely.

  17. I’ve entered the contest, subscribed, followed, etc. A new ipod would be great.

  18. The best advice I got was from my dad….and its to keep a monthly budget! And..keep it up! Put everything into categories and have monthly amounts for each category….has helped so much to see where you spend your money…and save for those larger things that come your way!

  19. Best piece of advise for me: round up all purchases to the next dollar when writing down in your checkbook… those extra pennies will add up and move them over to savings.

  20. The best piece of financial advice I’ve ever gotten was to never tell anybody how much money you really have.

  21. To put away money every week no matter how much it is, and to invest in real estate.

  22. always have a rainy day fund. you never know when life is going to kick you in the butt.

  23. Congrats toward your 3 years of blogging and thanks for making this giveaway available to us.The best advice I was ever given was to stay away from credit cards-did I listen ????
