With the official close of the Digital Camera Giveaway at 11:59pm EST on Christmas Eve, and after having getting the list of new email subscribers confirmed from The Million Dollar Journey there was a grand total of 111 entries between comments, Email subscriptions, referrals and posts about the contest on other blogs. Thank you to everyone who participated!
I have to thank FrugalTrader for having the idea to hold the contest in the first place. He is the author of The Million Dollar Journey, one of Canada’s top personal finance blogs. Also, many thanks to Derek from RedFlagDeals.com for sponsoring both the original contest and for agreeing to hold over the prize for the winner of this contest. Please be sure to visit both sites if you can – the more support we show for our sponsors, the more likely they are to sponsor future contests! :)
And now for the moment you have all been waiting for! Without further adieu, the winner is: "JK". Congratulations JK and thank you to everyone who entered the contest.
I have just sent an email to you JK, but if you didn’t get it, please contact me for details on how to claim your prize!
The contest was a success as during the past week we increased RSS subscriptions by 33% and Email Subscriptions increased from 0 to 40 (I had just added that feature). This blog is still in it’s infancy, but since the first full month of existence (August 2007) we have managed an average increase in traffic by 52% per month – all thanks to YOU.
With the success of this contest I have decided I will be running numerous more contests for 2008 – so stay tuned! I’m going to be giving away books, DVD’s and other prizes throughout the year – so if you didn’t win this time, your turn may soon come… :)
One last thing: I elf’d myself. For those of you who have not yet witnessed these videos, allow me to share this holiday video card with you for your entertainment. It takes about 15 seconds to load on highspeed, but is well worth the wait if you want to see me dressed as an elf doing a jig… ENJOY!
Happy Holidays everyone.
