Honestly I can’t believe that it’s been a year already. I started this blog a year ago today with the intention of sharing my thoughts and advice on finance, money and the business world. Looking back I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished, not only with the content I’ve provided but with how much this blog has grown and even all I’ve been able to learn about internet marketing, web programming and design. I’ve truly had a good run and I’m very much looking forward to another great year. To celebrate the birthday of Debit versus Credit I’m sporting a brand new redesigned website and sponsoring a great contest as well. Keep reading for the details!
I’ve been working on creating a custom WordPress theme to power this blog with over the past several months, and while I’m going to say it’s still not complete it’s good enough I think to kick off year 2 with a bang. May I present to you a brand new redesign for Debit versus Credit! How do you like it? Please leave me your comments and vote on the poll in the sidebar as well. I’d really like to hear what you like about it and even what you don’t like about it. This is the first time I’ve ever done this and I probably still have a lot to learn! So hit me with your best shot!
Finally I want to present to all of you a present from me, to you. I’m going to be sponsoring the first contest ever to be hosted at Debit versus Credit. There will be three prizes (these may be subject to change – a grand prize, first prize and a second prize. For the grand prize I’ll be sending you $25 and a pre-release version of a book called Scratch Beginnings, which is written by Adam Shepard. The first prize will also receive a pre-release copy of Scratch Beginnings as well as $10 and the second prize will receive a copy of Scratch Beginnings. The contest will be running for about four weeks, starting today (Oct 6) and running through midnight on the 31st of October.
There are several ways to get an “entry” into this contest. Please note that in order to make it easier for me to track you’ll need to leave a comment in this post letting me know once you’ve fulfilled any (or all) of the entry requirements. Let me go ahead and list the entries for you now…
