Community In Action – Contest Edition

by The Happy Rock on August 4, 2007

I don’t normally do a lot of link posts, but I think that is going to change. First, I totally appreciate whenever someone publicly appreciates my work. Second, it builds community which is a key part of growth. Third, I think it will provide value to The Happy Rock community. Hopefully the links will be helpful and informative. If you don’t feel like these type of posts are providing value, please let me know. If you appreciate them, again let me know.

There were a few contests that I came across in the last few weeks that I thought I would bring some attention to.

carnival prizes contestMark @ Financing Your Family is offering a 500 word review for the comment with the best use for $100 a month.

Christine @ Create Business Growth is starting a weekly comment contest for a randomly drawn relevant comment. This week’s prize is $50!

INVESP Consulting is hosting another random drawing for people who subscribe to their feed and are there long enough to read the secret post sometime in August. The prize will be $300, $400, or $800 depending on some conditions.

And now a couple a great posts from the finance community.

No Credit Needed had the best article of the week with 7 questions to assess whether you are really want to beat your debt.

Digerati Life has a well done article on sub-prime lending. The list of how people become victims is applicable to everyone seeking a mortgage.

If I kind find some Brasso, this article about fixing scratches on CDs will come in handy.

Finally, Trent @ The Simple Dollar has a nice article on how he helps his 20 month old cope with wanting to buy toys. It is very nice to see other thoughtful parents in action.

Hello Happy Rock,
I want to say thank you for the shout out! I’m all for the link posts. I did not used to do it in the past but have now been doing it regularly. I think it does build community and keeps us connected. So yes, I like linked posts :). It may not be as exciting as pure content, but it has its place. -SVB

Thanks for the mention and for the great links! I’m definitely going to make use of those CD repair methods – my kids have destroyed so many that it’s getting depressing. I’m glad your linking out – you’ve exposed me many blogs that I hadn’t known about previously and I appreciate that!
