Have you developed a creative way of eliminating debt, building your savings or earning extra money? Do your friends envy the way you always seem to find the best deals and bargains? Are you working on a long-term plan that will significantly impact your financial freedom or have you successfully achieved a financial goal? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," GetRichSlowly.org wants to hear from you.
GetRichSlowly.org--the top-ranked finance blog on Technorati--has launched the 2010 GetRichSlowly.org Video Contest. The contest is calling on the Web site's readers to submit a short video for one of two entry categories: Personal Finance Tips and Success Stories. Contestants can review official entry rules and submit videos through April 15, 2010 by visiting http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/videocontest/2010. Each participant may submit up to two entries in each category.
Winners will be chosen by GetRichSlowly editor J.D. Roth, author of the recently published book, Your Money: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly), based on creativity and originality, compelling content, popularity and usefulness to the GetRichSlowly.org community.
"GetRichSlowly.org has grown into an amazing community of everyday folks who help each other tackle financial problems," said Roth of the Web site, which now garners half a million visitors every month. "Since 2006, I have joined other writers in sharing stories about debt elimination, saving money and frugality. Now it's our readers' turn to tell their stories."
So pull out your video cameras and start recording. A grand prize of $500 will be awarded to one winner in each entry category, in addition to ten honorable mentions in both categories who will receive an autographed copy of Your Money: The Missing Manual. Contest participants who have their own Web site can automatically be considered for a third $500 grand prize by submitting a video in either the Personal Finance Tips or Success Stories category and tagging it according to official entry guidelines. The winning Web site will also be featured on GetRichSlowly.org.
This is an opportunity to contribute to an online community that hundreds of thousands of readers turn to for advice on everything from finding the best high-yield savings account and understanding IRS audits to eating healthy while not breaking the bank and creating homemade gifts to save money.
