Nickel And His Booby Prize

Since I have not yet met a person that does not appreciate winning free stuff, I have to bring your attention to a Blog Anniversary Contest that is being put on by FiveCentNickel.

You’ll notice that I have a link to Nickel in my *Mo’ Money* section as I think his blog is one of the premier personal finance blogs, along with My New Choice of course. In the event you are not familiar with Nickel, I would encourage you to start with his welcome page that highlights some of his finer posts.

Head to Head
Back in March, Free Money Finance ran a March Madness tournament and it was not a big surprise to see that the championship round came down to FiveCentNickel and Raising4Boys. Oh yeah, did I mention that Raising4Boys is actually another site that Nickel runs along with his wife.

During that tournament, I had the opportunity (or maybe I should say misfortune) to be matched up against one of Nickel’s most popular posts of all time. Needless to say, I came out on the losing side of that matchup although I felt I held my own as I only lost by 2 votes. Here were the two posts:

Where is the booby prize?
Okay, so you’re probably wondering where the booby prize comes into play in all of this discussion about FiveCentNickel. As I mentioned earlier, Nickel is running a contest to celebrate his 2-year blogging anniversary. There are some great prizes up for grabs in this contest, including: 2GB iPod Nano, 1GB iPod Shuffle and a 5GB USB drive.

To keep things interesting, Nickel is also including a booby prize where one *lucky* winner will receive a box of bricks shipped to their door! In all of the contests that I have seen, I have to admit that I haven’t seen anything quite that original or humorous.

Be sure to stop by Nickel’s site and tell him that MyNewChoice sent you!
