As another thank you, this month’s giveaway prize is a $25 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal Cash AND a free copy of EITHER ONE of my eBooks – How I Make Money Blogging or Managing Your Monthly Nut!

All you need to do is subscribe to my newsletter and leave a single comment below by March 31, 2014 to enter to win!

It’s not required, but I’d appreciate it if you would leave a question for me as your single comment. The “Ask Crystal” section are way more fun if someone is asking me something, lol. Plus, these questions sometimes turn into blog posts. But if you’re plum out of ideas, feel free to say anything at all. :-)

I sincerely appreciate all of you!

3) The winner must be a newsletter subscriber and will be selected randomly and notified by email by the third day of the following month.

4) The prize will be held for 2 calendar days. If it isn’t claimed, a new winner will be randomly picked and contacted.
5) I reserve the right to reject comments that I consider spam or invalid entries.
6) An invalid or incorrect email address automatically disqualifies you from the drawing…it’s hard to contact a fake email…
7) Local laws, rules, and regulations apply.

  • Are you still enjoying your new home as much as you did when you bought it, or have you settled in now? We’re still enjoying our newer, bigger home a year after we bought it! Although I definitely don’t think we need anything bigger than this.

  • Are dog-sitting jobs going to be worth it to you financially? Specifically, does it cost more in gas to get back and forth and does feeding/walking/cuddling the li’l monsters take up too much of your time?
    On the bright side, there IS the “exercise while working” part…

    Glad to see that things were picking up by month’s end. Another good reason to have a nicely funded Emergency Fund available. An Emergency Fund is my current goal. Just the little bit I have already saved in 2014 helps me feel calmer and sleep better.

    I’m already a subscriber and downloaded your latest ebook for free! Thanks!

    I retired about a year ago and get a pension, but some extra income would be nice! I’m not creative enough to be a blogger/writer, but I wouldn’t mind having some sort of online or stay at home business. Do you have any suggestions for legitimate ways to make money working from home? I’m so afraid of work at home scams!

  • Candice
