Thanks for mentioning PFStock in your post. I’m also giving away a personal finance book (Farnoosh Torabi’s “Psych Yourself Rich”), and tax preparation software (H&R Block). CSN is the most popular giveaway, but the based the entries so far, the odds are still very good to win either the book or tax software. Look under the “Giveaways” tab on my blog for details.

I hope this brings you more entrants for the giveaways!
