Money Crashers PFN Network and Give-a-way Feedback

I’ve been patiently watching the ranking of The Money Drain on Money Crasher’s Top Personal Finance Blogs, and we stayed pretty much at 479 persistently. Today however, I noticed we jumped up to 459 (and subsequently back to 460), theoretically due to the give-a-way campaign I did with I still have a lot of work to do in order to climb that listing, but it does give me a little boost of motivation to see us start to climb already, no matter how slowly.

I have also removed my account for text link ads because it was 1. overwhelmingly adding more links that I’d like, and 2. wasn’t bringing in much revenue at all. So no more ugly double-lined links.

I submitted guest post ideas to some more of the top personal finance blogs, but the results have all been the same, no response 🙂 I’m unsure why that is, but I’m going to keep trying different blogs and hopefully I’l get a bite.

I also forgot to announce that three winners were chosen for the contest of three $25 gift card winners. There were 617 entries in the contest, and I plan to compile a lot of the information that the contestants submitted on how they throw money down the drain in a future post. Some of them were extremely amusing, but you could also see a common pattern among them. Should be interesting to review.
