I'm excited to announce our very first giveaway at Successful Blogging. We've got so many brilliant writers and bloggers hanging out here I've wanted to think of a way to reward you for all your creative energy for ages.
Thanks to the top team at RocketFuel now I can. With hard cash too which you can spend on anything you like.
Since my goal is to motivate you to blog and keep you writing I thought this would be a great way to reward you for it.

Giveaway ends: Monday 28 November 2011 at midnight (GMT +10)
Winners announced: Friday 2 December 2011 with the cash transferred to you as soon as you send your bank account or PayPal details.

In case you're wondering I'm not being paid for writing this blog post but RocketFuel is providing the cash prizes so I hope this is a win-win for everyone: RocketFuel get noticed by more lovely bloggers while Successful Blogging readers get motivated to write a blog post and potentially rewarded with cash.
How to Enter in 3 Easy Steps
1. Just write a blog post on your own blog about anything. This can be the next blog post that you're about to publish or write anyway so it shouldn't create any extra work for you.
Stick to your usual topics and write in your usual tone but please keep it positive and uplifting.
2. At the end of the post include this sentence with the links intact:
This post was written for the cash giveaway by Successful Blogging and RocketFuel who connect brands with bloggers.
You can just copy and paste that sentence into your blog in visual editing mode. Please test the links work.
3. Leave a comment here including a link to your blog post.
Please note: This is not a writing competition. Your writing will not be judged, so there's no pressure to perform.
Just write or publish your usual blog post, add the linked sentence at the end and make sure we know about it by commenting here so you're entered into the giveaway.
Act now: Giveaway ends on Monday 28 November 2011 at midnight (GMT +10)
If you live in Australia and you apply to join RocketFuel you'll get two extra entries free.
Our three winners will be picked through a random draw which will be announced here. Keep your fingers crossed – it could be you.
That's it! Happy blogging and good luck. I'm looking forward to reading those blog posts and sending the cash.
