    Okay, I screwed up and it only took me three days to figure it out.  I entered East Coast time realy early.  Now I understand I can go to the first entry, delete it and re-publish now and it will count for today.  Tomorrow and on will be entered after three o'clock Eastern...Correct???
    Second question..I entered by 'start a new hub' under personal finance.  I did not go to the contest sight.  Was that wrong?

    1. Simone Smith profile image92
      Simone Smithposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      The contest "sight" is actually the Personal Finance page on HubPages - we've just added extra contest information!
      And use the countdown clock on the contest page to track the deadlines - that's the best way to go!

    We have our winners for Day 2 of the contest!!

    • Staff Pick winner: Gordon Hamilton for How to Make the Most Money from Cashback Credit Cards
    • Daily Drawing Winner: Analana for Should You Give Your Kids a Credit Card?

    Again, Staff Picking was really tough, and took a lot of discussion.  We want to give an Honorable Mention today to Shil1978 for How To Calculate Net Worth and Create a Financial Plan; it was a very close runner-up!

    But wait! There's more!!!  An amazing gentleman of a Hubber and Day 1 Daily Drawing Winner jwsc101 has generously asked to pass on his prize to someone else, so we have picked a new winner for Day 1's Daily Drawing, and the winner is Pamela99 for Budgeting -Saving Money Tips!  Congrats, Pamela99, and I tip my hat to you, jwsc101, for kicking off the contest with such a generous gesture!!

          Hi-
            I was unable to determine if my topic fits into the contest or not.
            I took a totally different angle, and wrote about why government and big corporations are responsible for the current economic mess.
            If this hub is not seen as acceptable, I suppose someone will delete this post...that's ok...It's still within the Hub Mob parameters...where it is also posted.
