Sharing That Winning Feeling!!Posts RSS Comments RSS

My winning hobby

Ok, so I’ve finally got this blog looking closer to something I am happy with. I will probably continue to change the theme and tweak it, but hey, that’s just me :)

It’s after midnight here, we’ve had a really busy father’s day today, had a great day and the weather was nice which is a change from the last few days. Mr 18 months has had a tummy bug but thankfully is now sound asleep so fingers crossed I get more sleep tonight than last.

That’s enough about that for now :) I thought I’d write a quick intro into who I am, about my hobby and what I look forward to sharing with everyone on this blog…..

My hobby has changed my life. I have experienced amazing things I’d never have shared with my family otherwise…..

2 years ago I was feeling a bit down about not earning money and contributing to the household. I was studying at Uni to do Nursing, with 2 kiddies aged 3 and 1, really I just needed something I would enjoy that would possibly help help our family out in some way. Introducing my saviour…… “Comping”

Comping is a name used for entering competitions on a regular basis. I know in the U.S. they refer to competitions as sweepstakes and use the word sweeping, in the U.K. it’s the same as here in Australia. No matter what it’s called, comping or sweeping is lots of fun and it can open doors you never dreamed of going through in your lifetime.

In 2 years I have won about $70,000 in prizes of all sorts. I have won everything from holidays to camera’s and ipods. Fridges to clothing… you name it, if you want it, chances are there is a competition out there somewhere to win it!!

Now, because I am really tired, I am going to cut short here and head to bed, but before I go I just have to say that I was not “born lucky”. Until I started this hobby I had never won much of anything. ANYONE can change their lives with comping or “sweeping”. Anyone has the possibility of winning amazing prizes.

Companies worldwide give away billions of dollars each year in prizes, and if someone has to win it, it  might as well be you (or me :P :))

This blog I would love to share what I have won over the last 2 years, how I’ve won it, what I’ve learnt along the way, what amazing things I have experienced, and of course keep up to date with my latest wins and entries.

There’s so much to write about, I look forward to sharing it with you
