If there is something you must know about me it’s that I can become very obsessed with something, someone, somewhere… very easily. Once my brain hones in on something, it’s VERY HARD to let it go until I do what I have to do.

I’m surprised I’m not a serial killer actually.

A few weeks ago, I watched a show all about people who Sweepstakes FULL TIME and who win BIG. I’m talking cars, HUGE cash prizes, trips. Everything! I decided to start up a new Facebook profile and email address and give it a go since I was on bed rest.

Did you notice I said WAS? Tonight I am officially RELEASED. More on that in a minute!!

Anyway, I’d say that I spent about an hour a day sweepstaking. I couldn’t do it more than that because I was only doing online sweeps and didn’t have many resources. These are the three sites I used:


  1. http://www.sweepsadvantage.com/
  2. http://www.sweepstakestoday.com/
  3. http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/

Full Disclosure! I only entered BIG contests or really easy contests. I didn’t enter any BLOGGER contests either. Just the main brands with the HUGE prizes. My odds were not so hot doing this – but I was still hopeful.

The results? I won a free ring tone and a coupon for Old Orchard juice. Anti-climatic isn’t it? BUT it’s not really over. All the contests I entered haven’t technically ended yet. There’s still a chance one might come through. Of course I’m being super optimistic but HEY… YOU NEVER KNOW.

Professional sweepstakers would probably laugh at this point. I don’t know what I thought was going to happen in 3 weeks. Well, I thought I would win a boat… but we won’t go there. LOL!

In the end, I will probably continue to lightly (a few times a week) enter sweepstakes. It doesn’t take that much effort and I work from home. It wasn’t totally annoying. It was fun. I like to gamble. I guess it’s a cheap way to do that.

So, I’m not a winner per SAY. But that still might all change.
