The sweepstakes world is so different than from years ago when winning was easy. I am sending you lucky vibes to win something really wonderful very, very soon. Hang in there. We all love this hobby so much, and the thrill of getting a win is the best feeling. I feel your luck is changing for the better.

do you enter blog contests? I have found most of my wins come from them. I have not won as much lately, maybe once every 3-4 months now (used to be several wins a month).

Could not agree more !! It's been a very long time for me too and while I don't spend any less time entering, there just aren't the sweeps out there with the big prizes like there used to be. But, I'll keep trying, it only takes one entry to win !!!!! GLTA !!

I was going to ask that question too. Blogs have been what keeps me winning at least once a month and then every so often I'll win a regular sweep. Won a blog one today, a de-shedding tool to use on my cats. Something I desperately needed as my older cat has been having a major hairball issue lately. Can't wait to try it!



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I can't imagine a dry spell so long. Must not do blogs but even so this year alone I up to 72 wins on the year and about a dozen or so of these are not blog wins. How many do you enter a day? And what type sweepstakes do you enter?

If only robocalls counted, I'd won numerous times these last couple weeks.

Ditto. 92 prizes ($23K) here to date. I rarely enter blogs. Just have to find what works for you and what you want to win. I mostly enter for cash & gift cards.
