I’m your average white-collar professional living in beautiful San Francisco. While I was temporarily unemployed I decided to start entering sweepstakes online. I had won one once in high school and thought I could pass some time trying now. In three months I won over $3000 in prizes and loved every minute of it.
I decided to blog about my experiences. I know there are many sweepstakes blogs out there that promote the contests, but I want to highlight other aspects of sweepstakes (i.e. odds, community, greed, prizes, experiences, etc.). I then began to tweet about giveaway on Twitter.com, and guess what? Lots of people out there share my hobby! :)
I enjoyed blogging and tweeting so much that I decided to change industries. I am now working for a nonprofit doing Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Change.org, Social Vibe, etc.), but I'll never quit trying to win. This is a great hobby that may or may not pay off. I’m just going to have fun!
