So I thought about writing a blog post whining about how I haven't won anything in a few weeks, and wondering if it was because I'm spending more time at work, working on the blog, or just losing sweepstakes steam. Then I shook the thought out of my mind and moved on- I have no right to complain. I've won more than I ever thought I would already and it's only been a few months. I'm still expecting two prizes and my Arizona trip finalization in the mail, so I also have that to look forward to.
But even though I didn't wake up to any congratulatory emails today, I still feel like it's been a day of little wins. Tuesdays are generally my day off and it's nice to have time to breathe and do whatever I need to do (volunteering, grocery shopping, lunch with friends...)
- SO MANY NEW TWITTER FOLLOWERS! I'm so excited to be participating in the January Twitter Blast and in only 2 days, my Twitter following has grown by more than 500 followers. As I find my voice and my niche with this blog, my Twitter followers really keep me going. I would be so excited if someone won a giveaway they found by following me!
- FREEEEE TARGET GIFT CARD! My $10 Target gift card came today. I had almost forgotten that it was coming so it was a nice surprise in the mail. All I had to do was sign up for Ebates, and you get a $10 gift card of your choice when you make any qualifying purchase. If you haven't joined Ebates already, what are you waiting for?? Just by doing my normal online Christmas shopping, I earned over $20 cash back, $5 for referring a friend, and $10 to Target. No extra effort, no strings attached!
- JINGIT PREPAID CARD! My Jingit prepaid Visa card came today and I just activated it and loaded on almost $20 that I earned FOR DOING NOTHING! All Jingit asks you to do is watch a few ads a week and sometimes answer a question at the end. It's still in beta so earning is slow, but they have promised improvements and I'm not complaining- it's free money, after all.
- OVER 1,000 PAGE VIEWS since I installed Google Analytics on Jan. 2nd. Looking forward to keeping those numbers going up and posting more interesting stuff and giveaways.
*I SPOKE TOO SOON! 5:32pm: Just now received a winning email from Sheknows.com (which is crazy up to chance, because they feature sweeps with unlimited entries) but it's not one of the prizes I really wanted so I didn't accept it. It seems to fit someone with kids better...
