I've been comping since November - in my first month I won a sofa from SCS!!! How's that for a start? Most of the bits and pieces I've won since have mainly been skill and tiebreaker competitions.
I've won some bubbles n truffles for Valentines day on Twitter for telling my worst date story, £200 in a Pinterest design competition, £60 for giving my opinion about internet dating for Take a Break Magazine.
I was also one of the finalists to win a £15000 wedding in Rhodes. I had to write about how I met my fiance and they loved my story so much they told me I had a very good chance of winning it. I hadn't, however, read the small print, which required the wedding to be filmed for Wedding TV. This wasn't really for me so I decided to bow out. Alas it wasn't mean't to be.
I love comping and enjoy the various challenges some competitions throw at you. It has also given me the confidence to realise that I could possibly use my writing skills to actually make a living.
Recently a woman's on-line Magazine called Bright Shiny News held a competition on Twitter & through them I found out they were looking for contributers. I have now had my first piece of writing published on-line and it's one of my proudest moments. Even though the work is unpaid - I can now build up a portfolio of work and hopefully get paid work in the future, which would be an absolute dream come true.
So not only have I found a fun new hobby but through it I've found a possible new career too and cheesey as it sounds I have The Prizefinder site to thank for that.
