Poll Time!

Some Very Serious Sweepers

It is always an inspiration to hear of sweepstakers winning. As I've mentioned in the past, there is a sense of "collective luck" involved, and it helps to keep the motivation going for everyone. Even for the serious sweepstaker (or "sweeper"), though wins are a normal part of everyday life, it never loses the appeal or excitement.

Some view entering sweepstakes simply as a hobby, and may even joke about it as an "obsession" or an "addiction." On the other end of the spectrum, for those who are quite seriously into it, it is simply a lifestyle choice. Yet, in either case, it can still be a business, or even a career. In any event, it's always fun to hear what other sweepers' strategies are, and what they do to make the lifestyle work.

So, today we take a look into the lives of some very serious sweepers, with this video, called "High Stakes Sweepers." It is a full-length show, so grab a cup of tea, kick back, and enjoy a dose of motivation and inspiration.

Good Luck!

Win New Shoes!

One, two, win new shoes, three, four, dance out the door...

Ah, shoes. Glorious shoes. Who doesn't love them? I once won a pair of walking shoes valued at $90. I wore them til they were no longer "nice enough" for everyday use. Years later, I still have them, and now use them for the muddy flood season here on the Mississippi River.

Since their first life, they've walked through miles of muddy river water. An afternoon in the sun on the deck, and they're nice and dry again. They might not look too great any more, yet they still feel too good to throw out, and work perfectly well in their new purpose. Shoes are a great win : )
