Competitions ~ What to do when you don’t get your prize!

Competitions are amazing, even more so when you’re winning. I mean entering competitions alone can be fun, don’t get me wrong. However there are down sides to competitions that no one likes to talk about, until it happens to them. Thankfully I’ve not had it happen yet and I’ve got everything I’ve won. I have had to poke a couple of companies mind you! I wanted to talk about what to do when you don’t get a competition prize though. It happens and it sucks, there are things you can do to ensure you get your prize and it depends on the person as to what route you want to take!

ManageFilter, unfollowing on Twitter made easy!

Twitter’s one of them platforms that has rules, rules in place to stop spam accounts. Which is a great thing because it’s keeping everyone online safe and out of harms way. However it can also have a negative affect of us compers, one of the main disadvantages that it gives us is the fact we can only follow a certain amount of people e.g. companies. At present Twitter only allows someone to follow up to 5,000 people, that is unless you managed to have a mass amount of people following yourself and then your limit gets increased! Although the chances of that happening are slim, sorry. If you’re a daily or professional comper you may find this comes up a little. I’ve had to sort it out a couple of times myself, which is why I now use Managefilter to save myself so much time and effort! I’m going to…

Competitions, the continuing winnings of 2018.

So obviously I haven’t won a single thing in 2018 yet, not good as its 10th January 2018! I do have exams though which is why I’ve been writing about revising for university exams!

I am looking forward to making some new YouTube videos however. You may have seen my post a few months back about how and why I enter competitions, well this year I’m going to be switching it up a little.
