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! At the end of the day though it’s up to the person running the competition to send out the prize, as part of the ASA guidelines otherwise they can occur a fine! So for example if you enter a…

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.

Taking a break from competitions, why it’s beneficial?!

Well the time has come to take a break from entering competitions for the time being, not because I don’t like it anymore but because I have so much to do. Entering competitions can be hard work and it takes up a lot of time throughout the month. If you don’t have this time to set aside you just aren’t going to win anything and that sucks. Well I have loads to do at the moment and I am going to Bangkok for two weeks in September so I am unable to enter any competitions! It would be pointless for me to enter 5/10 a week because I won’t win anything and I will lose time…
