Hi there, this is the first post i will be making on this blog to explain what I am doing and why. Basically in my struggle for money and with the lack of jobs on the market at the moment for a student like me, I came to the conclusion that there had to be other ways to make some money on the side. I then came across the idea of competitions. Now i have always seen competitions advertised on TV and online but never thought to enter any of them since lets face it there’s no chance in hell of winning any of them because so many people enter them. After some more reading about them I came across websites explaining the simple logic that although the chances of winning them are small, the more you enter the more chances you have to win something. Using this as inspiration, I have set myself the somewhat extreme target of winning £10,000 worth of prizes by this time next year. Now this may seem like a very large number and it may seem impossible to win that much but from seeing what has been won by individuals far and wide, it gives me hope that i too can win and win big. This blog will be the story of my success or lack of success depending on how things go. I will post pictures of any winnings along with a running score of the amount of winnings so far. I began this mission 3 days ago and since then i have entered a few hundred competitions. I have yet to win anything but i believe it will take a while to get going at first and hopefully soon they shall build up a little bit to help me reach my goal.
