    The Sweeper's Credo:

    Enter and forget it.

    Always be happy for those who win - even when they win "your" prize - and be positive you will win.

    Sweeping is a hobby that is all about timing. Especially for those elusive instants! IF you enter at the exact right moment, you will win.

    If not? Sad to say you won't. But I assure you - it's nothing personal, and those who win a lot don't have any "secrets" - they are just consistent, persistent, and patient.

    I really believe that if you go into it thinking you can't win, well, you'll MAKE yourself right so often you'll start believing it!!!

    I truly do believe you have to have a positive attitude - don't get hung up on what others are doing - just focus on entering, then move on to something else - like posting so we can get to know you!!!

    So hang in there - and enter, enter, enter - and you'll be posting a win before you know it!!! And remember - every day brings new opportunities to win!!!

    Most importantly:

    Use SA correctly. You need to click the links and fill out the entry forms to enter. SweepsCheck is a great tool, but checking it off does not enter you in the sweepstakes.

    If you use an autofill program - double check your info is correct. And ALWAYS double check the entry form before you submit

    Entering too often - always check the category/rules to ensure you don't DQ yourself.

    Not entering often enough - if you sweep 1 - 3 times a week, you will have less chances.

    Confining yourself to only IW sweeps/1x entries/dailys/etc - mix it up & try to enter any and all categories.

    Entering for those you aren't eligible - like: if you make up a company name to enter, you enter a sweeps that is only for residents of Canada, etc. Always check the restrictions.

    Entering too few sweeps - I'm not suggesting you enter for prizes you don't want/can't regift, but don't restrict yourself either!

    Entering sweeps with very few prizes - even though that seems to be the trend of late, try to enter sweeps with LOTS of prizes.

    I have found that its kind of a numbers game, the more you put yourself out there the better chance you have of winning something. Companies promote sweepstakes all the time it's just a matter of finding the right ones you want to subscribe to and going to it!

    2} I avoid the winners circle. It's not that I'm not happy for other members, it's just that I don't need the constant reminder that I'm not one of them - for now. :crazytongue:

    3} I hard charge on sweeps, going through all the categories and getting a sense of satisfaction/accomplishment when I get all caught up.

    4} I take a break from the computer, since it's gone from being fun to being a chore.

    If you keep pushing yourself to enter and things don't change, you will most likely burn out and quit, whereas if you make a decision to take a break for a day or 2, you are still in control.

    I *usually* find I return after my mini "vacation" that I'm refreshed and can see things more clearly, so the little things don't get to me, and I enjoy instead of dreading entering my sweeps. :sunny:

    PLUS - recent winners threads are yet another reminder that winning can happen without you - members are reporting they quit entering to avoid burnout/because they were losing and returned and hit/were notified they won!!!

    Some newly won from IW's {they succeeded in changing their timing to a winning run} while others report being notified from past promos, or of prizes just showing up!

    So... here you think you just can't win, when all that time they just haven't drawn/notified you of a win/wins from promos you entered weeks/months ago!!!

    Here's my little secret for winning prizes. I look for blog giveaways that haven't been listed on SA or other contest sites by going to google blog search, which is down right now, so regular google then, and under tools select : time: past week. I then search for what I want to win, such as " blog giveaway trip." The huge group giveaways aren't worth my time, and clogging up my facebook and twitter so I enter giveaways with only a few options for entries. I have noticed that the ones where I have to email the blog host for an entry puts the odds most in my favor. I search those out by googling: giveaway subject line. I just won a Fandango gift card that way.
