My First Blog Contest

At first glance the headline may not seem to be true. I ran a contest last week and Kay won tickets to see $5 a Day from the TIFF. I feel the headline is true because this is, what I believe, to be what a real blog contest is; post a prize, ask for comments, draw a winner. I am keeping my first one very simple. Simple is good.

Who can enter? Anyone.

How does one enter? By submitting a comment to this blog post. No comment will be judged, so essays are not required. Have fun as that is what this hobby is all about! One entry per person please.

When does it end? The contest closes at 11:59pm Eastern Time on Friday September 19th.

The prize? An autographed copy of my book, You Can’t Win If You Don’t Enter. The winner will have their choice of either the American or Canadian edition.

I will choose the winner the same way I do for all my prize draws. I will use random number generating software to select an entrant.

GOOD LUCK!!

    Hello. I have been a contest enthusiest since I was 12 years old and won my first prize,a coveted ‘ LP’.That’s a recording for all you younger contesters out there. I am so very sorry to see snail mails go by the wayside ,since they are my first love.Internet is harder to win because everyone does it,so much easier to enter contests from home. My best win so far has been my shiny red new beetle.I do love to win those trips,though.I was born with a passport in my hand.I would like to know everyone elses BIG WIN!

    Hey !

    This is pretty cool ! Wish I could win this book !
    I would read it than I think I would also do a sweepstakes on my site and give this book as the prize.

    This way, I could share knowledge about sweepstakes.
    What do you think ? πŸ˜€

    Good luck to me !

  3. Thomas Farragher September 12, 2008 at 9:45 am

    Enjoyed reading your book and felt it was very well written. Have incorporated a few tips into my daily routine. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

  4. Kathy Bales September 12, 2008 at 10:23 am

    I have been a sweeper since I was a kid. I won lots of books as a teenager. I would love to win this book and lots more. Thanks.

  5. Colleen September 12, 2008 at 10:35 am

    Good Luck with your book..Would LOVE to win this..I have been on a DRY STREAK and need some “UMPH” to get back in the swing of things..All the best to you..

  6. Carolyn Moye September 12, 2008 at 10:38 am

    Would love to win your book and see what ideas I might incorporate into my entering.

  7. Paul Nidey September 12, 2008 at 10:39 am

    would like to read this book

  8. Ashley Gideon September 12, 2008 at 10:40 am

    I love sweepy. It is my one big hobby. It is addicting and as far as I am concerned it is a GOOD addiction.

  9. Littletoyman September 12, 2008 at 10:41 am

    Be the first, to leave a verse, not better, worse. For prizes to reap, You gotta enter a sweep. You can win GCs, tees, autograph of a star, car, Las Vegas trip, cruise on a ship, CDs, DVDs, More to rhyme, but no time,
    gotta go put my name in, if I wanna win.

  10. Diane McGlinchey September 12, 2008 at 10:43 am

    I would love to win this prize to give as a gift. I believe it would make a great prize at our next sweepstakes club meeting!

  11. James Whitbord September 12, 2008 at 10:45 am

    I would like to buy the book if I do not win.This is my first year of entering sweeps and boy am I hooked!I am leaving for Hawaii in two weeks on a trip I won on a one time entry from Chilis.

  12. sue harrop September 12, 2008 at 10:45 am

    i am entering because i desperatly need that book to get the motivation going again.

  13. Lorraine Woodman September 12, 2008 at 10:45 am

    Hail, Hail to the Queen!
    May I be in your court? Your Majesty
    Family and friends may giggle, but
    they aren’t winning the stuff, We are!

  14. Michael McGlinchey September 12, 2008 at 10:46 am

    My wife and I just got back from the Sweepstakes convention in San Antonio Texas. We had a great time! What a beautiful city! PS – My biggest win has been a 42 inch HDTV. Gotta love that!

  15. William Rentz September 12, 2008 at 10:52 am

    Sweeping on-line for almost 1 year now and I am addicted! Haven’t won any big prizes….yet. Have won a few hundred dollars worth of merchandise(food, hats, gift cards).

  16. Dick Bradick September 12, 2008 at 10:58 am

    Sweepstakes are good for your mine.Its make you alert
    and keeps your mine working, when you get older.

  17. Lisa Washington September 12, 2008 at 11:01 am

    I would love this so much.

  18. Darrell Seever September 12, 2008 at 11:01 am

    Sweepstakes are great fun! I have not read the book but sounds like a great read. Darrell

  19. Lois Porter September 12, 2008 at 11:18 am

    I love to sweepstake however I find it a little difficult because I move every six months as I am a snowbird but I try to read the rules estimate where I will be for the drawings. What I don’t know will not hurt me, so I keep trying.

  20. Eric Halloran, Sr. September 12, 2008 at 11:19 am

    I want to win.

  21. Patty Boutin September 12, 2008 at 11:24 am

    Thanks for having this contest. I really appreciate it.

  22. Mark September 12, 2008 at 11:25 am

    People ask me how I win so many sweepstakes. I tell them that I enter so many sweepstakes. Ha Ha! If they tell me, “I never win anything.”, I ask them how many have they entered? Usually, it’s, “Oh, I entered a sweeps back in 1982, I think.” Well, duh, you can’t win if you don’t enter. The title of the book says it all.

  23. Patty Wallace September 12, 2008 at 11:27 am

    I also just finished reading your book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Winning one would be great as I can gift it another sweeper.

    I love all the tips you had in the book.

    This is very nice of you! Thanks for the chance!

  24. Donna Wallman September 12, 2008 at 11:40 am

    Entering sweepstakes is fun and becoming an addiction.
    HELP!!

  25. Jerry Huber September 12, 2008 at 11:42 am

    Entering is the easy part. You still have to have your name pulled out of the hat. To win a prize is a numbers game. to win a big prize is LUCK.

  26. Carol Harrity September 12, 2008 at 11:42 am

    I have been sweeping for several years-it’s become an addiction for me. Anyway, congrats on your first give away. Sounds like just what I need.

  27. Frances September 12, 2008 at 11:47 am

    Sweeping is a fun hobby. What a rush when you eventually win no matter how small the prize.

  28. Bruce Cannady September 12, 2008 at 12:00 pm

    Harder to win anywhere with more amd more sweepers appearing

  29. Mary Bird September 12, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    WOW ! I think it is so cool that not only is sweeping a great hobby, but you have taken it to a new level by writing a book to help others. Thanks.

  30. Nicole Morgan September 12, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    I’d love to read your book and share it with my husband. When the kids go to sleep, I hit the computer. He doesn’t complain about it (much)and I tell him he’ll be grateful one day when we go on a free family vacation or his new pick-up is sitting in the driveway. Positive energy!

  31. Carol September 12, 2008 at 12:38 pm

    I love to enter contest so that I can win things for my family. I enjoy checking the mail to see what surprises the were delivered inside.

  32. Carol McLaughlin September 12, 2008 at 12:42 pm

    What can I say about sweeping? It has now become my life’s work!! I throughly enjoyed helping Carolyn Americanize and talk her into producing it after reading the Canadian version. I, too, will share the wealth of knowlege of the book with other sweepers in seminars and raffling them off!!
    Kudos to Carolyn for her devotion to our hobby and always looking forward to hooking up with her and Craig!!

  33. Barb Carlucci September 12, 2008 at 12:42 pm

    This is the most profitable hobby I have. I have more fun — especially winning stuff and then sharing my wealth with others. It’s win/ win…. and I can’t get enough of it. I love to read others good fortunes too.

  34. Stacey Shehorn September 12, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    This is a practical prize. I would love to win this and read all the info I can get.

  35. Jerry Seymour September 12, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    Good luck on your book and blog!

  36. sharon September 12, 2008 at 1:03 pm

    isn’t life fun

  37. Juanita Vonk September 12, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    I enjoy entering sweepstakes as a hobby as it is fun to dream of “what if?” It’s fun to imagine driving the beautiful car, living in the georgous house, visiting an exotic location, etc. I’ll keep entering and picturing myself winning and maybe someday soon, my “big win” will come along. In the meantime, winning small prizes keeps me encouraged.

  38. John Vonk September 12, 2008 at 1:11 pm

    My wife enters sweepsakes for me as I don’t type well. If I win the book, she’ll be really excited about reading it as she really enjoys entering sweeps (for both of us).

  39. Jeannie47 September 12, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    I’d like to say “Congrats” on your book. If I don’t win it, is it available on the market? After retirement, sweeping has become a perfect hobby. Oh and when those prizes start showing up, it makes it all worthwhile. Still waiting to be notified of my car/truck/cash win (smiles). Looking forward to reading your book.

  40. Teresa Young September 12, 2008 at 1:15 pm

    What a great prize, Carolyn. As sweepers we all know there are going to be dry times – reading your book is just what one should do to get back in the WINNING frame of mind!

  41. vet tech September 12, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    I would love a copy of your book, and have been looking forward to reading it ever since I read Sandra Grauschopf’s review. I love sweeping, it gives me hope every day that something unexpected and wonderful may happen… in a lot of ways that is better than the prizes. Not that I mind the prizes…

  42. Lindi Go September 12, 2008 at 1:25 pm

    This is a great prize. Thanks!

  43. Debbie September 12, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    I would love to win this book! I love to enter sweepstakes and I know I could learn a lot from it!

  44. Isabella Valenti September 12, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    Hello – my first win was an 80 gig ipod – since then there have been smaller wins. I would love to read your book.

    thank you!

    isabella

  45. Eric Miller September 12, 2008 at 1:48 pm

    Thank you for this great sweepstakes! Good luck to all but better luck to me! πŸ™‚

  46. mike wikander September 12, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    Hi…good luck everyone.

  47. Susana Larrea September 12, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    Well, I’m brand new in this, but I have always been the lucky one in the family, since I was little always wining little raffles, or last years tickets to a concert which I only entered once! So here I am willing to learn more from the experts, and having a lot of fun!

  48. Lori Darowski September 12, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    I hope I win this – I need it!

  49. Anne Hiler September 12, 2008 at 2:08 pm

    Sounds like something we need!

  50. jffryclough September 12, 2008 at 2:14 pm

    luck is fickle but i’m glad it exists

  51. Virginia Cauthen September 12, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    This part is new to me. I love entering contests and have won a few. I would love to get tips from the pro on winning.I would really love to win some money because I cannot work and my husbands place of work went out of business in August and money is tight.
    I wish everyone good luck! I would love to read your book. Have a great day and May God Bless!

  52. Tony Spataro September 12, 2008 at 2:35 pm

    I started to enter contests and sweepstakes 3 months ago. I can’t be as active I was so I have taken up the sweepsatkes hobby. I haven’t won much so far (movie tickets, toothpaste, & a health bar) but I keep trying. I’m sure that your book would be a great help to me or any other person who enters sweepstakes.

  53. Linda Maslyn September 12, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    I would love to read another person’s perspective. I’m in a slump right now as well. Thanks for the contest!

  54. Judi September 12, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    I’ve always loved entering things! People have made fun of me because I am always confident I will win. I gave up on scratch-off tickets because it cost too much. Now I am just starting to build a house and appliances are NOT included in the budget! Okay, I’ll just see if I can win me some. I had found around 10 different sweeps I was entering daily and then my son said there must be a website. Well, lo and behold, I found Mr. Sweepy! I haven’t won any appliances yet, or much of anything else, but I’m sure I will. And then I want to take my granddaughter on a nice trip and I could certainly use a new car, money is always wonderful . . . .

  55. Paula Weir September 12, 2008 at 2:50 pm

    I can’t wait to read your book. Heard it’s a great book.

  56. Mary Ann Linder September 12, 2008 at 2:56 pm

    What a wonderful hobby this is! Surprise after surprise.

  57. Joi Powell September 12, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    Crossing my fingers and toes!

  58. Chandra Krueger September 12, 2008 at 3:12 pm

    I’ve only been sweeping for a few months and would like some tips to keep me going in the long haul!

  59. MB Summerfield September 12, 2008 at 3:21 pm

    I have just started contesting this summer, so I have not had an opportunity to win anything yet. I am trying to contest for 15 minutes a day. I am interested in reading your book sometime.
    Summer

  60. Francine Anchondo September 12, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    I have been sweeping off and on for 3 years and I really enjoy it sometimes I take breaks but if feels nice to get back into it. Thanks for the contest.

  61. wufferhund September 12, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    Sounds like a great book!

  62. Gem September 12, 2008 at 3:46 pm

    I love to enter and enter and enter. Recently found Sandra G’s contest page on About.com and visit the site daily. Such fun!!

  63. Christine C. Grice September 12, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    I would love to win your book because due to the lack of winning, my motivation has slipped away.

  64. Nancy K. Applegte September 12, 2008 at 3:56 pm

    I don’t usually enter anything that requires me to add to a blog, but I’m making an exception. I’d love the book.

  65. Shirley E September 12, 2008 at 3:58 pm

    I could really, really use your book. Hit a dry spell…good luck everyone!

  66. Wendy September 12, 2008 at 4:17 pm

    Well seeing as I nearly always leave you comments I would have been entering anyway right, love from one of your REGULAR commentators lol.

  67. Lola Greer September 12, 2008 at 4:22 pm

    I would love to win this book so that I can improve my skills at sweeping.

  68. beth voigt-pickard September 12, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    i would really like this book and am really glad to find your site

  69. AJ September 12, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    Cool contest! Sounds like something I would love to read!

  70. Kathryn Church September 12, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Always listen to blog radio…………

  71. Becky September 12, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    I could really use this book because I just started sweeping about 6 months ago and I must be doing something wrong because I have only won a candy bar !! I need guidance!!

  72. Patti Sherman September 12, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    I have been a sweeper for 40 years and love each and every minute of it! I have won many, many prizes and always look forward to the next. I especially love it when my grandchildren get a surprise win! Would love to win your book.

  73. Angie September 12, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    Good Luck everyone …

  74. Jeff Mayo September 12, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    I have been entering sweeps since 2000 and have had such a good time with it-every win is as exciting as the first!

    Thank you for the chance to win your book-good luck everyone! Jeff

  75. Dot Uhlman September 12, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    I’ve been a sweeper for years now it seems…won washing machine, dryer, 42″ HDTV,
    won trip to Germany, many to Disney etc.
    Love your little cell phone charms we bought at the convention a couple of yrs ago, Carolyn…
    This would be a nice win for me to have your book!

  76. Gwen Newell September 12, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    I have been sweeping for close to 30 yrs. and love Mr. Sweepy’s site!!! I would love to win your book! When we did snailmail – I won an 18 day trip to the Orient(1982). I haven’t won anything very big since, But I keep hoping and entering. If nothing else, it keeps my fingers nimble and my mind more alert.
    Thank you for this opportunity!!!

  77. Denise Lima September 12, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    I have been entering contests for about a year and a half now and its so exciting. I have one a few and its great, i would really love to win a copy of your book and read some of your techniques to winning. Denise

  78. immax4bog September 12, 2008 at 5:04 pm

    If I win this book, it will probably be the best thing I would ever win. I need all the help I can get. I’ve been entering sweeps online for about 4 or 5 years now. I won a couple music downloads, but I don’t download music. I won some clipart that I found out fast why they had to GIVE it away. I won a $10 Lowe’s card that they never sent me. I won a book for my cats. 20 bags of chips from a restaurant we never go to. I recently won a $25 gift card and $100 cash, but I haven’t seen them yet. I hope I get them. It can get VERY discouraging at times, to put forth so much time and effort for so little return, but I just keep trying. I enter dozens of sweeps every day and keep hoping that I’ll win that one special big one. Congrats to everyone’s wins.

  79. Greg September 12, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Thank you for the opportunity. Good Luck all!

  80. Bonnie Day September 12, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    I would love to win this book I have been entering sweepstakes on line, by mail, texting and phone in for about 10 years It used to be very good. I was able to win enough for all my kids and grand kids xmas and birthday presents but it seems to have dried up and I don’t know why It seems to be a long time between wins and no more biggies anymore Maybe this book would help

    Thanks for a great giveaway

  81. Bonnie Brooks September 12, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    I love sweeping. I’ve been doing it regularly for 5 years and had done it on and off for a few years before that. I’ve won a lot of small things and a few big things and enjoy it so much. Love your web site and your books.

  82. Deb H September 12, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    So this is what a blog sweepstakes is! I have been doing snail mails for years but this is my first blog entry. I sure miss the snail mails but I guess it’s time to jump into the future of sweepstaking and give it a try. Loved seeing you at the Texas convention and I look forward to seeing you at the Hershey mini convention.

  83. ellen cunningham September 12, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    I love entering sweeps so this book sounds like a fun read. Count me in. Thanks

  84. hoop dee doo September 12, 2008 at 5:41 pm

    I’ve been sweeping seriously for just under 2 years and have been fortunate enough to a number of small prizes and a handful of grand prizes. I don’t know too many folks personally that do this for a hobby, so I would love to win your book to get another’s perspective on creating a winning strategy.

  85. Jason Dockins September 12, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    Would love to read this book

  86. Marla T September 12, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    I love sweeping. It relieves a lot of stress from day to day. Would love to win this book. I sure could use some new tips.

  87. Wanda September 12, 2008 at 6:13 pm

    I love to sweep. Have been doing it since I was a young adult by snail mail. Now with the internet, I enter at least 50 a day and have won lots of little prizes. A great hobby. Would love to have your book.

  88. dennis george September 12, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    I want to win.

  89. Lynda Perry September 12, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    I loved listening to you on the radio when you were talking to Mr. Creepy, I mean Sweepy ha ha. I probably wont win your book because of that comment but I DID enjoy listening to what YOU had to say about sweeps. I learned quite a bit from you and would love to know more.

  90. VickieA September 12, 2008 at 6:46 pm

    I bought a copy of this book, but need another because mine is loaned out constantly!

  91. patrick moran September 12, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    i can’t wait to get the book

  92. Richard Jiacik September 12, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    I’d like to win your sweeps and get to read your book. I don’t see how one could get better in entering sweeps tho. everyone does the same thing. I’d still would like to know if being old limits one’s chances? Thanks.

  93. June Stahl September 12, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    I am a very new sweeper and have won only a few small prizes. I would love the book to give me some insight to statagies to use to win the “BIG ONE”!

  94. Carol September 12, 2008 at 7:18 pm

    I love sweeping. My biggest win was from Cheer Tru Fit Detergent two years ago. I won A trip to NYC worth $10,000. After some negotiating with the sweep administer and Proctor and Gamble they kindly agreed to allow me to have the %$10,000 cash instead. I wasn’t playing for a prize I didn’t want, I was playing an instant win game for a $100 visa card and was automatically entered to win the trip.

  95. Robert Dahlen September 12, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    excellent book

  96. Saundra Bowers September 12, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    This would be a terrific prize to win!! Very interested in seeing what you have in the American addition. I have been sweepstaking for a couple years now and have won some nice prizes. Nothing big yet, but still hoping the day comes comes for that. I enjoy entering in my spare time, can turn into quite an addiction!
    Good luck everyone!!

  97. Robert O. September 12, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    Sweeping can be addictive but its much safer than other addictions.

  98. Zipporah Sandler September 12, 2008 at 8:17 pm

    Thank you for offering “You Can’t Win if you Don’t Enter” for your sweepstakes. I’ve been sweeping for as long as I can remember (and that’s a LONG time) and I still get that same feeling as I did the first time I won something with each and every win the I get.

  99. Lynn September 12, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    I have been winning since I was 8 years old…mostly in radio sweeps. I’m entering less because I don’t know how to win without drop boxes and radio call-ins. I need your book so I can begin winning again!

  100. sandra bellomy September 12, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    I have been sweeping since March and love it. I got my daughter started and we just got back from a trip to NY that she won. I would love to win this book because anything to do with sweeping fascinates me.

  101. Jolene September 12, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    I am swiftly becoming addicted to sweeping!

  102. Jen September 12, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    Me, me, me!

  103. Allyn September 12, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    This is a great blog. I’m glad I was referred to it. Keep up the nice work. Thank you!

  104. Sue Robinson September 12, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Hi Carolyn,
    I’ve been sweeping about 17 years and have some great wins under my belt, but always willing to ‘tweak’ my entering methods, and love to hear how others enter.

    I met you at the Scottsdale convention and have one of your four leaf clover pendants…it sits in front of me on my desk as I enter. It’s a pretty little piece of jewelry and I feel ‘every little bit helps’. Thanks so much for offering this contest!

  105. Syretta Patterson September 12, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    LOVE…Sweeping,it gives me something productive to do. The WINS just keep coming…

  106. Sue September 12, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    I have been entering contests since I was laid off of my job a year ago. I have them categorized on my favorites list for easier entering. So far I have won 2 drink cups and samples of toothpaste. Sure would like to win something bigger, maybe you book could help!

  107. justin curry September 12, 2008 at 10:33 pm

    I dont read much but i’d make an exception in this case.

  108. nsmohr September 12, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    I’ve enjoyed entering sweepstakes online, but have only won three little tiny prizes – free loaf of bread, free jelly beans and a box of new cleaning products . Actually that was a pretty good prize. It would be nice to win some of the big prizes, but I enjoy just seeing most of the prizes. It’s soert of like window shopping.

  109. katie g September 12, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  110. Karin September 12, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    This sounds like a really great book; I’d love to read it. I have been entering sweepstakes for about 3.5 years now, and have won over $17,000 in prizes. I love the sense of possibility entering sweepstakes gives me.

  111. Karen September 12, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    Last year I won 250,000 boxtops which is worth $25,000. It was a Boxtops for Kids contest and was sponsored by Walgeens, General Mills and Kimberly Clark. My daughter won a trip to Alaska in 2004 and took her dad and me. It was wonderful.
    Just about every week I receive something in the mail from contests I have won. Anyone can do this. It just takes some time. Good Luck to everyone. Happy sweeping!!

  112. Ellen LaPaglia September 12, 2008 at 11:09 pm

    Congrats on your FIRST Blog Contest! I too am new at this “blog” contest thing so here we go together……….

  113. Brenda Lee September 12, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    Would love to win this book!

  114. Cathy Grills September 12, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    Hi Carolyn,
    COOL idea for a contest!!!
    Have been contesting since the early 80’s, so am an oldie, but a goodie… ;O)))
    Have seen a lot of changes in the contesting world over the years, especially the decline in snail mail contests.
    Think this would be an interesting in-depth idea for a show, if you could find an expert on this subject ???
    Hope to win the prize, my contesting buddy could use a nice surprise for Xmas….:O)

  115. Karen Weichel September 12, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    Enjoy sweeping with my Mother; I really enjoy her wins. Would love to share this book with her.

  116. Vickie Gallo September 12, 2008 at 11:24 pm

  123. tiff September 13, 2008 at 12:32 am

    I love sweeping, have been in this since May. Intend to do it the rest of my life, as it’s the most fun I’ve had in my whole adult life.

  127. Jennifer September 13, 2008 at 1:08 am

    You can’t win if you don’t blog! Great forum and websites. I recently won a Chanel Mascara – in this economy even such simple prizes mean a lot!

  128. Lisa Corwin September 13, 2008 at 1:21 am

    Book looks to be informative. I’d sure like to find out.

  129. eureka September 13, 2008 at 1:32 am

    I’m still waiting for a grand prize. I won a c.d. burner 2 years ago.

  130. Sonny Klamerus September 13, 2008 at 1:33 am

    Congratulations on the book, first of all, Carolyn, and much success with this blog. You’re an inspiration for contesters and sweepers all over North America.

    To all, listen to Carolyn. She knows her stuff.

    Sonny

  131. Lisa L. September 13, 2008 at 1:52 am

    I am a sweepaholic which is better than being a sleepaholic.

  132. Suzanne September 13, 2008 at 2:22 am

    While the others are playing their games, my game makes me $$ and gives me the extras that I might never have. I am addicted to sweeping! I’m so glad to find others like me and to share tips!

  133. Ann Gaddie September 13, 2008 at 2:29 am

    If I were to win this book it would be my first win but I’m sure after reading it, it would only be the beginning of a lifetime of wins, Thanks in advance!
    Ann

  134. Pete Davies September 13, 2008 at 2:44 am

    What’s a book? Is it one of those bound paper things? All I read these days are PDFs

  135. bob french September 13, 2008 at 3:57 am

    thank you for writing this book.

  136. Suzette September 13, 2008 at 4:50 am

    I have only been entering sweepstakes online for a year and I am having such fun! I have had some nice wins and know your book would be a great read!

  137. Tom Morrow September 13, 2008 at 5:21 am

    I recently got laid off and while looking for a job I noticed some contests and entered. I haven’t found a job yet but I won 4 tickets and a giant tiger 5 dollar certificate.

  138. Scott Kirschner September 13, 2008 at 5:56 am

    Hi Carolyn
    I am fairly new to sweeps. I enter as a hobby and I try to always have fun.

  139. Brian Jorge September 13, 2008 at 6:17 am

    would love to win

  140. Diane September 13, 2008 at 6:38 am

    Would love to read this book!

  143. Linda MItchell September 13, 2008 at 7:27 am

    I think I need this book, I love contesting but I have no luck at it at all. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I’m sure you can tell me just from what I have read. Hopefully if I win it will be the beginning of something beautiful. tx

  144. Vicki Russell September 13, 2008 at 7:42 am

    Been contesting for over a year now. The best prize I won was a 1000.00 camera outfit. I really need this book I want to win a trip.

  145. Diane Kroese September 13, 2008 at 7:44 am

  147. Catherine Scharf September 13, 2008 at 7:53 am

    I started entering contests in late 1996 and am hooked! My first big win was a 1997 Ford Explorer. Since then I,ve won trips, money, electronics…………. you name it. I am also sorry to see snail mail contests go, chances were better (who would write a 500 word essay if they didnt have to?lol)
    Would love to read this book!
    Cathy

  148. Susan Crammond September 13, 2008 at 8:22 am

    My friend Diana is standing on the edges of contesting. She has seen my big win (a MacBook Pro!) and wants to start winning too. A copy of your book would be just the thing for her—I already have one!

  149. Marsha Kamish September 13, 2008 at 8:23 am

    Hope I win ’cause I’d love to read the book.

  151. sharon travis September 13, 2008 at 8:35 am

    I have been a contestor since I retired 5 years ago. I was really hoping to win a trip and I DID!!!! We were lucky enough to go on a beautiful European river cruise along the Rhine from Amsterdam to Basel. It was the trip of a lifetime and a great way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Good contesting everyone!

  152. Louann Bell September 13, 2008 at 8:42 am

  161. Violet Smith September 13, 2008 at 9:22 am

    I think your way of thinking truely works. I was so wanting to win the Nature Valley Backyard Makeover and entered everyday and told myself I am gonna win. Well low and behold I did win it and now my backyard looks beautiful. Keep up the good work

  162. alan shawn September 13, 2008 at 9:25 am

  163. Sandra September 13, 2008 at 9:35 am

    I would enjoy reading your book. Kudos to you and the best of Luck. I haven’t done sweeping before. Thank you for giving me this chance. I have the chance just like all others who may enter. Again thank you!

  164. Penny R. September 13, 2008 at 9:44 am

    After reading your book last summer, I started to win big.
    Your book inspired my now obsession with contesting and winning. Thank you for writing such a great book.

  165. THELMA BEAM September 13, 2008 at 9:47 am

    I’m a big fam. Congrats on your first blog giveaway.

  167. Kelly Curry September 13, 2008 at 9:56 am

    I love doing sweeps and I’d like to read this book.

  168. AJJ September 13, 2008 at 9:57 am

    I’m a little OCD so contesting works for me — would love to read this title. Good luck everyone.

  169. Jason Nabors September 13, 2008 at 10:02 am

    Well, I’m the king of NOT winning instants, so this book could help me.

  170. deb September 13, 2008 at 10:09 am

    I just keep entering with the hopes that some day I’ll win something big and I’ll have the last laugh on neighbors and friends who think I’m crazy to do this for a hobby! Maybe Carolyn’s book will help …

  171. Lew Archer September 13, 2008 at 10:13 am

    Started contesting about a month ago. Addictive!

  172. Iris September 13, 2008 at 10:18 am

    I would love to read this book. Contesting makes getting the mail a fun and exciting trip! You never know what awaits you.

  173. Cari Brawner September 13, 2008 at 10:20 am

    I have heard a lot about your book. I can’t wait to read it!

  174. lovemy3youngens September 13, 2008 at 10:27 am

    I’m just getting into the sweeps hobby, so I would love to read the book and learn!

  175. Tammy Riedl September 13, 2008 at 11:18 am

    Sweeps is my thing and winning is my game. I would love to win your book so I could take a look. YOU ROCK.

    Enjoyed meeting you at the convention! Would love to win a copy of your book.

  177. Steve from Long Island September 13, 2008 at 11:43 am

    Heard it’s a good book, would love to read it.

  178. Anna Warren September 13, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    I’m new at this but it’s very exciting. I haven’t one anything yet but can’t wait for my first. Would love to gain insight from your book

  179. Leslie September 13, 2008 at 12:36 pm

    My kids all laughed at me when I started entering contests a year ago. Must admit I was getting frustrated with it all at first,couldn’t win a thing. Six months into it I won a trip to the Grey Cup in Toronto and a 2500.00 gift card from Future Shop. They are not laughing anymore. Now they ask daily win anything today mom. Would love this book Hope I win.

  180. Janet September 13, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    This book sounds like a winner.

  181. charles bellomy September 13, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    this sounds like an interesting book. would like to win it.

  182. Laura Ahearn September 13, 2008 at 12:54 pm

    I have been sweeping for less than a year and I must say it has changed my life forever. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your sweepstakes and a chance to win your book.

  183. Carl Yerington September 13, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    Biggest win, 3 week trip riding the Alps on a BMW cycle! Another good one, a makeover for my wife, she received a makeover out east, and got new clothes plus a $2500 gift card from Bon Ton Corporation (Younkers/Elder Beerman) I wind a lot, takes a bit of time, but I am ready for that next big one… the book on how to contest!

  184. Becky September 13, 2008 at 1:12 pm

    I love sweeping! Congrats on writing your book, it’s nice to see someone capitalizing on their hobby!

  185. Athena September 13, 2008 at 1:21 pm

    I would love to win this. I’m relatively new to contesting, but I think I’ve got the fever!

  186. lisa September 13, 2008 at 1:30 pm

    I have been sweeping for 1 year now. My biggest win was a set of body washes and lotions. I hoping to win a new car or a vacation, since i unfortunaltely cannot afford to buy either one. I use Mr. sweepy site and love the commraderie that is among the sweepers.
    good luck to all you sweepers!!

  187. Jan September 13, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    My first win, way back in high school, was a stale cake, things have improved a great deal since then!

  188. Sharon September 13, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    Would enjoy reading your Canadian Sweepstakes book. Have entered contests since I was a teen and have won many wonderful prizes along the way. It is a great hobby, now the internet is a fast and inexpensive alternate to mailing entries, think it is even better to be a contester using this new happy medium to enter.

  189. Linda F September 13, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    I would love to read your book.

  190. Lori Belanger September 13, 2008 at 1:50 pm

    Hi Carolyn,

    I already have a copy of your book but would LOVE to get my hands on another as I have been sharing the idea of contesting with others & would like to give it away to receive some good karma in return! Thanks for offering this contest & happy winning!

  191. Taryn Parker September 13, 2008 at 1:54 pm

    There was a cool documentary this year on DocZone on CBC about contesting, it was interesting to see all the different people that enter contests. I would definitely like to win this book.

  192. Maureen September 13, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    I love to contest and nice to see so many others that enjoy it too!

  193. AnnMarie Poullette September 13, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    Would love to get this book to read and learn from the master

  194. tracey September 13, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    my husband and i entered a couple of contests earlier this year and ended up winning a ‘family trip of a lifetime’ to ottawa for canada day…what a wonderful experience…needless to say we have been entering contests since… i have to say though, people look at me strangely when i tell them we enter contests and my response to them is the same as the title of your book “you can’t win if you don’t enter”

  195. Janet Baron September 13, 2008 at 2:32 pm

    Contesting has been the Greatest Theraphy going. I plug in my music & go searching.
    The greatest HIGH is a win no matter how big or small.
    My best win was a Toby Keith contest I won for my Birthday last year. Talk about a high meeting & greeting that boy.I put away my winnings for xmas gifts so I have to keep tight liped.
    I loved reading you’re book. A signed copy would be a blast.Thanks again

  196. Mary Kelly September 13, 2008 at 2:36 pm

    My grandmother was a refunder and a sweeper. She won many cool prizes back in the day. I only began sweeping about 6 months ago, but I find that it makes me feel connected somehow to my Nana. She’s gone 25 years now but I feel her with me when I sweep.

  197. Ann Demill September 13, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    My first prize was a hot air ballon ride – what fun. Since then I’ve been hooked and would love to win the book to get some new ideas.

  198. Hollie September 13, 2008 at 2:50 pm

    Awesome. I started entering sweepstakes just last year and won about 1000 dollars worth of stuff. Its been a lot of little things but none the less I have enjoyed them. I’m waiting for the day I hit it big, but until then the nice small prizes keep my happy hehe and enjoying my hobby. Cool blog btw.

  199. Diana Wright September 13, 2008 at 2:52 pm

    I look forward to reading your book!

  200. Arsmom September 13, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    I’m new to this but I love entering contests – Going to bed every night hopeful that tomorrow will bring me something nice! I’d love to read your book.

  201. Michelle September 13, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    For about a year I have been entering contests. This seems like a very informative book!

  202. Ken B. September 13, 2008 at 3:24 pm

    Everyday, I try to do something to enter more efficiently. I have several programs I use as “tools of the hobby” that make problem sweeps easier to enter. I’m always looking for more information and it’s fun to see how everyone goes about the task of entering sweeps daily, differently. I’m sure your book will be a great read.
    Leaving for Orlando in a couple weeks for my second trip of the year. Nice, but sure wish I could win a cash or vehicle sweep.
    I enjoyed listening to your interview with Mr Sweepy (the sweepster rocks!) and receiving your email updates.

  203. Rhonda Steele September 13, 2008 at 3:51 pm

    Thank you for yet another contest for me to enter in the great big web world

  204. Siamesemom September 13, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    Hi! This is a great book! Good luck to everyone!

  205. Lisa D. September 13, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    I would love to read this book because I could use the encouragement! I’ve been entering contests for maybe two years now – won a few nice things – but not that much. I’m trying to “hang in there”!

  206. Rose September 13, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    Love your newsletter. Count me in!!!

  207. Aliya September 13, 2008 at 4:19 pm

    Hi! I’m a newbie sweeper and thus far have won only a few small items, but it’s quite thrilling. I’d love to win your book and learn more about the tips and tricks. Thanks!

  208. Maria September 13, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    I have been entering sweepstakes for 15 years. Just recently I won my 1st trip from a local contest. If you are in a dry spell, hang in there, your day will come. I would love to win this book. GLTA

  209. Lil September 13, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    You have already helped me but I would still like to read your book.

  210. Eleanor Freeman September 13, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    I’ve only been doing sweeps for a few months and I am totally addicted. However, I think I need some help so your book would be great – I love to read too.

  211. Cynthia Walker September 13, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    I think we contesters are like a family of our own. Until you sign on and start winning you cant explain how cool it feels to win.

  212. cc September 13, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    I’m new to this hobby, but love it. It has also helped me with my computer skills.

  213. KEETER1967 September 13, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    HERE DUE TO SWEEPSTAKES TODAY. LOVE THAT SITE.

  214. KB September 13, 2008 at 6:05 pm

    Not only do I love sweeping for the prizes and fun – but for the amazing friends I’ve met through the hobby! Like you of course!!

  215. Margaret Imecs September 13, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    I really want to win this book, because I want to be a better contestant and your book would be the answer.

  216. Kathi Yeagley September 13, 2008 at 6:21 pm

    Thanks for the resource-just knowing it is available to win or buy is a WIN! We are all blessed and need to remember that, whether we win BIg prizes, little junk or nothin cause we found each other. God Bless You All. Happy Sweeping : )

  217. Ruth September 13, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    Would love to learn more. Have been doing this for about 9 months I should win the big one soon RIGHT? 9 months and you have a baby LOL.

  218. Nicole September 13, 2008 at 6:40 pm

    I’ve been entering contest for awhile but would love to read this book for any tips that would help me win!

  219. Rita a September 13, 2008 at 6:41 pm

    I have been a sweeper for over 6 years now off and on. This is a rewarding and often frustrating hobby. I love it.

  220. Jenn S. September 13, 2008 at 6:43 pm

    I started sweeping in college and haven’t stopped since. I would love to own a copy of this book.

  221. Sonya Sparks September 13, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    Thanks for the chance. I would love to win this.

  222. Nora September 13, 2008 at 6:49 pm

    I could and can use encouragement with entering sweeps. You know I would love to read your tips, pointers and storey.

  223. Sandy September 13, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    would love to read it

  224. Christina September 13, 2008 at 6:55 pm

    I truly believe in the concept behind You Can’t Win If You Don’t Enter. I myself enter numerous contests and, when asked to blog, often surprise myself at my own ability to assess items and comment on their intrinsic worth!

  225. Pat B September 13, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    I love sweeping, I love books, I would love to win this!

  226. Gaye McGill September 13, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    I know for sure you’re on the right path with the title of your book. What I need is some good advice beyond just entering. Thanks for the giveaway.

  227. Barry Kopulos September 13, 2008 at 7:02 pm

    Carolyn I saw you in the special last Sun on CBC (Doc Zone) episode Winning for Living. Fascinating show and learned so much about contesting.

  228. susan varney September 13, 2008 at 7:03 pm

    I would love to win this book. I’m into sweepstaking or I should say I’m addicted to sweepstaking. I enjoy listening to your talks, so I know the book must be great!

  231. Anne September 13, 2008 at 7:18 pm

  233. Laura Paskevicius September 13, 2008 at 7:24 pm

  240. Mrs. MM September 13, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    I have recently started sweeping…my mother subscribed to the old-school newsletters and mail-ins back in the 80s. It would be very nice to have this book and then to let my husband read it so that he can understand the process and why I haven’t won a million dollars in 3 months!!! LOL – he just doesn’t understand the odds.

  241. Sarah Albers September 13, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    A tough game for Quebecers … very often, we want to enter, but we can’t (Excluding Quebec) … I will have to write a book called “Please, let us enter ! otherwise, we can’t win !”

  288. Leigh Nichols September 14, 2008 at 7:00 am

    I’ve been sweeping for many years, and am highly interested to read another sweeper’s point of view, and possibly learn what I could do differently and what I am doing wrong.

  289. Carrie September 14, 2008 at 7:10 am

    Thanks for the contest. Sweeping is the best hobby there is. I’ll have to pick up a copy of the book even if I don’t win it.

  291. Donna Salvie September 14, 2008 at 7:22 am

    As a single mom I cannot usually afford alot of “extras” so it is fun when I win them !

  294. Tracey Byram September 14, 2008 at 7:45 am

    You can’t win if you don’t enter is my motto. So I should probably read the book of the same name.

  295. Judith Rachmani September 14, 2008 at 8:03 am

    Can anyone recommend a great website for international contests?

  296. Jackie Stott September 14, 2008 at 8:29 am

    When I’m selected as the first winner of your blog contest, my plan is to give my prize to another sweeper and make them aware of your great book and site.

  300. Mike Weisberg September 14, 2008 at 10:33 am

  302. Jennifer Barnett September 14, 2008 at 11:00 am

    Just like the title says, you can’t win if you don’t enter. The key to winning is entering and entering often.

  303. Belva Bare September 14, 2008 at 11:06 am

    I was wondering if your book comes in audio also

  304. Donna DeClemente September 14, 2008 at 11:13 am

    Looks like you’ve got a successful blog promotion going on here. Proves that promos do work. You’ll have to tell me the final results. – Donna

  305. Dara Nix September 14, 2008 at 11:26 am

    I have been sweeping for YEARS now and LOVE it! It has become even more important to me now as I am unemployed and am using my winnings to help supplement my very limited income until I find another job!

  306. toasters September 14, 2008 at 11:26 am

    I’d like this, our long days are coming where being outdoors is not as appealing as staying indoors with a good book.

  310. Nick Abate September 14, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    Well this would be a great read to increase my odds in winning even more this year…. Lucky 302!!!!!!!!!!11

    I have always wanted to know the tax implications of prize winning.

  322. Amy September 14, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    I love sweeping & this will continue to be a lifetime hobby for me!

  323. Monica W. September 14, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    As I bow to the Contest Queen— I dream of the big win. A car, vacation, appliance — but i definitely enjoy the thrill of the small wins like promo items, music downloads, or gift cards. This book might be just what I need to go from a wannabe to a princess— and someday a QUEEEEEEEN! (lol) Thanks for your experiences!

  324. Vicki Kondovski September 14, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    Hi, I’ve been entering contests for about 5 yrs, my big win for me came in Nov 2007 when I won a front loading washer & dryer combo from Maytag. I’ve just had another big win last month, I won a new 6pc patio set with a 4 burner BBQ and a 7ft propane heater from Sobeys. Last week I won a new ipod shuffle, my daughters been asking for one for her b-day in Oct, so thats her present taken care of. I spent about an hour entering everyday and about an hour looking for new contests too. Thats what I do to relax and I enjoy every minute of it, I love hearing of others winning… Keep contesting everyone, and win, win, win !!! I would be soo happy if I won your new book.

  339. Heather September 14, 2008 at 6:00 pm

  340. Mia Marcakis September 14, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    I just saw a documentary on CBC’s The Lens. I was seriously fascinated with the fact that peopledo this as a hobby and I have gotten so into it! I was going to go out and buy your book, but seeing that I could win a signed copy was much more fun! But if I don’t win the book, I will definitely go out and buy it. And it is true, You can’t win if you don’t enter!! Thanks so much!!

  341. Joseph Carey September 14, 2008 at 6:06 pm

  358. Ilissa H. September 14, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    This is definitely one of the best blog giveaways out there. I love your book but have not bought a copy yet. Your book has really helped me learn how to be a true contestor. So far this year I have won ~$3000 worth of prizes. Which I think is not bad for just getting started. In addition, since my I started, my love of contests has come a far way. I am now hosting my own blog that features different blog giveaways around the Blogosphere as well as some information on other contests such as Lou Lou Beauty lottery and Quick and Simple daily giveaways. Just recently, I started contacted various stores to inquire about the possibility of hosting some giveaways and reviews for them on my blog. I currently have two going and they are going great. I also have several set up for the weeks to come. This is definitely the most exciting hobby I have ever had. Thank you so much for the inspiration. And… For all of you who love contesting, please feel free to visit my blog and enter my current giveaways (click on my name).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  359. Vicky Boackle September 14, 2008 at 10:47 pm

    I keep hoping your book comes up on paperbackswap, but so far it hasn’t. Would love to win a copy. I won $5,000 for a local school this summer, and have won $8,000 for myself this year.

  368. Kathy Scott September 15, 2008 at 6:14 am

    I relax by entering contest. I tell people all the time you can’t win if you don’t enter. My biggest win is a trip for four to London for a week. I am going to Canyon Ranch Resort in a couple of weeks. I am still waiting for the car win.

  369. Adrienne Gordon September 15, 2008 at 8:20 am

    sounds interesting.

  370. Lisa Gilman September 15, 2008 at 8:45 am

    I’ve been entering sweepstakes for about a year. My boyfriend thinks its a waste of time. Despite only a few small wins, I too believe that you can’t win if you don’t enter and I’m holding out for the big one!

  371. Kaila Burke September 15, 2008 at 8:55 am

    Have read the book…loved it!

  406. JAG September 15, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    Hello. I won my first prize when I was 16 (guessing how many pieces of candy were in a jar). I won a $50 U.S. Savings Bond (which I promptly lost). I didn’t realize it then but I love contests. Now, 25 years later, I’m saving a little time each day to look for great contests (and enter). Thanks for writing your book. I look forward to reading it and discovering new things about my hobby from you. In the last six months, I’ve won about 8 moderate prizes. Looking forward to a BIG win. Regards, Julie

    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  411. Jennifer Walker September 15, 2008 at 8:45 pm

    I am addicted to entering contests merely for the thrill of something arriving unexpectedly. I usually save my winnings to give as gifts to family and friends. If I won this though, I would definitely have to read it for some tips & tricks!

  412. Christine September 15, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    I LOVE sweeping!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  413. Linsey September 15, 2008 at 9:28 pm

  415. Karen September 15, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    I have been entering sweeps for almost a year. My first (and biggest) win was a 32″ Sony Bravia HDTV. I have had about 30 wins this year – gift cards, movie tickets, a slow cooker, etc. I am looking forward to winning my first car and first huge cash prize. It’s gonna happen!

  416. K. Cleaver September 15, 2008 at 9:59 pm

  444. Jacqueline in Atlanta September 16, 2008 at 12:32 pm

    Would love to read the book. I need all the help I can get lately.

    I got hooked on sweeps and contests at a young age. I will never forget winning the “Endless Summer” kit when I was about 15. I still have that Beach Boys double album. I also won 4 half gallons of Braum’s ice cream, suntan oil (back when you practically basted yourself), and a swimsuit of choice from somewhere (Dillard’s, I think). That was a radio call-in. yee haw!

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  445. janeh September 16, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    I’d love to read your book,,,,,what could be better than to win an expert’s advice about winning?……..

  446. Maureen September 16, 2008 at 1:24 pm

    I usually enter because as the book states if you don’t enter you aren’t going to win.

  447. Abbeyg September 16, 2008 at 3:58 pm

    Really looking forward to reading the “lowdown” on sweeping–I don’t consider it a good day until I’ve entered some sweepstakes!!! I really LOVE seeing “Winner” even if it’s something small!! It’s just so much fun!!

  448. Xenia September 16, 2008 at 5:20 pm

  450. Tatiana September 16, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    Thanks for developing your own contest giveaway. I saw the program on television about your knack for contesting and thought I would try it out, because I have been a bit down on luck recently. I needed a new cheap hobby to keep me going when everything else was tough. I started with trying to do it on my own, but have quickly become a fan of your site. The first contest I entered in May this year, (and was somewhat skeptical I must say), and I won a $1000 shopping spree. I have been entering ever since. I would really like to win a copy of your book to read.

  451. Roxanne September 16, 2008 at 7:46 pm

    As a newbie this book would be a real help.

  452. DIANE ANDERSON September 16, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Pick me please. I have to bborrow some ones eles’s copy

  453. Donna C. September 16, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to entering contests. I have it down to a science. My best win so far has been a 32″ TV and one of those built in tv’s for the car (which was worth more than the 32″ by the way.)

  454. Patricia Adams September 16, 2008 at 9:33 pm

    been sweeping for four yrs. won pair of earrings and a dvd. got to be a way to win more. your book may have the answer

  460. Connie September 17, 2008 at 2:06 am

  467. Ronnie Simons September 17, 2008 at 8:34 am

    Since I won a trip to Hollywood (Jean Harlow look a like contest) when I was 21 I have been hooked on winning. Since seeing you on tv a couple years ago, it inspired me to start sweeping. I think your book will bring me
    luck. Keep up the good work Carolyn.

  468. Jacob Kiefer September 17, 2008 at 9:15 am

    I love sweepstakes

  469. Bonny September 17, 2008 at 9:55 am

    Can’t wait for your next show Carolyn ..sounds so very interesting! Have been a contester for almost 30 years and still love it! I got my sister into it and my kids can’t pass one up either. Just found out I am going to be a grandmother and I’m thinking the odds are good that he or she will be one too. Wonder what contests will be like in 20 years time? Look at the changes we have gone through in the last 20 years alone. Hope we are all around to find out. In the meantime do have some free time to read your book! : )

  470. Gretchen September 17, 2008 at 10:20 am

    I’ve been sweeping for two years now and and I love it! I once heard someone describe it as windowshopping your dreams, and it is. I’ve had some nice wins and look forward to more! I’m sure your book would provide further inspiration as well as a few tips!

  471. Rhonda B September 17, 2008 at 11:11 am

    I have been doing this about 6 months with some small wins. Started to get a little burned out & am just picking it up again. Would love the book for some streamlining, timesaving tips & encouragement!

  476. Sam Komaromi September 17, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    you ARE the Queen. I look forward to getting your newsletters, and find they help a great deal in my success of sweeps. Keep it up!!!

    I won this book at the National Convention in San Antonio, TX and have enjoyed reading it. I was surprised to find entries about two of my friends: Carol McLaughlin and Paula Talmud. The book contains great information even for seasoned sweepers (It never hurts to be reminded about how to sweep or contest and WIN!!!!). A great read!

  482. Marla September 17, 2008 at 3:42 pm

    I will be back to checkout your website when I have more time.

    book good

  494. Brenda Hudson September 18, 2008 at 12:01 am

    My first win was $15.00 for a poem I wrote when I was
    15 years old. From then on I was hooked. I used to do a lot of snail mail entries; but stamps have become so
    expensive that I no longer do much mail in entries. Most
    of my wins have been small; but I still get excited even when I win a coupon for a free item. I enter a lot of sweepstakes each day and at all hours of the day; but mainly it’s after 9 PM. I am still waiting for that big Grand Prize win; maybe soon. GLTA

  495. Danielle September 18, 2008 at 12:06 am

    I would love to find out what I should be doing! I have had some nice wins but not the big one yet, I keep dreaming! Maybe your book would help! I’m sure it would be an enjoyable read as Sweepstaking is a part of me now…always trying to get something for nothing! Thanks for the contest!

  518. Carissa D. September 18, 2008 at 1:56 pm

    I like to win so this would be great.

  519. Mel September 18, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    I’d like to win this book–it would be nice to have a large collection of good advice to read all in one place, as opposed to running across sweeping advice all over the internet in hundreds of different places.

  520. Brenda S. September 18, 2008 at 2:34 pm

    I would like to read this book. Thanks!

  521. Diana Abrams September 18, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    Hello! My good friend and neighbor, Loree, recently got me interested in sweeping. She was here last night telling me all about your book; I’d love to read it! So far, I’ve won a handful of small prizes. At first I doubted that sweeping would be effective but now I’m a believer. I spend about 3 hours each day entering. I would LOVE to be your winner!

    Thanks!

    I have heard wonderful things about this book. Hopefully the book will teach me how to fold my entries in the local drawings so I can win — I can’t pass by an entry box without putting an entry in.

  535. Casey September 18, 2008 at 10:05 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’ve been sweeping for a few years and love it!

  542. LINDA MORGAN September 18, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN TRYING TO GET ME TO ENTER CONTESTS FOR 41 YEARS SO I HAVE JUST STARTED. HE HAS ALWAYS TOLD ME “IF YOU DON’T ENTER YOU WILL NEVER WIN”, GO FIGURE!!!

  543. Audrey Okaneko September 18, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    This sounds like an awesome prize. Thanks!

  544. Alecia Gibson September 18, 2008 at 11:42 pm

    I’m honored to be entering your first blog contest. I usually don’t enter blog contests because I can never come up with something creative to say. Today, the creative bug hit me so I’ve been entering every blog contest I can find (that features a prize I’d like to win, of course). Even though I’ve been sweeping for just over a year and have won thousands of dollars worth of prizes your book looks very interesting. Thanks for the contest!!

  545. Amy September 18, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    I’m kinda new to entering sweepstakes. I would really enjoy reading your book! Thanks for the chance!!!

  546. Heather September 18, 2008 at 11:57 pm

    Great prize, Thanks for the giveaway!

  551. flared0ne September 19, 2008 at 12:29 am

    Your title, my approach to life. My tax prep guys love to see me come in; the first thing they typically ask is “so, how much ‘dja win THIS year??” — not that it’s that much, it’s more the idea its more than enough that I DO have to file taxes on it…

  552. Mollie G. September 19, 2008 at 12:37 am

    Of course you’ve heard the old joke about the old lady saying “I’m gonna win the lottery one of these days, I put my faith in God”, and then, after a long life filled with nothing but bad luck, complaining to the sky “What happened??” — and a Voice echoes down from the Heavens saying “So buy a ticket already…”

    Here’s mine.

  553. Bonnie September 19, 2008 at 12:41 am

    I’m entered, so I can win if I have the lucky number. I howled at the full moon, will this help?

  554. Barbara Campbell September 19, 2008 at 12:48 am

    I have been entering sweepstakes for a long time, but my winning has really slowed down. Maybe this book can help me get up to date with my entering methods so I can get in the ‘winning’ groove.

  555. Michelle Y September 19, 2008 at 1:00 am

    Always looking for tips:)…and so I would love to win a copy of your book!! Please count me in, thanks!!!

  556. Melanie Miller September 19, 2008 at 2:02 am

  560. Suzanne September 19, 2008 at 7:35 am

    Finally! A useful book on something that I’m obsessed with! Not many understand that sweeping is not a waste of time, until I tell them everything that I’ve won! They can all have their gaming and such, I want to be a winner in a way that pays off!
    Thanks for the contest opportunity!

  561. Brooke September 19, 2008 at 8:53 am

    I’ve been entering contests for about 9 years, and have been very lucky in winning money, vehicle, trips, TV, BBQ, telephones, etc. I finally got my sister started entering and she’s won 5 prizes this year, including $1,000 shopping spree. I like hearing about other people’s winnings it’s exciting. I would share this book since I have a copy already. I like winning but I also like sharing my tips and favourite contesting websites. I hope that we have a Canadian Contest Convention soon and all these people can attend! Thanks Carolyn.
