SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

I’ve lost my comping mojo!



I’ve seriously lost my comping mojo this week! My attention span is zero and my emails are building up! Not good considering that in less than a month’s time the advents will be starting!


As always we will be running the best Advent Competitions site out there; your complete go to guide for that special comping time of the year. Make sure you keep an eye out for details and I’ll make sure to mention it on our Facebook page too.


So in the meantime I am giving myself a good talking to in order to sort out this comping drought in preparation for the busiest time of a comper’s hobby! Looking back through winning letters and photos helps with my motivation and I know the smallest of wins will kick-start me back into my old habits.


Wish me luck!

Tuesday Talk! (And a little prize draw!)


There are always hundreds of EOM (end of month) comps doing the rounds and I just wondered how many of you managed to be organised enough to do them? Every month I tell myself to start entering them in the middle of the month by doing a few each day so I’m not so inundated on the last day, but I never do! So tonight I’ll be settling down as early as I can and ploughing my way through as many as I can. (Vowing to myself that things will be different next month, ha ha!)


I tend to be quite organised with my comping routine but the EOM stuff just beats me every time. My main comping time is in the evenings but I do try and sneak some dailies in through the day if I can. I concentrate on staying a few days ahead of the closing dates so I can have an evening off every weekend and I keep a spreadsheet of wins to track prizes.


So, how do you organise your comping? I’d love to hear from you and I’d like to post the best tips on our Facebook page to help other compers get their game into gear! So you can either post on our wall  or email me at: info@oxonpress.co.uk. And at the end of the month I’ll choose my favourite to win a little something.


Chat soon!
