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’m being premature...Happy New Year!
Here's to a lucky 2017!

So how was your Christmas and New Year? We had a great time and for those of you that have heard me moaning about the hubby’s job over the last year – he has a new one! So I’m feeling very celebratory and the magnum of champers I won back in the summer of 2016 has been well and truly drunk!


Usually at this time I like to tot up all my wins but I’ve been a bit slack on keeping a record for 2016 (which has annoyed me greatly!) and so I’m a bit unsure of my total amount of prizes! I can remember the big ones and some of the smaller ones but I know that as I look at my list now there is definitely some missing! So my comping resolution for 2017 is to be more organised – I’ve even bought myself a special notebook to record all my wins in before I transfer them to my spreadsheet on the computer!


The other thing I always do is make a wish-list for the coming year; I find it great to have something to work towards and crossing off a win on my list is a pretty great feeling!


I’d love to hear from you guys about your wish-lists for 2017 – I find it encouraging to spur each other on and you know how much I love you bragging about your wins! So be sure to get in touch either via email – info@oxonpress.co.uk or our Facebook page .


I’m off now to make the most of the remaining few days of the holiday season; although I may try and get a few sneaky comps in over the weekend.


Wishing you all lots of luck for the coming year and a very happy New Year!
