I got the suprize of a lifetime today. And it was actually a good thing. LOL
This past July, I ran across a blog contest and went ahead and entered. I wrote up a post about a site called Cranking Widgets and sent it in. Well, I never heard anything back a figured that they picked someone else as the winner and I somehow missed it. Well, I didn't miss anything.
As I was going through my RSS feed reader this morning, I noticed that the site had a new post announcing the winner and to my surprize, it was me. I nearly passed out. What did I win, you ask? I won $50. Yes boys and girls, I'm 50 bucks richer than I was last night. And I didn't even have to set up an illegal poker room in my basement to do so. LOL
I want to thank Brett Kelley, owner of Cranking Widgets, for sending my winnings so quickly. I had the money in my paypal account within only a few minutes after seeing that I had won. The best part about winning this contest was that everyone who entered were placed in a randomizer that chose the winner. I never win anything like that. I was blown away.
So, boys and girls, remember, never give up. Even when you think that all is lost and there is nothing left, something good can always come out of nowhere and wrap itself around you.
