Comment Friday… the 13th…

I’m a little late on Comment Friday, but that’s okay. Last week I stumbled everyone’s blog who left a comment. This week I will go through and join everyone’s MyBlogLog if I haven’t already. *Don’t forget to join ours!*

The topic this week shouldn’t surprise many. I have been blogging about contests lately, they have been pretty popular lately. There are tons of contests going around, and for good reason. We want to know, have you ever won a contest? What have you won? This would also be an excellent time to plug your contest if you are running one.

Remember we chose several contests to blog about on the weekend, so we might just pick yours. Send your bribes to me!

You don’t have to comment about the “topic”, just let us know whats on your mind. That may just start its own discussion. Thank you for participating!

    Ooh.. Am I the first one?

    I have never won a contest. Your day planner might be my first one. :-)

    Does anyone really have experienced something bad or spooky because of Friday the 13th?

    What’s the deal with this day?

    I’ve never won an online contest. Once upon a time I won rather nice SLR (way back before the “rather nice ones” were digital, or even the “crappy ones” for that matter) at work shortly after I started working for one company. HR had decided to run a contest of everyone hired that month (or was it that year) and drew my name at random.

    I have run one online contest, but perhaps the reward wasn’t for everyone (I gave away BlogExplosion credits). I doubt it did anything to boost my blog’s presence!

    I was thinking to turn off the computer but thought: ‘maybe I should check the Comment Friday first’. At last, here we are.

    I’ve never won an online contest; don’t think I’m that lucky anyway. Thanks goodness that nothing bad has happened to me yet today. Just miss my sister as she had to travel back to her home at noon today and don’t know when would be the next time to see her.

    Thanks for stumbling my blog Matt! I’ve just stumbling BAYB. :)

    I have never run, or won, an online contest, although I am hoping both will change soon!

    I’m all about online communities though. :)

    To date, I’ve won $30 in cash, and several site reviews. I love a good contest and am working on one of my own. I know what I’m going to offer for the prize(s), I’m just not sure about how to properly word the contest to make it sound right.

    As for it being Friday the 13th, unless you happen to be a member of the Knights Templar, I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

    I’ve won $100 from Pureblogging (which went on some shoes), and some tickets to watch Cricket in Colwyn Bay. That was ace, I got rather drunk that day!

    Friday the 13th I always thought was unlucky because Jesus died on a Friday (Good Friday) and 13 is just generally a pretty unlucky number.

    I’ve never won a contest, but I haven’t entered very many. This is because I prefer not to give out my address online. However, I am willing to enter contests for non-tangible items such as ebooks, links, and free accounts (such as web hosting and Flickr Pro).

    I’ve entered many more contests than I’ve won. About the only real nice item I’ve won is a Fox News golf umbrella.

    Jake – I’m with you about not entering contests because of the address issue. You could always look into getting a PO Box, if you wanted

    I entered your contest and think I’m already a member of your mybloglog community. I know I visit often if I’m not. lol.

    As for giveaways, yes I’ve won a few….a tent, flip video, books. Hope you are having a good friday.

    Gosh…. about MyBlogLog even, sorry for mistake, have no idea where did I got Blogcatalog LOL

    @Sephyroth: I may consider doing that, but it doesn’t seem worth it… I’d prefer to keep my mail at my current address, and I may never win a single contest.

    Never won anything. Never entered a contest, either, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.

    I could have won tho, many times. So I’m told. Also a few times I could have been elligible to win, I think. But I had to do something, can’t remember what, now. Anyway, I came really really close.
