Sweetie’s Picks

If you don’t have time to enter a lot of sweepstakes or blog giveaways make sure you at least enter my Sweeties Picks as many times as you are able. I only put highly “winnable” sweepstakes and instant win games under the Sweeties Pick category so you have a great chance of winning a prize.

How to Find Things on Sweeties Sweeps

The fastest way to find just about anything on this site is to click the Categories on the navigation bar at the top of the screen. When you hover your mouse over that bar you will see drop-down menus and all of your choices will be there. There you will find sweepstakes listed by type of prize, restriction, or ending date.

Because of the drop-down menus I can now create more categories to put sweeps in and it won’t take up anymore space on the page. It’s easy to remember where everything is found too. Just always remember to look on that bar for whatever you are searching for.

If the drop-down menus do not work for you it is most likely the browser you are using. I wrote an article explaining why websites freeze and some things you can that might help.

You can always use the search feature at the of the screen as well.

What else is found on the navigation bar?

  • Blog Giveaways are now on the navigation bar
  • All of my Teach Me How articles
  • Contact Information
  • How to submit a sweepstakes or blog giveaway is under New Here?
  • Advertising, Media and PR opportunities can be found under New Here?

Just give it a test drive and get comfortable where your favorite category is found.

    How do I get the winners list for the Staples Tony Hawk Giveaway contest?
    The website says I should go on :
    but to no avail.
    I just cannot believe that as many times as I entered per day, every day, from the beginning until it ended (9/17/11) that I did not end (with 10,000 prizes given away). Was this a scam? I was not notified, that I know of.
