Out with the old and in with the new look for Spring. I did some Spring cleaning and came up with a faster blog design and a better way for you to find things on Sweeties Sweeps.
If this is your first time you are probably wondering what I am talking about. I have been redesigning this site over the last 2 weeks to match my other site, Sweeties Swag. I decided to keep this site in the brown-toned family and let the other site be purple/lavender tones. That way you will know what site you are visiting when you see the color.
Besides, both colors match my skintone – LOL – and lavender is one of my new favorite colors now that we own a lavender business.
If you are you new to Sweeties Sweeps here is some help:
My name is Wendy and I am passionate about entering sweepstakes and helping other people win so I created Sweeties Sweeps to post the most winnable sweepstakes, contest, and blog giveaways and to teach you how to win on a regular basis. I have been entering sweepstakes and winning prizes consistently since 1993. Read more
This site is all about entering winnable sweepstakes to win fabulous prizes and Sweeties Swag is all about the free stuff we all love to get – that is, when we aren’t winning it 🙂
At Sweetie’s Sweeps I also try to help my readers win prizes:

NEW! Navigating Around Sweeties Sweeps
The fastest way to find sweepstakes to enter on Sweeties Sweeps 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.
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 and Submitting sweeps/blog giveaways is under New Here?
Just give it a test drive and get comfortable where you favorite category is found.
Can you tell I like funkadelic words like nifty and swagtastics? Okay, so I’m odd.
Now, when you click on a post you will see another type of navigation just above the post. This navigation is text links that will take you back to the category the post was posted under or all of the way back to the Homepage. Nifty huh?
