Photo Contests, Writing Projects and Other Stuff

Posted by Fitz Villafuerte under Announcements, News and Events on June 6, 2008

One of the reasons why I love blogging is because it gives me an opportunity to earn money and win a lot of exciting stuff by simply joining contests. Yes, it’s a no cash out, minimum effort and fun way to get some freebies. Take my domain name and web hosting for example. Did you know that I got these for free because I won in a blog essay writing contest? Yup, that’s right! πŸ˜€

So, if you’re not really doing anything in the next few days, then I encourage you to do some blog hopping and see if there are any online contests and writing projects you could join. Who knows, you might be lucky enough to win some of them. And to start you on your quest for free stuff, here are some current Philippine Blogosphere contests and writing projects you could join.
