Enter Online Sweepstakes in Less Time

As you all know I love sweepstakes but we all have to admit that entering can be a little time consuming. After all you have to fill out all kinds of forms over and over again. And of course, you need to find the ones that you’d like to enter.

Until last week I’ve been using various directories that very old school looking, have no pictures, and are littered with ads. Now I enter sweepstakes at Sweepstakes!Max, which is a new website in the online sweepstakes space. It has many advantages.

First, it makes it super easy to browse the latest sweepstakes and lets you filter them by category, entry type, country, and more. You can also choose from various sort option.

Furthermore, it shows you screenshots of the actual giveaway pages. So you can quickly get a feel for how the site looks like and if you even want to enter such online sweepstakes.

The biggest and coolest thing is that it has a smart bookmark which lets you auto-fill entry forms right within your browser. I love it! It saves me so much time! All you do is click the bookmark and a dialog shows up. You choose what info you want to auto-fill and that’s it. It fills the form for you and you simply submit it!

I can highly recommend you to check it out and stop wasting your time with other directories.

E-Cigarettes as an alternative to smoking tobacco?

I got a bunch of feedback from all you readers on the quit smoking topic. Thank you! It is fair to summarize that no mom wants to smoke while pregnant or while around their kids. But some don’t manage to get off their addiction and it really is a heavy burden to them.

Many managed to quit smoking by using patches or they simply went cold turkey once they found out that they are pregnant. One reader shared that she switched to electronic cigarettes and stated that she is still addicted to nicotine but no longer feels like she is really smoking. She said that she read a lot of reviews and that she is really convinced that electronic cigarettes are a good alternative.

So I did my own research and found this site with thousands of electronic cigarette reviews. It looks like some people are not happy with it because of taste or battery issues. But most reviews are very positive and some of the users of such smokeless devices are even ecstatic about electronic cigarettes and believe that e-cigarette saved their life!

In any case, the best thing to do is to never start smoking and then of course if you are a smoker quit smoking as soon as possible.
