Life in a Break Down Competitions - What Could You Win?

Before blogging took up most of my time I used to love entering competitions. From this, I became friends with many wonderful compers and of course won all manner of amazing prizes!

While I no longer have the time to be able to enjoy my previous hobby. I have been able to set up the ability to run competitions right here.

The ability to run competitions here on Life in a Break Down, allows me to give back to the community who once welcomed me with open arms as one of their own.

Also, I totally admit I get just as excited sending out that “you won” email as I often did learning of winning a prize of my own.

Life in a Break Down is and will always be a completely comper friendly website. I will never disqualify anyone for unfair reasons and have long fought for compers rights within the blogging community. As I believe compers are consumers and I am thrilled to have a number who come back daily to read my posts. Thank you all.

So with that, all said. Here are competitions open both here, on my other websites and across the internet from other amazing bloggers.

    Hi, sorry, I entered my e45 blog post then realised I had made a spelling error in the linky, deleted it, then tried to re add it, and now it’s in moderation. Sorry for being a technical plonker, could you tweak it for me please? Karen

  16. Christy Peeples DuBois

  24. William Gould

    Hi S-L,
    Do you have an entry route for those of us that do not have a tablet or smart phone? And therefore no Instagram?

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      Hey, I am afraid I’m not actually running the £200 competition (which is why its hidden here – I’m just helping get the word out about it) so I cannot help with entry routes. Are you able to borrow a phone and just create an account? Once you have the account your be able to follow from the computer? 🙂

  25. Kristina Trick

    Ahh count my entries as invalid if they come up! I accidently put my instagram names as my twitter names and accidently pressed enter halfway through typing. Messed it right up lol. Just thought I’d let you know to save you the bother of trying to validate it in the unlikely event my name pops up x
