Who knew?? Blogging really pays!!

 

It never fails!  It is always the same thing no matter where I go.  I can hear the question coming from a mile away.  It goes something like this...

"Can I have your name?"
My name is Trey Luckie.
"Luckie huh?  Are you really lucky??"

I have become immune to it by now.  I just usually respond by saying that I am indeed a "lucky" person and that I seem to do OK.  I really do consider myself a lucky person in the fact that I have been so blessed, but I know what they mean when they ask "Are you lucky?".  They want to know if with a last name like "Luckie", do I have some sort of magical horse shoe or rabbits foot in my back pocket.  The answer is YES!!!!

Let's look back over the past few months.  When I started blogging I knew nothing of blogger give aways or contest.  I saw the first blogger give away on my Mom's blog.  Seemed like a bunch of women were giving away little items to get people to follow their blogs.  It sounded like a pretty good idea to me.  My Mom even won one of the little contest. 

Along comes the Outdoor Blogger Network!  The OBN starts having weekly gear review opportunities for its members.  Simply agree to write a product review on your blog and you can enter yourself for a chance to receive some pretty cool products.  I started doing just that.  My first winner was a gun cleaning kit from Otis Technologies.  It was kind of exciting to win this little game, so I branched out and started a pretty impressive little winning streak, much to the dismay of my good buddy The Downeast Duck Hunter and to the fine lady at Bullets and Biscuits!  Here are my blogger winnings to date...

Otis Technologies Gun Cleaning kit- OBN Gear review
Top Shot Fan kit including a T-shirt, season one DVD, shot glass and phone cover- Scent Free Lip Gloss giveaway
Scavenger Hunt which included $50 Bass Pro Shop gift card, one pair of Magnum Boots, several packages of Jerky from the House of Jerky, and an outdoor cookbook.  It also included a bonus prize from my friend at Bullets and Biscuits.  A jar of the best grape jelly I have ever had!- Ben G Outdoors
Bait casting Reel- OBN Gear review (I have not received it yet)

Not a bad little run!  I admit that I look forward to these little contest and the prizes that come along with them.  I continue to register at the OBN for gear reviews and I am determined to win the giveaway that is currently happening over at Bullets and Biscuits just because she called me out!!  Check it out as she is giving away some strawberry/banana spread!

Until the next contest!!  GOOD LUCK!!!

Bitterness does not look good on you Duckman. Not good at all! Keep trying and maybe one day you will get there!

Bitterness is just a taste bud, just like sweetness...
