Welcome back! This is week 12 of the MFRW Blog Hop. Today’s topic is ‘My Contest Experiences (Win, Lose, Get Signed?).’ Please be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop crew here.
I’ve missed a couple or more hops due to family engagements. I plan to try and keep up. This post today will be short because I’ve never entered a contest. I’ve read the criteria for a few of them but have not taken the plunge. Too nervous or scared, I guess, but I participated in a workshop to learn how to judge a contest for my chapter.
What experiences do you have entering contests? Please tell me in the comments, I’m really interested in your take on them.

You may learn lots by judging contests. Good luck.
Thanks for the advice and for visiting.
I’ve learned to view contests with skepticism and have come to think that they’re mostly fundraising activities, which seems to me to be a poor idea to have a writing contest.
I’ve heard some authors express your sentiments. Thanks for your input and thanks for stopping by.
