In all honesty, I had never paid much attention to the monthly “View Giveaway” contests on aBlogtoWatch in my 4 + years of regular reading prior. I was over competitions and sweepstakes due to a still “chilling” memory in my childhood where I’d believed I won the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes simply to discover from my parents whom I had been duped. That’d ruined the thrill from a young age, and it still haunts me to the day.Fast ahead to present day where I’m still veeeery skeptical of all competitions and sweepstakes… even more so because I have worked in media sales and marketing for the past 15+ years. I hardly registered the monthly competitions on aBlogtoWatch. I kept looking in the glossy pics of this opinion, with its own strap combinations and manly “Blue Devil” name, and that I couldn’t get it out of my mind. While tossing and turning in my bed around 2am, unable to sleep some work boggle after that night, I threw caution to the end and tapped out what I believed was a clever and well-thought-out reply to this challenge and submitted it into the ether.As soon as I pressed “send” I had a gut feeling that my entry might be a winner… or maybe it was just foolish Publisher’s Clearing House naiveté around again? Naiveté be damned, that feeling I had felt real enough that I told myself I would hold off pulling the trigger in my “blue watch” order until after the competition winner was declared, just in case.
