DogsinwaitingSo whether you know me or not, you’ve probably figured out that I’m not a money for nothing kind of lady. You won’t see anything in my budget for lottery tickets or anything like that. I have, however, decided to  investigate this whole online photo contest thing after my dentist epiphany.

The original inspiration WEZQ your easy listening station (what other music would be playing in a dentist’s office? Death metal?) proved to be a cumbersome web site. I mean, voting by email? Bleh. There had to be something better.

A web search quickly yeilds a ton of results. I decided not to enter anything that required a fee or anything that was too big (no offense to Sadie but entering her picture in a National Geographic-type contest is like taking a small town beauty queen and plopping her into Miss Universe, expecting her to do well). In the end PamperedPuppy and Cutest Pet Contest got submissions. I also submitted the lovely photo in this post to because it makes me giggle whenever I see it. Hope it makes you smile too. Also will let you know when (ok, if) the cash starts flowing in.

Summary: Online photo contests are a long shot and nothing to count on but worth five minutes of effort to submit photos to free ones.
