COMPS ARE COOL!
Tuesday 26th March 2013
It’s all go at Puffin HQ this week as the team sift through the FANTABULOUS entries for the Could You Be Coco competition… drawing up a shortlist of ten is NOT going to be easy! Once the finalists have been selected and informed, I’ll be getting involved too, helping the team to pick our wonderful winner. SOOOO excited!
That winner will be starring as Coco in her very own episodes of CathyCassidyTV very soon… how cool? I love that you are all enjoying CCTV so much, btw… have you seen the brand new v-log from Summer this week? It tells you just what happened behind the scenes at Summer & Skye’s joint 13th birthday party, when Skye got lost in the snow. You can watch it here – and remember to comment to be in with a chance of winning this week’s £10 New Look voucher.
I love doing lots of comps, freebies and giveaways both on the website and on my Facebook Fanpage… but not everyone approves. Last week I had an upsetting message from a reader who feels I should stop doing comps because ‘people would only be disappointed,’ and advising me to find a professional actress for Coco. I couldn’t reply, as the reader didn’t give me her name or email. :o(
If she is reading, I’d like her to know I genuinely think one of my cool and talented readers will be perfect for the role of Coco. If none of us took risks, entered comps or went all-out to try to make our dreams happen, surely the world would be a sadder, duller, less hopeful place? If I hadn’t tried to make MY dream happen, there’d be no CC books, f’r’instance. And sure, not everybody can win every comp, but the way I see it is that you can have fun trying and learn along the way that it’s the TAKING PART that counts, not the end result.
I guess the answer is that nobody HAS to enter a comp if they don’t want to, but what do YOU reckon? Should I keep on doing comps? (I need to know because the annual My Best Friend Rocks comp is looming in the summer!) Tell me what you think…
