The Bobatoo ‘Bad Habits’ Blog Competition

By Bobatoo
July 24, 2014

Write a blog post and enter the draw to win £250!

We all have bad habits that we would like to rid ourselves of, from smoking and drinking too much to eating unhealthily, not exercising enough and not getting enough sleep.

While some bad habits may be relatively harmless (and even fun in small doses!) some can be very serious and lead to health and financial problems.

Many bad habits can also increase the cost of life insurance premiums, especially smoking, which can have a huge knock-on effect to your finances in later life.

Although we all know we should drop our bad habits, sometimes it’s not that easy. That’s why we want you to share your experiences and help others in the same predicament. Whether you have successfully managed to drop a bad habit, or if you’re still struggling with trying to quit one, we want to hear your story!

We also have a prize of £250 to give away to one lucky entrant!

To enter, simply publish your ‘Bad Habit’ Story on your blog, telling your readers about your bad habit and what you did to beat it, or how you are still battling it. You could even write about how you enjoy your bad habit and why you don’t plan to ever give up!

We want the full range of bad habits, whether you’re a social smoker or you just can’t stop procrastinating on the internet when you should be working!

Remember to include a reference to this competition on your page (like the below example*) and Tweet your post including our Twitter handle (@abobatoo) and the hastag #badhabitcomp.

If you don’t have your own blog to write on, you can still enter. Simply email your Bad Habits blog posts to us at [email protected] and we’ll publish it for you.

**** Due to popular demand, we have extended the deadline of the competition by two weeks. The competition will now close on Friday 12 September and we will announce the winner here as well as across our social accounts on Friday 19 September – see the full Terms and Conditions below. ****

Good luck!
