I decided not to mention this until it actually happened. Well, this morning it happened. AOL Uncut videos had a contest during the month of June (I believe it was just for June) and any Uncut videos you shot would be considered for a daily prize. It had nothing to do with the content, it was just a random daily drawing (anyway that's the way I understood it). I got an email last week, saying that an Uncut video I had shot, was randomly drawn and to please reply to the email with my name and mailing address. RED FLAG !! They gave me a link to go back to their blog about this contest and pointed out that since they only had email addresses, if they chose a winning video they would need the mailing address to be able to deliver the prize. Ok, that makes sense...so with somewhat mixed feeling...I replied with my mailing address. Then a couple days later I got another email, saying my name had been drawn and that I should receive my prize in a week or so.
This morning the FedEx truck pulled up and the driver brought me a package from America Online, Inc. Inside was my prize....from Pure Digital a Point & Shoot Video Camcorder. Also was a letter; "Congratulations on winning the Pure Digital Point & Shoot video camcorder ! We hope you enjoy the Pure Digital camcorder & hope you continue to use Uncut Video from AOL. From all of us at UnCut Video, thanks for your support ! The UnCut Video Team "
Ok Lanny, I have to get this thing figured out so I can take videos on the cruise.....what do you think?
