About The Loquax Competitions Blog

The Loquax Blog has been active since 2007. It launched to highlight competitions as well as provide more indepth updates about Loquax itself.

The blog really took off when we highlighted automated competition entry services and how they damaged online promotions. Our blogs published email addresses to look out for and helped many promoters fix this problem.

In 2009 we also featured win a house competitions for the first time. Since then we've become "experts" about the subject and have assisted publications including Moneywise, Which? and The BBC with their interest in these kind of competitions.

Another popular post for compers is about The Prize Directory. Not our list of competitions but those letters you get through the post that encourage you to spend money on finding out if you've won a prize.

In 2021 we're hoping to develop the blog further. We have over 20 year of experience within the competition, online and gambling sectors. We're not afraid to have unpopular opinions and hope our blogs spark discussion. Visitors are welcome to leave comments on our posts - you will need to login with Facebook to do so.

If you would like to feature on the Loquax blog then please feel free to get in touch. We're interested in competitions and related stories. Please note we do not accept sponsored posts.
