It was a mixed emotion when you win a certain bidding specially in terms of bidding to get a project. I recently win a project thru bidding and for me it is really something big that can really make a difference on my bank account lol!!!! It was a easy project that will keep me busy for the next 2 months and I really thanks god for giving me this great work. How about you my dear mylot friends have you ever win a bidding project or a any bidding experience to share? Thanks for sharing in advance. Have a great mylot day!

Yes I have won at bidding I used to belong to a lot of piad to read sites and I would bid to win at their actions on ebay and I won many times it was very exciting and I loved it, as it gave me a thrill of winning and therefore I was able to have more paing members on my sites but now they do not do this any more.

I really agree my friend, winning in a bidding was really a great experience and aside from the fact that we will earned from it, we also got a chance to enhance and develop our skills too! Thanks my friend.

I've bid on a few things on eBay, and I also bid on basilmarket (Maplestory Buy & Sell). I get really excited when I win a bid, it's kinda fun although you're using money, lol

Yes, I did. I used to bid company cars. We won several times and the cars for bidding are as is and where is basis. I have won and got good buy cars and made profit out of them by re selling. The last bid was really frustrating, I had alot of problems with the engine, tires, windshield and body painting plus it had bumps in front of the car. Wow, it took me more than to months to re sell it because of all the repairs.Luckily the insurance was not yet expired. I sold it but earned a little. From then on i stopped bidding cars. There are also risks in bidding. For me, there are lessons learned

Yes, I once won a bid to edit and proofread a novel. It was really strange because the writer chose someone else initially, so I had given up and then about three weeks later, he contacted me to let me know he had let her go, that things just weren't working out. It's pretty cool. It really helped instill confidence in me in my abilities as an editor.

Congrats ,Maribel! Sounds like you hit the jackpot ,buddy ,lol.Hope it was a fat one and makes your bank account swell :D Yep,I won a bidding not long back.Can't say I participate in it ,but this was by chance and I kindof liked it too,lol. It was a flight down south in my country and I didn't know that the airlines has bidding going on in the flight.So, when I browsed through the list , I liked a set of pearls and matching ear-rings so much so that I bid on it just for fun :-P It was the minimum bid and I wasn't expecting to win it,but something told me that not too many are crazy like me to bid in a flight :-P What do you know ? The stewardess came to me after all final bids were submitted and gave it to me,Lol.I won't say I couldn't believe that I won it , because I was playing to win ,even if it was for fun ,lol.I joked with her saying 'thanks for the gift' and she didn't know what to say :-P Nah,of course I didn't put her in a difficult position and paid her eventually ,lol.Well, I had a fight with the friend I purchased it for .So, when I came home and my mother asked who it was for ,I gave it to her because anyway ,I was feeling like throwing it away after the fight.And the duffer that I am ,I even told her that I gifted it to my mom in my anger and she laughed at it ,lol. (sorry for the late post-was little caught up)

Thank God for having another cause to congratulate you so soon after your birthday and accompanying events. It could be great winning in a bidding or an auction. It creates a euphoria similar to that with winning a lottery. I have not won any significant biddings before, but the winnings I have experienced before at the 'obsolete items' disposal raffles in my former place of work, has afforded me an idea of how one feels in that kind of situation. I won serviceable table and standing fans in the respective raffles, and I am still using them today. However, in your own case, you have to render a performance in return. You will need to be very conscienscious in handling the project so as not to be blacklisted against future chances. I wish you a satisfactory performance of the job.

Yep. I'm always bidding at eBay, it's a nice experience but I don't get sucked into the bidding competition like some people do. I only place the highest amount I'm willing to pay and let eBay do their automatic bid. However, there was this time that this person outbid me for only 3 cents. That was a bit disappointing.

The feeling of exhiliration was there. My team and I who was bidding for a huge Government project, won the bid. We had sleepless nights and spent long hours at work to get this bidding. That was a fantastic feeling 'cos a lot of other people will benefit from this project. But that was a few years back.... still I cannot forget that moment...:

I am a student doing my engineering degree ... I never got any chance for me take part in any kind of bidding ... I took one bidding contest in one of our channels ... The program was that the viewers can bid through their mobile for differnt things in that days program... The one that bids for the lowest and unique bid will win it.. I made three bidding but i lost all.... Anyway i would like to congratulate you of the winning and wish you good luck and for wish it fill your bank account...
