I have winners to announce in TWO giveaways today.
And let’s not forget,
Congratulations! I’ve emailed you all, and you have until Tuesday to send me your email addresses. After that I will have to draw new winners.
I do have to mention something that really disappointed me during these giveaways, specifically during the “The Tory Widow” giveaway. I had one person who attempted to enter 6 separate times. I don’t mean that she attempted to gain extra entries by twittering or blogging about the contest, but that she sent in 6 different comments entering the contest as if for the first time. The second and third times she entered I assumed it was just a mistake and wished she had scrolled up to look for her name. After the fourth time I deleted all but one of her entries so she didn’t unfairly get extra chances. I eventually had to completely disqualify her because, whether purposefully or not, she was depriving those who followed the rules of their equal chance to win. And of those 6 entries, only two of them even came close to answering the question necessary to enter!
The moral of the story? I read all my entries. Even if you wait a few days, I’ll probably think your name looks familiar and go back and check – especially if you don’t even follow the directions on HOW to enter!
