I have not had many drawings as of late, but with the holiday season coming up I am offering TONS and you can find them all here on my Drawings Page.
With that said, I always feel bad when I click the button to draw the automated winner. I feel bad because I want ALL of my readers to be able to win. I am hopeful with as many giveaways as I am running - right up until the holidays - that many of you will find yourself announced on my Drawing Winners Page.
Not too long ago, as my blog is not very old, I wrote an article called Drawing Entries 101 that you may want to check out.
I also feel really bad when an automated draw winner has to be disqualified for not following rules. Something else I have learned about since I began my blog. I always read carefully what the rules are for each entry, such as word count in comments, or if I need to respond within a specific time frame to a win notification, etc.
I also can not wait to show you something pretty major I won in a drawing recently myself as soon as it arrives and is all set up. I have to admit, I do not enter a ton of drawings, but when I do, I give it my all. This time it totally paid off.
Fact is we can't win every drawing we enter, and I always hope that my readers do not get upset when their name is not selected, as I have no power over this, but I do always wish every single one of you could win on my blog.
If I could grant you each one fun wish it would be that you win at least one really amazing drawing this coming year.
I hope to see all of your names on my Winners Page eventually but you are all winners to me!
Oh and I don't always feel just bad by the way, it feels great notifying a winner and finding out how excited he or she is! I love those emails I get in return!
All I can say for now is, keep coming back, do those "daily" entries as they go a long way, and don't give up. I will have a lot more fun giveaways coming soon!
