You don't want your giveaway prize?? NEW ANNABELLE WINNERS

Saturday, January 08, 2011

I know that title is deep but that's exactly how I feel right now. Excuse my grammar and punctuation it's past 1:00am. I recently had a giveaway for my 2nd Bloggerversary and the turn out was amazing!

All my giveaways are a combination of either from my pocket or sponsored by a company. They are also specific for my readers. There is millions of blogs out there and I want to support the individuals who support me! It's fair..plus times are hard. Who doesn't want a little extra in their stash *shrug*

Moving on...my issue is the lack of involvement from the winners. If your not interested in the prices WHY PARTICIPATE?!? One yes only ONE of my three winners contacted me for prizes..HUH?!?

It's not just me..I am hearing this from several blogs lately.. I refuse to stalk someone who does NOT what the prize.


So if your planning on entering my anyone of giveaway's and not claiming your prize..PLEASEEEE DO NOT ENTER!!
*************************************

On to a happier note congrats to my NEW winners..email your addy, so I can mail you your goodies :)
I used random.org.. There was 186 entries.

  3. I agree with you 100% , people we are in 2011. What, you don't check your emails at least once a day? twice a week??? I don't know if that's rude or stupid. I can't choose LOL

  5. Man, I wish I'd entered. I like free stuff. lol

    But seriously those people have probably gotten so into their new years resolutions or their kids going back to school that they forgot they even entered. :(

  6. It's quite possible they didn't get the notification of the blog announcement (I know I miss them sometimes).

    One thing to consider is asking for their email address as part of their entry. It would not be hard for someone to claim someone else's prize by contacting you by email first. By you doing the contacting with the email from the entry you ensure that the right person gets the prize.

  10. Congrats to the new winners :]
    Did you email them to let them know they've won? Sometimes when people follow like 300 blogs at a time, they don't always get a chance to read the winner announcements. I won two different contests recently and the bloggers never bothered to email me, I just happened to catch the "winner announcement".

    On another note, maybe it's in their spam folder >.< whop whop whop
