BlogFest -- WOW -- what a fun event!
I had more fun than a barrel full of dachshunds! I had 358 entries to my giveaway and I will have a winner later today when I add in all of the extra tweet/post entries. I visited all of the stops and found some amazing new blogs. I didn't enter all of them though. I used Google documents for my giveaway and loved it when other bloggers used it as well, since the entry was quick and easy. I may start using this for all of my contests.
I dreaded those giveaways that wanted to ask you a bunch of questions or were so complicated that you has to read every word. I skipped those. Also, I don't like to give out my address unless I have won something. There was one giveaway that wanted to know my birthday! OK, that birthday date with my address and real name is a giant DANGER sign to me. All I could think of was that wouldn't be good for this information to be floating around on someone else's computer. I delete all of my winner's giveaway information after six weeks since that is about the time it takes for a publisher to send out a book.
Thanks so much to Cinnamon at A Journey of Books. This was the most organized event I have ever participated in!
