Day Planner Giveaway with Amazing Participation

The TWO day planner giveaway is finally closed. It was such a short contest (10 days), however it felt like a while. I was very surprised at participation. I have tallied up all of the entries.

The contest thread received 70 comments and we had 52 different participants! After a while I really stopped promoting it, since the chances of winning aren’t too high. I would really rather reward our readers than really overkill the competition and get 500 entries.

However, for some they really wanted to win a planner so they entered the maximum 5 times. I was happy to see two of our great authors on that list. Mark of MeandMyDrum who just wrote about The Power of Link Love  had the maximum amount of entries. So did the K in the house from Shankrila. He has written a few posts for us that includes great articles 9 Reasons for a Blogger to Use a Desktop RSS Reader and 9 Reasons to Use a Desktop Blog Editor.

We had 3 other participants who got the maximum entries. Ginny from Getting Free From Debt, Lynnae from “From Under the Clutter” and a great fellow postie Elizabeth from Table 4 Five.

One person received 4 entries and I couldn’t leave her our. Ashlynn did everything but stumble the post, I can’t hold that against her.

Whether you entered once or 5 times I appreciate such a great response. I do still plan to draw out of a bowl and video tape it. Then, of course, put it on youtube for your viewing pleasure. I know how much GarryConn loves watching me.

Please be patient as there are over 100 entries.

    Sorry ~ I don’t know what “Stumble It” means. I will try harder next time. :)

    Well, I know who you choose is random, but if it’s me, your day planner will be taken on a fabulous trip to the BlogHer conference in Chicago!

    Its okay Ashlynn I had a feeling. Its from stumbleupon. Basically by submitting that you like a site with stumbleupon traffic is sent to their website.
