It's been a crazy weekend for me, but I'm still wishing it wasn't over yet! In any case, I'm here to make a few announcements, and hopefully get a response from one of my contest winners!
First things first: I am starting a new feature on here called "Berrie's Tuesday Ten" where I'll be bloggy interviewing independent online business owners (and maybe a few cool parent-bloggers for good measure). Questions will be funny, on-point, and make you want to come back for more!(I hope...)
I hope to publish the first interview soon, and will gladly take any suggestions for who you think should go next!
Another reason for this post is my desperate search for a response from divrchk , who won the contest here for the Mircroplane Foot File! While I posted the information on PRIZEY, as I stated in the original post, I have not yet heard from this lucky lady, and got nil on an email query as well.
Now, before anyone starts grumbling about my 4-day rule, keep in mind that this contest ran BEFORE I implented that. So in all fairness, Divrchk really has the rest of time to get back to me, but we're going to be realistic here.
If you are reading this, Divrchk, or someone who knows you has stopped by, the time is now 12:46 a.m. on Sunday night, EST. I am giving you until 12:46 a.m. EST on Tueasday night to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your info so I can get your prize out. After that, all bets are off and I go back and randomly pick a new winner.
(And while I'm at it, Keep it classy, Jen! has two more days to get in touch with me for the Fine Art of Family necklace!:) :) :)
This also brings me to PRIZEY itself. I post winners names there to make things easier on myself (no hunting for winner's email addresses or beating my head against a wall!) and on the winners (one stop shopping for tons of contests and a simple way to check on all the ones you entered!) for a reason. PLEASE do me the favor of checking that site and getting back to me in the alotted amount of time. Providing your email address in your comments also will save me a huge headache an allow me the time to get to posting my next contest (and working, and playing with Buttercup, and blah, blah, blah...)
I'm also going to run a list of winners on the left hand side of the blog, but that still means you need to do your homework and check back to see if you won!
And that four day rule? As much as I don't like to be a (insert choice name here)about it, but I have implented that rule for my sanity and for the fairness of all who enter my contests. So four days means just that. I'll post winners to PRIZEY, try to email you, and then wait. And yes, I will have already contacted a new winner by the fifth day.
So there ya go! I'll be back soon with more reviews and contests, but for now, it's time to pick some new winners and get to bed before Buttercup wakes up!
