It's been about 8 weeks since I even attempted to enter any giveaways around the blogosphere...why? Scenario: After spending hours entering, posting, tweeting, updating statuses and all of the other entry methods, my hard work pays off. I actually win the coveted prize and patiently wait for its arrival. 1 week. 3 weeks. 6 weeks. 2 months. NADA. Color me disappointed. I know that most of the bloggers have nothing to do with how the prize reaches the winner, so I do not fault them in any way. I feel as if I am still new to the blogging world (even though it's been almost 7 months since I started) and I am still navigating my way slowly. I found the giveaways exciting and it felt good to be rewarded for my small efforts. After not receiving a number of prizes, I decided to leave the giveaways alone for a while and tried to focus on other tasks. That has proven to be a greater task than I anticipated. My blogging fell by the wayside along with facebook and twitter as well. I guess I needed a break. No matter the excuse, I decided today that I am going to give it another try. Hopefully my luck is just as good as it was (hopefully better) and before long you will be reading about my wondrous bounty thanks to awesome blogs and spectacular sponsors. I am also going to keep my word about my intent to host my own 100 follower giveaway. Hopefully it won't be long now. Thanks for reading--Happy Thursday!!!
