I love hosting giveaways, I love choosing the fabulous prizes I want you readers to hopefully receive. I love the comments and the response. But you know what I don’t like about giveaways? The AFTER part. The part when I send three, four, and even five e mails and don’t hear back from the reader who won the contest. The part where the company needs more information and my inbox starts blowing up. The part when I start getting e mails like, “hey Bella, when do I get my prize?” and I then have to follow up to make sure that the prizes are in fact, on the way. Those parts are not so much fun.
I’ve had some ups and downs through the years with giveaways. I knew hosting TWELVE would be hard work, and for the most part it’s gone really smoothly. But of course there are always a few hold ups. I’m still waiting to hear back from TWO winners:
Sof n Free giveaway winner Alycia
Milani giveaway winner Kellz
Please respond to my e mails within 24 hours with your real names and addresses. I understand sometimes my e mails get caught in junk mail folders etc, but I’ve written you several times and really need to hear back ASAP, or I just have to choose another winner. Hope to hear from you soon.
If you’ve won a giveaway and received your prize, please be courteous and let me know! Often I only hear from winners who haven’t yet gotten what they won. It’s nice to know when things work out for the best.
Please keep me posted, giveaway winners!
