What am I talking about? Well... The experiment that is drey's library giveaways is moving on to the next stage: a bigger (!), better (hopefully!!), new and improved (crossing fingers!!!) thingamabob. I had to throw that in there somewhere, I've been jonesing to use that word for some reason... Yes, I'm wacko today!
Anyway... Changes. I like lists, so here we go:
- I'm removing the "follower" restriction on my giveaways. This means that you do not have to follow the blog, or on twitter, or on facebook's NetworkedBlogs. Of course, you're totally free to do so if you'd like, I LOVE seeing the counts go up. But. No longer necessary for giveaways. Unless specifically stated.
- I'm removing the forms for giveaways, too. While the forms are cool and all, I still have to do WORK: create form, post form, gather spreadsheet, tally up extra entries, put randomizer to work, post winners. Instead we'll be using the comments feature. 1 comment per person per giveaway. Extras will be deleted. Yes, this means that I'll have to monitor comments for duplicate entries, but it's still less work! And as comments are numbered, all I have to do is put randomizer to work. Et Voila! Now, to find a magical widget that'll take the randomizer output and post the winners for me... Hmm...
- Just 'cuz a 2-point list seems kinda pointless. But I had nothing else to add. So consider this a placeholder of some sort. I just don't know for what yet, or whether it'll be used at all. hoo boy, I'm really in a funky mood, eh?
Thank you for your patience whilst I figure out what's going on here on this ol' blog! I really appreciate your comments, visits, and emails. And while I always say change is good, I am thankful that y'all stick around for the dust to settle every time I "renovate"... THANK YOU
