I’ve noticed on some blogs recently that they were posting reminders about the rules of their contests. They mentioned that some people were marking themselves as followers when they weren’t. Each one was kind enough to say that the person probably just forgot or thought they had already done it. I was so glad that wasn’t me.
The next time I signed up for a contest it was at a blog that I had been visiting for a year and it was also on my blogroll and on the list of blogs I follow. I knew I had been following for a long time already but I decided to click on the Follow box just to check. Boy was I surprised when it prompted me to hit the button to sign up. I was positive I already had! I hit the button and was added to the list of followers. Now I do it all the time when I visit a blog or join in a giveaway just to make sure. If I ever did that for a contest on your blog I’m very sorry. I’m always honest about my entries and I would never have done that intentionally.
Have any of you encountered the same problem? J. Kaye at J. Kaye’s Book Blog recently put up a great post about this very topic and included detailed instructions and photos to help remedy the situation. I found it to be very helpful so check it out if you get the chance. Thanks J. Kaye! I’m sure others have discussed the same topic too so feel free to link to them in your comments. The more information I can get on something the better!
I’d also like to thank all of my followers. Each and every one is exciting and surprising to me. While it is a benefit to be a follower for my contests I know that at least some of you have signed up of your own free will. It’s very much appreciated and I’m grateful you’re joining me on this crazy ride!
