*Warning, I swear in this post*
I received a really nasty email earlier saying this:
Subject: Ending giveaways prior to deadline…
In the future do not end giveaways prior to the end date you post. This is really suspicious and many followers are beginning to wonder why you do this. Recently, you ended Melissa and Doug earlier than the said date.. You announced a winner and it says the contest goes until tonight (Oct 29th) at 10pm… We will be contacting the company about this.
So, I guess my explanations of why I had to end my giveaways, did not register to this person! So, I will explain again..
I had to end some of my giveaways early, because I was not going to manually transport 500 or more comments to my new word press blog. This would have taken me hours upon hours to do, and I just cannot spend time like that on my computer, I have a family, I have two young kids. Just to give you an idea, it took me SIX months to manually copy and paste all of my 1,036 blog posts I had/have. That was a little each day, so that I could be there for my family.
I have NEVER ended a giveaway early, go ahead and check, before the blog switch. So, for someone to question MY honesty as a blogger, is RIDICULOUS. I don’t appreciate it and I will NOT stand for it. The companies that I work for are amazing and I highly doubt, because I had to end some giveaways early, would make these companies that I have built a connection with, think I was not legitimate.
I hope I clarified myself a bit more. Some people just need a bit more explaning then others, so this is for the person who emailed me (see above) and anyone else who still does not get why I had to end my giveaways early. It really should not be that big of a deal, and it amazes me that some feel that it was. I thought blogging about my decision to end them early, posting on Twitter, Facebook page AND Facebook Fan page would have gotten the word out about this, but apparently I was not thorough enough.
I hope this time I was crystal clear? If not, no need to come to my blog anymore because I DON’T need someone pestering me and treating ME badly. Get over it and MOVE the fuck on.
