Sometimes people see titles of news articles, clippings, blog posts and such and read the piece only because the title caught their attention. We often bypass something really news worthy because we don't think it is of interest. I learned that during my short journalism major stint in college.
For instance, the title of this blog post is "Pink Cricut Explore One Giveaway" and it can seem to mean that I am giving away a Pink Cricut Explore but the truth is the giveaway was my previous post that was titled "Did You Read The Explore One Reviews?". And before anyone cries out "that's not fair" I will tell you I don't care. I did it that way on purpose because I wanted the winner to be someone who reads this piece of crap blog that I put hours of work into instead of someone just coming to win something. The only requirement was to leave a comment on that post, there were no hoops to jump through like there are in most giveaways, no one had to follow my blog, follow me on facebook, share the post in 5 different places or anything else. All they had to do was be someone who regularly read my posts and leave a comment....just that simple.
I would like to thank everyone who read all the reviews and commented whether here or on Facebook. I also appreciate all the comments about you guys trusting my opinions and having faith in my honesty when I review products, that really means a lot to me.
To chose a winner I used a number generator and the winning number was 36. I then copy and pasted all the comments that were left before the deadline of midnight Sunday, September 6th. I guess I could have printed them all off and then drew a winner from a hat, or probably a bowl since I don't have any hats, but I didn't want to waste my printer ink or time sitting there and cutting them all apart. This method was just a lot easier for me and let's face it...I'm lazy!
And the winner of the Pink Cricut Explore One is ES who commented "Thanks for this giveaway Okie. I rolled my eyes a bit when I read your "requirements"... should have known they weren't real. :)" and I had to laugh at her comment being the winning one since she directly commented about the requirements to win.
ES please EMAIL me your contact information so I can forward that to Provocraft and they can send you the prize.
