Please everyone, follow the rules so you don't get disqualified.

   I recently have had to delete a bunch of entries for my giveaways because of people not following the rules or reading the entry requirements. Depending on the sponsor, every giveaway has a different mandatory entry requirement. If you don't complete the mandatory entry correctly, I will have to delete all other entries.

   I have also had some people  putting in entries with no contact information. I had drawn someone as a winner and had to go back and redraw because they used a "handle" in all posts and did not leave their real name or email. I had no idea who they were or how to contact them. I will require an email address in all mandatory entries from now on.

   I have also noticed a few people using the same email for several accounts. It lets them put in a bunch of entries and that's not really fair to everyone else. From now on, only 1 email per "handle." I will disqualify entries if I see one person putting in a bunch of comments under different handles. Please be fair to everyone else.

     I have a few exciting giveaways coming up soon! Thanks for your cooperation!


  1. Hi! My hubby and I both enter your giveaways. We have our own emails and accounts. I do not know what you mean by "handle," so I just wanted to be sure that we weren't breaking any of your rules or that we somehow missed that it was one entry per household or something. Just being sure because we do NOT cheat! I hope we are not one of the ones at fault and am sorry if we are. I am also sorry that anyone is cheating at all. So tacky! Thanks!

  2. Hi Angie. Thanks for your comment. By handle I mean that where yours says "angie lilly" some say things like "Lovemykid234" or "564HTD" with no name at all or way to know who they are. It's fine for you and your husband to enter. I had noticed someone using names as well as handles like tgy55 all with the same email. That's what I don't want. If it's different family menbers then they should each use their own email. Good luck on your entries!

  3. phew! Good to know! Thanks so much for explaining to me! I am home sick with the flu, so forgive me if I come across a little loopy! LOL Thanks again!
