I’ve been hosting quite a number of giveaways lately. Some I try to make really easy – on me and the entrants – while others are a bit more difficult.
Generally, I try not to require anything special for the entries. Just enter here. I keep a google doc so everything is in one place and I just pick someone using random.org.
However, sometimes I make it hard. I require tweets, comments, or followership. Because I really am obsessive-compulsive – as we learned earlier – I do go through every entry and check to see if they’ve completed the required hoops.
Yes, maybe, it would make more sense to see who wins and then just make sure their entries have been made accurately but, well, it’s me.
It really IRKS me that people who enter my contest say they’re a follower and aren’t. I mean. It’s so easy to check GFC. If you weren’t really going to follow me then just say you’re an email follower for goodness sakes – there is no way to check that!
Of course, no, if they say they’re a follower I leave them in the contest because maybe, just maybe, I’m checking the GFC thingy incorrectly but REALLY?
So, now I’m left wondering, is it just me? What do you do? Do you even check?
