Giveaway blues...

So, I know absolutely NOTHING about giveaways. I was trying to host one, and had it "open" for a week. I got ONE response. Now I know that not all 80-ish followers of this blog actually read it. I know that some people like the numbers and when you have 500 blogs you "follow", you can't be expected to read the ones that interest you less than your favorites. I get that, and I am OK with that. However, I had hoped that I would have a few more people actually participate! I'm curious...is the product itself not appealing to those of you who are reading this? Is it not age appropriate for your kids or grandkids? I'm just really asking because I want to know. Obviously if people actually ARE reading this blog, then there was something about the giveaway itself that wasn't appealing. So, here's your chance to be honest. What wasn't appealing about it?

I contemplated extending the amount of time that the giveaway was open but then I realized that it wouldn't really be fair to my reader Julie who actually entered it. So Julie...YOU WIN; I've sent you an email to finalize it all. I think that the next time I try to do a giveaway I will do a little more research first so that as many people as possible can benefit from it. Because what fun is a giveaway that no one wants???

If you are ever looking for a great gift for little ones, don't forget about Bailey's Little Bites! More food will be added as the creator is able and she does consider special orders if you have something in mind you would like to see.

I'm off to bed. I hope you all have a great week. I don't know about you but I am not looking forward to yet another Monday. I'm already "working for the weekend" and I haven't even clocked in yet! Just another day in the life right?


  1. J~
    I thought it was a great giveaway, I just don't have little ones around any more. I thought about joining to use it for a gift but thought I'd rather leave it open for people who really wanted it.

    Sorry it didn't work out!


  2. Oh, I wish I would have entered. i do remember reading it, but I was in my drug induced, not really suppose to be on the computer, state. Sorry the turn out was small. I only have 44 followers and I have not tried a giveaway yet, but maybe I shouldn't :)

  3. I was in the middle of a blog chang over or I would have totally entered! I am bummed about it actually! That is the cutest stuff I have ever seen!

  4. Im sorry I would have entered but I just came across your blog not too long ago. I just saw the giveaway. They have some cute things. If you host another giveaway try to find blogs that list all blog giveaway. List your giveaway in as many sites as possible you'll get more entries.

  5. I gave you an award! Go check it out:)
