Congratulations to Terri Webster Schrandt of Second Wind Leisure Perspectives, winner of my Winter Giveaway.
As a thank-you to my followers, I announced a winter drawing in January for a Hartmann Herringbone Carry On, and I conducted the drawing on February 28, using a random number generator. We exchanged emails, and Amazon shipped the Hartmann bag to Terri last week.
Thank you, Terri, for sending the pictures — and I hope your husband doesn’t steal the carry-on :-).
I encourage you to head over and look at Terri’s blog — I’ve enjoyed reading her posts on multiple topics, from advice for bloggers, to one of her new posts on Ten Ways to Beat the Winter Blues.
I will do another Giveaway in the spring; my aim is to conduct four drawings this year, most likely luggage because it works well for everyone.
There will be one important change for future giveaways. In the Winter, I included both WordPress Followers and Email subscribers in the drawing.
Going forward, only Email Subscribers will be part of the drawings.
There are two reasons for this: one of my goals is to grow my email followers, and secondly, it is much easier to conduct the drawings with email list data that can be downloaded to a spreadsheet. I do not sell or share my subscriber list, and of course, followers can unsubscribe at any time.
I encourage my WordPress followers to add an email subscription to be included in future drawings.
