iPad Contest Winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest to win an iPad! There were over 4,500 ballots earned in total between the comments, email subscribers, twitter followers, retweets, facebook fans and blog links. It took me about three hours to tabulate all the entries as some people commented more than once or tweeted more than twice and I had to load everything into excel (parse out the superfluous info) and then delete the extra entries.

Next time, and there will be a next time very soon (keep reading, even if you didn’t win!) I’ll make sure to factor in how much time each entry method will take me to track! lol

Good News – I’m Giving Away A Second iPad!

In case you didn’t win this time, you should know that this blog is turning 3 years old on July 23, 2010 and to celebrate the three year anniversary there will be another contest – which will include another iPad. So stick around for a few weeks to make sure you are kept in the loop!

And The Winner Is…

“Marianne” (last name omitted for privacy reasons) – entry # 2266.

Marianne has already been contacted by email. If your name is Marianne, please check your email (and junk mail folder, just in case).

This number was determined using Random.org’s random integer generator. Ballots were ordered as listed in the contest rules (first ballots were for comments, then email subscribers, then twitter followers, then retweets, and then facebook fans, and finally blog links.) The declaration of the winner is final, subject to the correct answering of the skill testing question and confirmation of full mailing address by 11:59pm EST on June 5th, 2010.

CONGRATULATIONS MARIANNE!

    Thanks Preet & Dor! What a great giveaway, for one of my favourite blogs. I'm definitely jumping for joy, which is a real trick considering how I'm having to sit on my hands to resist buying accessories, already! Ah, the curse of accessory creep. Thanks again, and good luck everyone with the next contest.
