When Giveaways Go Bad

I am appreciative of my readers and visitors. I know I don't post as often as I used to but when I post a deal I find, I apply for it too, so I know exactly what it asks for and I know it works. When I post about life, or wordless Wednesday, I try to be real about who I am, or try to give advice in a top ten. When I'm able to host a giveaway, I feel honored to be able to reward someone who comes to my blog with a gift. Something to remember KreativeKaring by. I would never fake a giveaway, or lie to get readers and followers.

I had someone tweet me recently saying they never got their prize from a giveaway back in April. While I do feel awful about it, I do want to mention that I tweeted, messaged, and emailed this person about it and waited weeks before giving it away to someone else.

To anyone entering in giveaways - some friendly advice: Keep track of all the giveaways you entered in. That way, if an email gets lost in the junk folder, or maybe the giveaway didn't say they were going to email the winner, it's always good to keep track of it all. After all, you're spending your time entering in each of them anyways. Also, don't forget to check your spam folder!

To any bloggers who have had the opportunity to host giveaways, 

  • Any scary angry giveaway stories?
 Again I do apologize if anyone has missed out on a prize because of a miss-communication, but it does happen.
