Comment Contest


Well I thought I mentioned this in one of my posts...but I'm not finding it :P So it's a good thing I decided to do a mid-month update! I'm apparently spacey sometmes...

Anyway, I decided that along with working to respond to the comments I get, I wanted to reward my commentators. So each month I'm going to do a contest! I've been keeping track of all comments left this month so far, and it's been a lot of fun to see who's commenting and how often! 

So what will you win? This is the part I KNOW I hadn't decided on :) 

1st place: $15 gift certificate to my shop! Plus I'll mention you on the blog w/ a link.
2nd place: $5 gift certificate to my shop! Plus I'll mention you on the blog w/ a link.
3rd place: A mention on the blog with a link :)

Yes, there already is one person in the lead, but there are several people who are following up and fighting for first and second! And if you haven't been keeping up with my posts your welcome to do some back reading and leave some comments. :) Please say more than "cool" though ok? Thanks!

Now, because I'm geeky, here's a few stats from the month so far :)

~ Top Commentator currently has 9 comments.
~ I've had a total of 35 different people leave comments.
~ There has been a total of 70 comments! 
*all numbers prior to posting this post :)

I'm kinda geeking out and wondering what the numbers will look like by the end of the month :) I love interacting with all of you guys and I look forward to getting to know each one of you better! I'm also really excited about giving out the prizes :)

That's a beautiful piece at the top of the post. It definitely has me yearning to break out my clay this afternoon. You guys have to stop this - so far, Paige (LenoxKnits) has me wanting to learn how to knit, you have me wanting to play with clay and get some jewelry made, and another friend has me dying to break out my mixed media stuff. Waaah I wanna do it all! lol

This is a great idea...I'm going to have to check out old posts. I've read them, but don't necessarily comment on them. Thanks for the "push" to be more active! :)

What a fun contest idea. Makes me want to do one too. I really like the "Trust your Heart" piece you are featuring and I'm not usually a heart person. I believe in that sentiment!

Meghann said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! Good idea with the contest - doesn't it make you feel all warm and tingly to know so many people read and love your blog? Best of luck!

I like the "Trust your Heart".

But, the contest is even better.

A contest seems like a great idea, Ruthie!! Thanks for leaving a comment on my Treasure Hunt blog.

What a fun contest! It's going to be fun to see the results - fingers crossed that I place!

Vanessa said...

Great contest!!

Stormy Designs said...

Here I am, catching up on your blog, and I see this gorgeous heart. I too would love to be able to get into my clay, it has inspired me. But I have to go to work, sigh....
I love your contest idea and may do something similar with my blog. Will have to check out the numbers on my blog. Can't wait to see your results.

Great idea, and a way to get us coming back to visit!

Geeky contest? Hardly!!! There is always something to a contest and this idea is one I have never come across...ingenuity at work again!

This is very generous of you!
