I wanted to share a few statistics with you before I announce the winners.
- I had over 454 comments.
- I had over 600 emails to read.
- I added over 45 new followers.
- The number of visitors on my site jumped from just under 10,000 to over 13,420.
- I had 1,280 entries from comments, bloggers who blogged about it, and friends that mentioned friends that blogged about it.
- I had quilters, knitters, scrapbookers, stampers, & crafters of every kind visit my blog.
- I had visitors from ALL over the World including USA, Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Hungary, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Phillipines, and Holland, just to name a few.
- Congratulations came in a few different languages. Thanks to my husband who speaks & understands Spanish/Portugese for translating the many greetings sent from Spain, Brazil, & Argentina.
I used microsoft excel to build a table and filled in all the important information like, name, blog, email, comment point, blogged about it points, friends mentioned your name points, and then I tallied up the points and assigned a number or a range of numbers if you had multiple points.
This is an example:
1 to 5
6 to 42
48 to 59
62 to 113
114 to 140
143 and so on. . . and so on all the way to 1,280.
Let's hear the drum roll please. . .
