I want to THANK all of YOU for entering my Charmed Gift Bag Giveaway.
The response was phenomenal.
Here are the giveaway statistics just because it's fun.
Record number of comments on Moda Bake Shop as of this morning was 205! Wow! I was just hoping to break their record (at the time) of 91. I think this giveaway also increased quilter's awareness that Moda Bake Shop existed. Several people commented that it was their first time visiting the Bake Shop. So, this giveaway was a great way to increase their exposure as well as mine. Thanks for your help!
I had 181 comments but, my biggest giveaway generated 462 comments. That particular giveaway dominated my life for a week reading email after email and I learned a lot about what would work better for my next giveaway. That's how I developed my email template. With the information you send me I make a spreadsheet and create a number spread like 1-22 or 23-30 or 100-107 (just as an example) for each person that entered based on how many numbers you earned and then I used the Random Number Generator to pick two numbers. It has worked really well for me and keeps my giveaways manageable.
The total number of entires was a 171 bloggers/readers for a total of 2,560 entry points. With the majority of entrants earning 12 to 22 points. What a wonderful response. Thanks again!!
My followers increased from about 188 to 299. Thanks everyone for even wanting to follow me. It's a lot of fun and I look forward to checking out more of your blogs. It will take me a bit of time but I will get there. I appreciate all of you and hope you enjoyed this giveaway. I wish I could personally make a bag for everyone but that would be nearly impossible but, you do have a free pattern to make as many as you want and that is my GIFT to you. I go back to full-time work in just 20 days (less than 3 weeks). I just can't believe my summer is nearly over. School starts on August 20th.
I'm headed to our cities parade here in a few minutes so I will end with announcing the winners of this giveaway. The response was so much more than I expected so I'm going to pick two winners.
