I am super excited to announce the winner of my New year / Valentine’s day giveaway 🙂
This giveaway had quite a lot of entries and I am really pleased about it. Before I go ahead with announcing the winner, please note three points:
1) Anyone who used multiple email accounts to enter into the giveaway, were disqualified. It’s easy for me to see that it’s the same person commenting over and over. Sorry, but it’s not easy to fool me.
2) Anyone who shared my giveaway on Twitter / Facebook were given an extra entry. But positivity always gets rewarded on my blog. So, in addition to those extra entries, anyone who congratulated the winner of my last giveaway, were given an extra entry too. Only 2 qualified for that. It’s Sarita Ramchandani and Coral Crue 🙂
3) Though I had asked for direct links to shares on Twitter / Facebook, I was not given that by certain persons. So I put in some extra effort to verify it indeed was done. Any persons who claimed they had shared the link but I couldn’t verify it, were not given an extra entry. Also one person didn’t even follow the basic rule to get into the giveaway, which resulted in being disqualified.
Onto the winner announcement, all names were fed into the Fruit Machine, which is a random name picker. Please note all my giveaways are random, unless otherwise mentioned. Here is a screen shot (not all names are visible in one screen shot. So don’t think I didn’t put your name).
And the winner is!!
Congratulations Coral!!. I am so glad the random name picker picked your name because you are indeed a loyal supporter of mine.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest from the very same email you are using to follow me. Everyone else, stay tuned for more interesting posts and giveaways. Please don’t be discouraged that you didn’t win this time.
Please take a moment to congratulate the winner. No negative comments please, because the winner could easily have been you and would you like it one bit if others become negative about it?
