This post is to explain more fully my challenges. I am probably one of a very few who notifies that winner of the random-generated drawing for my challenges. I feel that if you can take time to enter, I can take time to notify you that you won. This is usually done by e-mail if your e-mail is listed on your blog. If I can't find your e-mail on your blog, I will let you know in the "comments" section that you have won.
In return (this is the only thing I ask of you), I ask that you send me an e-mail with your full name so I can put it under your entry on my sidebar and so I can notify the sponsor. A first name or nickname will not do. I can't tell my sponsor that a "Ann" or "Shu-la" won. I need the whole name. I try to notify the winner on Tuesday following the end of the challenge. I expect a reply within 4 or 5 days. I realize that people get sick, go out of town or just don't look at their blog everyday.
I hope the above is not expecting too much. I do appreciate all the entries I have been receiving this past year and hope more of you will enter my challenges.
