I like giveways. Not that I've ever won one. But, if it's not to demanding, I enter. Some of them are very demanding in their requirements. I don't enter those. Why? Well, because I'm lazy. And I want to win something simply because my name is in the pot, not because I jumped through hoops to get there. I want to feel like it's a real win, and not something earned. Does that make sense?
I've entered several giveaways recently, but only the ones I REALLY want to win. And once I even completed all the steps in a multiple requirement contest. Now, I have to admit, that every time you do a thing on the list, your name is entered again, but I still feel that once should be enough. Everyone get one shot, your name in the pot just because you said "yep, I want that too." It is a giveaway right?
I can understand some of why folks have all the extra chances at entering your name. I mean, you wind up following blogs you didn't know about and come upon new ideas sometimes. But some of the time, you really aren't that into the other blogs, and just want that one thing they are giving away.
One day, maybe I'll win something. But, probably not unless I'm willing to spend 30 minutes finding the other blogs, posting on them, posting on the original blog, and posting on my own....makes me tired just thinking about it....
