Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great day. I am hosting my first blog giveaway on the post below. ;) Let me tell you I have so much more respect for fellow bloggers that host and run multiple giveaways. I never knew how much went into one and the tracking and checking that goes into them . With that being said as happy as I am to be hosting this, I am also sadden by the amount of dishonest entries I have come across in just the 1st hour of posting the giveaway. I don't know if all bloggers go thru and check the entries for "following" the rules or not. I did and was really sad to see 14 entries that were put down that they did the required task but when I checked they had in fact not done it.
I am far from perfect but I can say I have never entered a giveaway and "lied" about a task to get the entry. There is no point to do this. I set it up so you can pick and choose what you want to do, as do most giveaway host. If you don't want to do the task than don't do it. But why lie and say you did it? It makes me wonder if the time and effort and expense of the giveaway is worth it, if people are going to be dishonest. Am I wrong to feel this way?
I just needed to vent and now I will get off the bubble before I burst it.
I hope you all enter the giveaway and that you all enjoy the chance to win a gift certificate from me. Please feel free to share the giveaway on your page and with friends and family. I am really excited to see who wins. Good luck everyone and thank you for entering.
