... well... wait a minute, not so fast. I have things to say, before announcing the winners. First of all, this was my first contest, and I will admit, that it's not an easy win. After all, if you wanted to win, you had to commit to posting the same thing on your blog with the promise to send 5 prizes to other bloggers, who comment on your blog. Give that a little thought, and pretty soon you realize, you have no idea what to make or when to make it... because you have work, a house, kids, hobbies, and your day ends after 24 hours just like everyone else's.
Hence the rather, uh, low participation of my first ever contest. Or maybe nobody read that particular blog entry. But I choose to believe, that my reason number 1 was the real problem. :)
My Five Alive blog post has 8 comments. Two came from me, one from the Shady Lady, who, as part of the Inner Circle is excluded from ever being the winner of anything. She'll just have to come to me and ask, if she wants anything. Yep, that's how well I treat my friends. I take friend applications right here, if you feel, you are worthy and can handle it. ;)
I'm digressing. Back to the post. It just so happens, that there are exactly 5 more posts, only two of which have officially entered the contest. The plan was to choose 5 winners. FIVE!
And that is why I decided to announce all 5 of those commenters to be the winners. Sooo, if you see your name on the list below, I request that you get in touch with me by e-mail, so you can send me your names and addresses.
Congratulations to you, readers. And I promise, my next contest will be a much easier one to join. :)
