Comments, Comments, Comments!

I hope you all have been enjoying the contests over the last few weeks! Saturday is the Read-A-Thon! I will be participating in the read-a-thon by reading all day. No clue which books I'm going to read yet. Probably just randomly grab books off my shelf that look good!

What time (central time) on Saturday should I start the contests? What time should they end? 10 PM? 11 PM? Midnight? Remember multiple ones will be posting all day!!! I might make a few of them into forms so less people to have to contact me. We'll see. People have not been claiming their prizes very well (look at the winners post, did you win this week??)

Will you be checking the site to enter? Every few hours, whenever you take a food break, once a day?

Will you be participating by reading all day? Comments, suggestions?

Do you mind if I do some of the contests in forms? This is only so theres not as many people who will have to contact me as contests end. I announce winners, and just email donaters their address. Pretty simple. What do you think? Some of you have probably noticed I've already had to draw new winners due to people not claiming prizes!

I'll be checking as much as possible, reading as much as my 3 year old will let me and I love forms!

I won't be able to participate in the read-a-thon & will be out @ work for most of the day (I'll have a break in there, though)... so hopefully I'll still be able to get to all the contests - I will be checking your blog as often as I can. : )

As for forms vs. comments - since you simply ask us to leave contact info, I don't know that either is particularly preferred by me, however, I'd also get right back to you if I won, so you wouldn't have to jump through hoops to get my prize to me. : D

Honestly, my reader is kind of overwhelming so I don't check your site everyday. Please consider added an e-mail subscription option through Feedburn to your website. It is very easy to install.

Thanks

I love forms for contests. I have never had to chose a second winner since I started using them.

I'll probably be checking my reader for blog updates every few hours.

I love that you have gone the simple route for contests. One person, one entry.
