As many of you know, I was out of town when I reached 1,000 followers. I'm now home and planned to choose a winner today. But it has become somewhat of a daunting task to check all 300+ comments to make sure the person that commented is a blog follower! And, in going through the comments, I've noticed some people have commented more than once and some people commented by replying to someone else's comment. That makes it hard to use random.org to pick a number and then find the comment that number represents.
So, I'll be going through the comments, verifying the person is following my blog and writing the names on pieces of paper. Once that is completed, I'll draw from all the names for a winner. Check back on June 1 as I promise to have all of the verification done by then and will post the winner. The winner will then have one week to claim their prize.
*Sorry to delay choosing the winner but I want to make sure the winner actually followed the rules of the giveaway!
