I meant to do this last night, but fell asleep in front of a Hulu run of the latest Chuck episode, I think before the credits at the beginning even finished.
I won! You know one of those blog contests where a commenter is picked to receive a cool gift? Well they exist. I won a book on Library Hungry, very excited. I love Library Hungry’s take on books and while I don’t always agree with her in reviews (You can also check out what she has to say on goodreads- You don’t know what goodreads is? Get ye over there right now) I do often and in some genres more than others. I got to choose the book from a selection so I’m going for Fool by Christopher Moore. I’m in need of a bawdy tale.
I have a question though, for you. I see these contests on the big blogs, Soulemama etc, and they stimulate a huge response presumably because they have a huge readership, but then I see them on smaller blogs also stimulating a big response, but not others. Is this all about of readership OR type of readership? Have you ever entered a comment on blog posting in the hopes of winning a prize? I ran a book giveaway on TucsonMama back in October or November and was surprised by the limited response. (Note for those of you who don’t know me in real life I am a TucsonMama sidekick, not the very wonderfulTucsonMama.) I know the traffic TucsonMama gets and it is substantial so why a relatively low response? I guess that was more than one question. Alright, off with my hacking cough to work.
