Fluff Fridays: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I have been planning to post about this since a few weeks ago, but it was until the last couple of giveaways, that I realized the need to do this.

PhotobucketQ: Is it okay for me to leave multiple comments on the same day if I'm a subscriber, follower, Facebook fan, etc.? You say only one comment per day.
A: You can only leave one comment per day (which is your contest entry) if you answer the question that was asked. You can come back to our blog and answer that same question each day and accumulate additional entries as well. Posts like: "This is my comment from today " and not answering the question, would not be allowed. You also can get extra entries by doing things like becoming a follower, subscriber, etc (see rules on the Fluff Friday post for each week) and leaving us a comment to tell us about what you did. You can leave those additional comments only one time during the entire giveaway. Each comment equals one entry. Each entry is assigned a number and the winner is selected with an online number generator.

PhotobucketQ: May I leave a single comment answering the question that is asked and in that same comment also say that I'm a follower, subscriber, Facebook fan, etc?
A: No, you need to leave one comment for each activity that you do because each comment is assigned a number and I select a random number as the winner. The more numbers you accumulate the better chances are that you'll win.

Photobucket Q: What does being a "follower" entail? Do we just say we are a follower if we read your blog on a regular basis or do we have to do something to be an actual follower?
A: Being a follower means that you have formally signed up as a follower of the blog. To do this, please click on the "Cloth Diaper Lovers - Follow this Blog" link located on the right sidebar of the blog and become a follower. If you have a blog profile, it will show on our blog that you're a follower of our blog.

Photobucket Q: I posted a comment but it didn't show up on the site. Did I do something wrong?
A: I approve each and every comment before it goes live on the site. I try to approve comments as they come in but there are times when it may take me a bit longer to approve. Please note that not all comments are approved. This usually happens when a person posted the same message twice or did not abide by the giveaway's rules. Check the blog in 24 hours to see if your comment is there. If not feel free to contact us so we can figure out what happened.

Photobucket Q: I already won one of the giveaways. May I participate again?
A: Yes!! We also have special treats that only winners are eligible to win – so the more you win the more special treats you may get too!

Photobucket Q: I have a suggestion for a giveaway. Who can I send my suggestion to?
A: You can contact us by clicking on the "Contact the Whisperer" button on the left sidebar. We love getting suggestions – thank you!!

Photobucket Q: Who is eligible to participate in the contests?
A: Any one with an email address and who lives in the US or Canada. Canadian winners would just have to pay shipping costs.

THERE IS MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PhotobucketShare the love for diapers and bring a friend!!!!

All you have to do is to bring a FRIEND to become a follower!!!You need to tell your friend that after she becomes a follower of the blog she needs to answer the question of the giveaway PLUS she needs to say that you invited her.

After you make sure your friend becomes a follower AND the comment on the giveaway with your name is approved and posted, then you can post a comment telling us about your friend. Please note that she has to be a NEW commenter on the blog to count.

And your HUSBAND doesnt count!!! (Sorry if you were already calling him to post a comment... LOL)

Thank you for clearing things up! I think in the past I didn't quite understand the "one post a day" rule and was sometimes not completely answering the question each day. Thanks for setting things straight!

the momma said...

Thank you for clarifying! And now, I get an extra comment! Yippee!

Cecile said...

Thank you for this post! I'm pretty new to the Fluff Fridays and this answers all my questions!

Erika said...

Thanks for posting those FAQ's. I have made a few mistakes (by not answering the questions everytime)....not anymore :)

Angela said...

Thank you so much for the clarification. That helps out a ton!

Jess said...

THANK YOU, Mama!!!!! lol i was kinda embarrassed to sit & make a comment that im a follower/subscriber/have the button/answer the ? everytime but now IDC ;)

Serena said...

I'm quite certain there are a LOT of people who will benefit from the clarification... that's not to say you weren't clear when you initially posted the rules - but I think oftentimes people misinterpret what the rules are (probably out of sheer excitement about the giveaway/contest)!

I no longer participate in the contests due to a conflict of interest... however, do you think I could still post my responses - and if by chance my comment is the winning number - you can pick another winner? Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask! =)

Momto3LittleFlowers said...

Serena: I understand what you mean, however, if you answer questions, other people that are new will think is fine to answer questions, and will do it themselves too.... Have in mind that there will be other posts related to the products in the giveaway during the week, so you can answer those questions in any of those other posts... I normally email the person or go to her blog letting her know that I answered her in another post.... :)

Thanks for your help!

Lisa said...

Thanks for the FAQ. This is all new to me...

Danielle said...

Thanks for the FAQ's. I am new to this, but I added myself as a facebook fan and a follower of the blog!

Jessica said...

I would make the pattern olive green and brown modern, rounded overlapping squares.

Momma K9 said...

I guess I'm not understanding...once I answer the question then I've reached my comment limit for the day? So, the next day I can comment that I'm a fb fan or I subscribe? Also, my google acct is not the same email I have with fb, does that matter? Thanks!

Katie L. said...

You say that you get one extra comment for each comment you make on TCDW page. Does this also count for Facebook discussions or advertising in a forum somewhere? Do you get one comment for each comment that you make?

Katie L. said...

(sorry, another question)

posting on your Facebook wall doesn't count as a discussion entry, does it?

kkyc816 said...

what is i reviewed a product last week. can it count for this week's fluff friday?

Samantha Marie said...

thanks! this was very helpful!!

Angie said...

I feel really dumb, but I am still a little confused- does this mean I can answer the fluff friday question once a day, every day?
