Giveaway Q&A

Everybody likes free fluff, right?  Well, on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer, we like to give fluff away!  There are the "Fluff Friday" giveaways every Friday, and there are the random "30 Minutes of Fluff" giveaways.  It's always fun to enter for your chance to win, but if you're not sure HOW to enter, it kind of takes the fun out of it!  Well, we're here to help!

Q:  Where in the world do I post my entry?
A:  Right here on the blog!  When the Friday or 30-minute giveaways post, there will be a number of ways to enter listed.  There will be a "Post a Comment" button for you to click on- if there are already numerous entries, you may have to scroll down to find it all the way at the bottom.  If there are no entries, sometimes it will say "0 Comments", and that's what you'll want to click on.  When you click on these, a new page will come up with a box for you to write your entry in.  It will say, "Leave your comment".  An example comment may be, "I'm a fan on Facebook, my screen name is _____ _______."  Then you need to sign in with a Google account (it's free to sign up if you don't already have one).  Submit your comment, and then go back and post your next comment.

Q:  But wait.... Don't I enter on the Facebook DiaperShops or Cloth Diaper Whisperer pages?  It says to become a fan and leave a comment...
A:  Become a fan of the pages, yes, but still leave your comments here, on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer giveaway page- we can't take entries on the Facebook pages.  Entries are ONLY taken on the blog.

Q:  Okay, I posted, and I think I did it right, but my comment isn't showing up?
A:  We have to go through each entry manually to weed out any that show your email address.

Q:  Huh?  Don't you need my email address if I win?
A:  You must have your Blogger profile accessible to be able to win.  But it is the responsibility of the winner to contact us to claim your prize.

Q:  There are a bunch of options for entering... can I enter more than once?
A:  Yes!  You may use each of the options for entering!

Q:  Okay, wait.... where do I enter again?  Do I respond to the post on Facebook?
A:  Nope, we love to hear from you on Facebook, but only entries posted directly on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog will be counted.

I hope this answered all of the questions you may have had about the giveaways!  Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy to enter.  Practice on the Friday giveaways, since those are around for a week.  That way you'll be a quick-fire for the "30 minutes of fluff" giveaways.  Good luck everyone!  :)
