So I was wondering where all the comments were coming from. People that I had no clue as to who they were began leaving comments on that particular post.
Maybe they are from the Blog Frog community? I know people follow me that way, although I will admit, I don't understand how the whole thing works. I just know I get an email every once in a while telling me so and so is now following me on Blog Frog.
So I decided to look into it by checking my Blogger stats. I discovered that a great deal of traffic was coming from a contest blog. So I clicked on the link and found that she had my giveaway listed in a post. Now I'm not faulting the person in charge of the blog. She's just doing what she wants and if she wants to spend her days searching the blog world for giveaways, then so be it. I would have preferred her asking my permission first though.
However, my giveaway
So I contacted the blog owner and asked to have my giveaway entry removed, which has now been done. But it has just taken all the fun out of having a giveaway in the first place.
Sure I got a couple more followers, but if you are only following me because you think I might give more stuff away in the future, you can unfollow me right now. That's not what this blog is all about.
I will follow through with this giveaway. I said I would do it and I will. I'm just bummed that some contest junkies got involved.
