This giveaway is now closed.
And I said I would draw a winner during the second week in December? And that was two months ago?
It turns out that right after I made that little announcement and over 200 of you became a fan of Smockity Frocks on Facebook, I became aware that Facebook made a little announcement of their own about a brand new policy. The most pertinent part of the announcement to me was that a $10,000 fine would be administered to anyone holding drawings in which the winner is chosen exclusively from Facebook fans!
Since I don't have $10,000 lying around (and by the way, if you do I would love to discuss a little financial matter with you because that it the precise total we now owe to two different hospitals) I thought better of holding the drawing I had promised.
My problem then became ... what to do. I mean I said I was holding a giveaway, only I didn't want that giveaway to include $10,000 I don't have. But I also don't want to go back on my word.
So, while I was at the Blissdom blogging conference, during a Q & A session, I asked about my predicament. I was advised that the fine was to be taken seriously and I should definitely make alternate plans.
Thanks to all of you who became Facebook fans of Smockity Frocks, and I am sorry that I am not going to be able to fulfill my promise to draw a name from that list.
Do not dismay, though! I have come up with an alternate plan!
And now for the moment you've been waiting for: The New and Revised Giveaway Initiative!
