in the last couple of months I have won a bunch of different challenges. It's wonderful to win, we all know that, and I have been blogging a while now and have quiet a few 'wins' under my belt so to speak.
I don't mean to sound arrogant or anything, just the way it is, because I enter a lot of challenges over the time, and you are bound to win some. It's great when you do, and often there is a prize attached to the win.
Now here comes the : Sad but true part.
Just recently I have been dissapointed in the way certain challenge blogs have treated their 'winner'.
Once you find out you won, you then contact the blog....right?
Yeah, did that.
They then send you an email back saying stuff like: congratulations, pick from these images or here is your prize attached, either a voucher or a digi stamp or what ever it may be. Right??
After the initial contact, I never heard from them again.....
Even after sending another email to check if they got it ok. Nothing.
So I check the email on the challenge blog, I am human, I make mistakes....nope, got it right.
Should I pester them again??? Give them a couple more days, maybe they are busy....sent email again.
Nothing. so that's it then....?? or is it.
What would you do???
Has this happenend to you? or just me?
Well I just had a bad run, it's happenend to me from three different blogs 3 times in a row.
I am just so dissapointed. Why run a challenge blog, and have sponsors that provide prizes, and then when it;s the winners right to receive that prize, you don't answer them back?
I have come across a bunch of challenge blogs where the blog had to re-draw the prize because the winner did not contact them...!!! Works both ways I guess.
Curious to know if this has happenend to others...
Let me know
