Giveaway & survey results & Link Luv
|January 5, 2017||Posted by Melinda under Uncategorized|
Congratulations to SailingSuz! You are the winner of the Training Journal Giveaway! (I sent you an email – I need some information so I can mail it to you).
How the winner was chosen for complete and utter transparency:
Yesterday I made a list on a piece of paper of all the email subscribers (there’s about 50 of you) and numbered from 1 to 49. I then had MathGoodies random number calculator generate a random number. That person won :).
I’m putting together the next giveaway details now and will post soon :). Wouldn’t it be fun to have one every month?
Thank you everyone who took the time to answer the three questions on the survey (Survey is now closed). Here’s what you had to say.
Overwhelmingly people want a book for the next giveaway. Sounds good to me! I *might* have a sponsored giveaway coming up but a book (or a multiple book package) giveaway will definitely make an appearance soon.
This is the one that surprised me the most. The “other” was just a comment telling me that I should really really REALLY keep the posts as is. This is an example of where you guys make a huge difference because I was darn close to removing a lot of the past content. Based on this response I’ll leave everything…but try to make it more accessible. I created this page (doesn’t show up properly on the mobile version of the site yet), and I’m working on categorizing and tagging most posts so it’s easier to wade through them. I’m also going to work on making some of the categories more friendly to browse instead of just a list of posts on a page. It requires me to make custom page templates in wordpress which requires several hours in a chunk to do and some nail biting as I “break” stuff and drink copious amounts of coffee to calm my nerves.
Right now those of you subscribed via email are getting new posts daily. Setting up a daily AND a weekly option is going to take some time. Once I get caught up on my posts, I’ll try to remember work on this, that way those of you that don’t want to be bombarded by blog posts in your email box have the option to get a nice little summary every week.
Those of you that aren’t on the Newsletter list or facebook may have noticed that this month’s Link Luv wasn’t posted on the blog! From now on it will be sent as a Newsletter. I’ll link it to the facebook page, and I’ll put a link in each month’s IRL. Here’s January’s Link Luv if you missed it.
