Bike Winner Announced!

May 11, 2008 · 11 comments

My Fuji Bike Giveaway contest had more entrants than I expected, a total of 29 entrants with 13 of you getting an extra entry for giving the post a Stumble. Thank you to all the entrants! The total value of the prize package was almost $500, which is nothing to sneeze at. Pioneer Woman gives away $500 awards like they are tissue paper but for me this was a grand prize and it felt great to be given the chance to give it away to someone. Plus her contests usually have thousands of entries so your odds here were real good.

I did discover some weird things with Stumbleupon where someone’s stumble didn’t show on the review page for my post, but if I looked at their individual page their stumble showed. When someone told me they stumbled and I didn’t see it on the review page, I checked their personal page to verify. So, I suspect I may have missed a few of your extra entries if you didn’t provide me with your stumble id.

The interesting thing is, the winner only had one entry. And the winner was one of a few people who did not properly link to the contest post originally, but then changed it after I pointed out the requirement.

Think it was you?

I couldn’t get YouTube or Google Video to work with converting the video for some reason, so unfortunately I have to host it myself. Hopefully it will be viewable. There isn’t any sound this time because my microphone is broken but even if it wasn’t I probably wouldn’t have used audio because my nose is still all stuffed up!

Click here to view the video. If you won, send me your email address via my contact form and I will put Lipton in touch with you for fulfillment of your prize package.

Thank you to all the entrants and congratulations to the winner! I can’t wait to do this again some time.

A VERY deserving winner. She is so supportive of so many people.

I’m doing my drawing the same way but unfortunately, I won’t have it up as a fancy presentation like you did, I’m not that technically inclined :-)

Woo-hoo! I won! Er… Wait… Wow, this is embarrassing. I guess I didn’t.

Congratulations to the winner and more perhaps more importantly a pat on the back to you, John. I see a whopping four pound loss this week. Great job!
