-Rafflecopter- Giveaways Annoucement

Starting this month I will be hosting some of my giveaways using Rafflecopter. I had done a lot of research and read up on a lot of reviews. Some people seem to really love it while others absolutely hates it -- I found it rather interesting that people have such strong feelings about it. After reading all about Rafflecopter, I though I would try it out. Mind you, I am not jumping in with both feet. I am just testing the water for now. I don't know if it will be harder or easier for me to host giveaways this way.

In any case, as I have mentioned earlier, I will be hosting some of my giveaways using Rafflecopter for a couple of months. I am going to try it out and decide if I want to continue using it or if I am going to wait until Rafflecopter becomes a more mature application -- since one of the biggest complaint I heard so far was that it is rather buggy at this point. While I was inputting my giveaway entry information and testing it out for the first time, Rafflecopter website actually stopped working because it was overloaded. I must admit that it did not leave a good first impression for me. But, I am still willing to try it out. Who knows, I might actually love it in the end. Anyhow, I am inviting my readers to go on this adventure with me. I think some of you already tried it elsewhere too.

I love to hear what you think of it after trying it out here. Please feel free to either leave me a comment here or send me an email to let me know what you think of Rafflecopter. If there is any issues with my Rafflecopter giveaways, please email me and let me know-- since I am new at using this application, I am learning as I go along and I can use all of the help I can get :).

Thank you everyone!

I have used this on a few other site. It has it's good and bad parts. First I have noticed that sites (like yours) that let you have an extra entry for every giveaway you enter ( WHICH I LOVE!!) don't leave enough entries slots so you don't get all of the ones you would have gotten. That in turns decreases the amount of entries. which for some is good and others bad.

Why would anyone hate it?? I LOVE it!!

I am undecided at this point... it would be easier than scrolling up and down while filling out requirements (The requirements are fine.. it is just the scrolling) The ONLY issue that I have had with someone's Rafflecopter was that I could not do the extra entries until I did their #3, even after doing the "required" entry. Also.. just to let you know that ..say I can do five entries for adding your button.. the rafflecopter will not let you re-enter duplicate entries... I got around it by adding some (...).

I don't know how it is to host through Rafflecopter, but it is SO much easier to enter giveaways with Rafflecopter. It cuts down the time to enter so much.

We are on the same wavelength! I started using RAfflecopter on September 1, as well. It is slightly easier for me as a blogger, but not unbelievably easier. I haven't heard any complaints from readers so far. The real test will come when it is time to draw the first winner!
