There is a little scavenger hunt and a giveaway wrapped up in it all, which I find so delightful.

    For most of us, winning this contest will be nigh on impossible. Your email arrived in my mailbox at around 4:40 Eastern Time this morning. I would have to go to 8 different blogs, watch the episode, get the answers to the 8 questions and then go to another blog and enter the answers by noon my time.
    Because I was working this morning, I didn’t have a chance to go to my personal email until 1 pm my time at which point the contest was over for an hour! I work from home but there are lots of people that either don’t have computer access or can’t check email at work. They will find out about this contest when they get home tonight. Other folks who are without computers at home have to get to a library or other public location to check their email.
    Unless there are very extenuating circumstances, no email-based contest should run for less that 48 hours and preferably for at least 3 days. That would give most people a reasonable chance to go through the steps and have time to enter the contest.
    I’m actually surprised that this came from you with such a limited timeframe. I also noticed that I’m the first to comment on it.

    Linda – I’m so sorry that my post reached you late. The post was published here on my site at 3:30 am Pacific time (6:30 am Eastern time) on December 18th, well before official 24 hour noon start date. If you use a reader that sends posts to your email that was delayed by a day I have no control over when those reach you.
