I started posting these to OLS individually, but the next time I refreshed the page there were over 350 giveaways, and counting! New participating blogs are being continually added.

If you're "into" the blog giveaways where you have to submit a comment, here's the main page link for the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival Winter '08 Edition. All will end sometime between Feb. 1-3:

I don't usually enter these types..but with a list like that, it was simple (I got to about 100 and had to stop for awhile).

I managed to get through 856 of these. Now all I have to do is remember to check back to see if they have any more. I think I've finally gone off the sweeper deep end! LOL

I entered for the prizes I was interest in probably 1/2 of them and I did get a winning email of a book win. A lot of the prizes were for babies and youg kids which I have none. I bookmarked the page as she seems to have weekly giveways so I will check back.

For those that win I would LOVE to know what you posted

There were MANY that asked questions that you were to post the answer - and then people would just say Thanks for the contest.

So more a curiosity to me than anything.

I only had the time/patience to enter about 25

Well, hopefully they treated people who didn't read the rules the same way this lady did, ROFL. :laugh:

That is PRICELESS and EXACTLY what I was thinking

I am SOOOOO very glad that the gal followed through with the instructions.

I have my moments........... but to see repeated non-compliant posts......... oh just chalk it up to my pet peeve of the day :rolleyes2

I won a leopard print bag from http://allthewhatnots.blogspot.com/
apple pie tarts from http://ourlifewith3girls.blogspot.com/
tooth fairy pillow from http://ourlittleclan.blogspot.com/
and a book from
http://bethriftylikeus.blogspot.com/ - I actually did'nt think I'd win anything, because so many people entered these giveaways. :)

Well, I made sure I read all the instructions, but I still didn't win anything. The one thing I had a problem with was time!!! I got a bit of a late start so I tried to bookmark the ones that ended later, but there were so darned many it was frustrating. I wish I had found it sooner or that they would have listed them by expiration. I know they couldn't do that but it sure would have been nice.
I definitely found a lot of nice sites I'll be going back to again.

I'm not sure how many I entered, probably fewer than 100. I really just entered for bath stuff and starbucks/itunes/amazon GCs, plus a couple of prints/pictures. Nothing yet! I really enjoyed it though, found several interesting sites and can't wait until they do it again. :encore:

I thought my odds were good considering I followed every rule to the best of my ability but only won three. It was a customized box of fruit roll-ups for sharing my Valentine's story. Also won a customized card and a bottle of Hermes perfume(it was more who asked for it first though). I entered over 600 of them and enjoyed many of the blogs. I probably won't do it again next year, thought the odds were good until I saw 1,000 people entered for a $10 Starbucks Card.

I entered about 350 - had a really boring work day! Won nada! Saw a lot of the same names on the winner lists though. I'm jealous.

I won three of the Bloggy carnival sweeps. I though the odd were pretty good. (Most of them. Some of the popular blogs had 1200 or more entries. Many had less than 100 entries.) I probably entered about 300 or 400. (Spent way too much time on it! But I did find some blogs that I'd like to visit again.)

I won: 3 hand made bracelets
2 (new in package) exercise DVDs
$5 Starbucks gift card.

Plus, a very cool thing about the blog giveaways. Since they are put on by "mere humans" rather than judging authorities, I received 2 of the prizes within a week of entering. I am still waiting for prizes I "won" months ago.
