Here Come The PRIZES…

by Susan

It’s PRIZE TIME!!!

Sorry we’re a couple hours late posting the winners, but it took me (Susan) about 6 hours to sort out all these prizes.

First, I randomly generated a set of around 100 numbers using random.org.

I then went through that list and took each number, found it’s match in the linky and then looked to see if there was a prize preference list either emailed to us or posted as a comment. If I found a prize preference list, I then looked down that list to find the first preferred prize that was still available. If the winner had not submitted a prize preference, I took a look at their blog to see whether or not they had children and then choose the next available prize that seemed a reasonably appropriate match. I did my best to match baby prizes with moms who have babies etc.

I was thrilled with how often I was able to give out prizes that were on people’s wish lists!!!

Most of the winners who submitted prize wish lists actually received something from their list. So I think it was a huge success.

I hope you all love your prizes! And for those who didn’t win this time, don’t worry… we’ve already got tons more contests lined up for the coming weeks and months.

BONUS PRIZE DRAW!!!

Here is another special giveaway that we’re going to give to a lucky member of our newsletter subscribers.

If you’re not a member, you can join for free now.

The winner of that draw will be announced March 23, 2007. (Please note that this is different than the FeedBlitz email subscription field you’ll find in the right column. The FeedBlitz email subscription will send you emails whenever we update our blog. If you are not already subscribed to our feed through Bloglines, etc., you’ll want to sign up for both features and stay connected.)

The winner will be able to choose from one of the following prizes from our store Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles.

Kids’ Chef Uniform
Big Wheel Ride on Toy
Musical Jewelry Box
Crosley Retro Wall Phone
or
a gift certificate for $30 to Amazon.com

(Canadian and International bloggers will only be eligible for the gift certificate.)

EVERYONE on our newsletter list is eligible for this prize draw. You do NOT need to be a blogger or post anything.

And no worries – we will not be clogging your email with tons of newsletters. Because we have been so busy, it has been months since our last newsletter. At best you will receive 6 newsletters a year, but you will receive notification of special events and contests at 5 Minutes for Mom.

And don’t forget to write a post next week linking to a few new bloggers you met at the party.

Note to those who offered prizes:
Please find the blog who won your prize and contact them directly through their blog to arrange shipping. If you have any difficulties reaching them, just contact us.

If there are any errors where an American gift was accidentally assigned to an International blogger, please let us know.

Note to all winners:
A nice idea is to thank the blogger who donated your prize on your blog. Link back to their site and share a little link love.

WOW! All those great blogs (and I’ve read LOTS of them!) won and deserved it. Not to say *I* wouldn’t have minded winning, but that’s another story entirely.

Guys, the party was fun and I intend on plowing through those 850+ blogs some more.
