Is it just me ?

Honest I really don't want to complain, but this has been bugging me for a bit. I'm new to the blog craft world and let me tell you I love it ! I really spend so much time on it ... but here comes the problem I have ok everyone has all this blog candy, love it and they use the random org thing to pick the winner (I would do this too )totally fair, but then there are all these challenges I love a good challenge as much as the next person, I get all excited I read what they want all careful and I plan and I work and work really hard to make it my best and submit it and wait and wait and wait always checking, and don't win so its what did I not do ? I check out the competition some are really great better than mine some not so much ( I know all my opinion ) some dont even follow what the challenge is about. And then they pick the winner and sometimes I think Wow what a great idea , card , lot of time put into it and I'm glad they won then sometimes I think what the heck were they even thinking this was thrown together and dosent even follow whats going on. Oh they used random org to pick the winner, so is this really a challenge or is it just post as much stuff as you can and hope you are lucky enough to get picked. I don't know maybe its just me . But if anyone knows of good sites where the winner is picked by the work let me know Id like to enter some. Thanks


  1. Hi Angie!
    Yep, I totally agree with you. Most, if not all challenges & comments to "win", I've come across are always picked w/that random thing. I usually submit my "stuff" anyway. It sure doesn't acknowledge your talent &/or hard work, but I figure it at least gets displayed for others to see. I am totally new to the side of the blogging world of having my own blog, but have followed Robyn @ My Pink Stamper for about a year& have found some REALLY nice people to be "friends" with. Thank you so much for visiting me & I have become your newest follower. Keep up the good work, you do awesome work that you should be proud of! I'll be back to see more. (How's that for a "pat on the back"?)
    God Bless & Hugs from R.I.,
    P.S. Thanx also for having the guts to express your opinion! I'm sure there are others out there that won't admit they feel the same.

  2. I don't know any like that. I have never done a challenge myself but, I do feel the same way. If random is going to be used then why post what you need to do and not judge by that? Good luck with your next one! Hugs!!!!

  3. yeah,,,i'm with you. I said to myself that when i start challenges on my blog i'm going to pick the ones i like best, to my eye...randomly for blog hops though is all you can do.

  4. I know what you mean ... I keep telling myself I am going to start to participate in challenges, but the whole random winner thing stops me. There are a couple of challenge blogs I am going to use just as idea jumping off points but not submit my work - I went back through the archives of and made the first challenge, so I have a looong way to go.

  5. I know what you mean. I enter a lot of challenges and hardly ever win with I am just not that lucky. I still enter though, because there are some great prizes that I 'might' win, lol

    Just became a new follower..Would love it if you decided to follow my blog.

  7. I agree with you! They have a challenge and then pick a random winner- I don't get it either. Maybe there is so much work to judge that they just pick someone by since it is not as time consuming. Anyway...I am a new follower as you are following my blog at Thank you!
