Contests and giveaway encounters

I am just wondering what your thoughts are on the many different give aways and contests out there. I have entered several and certainly appreciate the opportunity to do so. I have found however, that many of the contests are slow to post the winners and with some, I never am able to find a post of the winners. I saw one today that made a serious, yet understandable, mistake when notifying the winner. It worked out in the end thanks to one of the two generous winners who gave a portion of her winnings to the one who was mis notified.

 I just wonder if these give aways are worth the effort? Do you sign up for as many as you can? I have won two quilting books, a journal, and one other prize and was so excited to win each time. Other times, like others are, I am disappointed. I know it is all in fun, I guess I just want to know others thoughts on this subject. BTW, good luck if you sign up for these, and my comdolences to those who don't seem to be "lucky". We are all winners by focusing on the friendships we have built through QCA and other sites. Thanks ahead of time for your comments and suggestions. and as always, Hugs!

I've never won a thing. It's like a lottery...you don't have a chance to win if you don't enter. It's a gamble. I'm not a gambler really. Not to say I haven't entered to win fabric since I am an admitted fabriholic. I go in expecting not to win. Think of the shock if I were to win!!!
