Boo hoo over what you missed:
This 6-day event included 12 giveaways with over 500 entries and a total of 24 winners.
Therefore, please refrain from contacting me to inquire about the results.
Here’s what happens now:
After collecting and organizing the entries for each of the twelve drawings, I contact the winners. If you are one of the randomly selected winners, I will use the email address you provided to notify you. I am not responsible for mistyped address or mistakes on your part. You will have 48 hours from the time it is sent to respond to this e-mail.
With so many giveaways it is crucial to maintain this strict time frame. If I don’t hear from you in the allotted time, I will move on to the next person drawn. No exceptions! Stay close to your email over the next week. I would hate for a winner to miss out on a prize.
Join me in saying thanks to our giveaway sponsors:
- Tell sponsors that you saw or discovered them on DA
- Thank them for supporting me
- Choose them when making purchases
My thanks to you:
Readers are what make Dance Advantage special. Without readers, this is just another of the thousands of sites scattered across the blogosphere. The Giving Thanks Giveaway is one way I can use whatever position I’ve secured to say thank you. I wish I were like Oprah and could give everyone a prize.
Of course, information and content is given away at Dance Advantage all the time. If you have landed here and seen only the giveaway, you haven’t seen the core of Dance Advantage. I encourage you to have a look around in the archives. More goes into a site like Dance Advantage than you may realize and I manage all editorial, promotional, and technical elements myself. So, as I scanned the giveaway comments and read your thoughtful words or thanks regarding what I do here, it was a reminder of why I care to keep going.
Your encouragement means the world to me. You are why I want to keep learning; why I want Dance Advantage to grow and get better; why I want to make it a valuable resource in the dance community.
You can help Dance Advantage grow and improve:
If you find the material at Dance Advantage useful, tell at least one friend or student or parent or teacher!
If you read something that helps you, or that you can add to, or even that you disagree with, comment!
If you want to read regularly, or be on the inside of the information here, subscribe!
If you want me to keep thinking big, remember to say thanks to giveaway and advertising sponsors.
Your actions and choices, without a doubt, support this site and the people (my family included) behind it, as directly as any donation.
I hope to bring YOU good news this week! Best of luck.
