Just to let you know, I’ve drawn 2 random numbers (see below) using Random.com’s integer picker and emailed the winners. While the numbers don’t mean anything to you now, they meant something to me when I had to count down through my email box. Each winner has 48 hours to claim their prize, even if they already gave me their mailing info. If they don’t get back to me by 8:30pm EST on Saturday, I’ll redraw their prize.
As a behind-the-scenes look, when I received each of the 36 entries, I tagged it with the label “freebookentry” in Gmail (see how I use Gmail with Cleverdude.com) and archived it. That way, all the entries were in their own folder, separate from my other emails. When I drew the numbers, I just counted down through the emails until I reached that number.
That was probably a boring paragraph, but I like to stay transparent to my readers so you all know I’m being honest here. And here are the winning numbers:
