I am fairly new to the blogging community and have a quick question. I have been very fortunate to win 3 giveaways. Is it proper etiquette to recognize the bloggers I won the giveaways from after the fact in my own blog? I always post their contests on my page for them while they are running the giveaway... Do I need to do more?
In my opinion, sending a thank you email is absolutely necessary. Posting about it on your blog isn't a must, but it's oh-so-appreciated... plus it's good karma! What you're doing sounds good to me :) If only every winner was that nice!
I think it's a great idea to post a public shout out on your blog. After all, a lot of times the contests are ways for bloggers to gain more traffic on their site, so if you post about their blog it's helping them out even more.
I think it sure doesn't hurt to give recognition on you blog.
On another note, I've tried to leave a few comments on your blog tonight and I' mnot able to accessthe comment page.
Big Fry has the same Cars chair as your son and I love the pic of him in the bath with his huge blue eyes!
