Help Me Test Rafflecopter! 50 Shutterfly Cards #Giveaway Closed

If you’ve been a follower and giveaway enterer of mine for awhile, then you know I’ve tried a few different methods of running my giveaways. I’m trying to find a way that strikes a good balance of ease for you to enter AND ease for me to host! I love testing out new things and am no stranger to trying new services (like Triberr!). Now, I’m one of the first blogs to alpha test Rafflecopter. I’m excited, but nervous. It’s new and different which can be a tad scary, y’know?

Rafflecopter is a new giveaway application designed with ease of use in mind. It’s trying to streamline the entering for you and the management for me. No more leaving 3 identical comments for you, easier weeding out duplicate/false entries for me! Alpha testing means it’s in the initial phases of being applied and used. It’s been worked on and developed but now it needs real use. As we provide feedback it will get tweaked. There may be issues along the way, but that’s part of the testing – to find and fix!

I’m hoping this will be helpful to both of us! Now… on to the giveaway!
Disclosure: I received a code for 50 Shutterfly cards for writing my spring post; however, I decided to give them away.

    This way is easier than some. If we were able to submit these comments with the above form that would make it easier, rather than going back and forth between the comments section of the blog and clicking DONE on the above form. I do like how you have to do the mandatory entry before the others are clickable – that makes it very clear what needs to be done.
