Summer Fluffin’ Event Round Up #clothdiapers #Giveaway

I’m sad to say that Summer Fluffin’ has come to an end.  It’s been a lot of fun for me and I hope it has been for you too!  I’ve gotten to know my cohosts Mariah and April better which is awesome too!  All of you have left so many great comments too.  I know I didn’t get a chance to respond to all of them, but I tried to make sure to answer questions.

I want to remind you that there are lots of great giveaways to enter!  Formula Mom did a wonderful job keeping an ongoing list of all the giveaways featured throughout the event from all 3 blogs.  Head on over to her giveaway round up to make sure you entered everything!

Time for some feedback…

Please let us know what you thought of the event:

  1. Did you like the variety of reviews and giveaways featured on each blog?
  2. Do you wish there was a big prize pack?
  3. Did you like the topics we covered?
  4. Did you like reading different perspectives on each topic?
  5. What kind of topics would you like to see next time?
  6. What kinds of cloth diapers (or accessories) would you like to see reviewed and/or given away next time?

And because I value your time in answering these questions in the comments (or email, you can do it that way too) I’m going to give you 5 extras (labeled Survey1, Survey2, etc) on any ONE giveaway of your choice.  (Or you can split them up, but it’s not 5 extra on each.)

    The giveaway was awesome. I really liked that one some days all 3 of you posted about the same topic but had differing opinions – super helpful! I liked the number of giveaways, lots of chances to win.

    My only suggestion would be to have entries be in just one form. I’ve seen it on other sites where you are given the same type of entries (for following on Twitter, FB, GFC, etc) but you only need to fill out one form that tallies all entries. It is super helpful, takes less time and I think it would just be better. Otherwise the Fluffin’ event was a lot of fun! =)

      It’s tough finding the perfect balance of easy entry and easy monitoring & winner picking. We definitely will look at some thing different next time.

      I used to use all forms when I started giveaways but they are time consuming to create and go through to count entries. Plus people can’t see how many entries unless I do an update.

      I wanted to use Rafflecopter, but it doesn’t have a way to add on the extras for commenting and such yet.

      I know where you are coming from though! I love entering on forms but don’t like being on the other side of them lolSyrana

  5. 1. Did you like the variety of reviews and giveaways featured on each blog?
    I loved the variety! There was a giveaway literally for everything that I want to try at some point!

    2. Do you wish there was a big prize pack?
    I like being able to enter each individual giveaway, that way I have more of a chance of winning. I think if there was a big prize pack, plus each individual thing that would be cool. But if it was one or the other, I’d say go without the big prize pack.

    3. Did you like the topics we covered?
    I liked the topics covered, and I liked how detailed the review of the diapers were, and how there were pictures. I especially liked how it wasn’t just about the diaper, but the fit on the child (IE: if it leaves marks etc).

    4. Did you like reading different perspectives on each topic?
    I did! They were very insightful.

    5. What kind of topics would you like to see next time?
    Teething, and safe rash cream for cloth (I hven’t found one yet! that’s affordable).

    6. What kinds of cloth diapers (or accessories) would you like to see reviewed and/or given away next time?

    Definitely RaR, FB, more itti bitti tuttos! I’m determined to win one. :D

    Did you like the variety of reviews and giveaways featured on each blog?
    Yes! I loved there were wet bags, detergent and a variety of cloth diapers that I haven’t used before.

    Do you wish there was a big prize pack?
    No, I just hope I win something. If it were there I wouldn’t hate it but I don’t mind it not being there.

    Did you like the topics we covered?
    YES!! I am very new to cloth diapering. It gave me a lot of insight and answered some questions. I even bookmarked some of the topics for reference later on.

    Did you like reading different perspectives on each topic?
    I didn’t read them all but on the topics that I really was interested in I read the different blogs and it helped.

    What kind of topics would you like to see next time?
    I would like to know how you told people you were going to use CD and how you may have worded on your baby shower invite.

    What kinds of cloth diapers (or accessories) would you like to see reviewed and/or given away next time?
    RAR (I like that they have a newborn setting on the diaper but I don’t know if it would fit a newborn), Whams bc there are so many out there, wet bags (you can never have enough good ones) that is all I can think of now. :)

    Thank you so much for the giveaways!! Crossing my fingers that I will win something.

    I thought the variety of giveaways was awesome!!! I do not wish there was a big prize pack, I think it is nicer for lots of people to win one thing than for one person to win lots of things!
    I thought the topics covered were great and I loved the different perspectives. The topics covered were great for new CDing moms like me, and since I do not know any other CDing moms it was great to read different views on each topic!
    I think that some homemade wipe solutions would have been nice! I use mostly disposable wipes but would like to start using cloth ones but i dont know where to start with what to use on them.
    I think a wide variety of all different kinds of diapers are the best, for people who want to try all different types and brands.

    1) I loved the variety! It was nice to see so many different products and different opinions on each one!!
    2) I like having the smaller prizes. It allows multiple people a chance to try some of the wonderful products!!!
    3) I loved the different topics! I learned so much from reading each blog.
    4) It was really nice having different perspectives on the topics. Everyone has their own opinion and this helps give a better picture for each topic/product!!
    5) I would love to see more about rash creams and stripping diapers! Maybe something about training pants and potty training…
    6)I would love more reviews (and giveaways) on swim diapers (Charlie Banana or AppleCheeks), diaper sprayers and diaper creams.

    This was such an AMAZING event! I learned so much and can’t wait for the next one!!! Thank you!!
