My last blog post was an offering of a knitting pattern giveaway in return for comments. There were no comments, so there are no winners.
My "stat" numbers for my blog, have shown a growing number of "pageviews" in recent weeks. I thought that the contest was a good idea. Now I must reflect on what this means.
Maybe there are readers who have never commented to a blog before. I know when I first wanted to comment to a blog, I felt a bit daunted by the "choose a profile" thing. It is not really hard to do, but you have to be ready for that. I actually had a little used gmail address in place, so for me it could have been so easy; but still I remember that I did not leave a comment the first few times that I considered leaving a comment.
Maybe the giveaway prize was not big enough. The last two blog giveaways that I commented on both involved newly released knitting books. I would have loved to win either one. Winning a book and anticipating its delivery would be a great prize, don't you think?
Maybe (and this is also positive thinking for Knitcircus) many of my readers are Knitcircus subscribers and already had the patterns.
Maybe all of the above. At least I have to think so. I am not going to let this stop me from blogging. But I do not think that I will have another contest for a while. What do you think? Your comment is always welcome.
