As I'm sure most of you know, Blogger experienced almost a full day outage last week. They ended up having to restore from the previous day's backup, and posts and comments were lost. I was lucky to get 3 out of my 4 lost posts back, but I have yet to see any comments restored. I'm impatient, and I can't just sit around and wait to see IF Blogger gets everything fixed. So here's what I'm going to do:
1. All giveaways that you can see in my sidebar are still open, even if they say Closed next to them. The ones that are marked Closed will actually close tomorrow night, May 17th, at 9:00 PM EST. You have until then to enter.
2. If you left comments on any giveaway posts that were deleted during the outage, please leave them again. This applies to all giveaways in my sidebar.
3. I feel bad for all of the hassle this has caused. Therefore, I am giving you TWO extra entries into EVERY giveaway from now until the end of tomorrow, May 17th. All you have to do is leave TWO comments on the giveaway post(s) with this comment: "Blogger outage extra entry." Make sure you still complete the mandatory entry. These extra entries will only be valid if left on May 17th through midnight EST. (Remember, two of the giveaways will be closing at 9 PM EST.)
4. If the comments that were lost do miraculously come back, they will still count, even if you left them again. Consider that a little bonus for having to duplicate your original comment(s).
Again, I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience. I realize that this was beyond my control, but I'm doing my best to make it up to you.
