I do a lot of book reviews, as most of you know, and some of them have giveaways attached. If I put a book review/giveaway on a comment place it is because I am looking for comments on the book or my review-I am not looking for people to sign up for the giveaway unless they really want to. I usually put a Mandatory question and if that is not answered-well that person will not win and I consider it a comment which I truly appreciate. I add my giveaways to many giveaway linkys a day for that purpose! I also join Re Tweet groups and Tweet out everything of mine at least twice a day (manually).
The other day I added a book review/giveaway to a group—as is my usual practice I went back in a while later to catch and comment on others posts. Imagine my surprise when I saw a couple of comments directed totally at me-but not mentioning me by name. Something to the effect that giveaways should not be allowed in comment posts (not in this groups rules) and then another person commented that “she didn’t have the time…”—I wrote a comment that I did not expect people to enter the giveaway-just comment and that I deleted my post (which I did)—I had already commented on 5 others—but I decided that I would unfavorite this particular group which I did. I did go back later and all the posts directed at me were deleted-mine was still there—Well-that group lost someone who actually commented on all the posts.
