Bea's Gift Basket Giveaway is No Longer Open

Anyone who has entered this giveaway will still be sent to the drawing. I had to close this giveaway because after talking to some other bloggers I really had to think about this. I was asked to post a giveaway for Bea's Gift Baskets for the chance of a reader winning a $50 Gift Basket. I had posted this and the person who had asked me to do this then said that this giveaway is a chance for a chance at one of my readers winning a gift basket. I had already done the post and had entries for it. She wanted me to revise it to where it was to be understood that my readers who enter and the readers from several other blogs would be entered into one giveaway for only one reader to win this. Then as a blogger I would be entered for a chance at a chance. I did not feel comfortable about reposting the revisions that she had asked for but I did it since I already had entrants. I will send her the entrants but I have decided to no longer participate in this. I hope you all understand. This is not the way I work and I host giveaways that give my readers the chance at winning something that I know one of my readers will win.

I also just read about how another blogger was not paid for ad space, and was supposed to get several baskets, one for each holiday/season, and Bea's did not do their part. That is really sad to hear, because they have gotten a ton of advertisement from a lot of bloggers.

Glad you posted this. I rec. the same email from Bea's and was excited to go ahead with it. But, if they are not following through on their part....I don't want to take any chances:)
Thanks!
