Here now are the winners of my EC blog contest! They were chosen using the random list generator at random.org. I initially prepared a list of the participants ( one for those who did a blog review and another for those who posted the contest badge in their sites and the top commenters of our contest sponsors for the month of June). Each participant was listed 10x (10 entries). I hit the randomize button 3x and the one at the top of the list (the third time the list was randomized was declared the winner.
