My EC Contest Winners!

Here now are the winners of my EC blog contest! They were chosen using the random list generator at 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.

For the blog advertiser/top commenter category, the winner is Melissa of Melissa's Garage Sale - The top commenter of one of our sponsors Femme Power. She will recieve 10,000 EC credits from Trader's Hub. Melissa hails from North Florida and is an active blogger . She has 3 blogs to her credit - Melissa's Homeschool, Melissa's Jewelry, Melissa's Garage Sale. She is a homeschooler and a mother of two children ages 7 and 3. Also a part time nurse, it is a wonder how she is able to comfortably manage her time and still find time to blog and even be a moderator of a Yahoo Blogging Group called Blogging for fun which she also started. 

For the blog review category, the winner is Sharkbytes of Just Throw The Money. Sharkbytes  is also an active blogger with 5 blogs to her credit:  Just Throw The Money, Word Fun, You Love To Hate Accordion, North Country Trail News, and Get Off The Couch News.

  1. Great contest. I enjoyed participating and Congrats to the winners!

  2. Well, I am absolutely floored! Thank you so much. One always knows that there will be a winner, but I never expected it to be me.

    I invite everyone to come to beginning July 20. There will be a scavenger hunt, with some prizes running for a few weeks while I am gone hiking. Hey, you can come over before then even and say hi!

  3. Oh, PS- Due to a glitch with having 2 blogger identities, my most generally interesting blog didn't get listed above (not Big Daddy's fault- how was he to know!). It's My Quality Day at

    Many thanks to all the sponsors. I'll try to visit all your blogs.

  4. Congrats to the winners.Great contest, thanks to Big Daddy.
    I have already sent the ECs to Sharkbytes.

  5. Dear,
    I just ended second in your list as it is seen from the image,but one thing I am not able to understand that why these entries are showing more than one times the same site,so don't you think that they have higher chances of winning.
    Please explain it and don't take it otherwise.I wish that contests held over here should be non-biased so I had put forth this querry.
    waiting for your reply ,

  6. Great contest!

    Big Daddy Richard congratulations and cheers to a successful event!


  7. OMG thank you, I did not even realize I was in it. I knew Femmepower was a sponsor, how awesome, thank you. I must correct one part you gave me too much credit. The three blogs that are mine are melissasjewelryandgems, melissas garage sales, and melissashomeschool, the others belong to someone else named melissa. Just wanted to clarify that in case anyone notices. Have a great Sunday, it has been kind of crazy here in N Florida.

  8. Congrats to Sharkbytes! Sent her my sponsored credits already.

  9. Congrats to all the winner! I am wondering why I didn't enter, Doh!

  10. Hey Richard,
    Congrats to all the winners and especially to you my friend for hosting the contest. Surely you will reap a hundred fold because of your generosity.

    Friends 4 Life!

  11. I miss this one. Hope that I can participate in your next contest.

    I read about your comment in EC and I do agree with you. You can't force people to leave their comments if they don't want to.
