It wasn’t too long into this anniversary celebration that a couple of snags became apparent:
I should have used an aggregate service like Rafflecopter to handle the giveaways, because my inbox keeps filling up (which is awesome! Keep entering! I’ve always had old-school contests like this).
Unfortunately, I’m filling up your inboxes, too! I was hoping for some ridiculous reason that the posts sent to emails would arrive in a daily digest type format; instead I was slammed by over 12 individual posts to my own account…and by me. O delicious irony.
While all posts needed to be separate to avoid confusion, I’m looking at ways to keep things a little less crazy on the receiving end in the event of another giveaway extravaganza. Believe me, I received each and every post via email, too. Sorry about that situation. I know the feed readers out there get everything in a neat, daily digest, so I was hopeful the same could be said for WordPress.
Long story short: Don’t unsubscribe! Know that today is highly unusual due to the 5-year anniversary. And I am so sorry. No really.
