Remember I ran a competition some time ago now, for people who wrote two or more non-spam comments on the blog?
Well, it’s fortunate I didn’t set a time-limit or a date to draw a winner, because once I deleted borderline spam trying to attract people to other businesses, it took a while to get a suitable number of entrants together. Although I know there is a readership, I’ve received a number of feedback-type comments as emails rather than comments on the blog! If I can’t even stick to my own rules …
And then I felt as if it was a poor look to pull a name from a hat when there were only three names and one of them a real-world friend of mine, so I waited until I had a few more entries.
When I deemed myself to have enough entrants, I cut up the required number of identically-sized pieces of paper, wrote the names on them, folded them up in the identical way, threw them in the “hat” (actually a used metal jar) and left it on a shelf for a few hours, giving it a shake every time I went past. Then just before pulling a winner a few minutes ago, I shook it up again, and drew a piece of paper with my left hand, with my eyes averted.
On unfolding the paper, the winner turned out to be … Stella Hoshiko! Congratulations, Stella!
Stella has won a pair of magnetic acupressure-studs decorated with a Swarovski crystal each, in her choice of half-a-dozen colours. I have emailed her privately to notify her, and to establish which colour she would prefer and arrange delivery.
Congratulations once again, Stella, and I hope you find your studs both attractive and beneficial for a long time to come.
