Apology and No-Reply Blogger

I apologize to those of you who had hopes of winning the giveaway but didn't. When I first retracted Debbie's win (per her request) I did a poor job of properly explaining why she wasn't getting the booklet.  Then went back to update the blog to try and explain better but those who had already read it probably wouldn't go back to see the correction so the damage had already be to speak.  

Some of you are scratching their heads wondering what the deal is with a no reply blogger I'll show you what I get when I tried to contact who I now know as Leta and not just pudgypooh.  (See below which is copied and pasted here).

pudgypooh has left a new comment on your post "Winner of the Giveaway is.......":
Hi Saundra,
I am so disappointed that my entry was not accepted. I have clicked on my profile and it shows my email. I just don't know what I am doing wrong here. :O(
Anyway it is nice to know I almost won your great give away. I will continue to follow your blog but I guess I will no longer bother to enter any of your giveaways.
Thank you for trying.
Since I couldn't reply to Leta I double-clicked on the word 'pudgypooh' and it took me to what I know as her profile page (click on it to see what I saw).  There is no e-mail address so thought the Blog name of Woolensails must be her so contacted Debbie St. Germain.  Debbie said she hadn't entered and had so many projects already started and wouldn't use it so best to give it to someone who had entered.  So I drew another name.
At this point I'm not sure what you must do in order for you to NOT have a no reply.  All I can say is there are numerous people to whom I can reply yet several will come up as no-reply.  I also tried to respond to Rina to explain this debacle since she was surely thinking I was being unfair, but she is also a no-reply so she wouldn't have received the message.  Rina, hopefully you'll read this and understand.
Apology to all and to all a good night.  Have a good weekend everyone.


  1. Saundra,
    You had clearly stated your position beforehand on the "no reply" blogger, so stop beating yourself up over this!!!
    I still love ya'.
    Hugs :)

  2. Saundra,
    As I said, I was just trying to figure out what I was doing incorrectly. When I click on the pudgypooh link, I see a blank page, so something is wrong with the system. Anyway, no apology is necessary on your part.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Here is how to fix the problem, so you are no longer a no-reply blogger.
    Yes, someone's actually blogged about it and they have a great tutorial to fix things.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
