we have a winner...

May 6, 2010

So, last night the giveaway closed and I picked a winner. This was my first time hosting a giveaway, so I was nervous about this part! This is the part that really matters!

I went to random.org, typed in my numbers, (there were 85 comments), and it told me comment 49 was the winner. I then proceeded to attempt a screen shot which (surprise, surprise) failed miserably.

(I am not the tech-iest person on the block, although, I DID take ADVANCED Word Processing in high school, I'll have you know. Not that being skilled in Wordperfect does anyone any good these days. I just want you to know that I did TRY to learn computer things--I just didn't learn anything useful.)

So, back to my problem. No screenshot. To solve it, I did what any other quick-thinking cavewoman would do, and took this shot of the screen with my camera. There. Problem solved. Ooga-Booga.

Don't laugh at me, smart people!  On second thought...go ahead. I would laugh at me if I were you, too.

And comment 49? That would belong to Cassie @ Southern Domestic Goddess. (I LOVE her blog title!)

If you haven't visited her blog before, check it out!

Thanks again to everyone who commented, and subscribed, and followed, and "liked" my blog, and posted my button, and even wrote a post about my giveaway! It means a lot to me that you read my blog and take the time to comment. You are the best.

I love the idea of taking a picture! I never show my results because I have no idea how to do a screenshot either. I always just hope people know I'm honest about the winner!

Cassie just won my EcoSMART giveaway last week! Lucky girl! ☺

Some bloggers take screenshots (I'm pretty techy these days but I had to seek out help to figure it out) others don't. I've never questioned the ones that don't. For my first giveaway I had my daughter pick a number and just recently I did the pull a name from a hat trick just for fun! I'm laughing a little at your method (not at you) but at least you're a quick thinker! ☺

Congrats to Cassie!
I have a Picnik account and have a thing set up where I can right click and send a page to Picnik to edit. That's how I get my random.org pic posted.

Hey! I just want to say I am not the techie person in my house (that would be my husband!)...He showed me how to do the screenshot and I can tell you how. It's super easy...

Check your buttons on your keyboard for Prt Scr (Print Screen). Press it.

Now bring up your Paint program.

Now paste it into the paint program (Ctrl+V).

Then you can crop the size and save it as your jpeg and your done.

I couldn't believe how easy it was. Hope it helps!

btw - I took WordPerfect in High School too!!!
