How to Pick a Winner

Well, today was the day to pick a winner for my 100th post contest. I long debated with myself how I should go about this task. “Well, Rachael,” I said to myself, “There are a number of ways you can complete this small feat.” And thus I came up with the possibilities:

  1. make a list of names and have your mother/sister/other relative pick a number (after assigning everyone a number of course)
  2. the same except use one of those online randomizer thingies
  3. close your eyes and point (probably the worst idea)
  4. make up some weird/wacky thing involving numbers and letters that will eventually lead you to a winner
  5. use an ouija board; it knows all
  6. write each name on a slip of paper and stick them in a funky/cool hat/boot/bowl-like-thing

Since I decided that the first two options were too boring, the third was just a bad idea, I didn’t know how to do number 4, and I don’t own an ouija board, I had to go with the last idea. Thus...

...this awesome beret turned into...

...a container for slips of paper from which I picked the winner...

...who is (for those of you who don't have magnifying glasses)...


Congrats, Meredith!!! I will be in touch with you soon via email. If you don't respond back within a week, I will be forced to pick another winner.

I want to thank all of you who entered into my contest; I had over 100 entries!!! Whoo hoo! That's awesome. And don't despair if you didn't win! I will probably be holding more contests soon (there's one going on for two e-books) and you can always enter one of the contests on my list.
