Should I Join The Dark Side?

Okay, it’s not really that bad. I just need to know what my readers think about this. I’ve added a poll at the bottom of the page.

Last year I wrote a post I called “Is Requiring “Follows” or “Likes” to Enter a Contest a Good Idea?” and I really haven’t changed my opinion on the subject. I have not participated in some pretty cool drawings that I would love to offer my readers, because entries into the drawings include liking and/or following oodles of blogs. These are all optional entries, but still…

However, I recently received an email about a book blast for what sounds like a great book. And all the participating blogs will be on the Rafflecopter form, with entries for liking and/or following. The prize is a $100 Amazon gift card. I would love to participate, not only to promote this book, but also to offer my readers the chance to win the gift card. But I want to know what you think about it.

Would you like me to post these great drawings as long as the “follow” entries are optional? Or are we keeping this a “no-like” zone? I need some input. I have about 50 regular readers, and I’m sure at least a few of you have opinions…

Should I post multi-blog drawings that have large book-related prizes, even if they have those like and follow entries?

  • Whatever. Why are you asking me? It's your blog. (50%, 2 Votes)

  • Other: Leave a comment. (25%, 1 Votes)
  • No! I thought we agreed on the whole like-to-enter thing. (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 4

    I clicked “other”. I like to enter contests and I hope to win (I never do), and sometimes the “like” button leads me on an adventure I might not have experienced. I’m no help, really. Maybe one of the other 49 readers (I’m sure you have more) will have a better opinion…

      Yes, Jaci, you really are no help. :-P You’re lucky I love you. (Your answer actually sounded like a “yes” to me. LOL)
