A Question To My Fellow Bloggers! Share Your Wisdom!

HOW DO YOU SEARCH FOR & KEEP TRACK OF THE GIVEAWAYS YOU HAVE ENTERED? IS YOUR NAME ON A WINNER'S LIST RIGHT NOW THAT YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT?
Do you spend a small part of your day entering giveaways while updating your blog, keeping your fingers crossed that you might really win? Have you ever come across a blog post before with your name listed as a winner, only to read the next sentence to discover they have picked another winner due to not being contacted in time? Well, I am happy to say that I have not experience that letdown yet but I have only recently started my blog and entering giveaways. The problem that I noticed I was becoming annoyed about this week was that I remember entering several giveaways this past week but my name could be sitting out there on a winner's list and I probably wouldn't even know it. I always remember to subscribe to the blog that is hosting the giveaway, grab their button or sign up for their e-mail updates and/or newsletters. Thinking that would be enough and I would notice winner list after winner list, I started to get overwhelmed with the amount of e-mails and feeds coming into my inbox each day. Who has time to sit and search blog after blog to see if you won a giveaway, let along even remember which giveaways you have entered recently? So, here is my question to all of my fellow bloggers out there who have been at this for a while, already gone through this particular issue at one time, or maybe you are a new blogger who is just looking for some advice like I am. Please feel free to offer any feedback, tips, advice, suggestions about my annoyance today by leaving a comment to this post. Help me learn the ropes of my new blogging life, along with all the other bloggers out there that might have the same question but didn't want to ask! Thank you so much for taking the time to post a comment and help move past this annoyance today!
