We have a winner ...

First of all I want to thank everyone for stopping by my blog on the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Blog Hop. A lot of old and a whole lot of new people dropped by for a chance to win, and frankly, I was shocked how many new followers I gained even though following wasn't mandatory. Thank you for that too!!

While I obviously didn't check whether someone follows, or not, I did have to delete two entries for not following the mandatory rules. Come on, how hard can it be to answer one little question for a giveaway? It's not as if I had asked for your take on the binomial inverse theorem or something equally mind-boggling. As to people entering past the midnight deadline, well, they followed the rules so I figured they should still be in for a chance of winning. What difference does an hour make anyway, especially when we are all living in different time zones!

With the sheer number of entries I also realized that writing names on paper slips and doing the good ol' pick-name-out-of-a-hat formula wasn't going to be the most sensible choice. So, random.org it is. Then, of course, I was faced with the fact that the comments to my blog posts aren't numbered. Haha. For a brief moment it looked as though I might end up going blind counting down to the winning number at least twice, just to be sure I got the right one. But fear not, I managed to add those numbers after a brief online search on how to do this.

Long story short - random.org spit out a number and the name that goes with that number is ...

E-mail is on the way and please get back to me within the next 48 hours!

To all of you who did not win this time, don't fret and frown!
