Winning Update!! What's up with all the clicking?!

I'm just curious... how many of you have entered one of those super-duper, massively long, click-til-yer-dizzy giveaways?!

I've entered TWO so far, so the torture I've participated in so far equals the pay-back.  Ha!

I don't know about you, but my thoughts start going 'round in circles something like this:
hey! there's one I already follow
click
click
click
click
at least I don't have to type my name over and over
click
it took me forever to think of copying and pasting that one time
click
click
did I miss one? *back up* *check* click
click
click
I really should clean the house
click
instead of click
click
but what if the NEXT click is the winner?!
click
click
click
click
this is totally stupid
click
click
I'm just going to stop
click
click
on the very next one!!!
click
click
click
oh, hey!  there's the END!!
click
click
click
click
and there's a BONUS 10pt click!!!!  Sweet!!
click
there.  That's all the Facebooks.  Should I do the Twitters today or tomorrow?
Tomorrow.
jajajajaja  Ok... that was as exciting to write out as it is to enter a long giveaway!!!

I'm a little torn, to be honest. The prizes on those big giveaways are too good to pass up, you know?  And somebody's gotta win... why not me?!  On the other hand... it is a lot like torture.

It helps a LOT for me when I'm participating at a blogger I already (pretty much) trust. You know?   I HOPE that my blogger friends know who they're hangin' out with. It adds a bit of confidence to the sudden expansion of FB & Twitter followage. 

I mean, I know the bloggers I'm hookin' up with for the book blasts - they're all awesome and I'm so happy to follow 'em, anyway. I'm paying attention to that sort of thing, big prize or no!!

This is in response to a comment I rec'd which cracked me up... after I'd just left a similar on another book blogger's site. *snort*

  1. hahahaha That's EXACTLY what I thought to myself last night when I was doing allllllllllll those endless FB clickings - I'm going to get carpal tunnel in my index finger ;P

    And then, God forbid - you have to go back to make sure you didn't miss a *confirm*. ARGH lol ;D

    Sometimes I had to get up in the middle of the whole process to stretch my back & grab a snack. Oh my ... what we go thru~

    1. Yea!! The first time I made it all the way down to the bonus, I had to backtrack a bunch!! lol Time consuming... but rafflecopter is so impersonal. Anyone could win!!! lol

  2. When i see giveaways like that with 3 trillion entries, it's pretty much a given that I'm not gonna win. LOL. So, like you, I only put in the entries for twitters/fb pages/blogs I already follow :)

  3. Ha..what's REALLY horrible is twitter-following, because SOMETIMES TWITTER DOES NOT WORK RIGHT so even when you click, and the box is greyed out..it turns out you aren't even following the person so I have to double click for the popup..and then follow...

    I never win those gigantic giveaways...but I just find it nice to expand my twitter/facebook followings...

    Thank God, I'm not alone in this whole clicking thing! When I realized just how many FB pages I've followed last month I had a serious WHAT_THE_$%&§ moment, hahaha! But you're right, some of those giveaways are sooo tempting!

    1. The trick is following FB as a person vs. a page...

      If I just click, it's ME, not my page. So then I gotta open a bazillion windows and switch to Burgandy Ice to Like every one. I think I have something set up wrong........ or I just toss my family FB to the wind and run after book bloggers.

      Hey... tempting!

  6. I know what you mean! I think it's Rafflecopter...or something to that effect, that has endless clicking. Some sites more than others.

    Sometimes I forget HOW I'm following somebody...lol
