Blogmania VS Blogfest

So now that both Blogmania and Blogfest are long over I've had plenty of time to reflect on them. I did win with both of them. With Blogfest I won an ebook and a hard cover book. With blogmania I won a prize pack of well meh gifts. Don't get me wrong I'm happy to have won something.

     I think that blogmania had much nicer gifts and a greater variety of prizes. However it was very disorganized. I know of one blog that was completely left off of the list of participating blogs till mid afternoon of the first day. So there were conflicting lists of blogs. Only a few blogs seemed to forget that they were going to host giveaways.

    While Blogfest did not have that great a variety of items (the majority of prizes were books) the checklist of participating blogs was sheer genius. I've been spoiled. That checklist was a lifesaver. I could walk away and not worry where I left off. I could write notes for each blog  like come back if they said they were adding more items the next day to the giveaway. Unfornatley with Blogfest there were a number of blogs that posted VERY late or not at all.
   For me personally the clear winner was Blogfest. One constant list that I could check off of is what won it. I'm very unorganized person in my personal life. So when I work or do things like this I like to be very organized. I could not stand that in blogmania the list of blogs constantly changed and I was always left wondering if I actually did get to all of the blogs that participated.

  I signed up for holiday blog giveaway so we will see how that one goes. I have high hopes and hope that it brings in a lot of traffic to my site.
