I need your help...

On Super bowl Sunday I announced the winner of the May Arts Ribbon Blog Candy give away. The winner never notified me. Since I'm relatively new at this blogging world and would love to know what is the correct thing to do? Do I just pick another winner? This is fabulous ribbon and I'd love to see somebody have it. Your advice and wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

In the future, post a deadline for the winner to contact you. Now, I would just pick another person. Or perhaps ME!! LOL (only kidding!!)

I would pick another winner. Not sure how long others wait but I have seen some as short as 24 hours... I think 48- to 72 hours is a good span because sometimes life gets busy.
I could say "PICK ME" too, but I didn't enter the first time (I don't think!)

I agree to pick another winner -- it has been a while since you announced. (Superbowl seems so far away! Plus, being from Boston we have tried to move on as quickly as possible ;) )

I agree with the others. Give a deadline and if the winner doesn't contact you, pick another. I have seen lots of Candy drawings done this way. (Oh, and I'd also like you to pick me this time :)

I can't believe someone didn't want that gorgeous ribbon!

I agree...there should be a timeline/deadline. I think it's been plenty long enough to wait.

I say, pick another winner :))

Glad to see you back!

I still didnt have someone claim the gifts after drawing like 4 times. I just gave up on it. I am just sending random stuff now. I have a list of people who were interested and I will just draw a name when the date comes each month. no more posting for stuff and then they never come back again. so tired of that. draw again and maybe find a better way for candy-too many posters dont even hava blog and i think some are the same people under different names. I know I sent twice to the same place a while back and swear it was two different names.

Yep, I would pick another winner and the perfect one is ME!!! LOL...just kidding! But I would pick another winner and give them a deadline in which to get back to you by. Good luck! :o)
