Hi folks. This is Debi. I'm Annie's mom, and I help her with this challenge, but it is her challenge. I'm just popping in to make this quick post, because there were a few questions, and Miss Annie is gone for the day.
First of all, the posts about winners of last year's contests are all on last year's What's in a Name? blog. (Including the winner of the drawing for the final prize.)
As for this year's contests, they will be randomly sprinkled throughout the year. For the first one, all you had to do to enter was answer the questions Annie asked in the comments section. We used random.org to pull a winner from the answer-ees. In general, that is how all mini-contests throughout the year will work. For the end-of-year prize, Annie will make a post asking anyone who has finished reading all their books to let her know in the comments, and then a winner will be chosen in the same fashion.
Anzlitlovers and Bingo, I hope that answered your questions. If not, let us know.
