I'm afraid to say that I am having second thoughts about hosting a 2nd Annual PSP Blog Hop this year in May. Issues with prizes not being awarded and disgruntled winners, real life just "happens" sometimes and unforeseen things occur - and I just do not like being on the receiving end of the negativity and ungrateful attitudes. I am a "happy humans" type of person and always wish nothing but happiness for the people that do participate in these events.
Our prize contributors do so out of the kindness of their hearts – to give back to those of you that have made purchases from them all year long, to give those of you who are not familiar with their work an opportunity to learn more about them – and the majority of the contributors sign up for these events months in advance with every intention of being able to award their prize contributions to the winners. However, real life (as we all know) has a way of interfering with the best of intentions, and sometimes things just happen that are beyond our control. The contributors receive nothing in return except exposure on our blog and Facebook fan page for their contributions.
So I am faced with the dilemma of whether or not to actually host the Blog Hop this year or to forgo the effort and time and sheer dedication to nothing else but the organization of the hop for the next two months or determine if it is really appreciated at all, what the prize contributors do to help make each hop a success, not to mention the time and dedication they put into creating their special prize contributions and the time and dedication of every member of the staff that assists in making it a success.
I would love your input and feedback on the subject.
We Thank You!
