You won't want to make this mistake any time soon

As I have mentioned before, I read a LOT of blogs. Every day. I spend my evening hours at work reading blogs for hours like they are that great new book you just can't put down. I read about cooking and cleaning and sewing and crafts and - you get the picture.
One of the blogs I read every day is A Year of Crockpotting. Stephanie has made something everyday this year in a crockpot. Some have been old stand by meals, some have been gourmet meals, there has even been melted crayons. She did it all in the crockpot. She has been on Rachel Ray. I really like reading this blog.
Last night when I started reading I saw she is giving away a crockpot. I love to use my crockpot to cook since I am rarely home, it is a good way for me to make dinner and put enough away to eat several times without cooking since it is just me to feed. The crock part of my crockpot cracked and so I decided I would enter the giveaway. Fat chance I'll win but hey I won't if I don't enter.
When I was filing out the required stuff on blogger, I checked a box about reply e-mails. I thought it meant that she would reply to that e-mail. OH NO my friends. It means that EVERY SINGLE ONE of her thousands of comments from people wanting to win the crockpot (the one I want) is coming to my inbox along with the hundreds of e-mails from the people entering my giveaway.
I told Stephanie what I did and she is still laughing about it. I bet she couldn't sleep last night laughing about it.
I'm sure glad it wasn't Pioneer Woman that I did that to...

LOL .... been there, done that .... I did the same way back when and could not figure out why I was getting emails for another person's post. Thanks heavens the blog was not such a popular one and I was spared the grief you are going through. I sure do love my crockpot and here's hoping that you win.
