Yep, it's almost that time again! 2012 Calendar contest time! That is, if you all are still interested in participating.. I'm thinking of changing things up a bit this year and wanted to get your opinions first. If you could take the time to answer the questions below, I would be super grateful :)
Here we go..
1. Would you still participate if there was no free calendar as the prize? This eats up over $200 of total donations collected for corgi rescue (BTW, this year's calendar was able to donate $500 to the Lakeshore Corgi Rescue.. $200 more than last year!). Digital Calendars will still be given out to winners, since they don't cost me anything. Is this ok? Or is the free calendar the main motivation for you sending your photos in?
2. How did you feel about the voting process last year? Would you like to have finalists and vote again, or would you rather I just pick the winners by myself (and not have 30 finalists). Is voting in the comments ok, or would you rather have a more sophisticated poll? I've decided that I will not do a second calendar for the finalists not making the main calendar this year, if that sways your decision at all :)
3. While I won't do the second calendar for the finalists, I AM thinking of doing a second calendar for people who's corgis do not have blogs (although, those WITH blogs can participate as well)! Which would be called... Corgi Butts! Which would feature... pictures of corgi butts! What do you think of that idea? I know a lot of people feel left out every year because they do not have a blog.. or they start one up for the sole purpose of getting in the Corgis (with blogs) Calendar and then never update it.. so I thought this would be a good idea. Or do you think it would take away from the other calendar contest? Or get confusing? Also, would you care if this one's profits did not go to corgi rescue (in other words, I get paid from it :) ).. or should it definitely be donated? Please be honest! :)
4. Is it annoying that Gibson pretty much automatically gets his photo in the calendar(s), just cause I'm the one in charge? Or am I allowed to do that? haha :)
Ok, that's it I think! Please let me know your opinions! Thanks so much!!!! :)
