April 2007 RAW Timeline and Summary



The April 2007 Reader Appreciation Week is over. That means we now have to choose any day on our own as reader appreciation day and give back to our readers. I would suggest giving back to the readers everyday in the form of respect and communication. Building bonds with all your commentors is great. If building special bonds with everyone is too hard for you, doing it with a select few is also a step in the right direction. In this post I will outline the summary of events that happened during 2007 April’s Reader Appreciation Week.

This post will be updated with more info as time passes. I will outline the April 2007 RAW events in three ways:

  1. Daily timeline
  2. Winner by winner summary
  3. Prizes awarded summary

Daily timeline

  1. Monday, April 9th
    • Shawn was announced as the 1st RAW winner
  2. Tuesday, April 10th
    • Shawn, the first winner, did not respond within 24 hours, so Penguins was chosen as a replacement. Penguins was thus the new 1st winner.
    • Jerine was announced as the 2nd RAW winner
  3. Wednesday, April 11th
    • Lisa Saarloos became the 3rd RAW winner
    • Penguins, the 1st RAW winner replacement, claimed $100 cash via money order
    • Jerine, the 2nd RAW winner, gave up her prize so that others can benefit. Sawai was chosen as the 2nd RAW winner replacement because of that. Sawai will get a prize when he visits Bes.
  4. Thursday, April 12th
    • Raurie was the 4th RAW winner.
    • Lisa Saarloos was considered *missing* by me, as she had not responded to me within 24 hours. Stacee was announced the 4th RAW winner replacement.
  5. Friday, April 13th
    • SP was the 5th RAW winner and claimed a free domain name renewal for a year
    • Lisa Saarloos, the honored 3rd RAW winner, contacted me. I then decided to award her a prize also because of the time difference and because I realized people have busy lives. Both Stacee and Lisa get the 3rd RAW winner prize/gift. Lisa got an Amazon gift certificate via e-mail.
    • Raurie, the 4th RAW winner, chose $50 JCPenny gift card as her gift.

Almost everyone has claimed a gift so far

I am still waiting for 2 friends to choose their gifts. So far, things have been going smooth. I feel less trauma now because of the prizes going away, as the shocks came in sudden and big bursts instead of slow and painful torture. After the final 2 winners have been awarded their gifts, I can move on with my life and try to be happy! :)

What do you think about this timeline so far?

Please let me know what you think of this time so far. Was it easy to understand? Do you have any suggestion on how I can improve it or clarify it further? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for reading. :)
