Congrats to the first round of contest winners! These commenters were chosen at random with the help of a random number generator. Any comment submitted on or after March 31st (when I announced the contest) was entered and given a number based on when it was posted, with 1 being the first post submitted on March 31st.
I will be emailing the winners today so that I can get their prizes out as soon as possible. If you did not win, keep on commenting! On Saturday, May 4th I will be pulling three additional winners based on comments from the entire month of April. At that time I will also tally the comments and the three people with the most comments throughout the month will also get a prize. Thank you all so much for your continued support! If you have any questions or concerns about this contest, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
