Whodunnit Update



We are almost halfway through WHODUNNIT – A 600 follower celebration/contest and ten people have made an attempt at guessing who murdered Grayson Wilboune. Five of those were right! Kudo’s to them! I know of only one blogger who located all 37 clues *waves at Vicki* and being the generous spirit that she is, offered to give some away on her blog. There is still plenty of time! Those who haven’t made a guess yet and are shooting to have their names entered FIVE TIMES in the drawing for a $20 quarterly gift card, have until Monday morning to do so. Incorrect guesses still get your name entered in the drawing, but only ONCE. On Monday morning I’ll be posting the links to all 37 clue locations and correct guesses after that will also go into the hat just ONCE.

How about a tip on how to figure out the clues? No way…you gotta do the work. But I will tell you this, I am tricky, but not devious. All the clues are to be taken at face value. Don’t read in anything that’s not there or let your imagination get the best of you.

I have to admit I’ve been a bit disappointed with non-mystery related participation. The last time I held a blog contest, back when I achieved 300 followers, I had 57 ‘Like-Minded’ take part. This time around I have twice as many followers, but only one more participant (58). Now it is early and there is still another week left to go, but I don’t think the word about my contest has reached my casual readers, the ones who drop by sporadically. So I’m going to add some incentive to help get the word out.

If you mention this contest on your blog someway (either in a post or on your side-bar), tweet about it, or put it in your Facebook status, you’ll earn an extra two spots in the general drawing (non-mystery related). Just leave me a comment here telling me what you have done and I’ll make the change. Some of you have already spread the word out of the kindness of your hearts, and that means a lot, but I haven’t been keeping track so make sure you leave me a comment and get the proper credit. Remember though, everyone has to leave a comment on my original post to be eligible for any prizes!

Have fun everybody! Enjoy your weekends.

  21. I'm not ready to guess yet, but I have posted about your contest. There are a few more sites I need to visit before I'm ready to hazard a guess. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  25. I loved this contest! So much fun pulling all the clues together. Thanks for the shout, I was wondering why I suddenly had in increase in clue requests!

  26. I really think this is a fantastic contest and I would love to participate - but I'm struggling now to get around to everyone as it is, and I'm already spending WAY too much time on the computer. That being said, I'll be watching with interest and I really admire your originality!

  28. I'm having a great time trying to figure out the answer! I've only been able to find 27 clues though, so I wonder if I should wait... Narrowed it down to three suspects...

    ReplyDelete
  29. This sounds fun! *rubs hands together* Going to your original post to find out all about it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I forgot to tell you that I did add your fantastically fun contest to my sidebar @ virginsheets.blogspot.com.

    And I'll be making a second guess before the deadline on Sunday.

    I'm SO not good at mystery solving. Scooby and the gang would be disappointed in me.
