I've made a few changes on my blog if you haven't noticed... I've put the contests I enter on it's own page at Contests by others I've also moved my blog roll to it's on page too, as it was getting so long! That can be found at Bloggyland Blogs roll call

Now, the delimma I think I am having. Is it a contest or is it a giveaway? I'm afraid I'm rather perplexed with this issue. Like see here writers, witches and words, oh my! is having a "giveaway" as she calls it. A pretty good one too if I do say so, but of course, like every other people that have giveaways, there are hoops to go through. Like, blogging about it, commenting about it, following the blog and some even have a lot more to do in order to be in the running for the item(s) they are offering..

Is it a contest? Or are they ALL just giveaways? When I post my first "giveaway" and ask you to do a couple of things (though they won't be much because really, it's quite annoying and tedious to follow all these rules in order to win something) do I call it a give away? Or do I call it a Contest. Does it really freaking matter? Should I just put all the contests/giveaways on my special page for what I've been calling contests, even though they may just be giveaways? (Is your head spinning around like Linda Blair yet?)

Seriously, I like to enter these things. I like to win stuff. I just don't like being confused on what it is I am doing. Am I entering a contest or am I entering a giveaway. Am I doing a giveaway or am I doing a contest.

Tell me my bloggyland friends, while it seems rather trivial especially with all that is going on in my life, tell me what you think about this contest vs giveaway thing. Make it make sense though ok? The simple things really do elude me.
