Hey kids! I want to run a contest on my blog/site for a couple of unused, NIB toys. What do you guys use to run your contests and is it a pain in the booty? Thanks!

It can be annoying, if you don't do it correctly. What I found helps is to keep the contest running for no longer than a few weeks, so people don't forget about it and so you don't get completely overwhelmed. Be very specific about how people enter- do they comment on your post? Email you? Tweet about it? etc.

I also found it helpful to keep a word document where everyone who entered was added to a numbered list, as they entered. That way I was keeping track of things as they were happening, instead of leaving it until the last minute. I always chose my winners via a random number generator as well, so that way you can just referred to your list of entrants to see which name matches up with that number.

Rafflecopter is the best thing ever for that. It does all the work for you.
