Testing something new for Rafflecopter

This is just a test post. I'm having some issues with hosting more than one Rafflecopter giveaway at a time.

I plan to continue using Rafflecopter, because it is so much easier on me and on entrants. If you have any issues with entering one of my Rafflecopter giveaways, please let me know and I'll try to resolve it the best I can.

Right now the issue I have is when you're on my main website, PS Mom Reviews, you can only load one Rafflecopter giveaway. So if you scroll down, you won't see the other forms for the giveaways. The easy solution to this is simple to click the title of the post that you're wanting to enter and you will have that entry form load in that post just fine.

The idea that I received from Rafflecopter is to make my giveaway posts "read more...". Then if you are on my main page, you simply click the read more in the post to enter the giveaway on it's own page. You'll still be able to read my whole posts in your feed reader. (I don't like partial feeds, so I won't do that to you.) You will only notice this when you come to my main page and scroll down to look at various posts.

I hope that this works for us here, so I can continue using Rafflecopter for giveaways. I hope that you're enjoying entering that way. Please let me know what you think about the Rafflecopter forms now that I've used them a bit more.

And keep a lookout for a different way to announce winners. Since I can announce right in the Rafflecopter form, I might simplify the way I'm doing winner posts too. I'll let you know when/if I change that too.

Thanks for bearing with me.

Hi Sarah, did you read the Rafflecopter post about putting the page break on every Rafflecopter post? I do this and I haven't had any issues. Here's the link:
