It was a total flop, with little to no participation and no entries at all. :/
I didn't waste any time being depressed or angry about this. These days, definitely since I've been learning more about myself thanks to the help of a special certain someone, I've been more willing to take a deep breath and think, "It's not the end of the world when things don't work out. Just breathe, think, and handle it."
With my contest and it's massive failure, I have to take the things below into account. I'm not sure I'll be doing another one of these contests for a while:
- Lasted too long.
- Not enough coverage, even though I tried to put the link to the contest in every post and had event pages in multiple places.
- My presence and Triple R's presence is not strong enough.
- Too many details.
So, how many of you out there tried to manage something big, like a contest or a collection or a site or whatever, and just watched it totally not work out in the end? What do you think were the reasons that made it not work out? Are you willing to try again?
