Back in 2010 I won a giveaway being given by Akron Ohio Moms. This was for a plugin that easily showed what giveaways you had going on, how many days left and how many comments. I seen this plugin while entering giveaways and thought it was the coolest thing. A friend purchased it, and I had to have it as well, so when I seen Akron Ohio Moms had a giveaway I entered. I won thank goodness.
However, after getting it, it become a hassle. I wasn’t a fan with the fact you had to have an even number of giveaways or the plugin would wig out. I had noticed it had a different look to it now, and I know I never got an update in my plugins area, so I went looking on Arkon Ohio Moms website, her husband is the developer of this plugin, and I seen with the purchase you got free updates.
I knew mine was pretty outdated so I went and pulled out the email saying I won back in 2010 and decided to email Matt to see if I was able to get those updates as well, he quickly sent the updated plugin my way, and with be running several giveaways right now I decided to put it to the test.
I found the updated version of this plugin to be awesome. I no longer have to have an even number of giveaways, the title shows up better, and it is so much easier to add giveaways to it. With these updates, it makes this a must have plugin for those running giveaways on their blogs.
If you host giveaways and run your blog on wordpress the Giveaway Countdown Plugin would be a great investment. Right now you can get it for $15 and when you sign up for the newsletter you will also get free updates! Trust me you won’t be disappointed with this plugin, it saves so much time, you don’t have to remember to update your current giveaway list on the sidebar no more.
