New GiftRAK winners!

As promised, here is a list of this round's winners, in the order they get to select their gifts. Woo Hoo!

1. Rachel M, who posted a comment on June 22
2. mands****
3. A****
4. Tammy, who posted a comment on June 11.

For the subscribers I already have their e-mail addresses (redacted here to protect their privacy). Since I do not have the commenter's e-mail, I will need Rachel M. and Tammy to contact me at Then, as soon as I have a camera and can take some photos, I will e-mail you your choice of gifts, starting with Rachel.

Congrats everyone but bear with me please, it may take a little while. So far my research has not led me to a camera I like, and I'm actually contemplating buying the same model off e-bay. I'm familiar with it and like it, and it's perfect for my needs. I'm just a little reluctant to trust e-bay to come through a working camera for me. What do you think? I could use some advice (keeping in mind that a latest and greatest camera with all the bells and whistles is not in the budget right now)!

Thanks again everyone for supporting me and the blog! Thanks to you I have a blast posting. As always, feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail with any suggestions on how I could improve the blog. Thanks!

I don't have any advise on camera models, but I've had pretty good luck with buying things off Ebay. I've done it for years and I can't think of any time I got burned. It's a great place to find some very good deals. Just do you research. Check the feedback and pick a seller who looks to have a lot of positives and few or no negatives and you should be just fine. Don't go with someone with less than 100 positives (inexperienced), or more than 10 negatives (flaky). In fact, the laptop I'm using now came from Ebay a couple of years ago and it's been fabulous!
