Burn It Incentive

I know a lot of people have complained that they send out their Burn It CDs only to never receive anything from anyone in their group. Since I've started requiring people to send me a copy of their CD as well, I've noticed that more CDs are being sent out, but it's still not 100% (and honestly, with Christine and Mike's wedding, getting kidney stones, and getting prepared for job interviews, I haven't sent mine out yet).

Today, while noting whose CDs came in the mail, I came up with a little incentive that might make people send their CDs out quicker. What I'm going to do is this - the first group that I receive all four CDs from gets a copy of my CD. (This obviously leaves my group out, but if they get theirs to me quickly, I might send them an older version. We'll see.)

Hopefully people will be so psyched about getting the organizer's CD that they'll rush to the mailbox as soon as they get their mailing list. Okay, so I'm delusional, but it was the best thing tht I could come up with. :-) So far no group's gotten all of theirs to me, though I have three out of four for four groups. If you haven't mailed your Spring 2004 Edition out, get cracking; maybe you'll get an extra CD!

With all my boy drama, and having been out of town last weekend, and just being very slacktastic all week, mine just went out today. I didn't send them media rate, so they should get to everyone by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. *hugs*

hmmm - but since ALL of us have you in "our group", how would we know that we were the lucky ones - as opposed to just a member of your group?

(yeah, I'm trying to hide the fact that mine are sitting in envelopes in a stack by the door...)

gah... sorry. i was bad this time. the cds have been burned for weeks but i need to buy cases. my only excuse is that i just moved across the country (pittsburgh to san francisco) and everythings a mess as i haven't quite settled in yet.

You sure know how to make a girl wish she had a CD burner!

I think that's a cool idea!

I hope you got mine, Kymberlie...I mailed them over a week ago. I mailed an extra copy to a friend in California, the same day I mailed all the others, and she told me she got it.

I completely understand about yours and the new Mrs. CoffeeCorner's CDs...I'll get them when they get here! :-)

So when is the *next* one? I signed up too late for this most recent one and am raring to go!

.: Michael said on June 6, 2004 12:48 AM :: link it :.

woot! i got two of my cd's... but i definitely like your idea! (and i felt bad because i didn't mail mine out until june 1st!!!) ;)

guilty as charged. mine have been burned and i printed the covers today, but i still need to find the mailing envelopes. they should go out by the end of the week. but i still have only received one other CD from my group!

Hey, I really want to sign up for a CD swap! What do I do? Can somebody please email me and let me know where to start? Thanks! :) ncradit@cityofclare.org

Today I finally got the last one from my group, and I sent mine out a few weeks ago, so our group is complete! Did you get all of ours? Do we get to be the grand prize winners?? :)

.: Icyshard said on June 12, 2004 03:06 PM :: link it :.

i suck this time. i'm usually really good about it, but i've been so busy. but FINALLY i've got them all printed, burned, addressed and ready to go to the post office tomorrow. :-(
