Thank you so much to everyone who participated in my Recovery Sock® Giveaway. I see the trick to getting 100+ comments on a post is giving away free stuff. :)

Here's how I selected the winner.

First, I entered your names in an Excel spreadsheet once for every entry you earned.

Then I entered random numbers in the cell beside each entry using
these instructions.

Then I sorted the random numbers in numerical order, thereby re-sorting your names into random order.

Then I used to generate a number between 1 and 162 (total number of entries).

And the corresponding winner in my trusty Excel spreadsheet is...

Thanks again to everyone for playing along and special thanks to Recovery Sock for sponsoring this giveaway.
