The majority of you like the entry form much better for various reasons. There were a few people who agreed that they sometimes wonder if I got their entry via the entry form though. So, I am keeping the entry form because I too agree it is simpler for everyone.
For those of you who would like a confirmation that I did receive your entry for a particular giveaway, just leave a comment saying so on the actual blog post along with your email and I will gladly do so.
Thanks again for your input! Let me know if there are ever any other questions or concerns.
