| | Collecting flowers from friends vs. strangers
I have one main account that I have had for about 4 or 5 years now. Because I am Gifted and trade through the Gift Exchange, my phone is full of contacts of people I consider friends. Most of these people I have traded with and so have had conversations with and I feel like I kind of know them. After all, they are all fellow Webkinz Insiders.
I just recently opened a new account just so I could collect duplicate prizes when they are only awarded once per day per account. This account had no friends on it.
When the flower sending activity started, I wanted to win the gazebo on both accounts, so on the new account, I took advantage of the option to make myself available to new friends and every day I sent out requests for the maximum number of friends. Then I started requesting and sending flowers. I though that my odds of receiving flowers would be better on my first account, since I had formed cyber relationships with these people on WI. I didn't know how responsive the new contacts would be on my new account, since I had no idea who these people were and they did not know me.
I am so pleasantly surprised that my new friends are just as responsive in accepting requests and in sending flowers as my good old WI friends. My new account has just 5 fewer flowers than my old account, and I attribute that to the few days it took me to set up a list of new friends.
What do you all think of my experience?
