june giveaway

It’s taken me a couple of years but I have finally made it to 5000 Twitter followers! Woot! I know that may seem like a minuscule amount to most bloggers but I haven’t really done anything to gain followers other than follow other people and add the option to my giveaway posts! (I lie, I did try this legit auto-follower thingy-ma-jig for a few months but it didn’t do much and it was a pain so I stopped using it) Now when I get to 5000 on Facebook, then I’ll really be celebrating! 

So here’s an “I-love-you-so-much-because-you’re-all-awesome-and-cool-and-you-like-me” giveaway for all of my Twitter followers! You’ll get a bunch of extra entry options just because and the lucky winner will get $25.00 cash sent to their PayPal! Yay!

(if you want to enter and don’t do PayPal, then you have the option of receiving a $25 Amazon.com gift card instead, I don’t want to leave anyone out!)

Win $25.00 cash via PayPal!

Thanks to all of my AWESOME Twitter followers one lucky readers will win twenty five buck. WooHoo!
