50 Follower Contest Results

I am stunned! I had no idea how successful my little contest was going to be and I am amazed at how awesome my followers were in helping get the word out about this blog. Now that the contest is over I have sooooo many writerly things I wish to address. But for now, I'm sure you are all waiting at the edge of your seat to see if you are a winner.

Well, I'm going to tease you a bit. I think this calls for a shout-out to everybody who participated as my way of saying THANK YOU and YOU ROCK MY WORLD. Okay, if you really just want to see who won then scroll down to the bottom.

Thank you to everybody who participated!!

Thank you, everybody, for your participation. My biggest fear is that I missed somebody but I tried to be as thorough as possible. If I did miss somebody, please chastise me in the comments and I'll find some way of making it up to you.

And, just so you know, I follow everybody mentioned above and I highly recommend ANYBODY else to do the same.

So now, the big winners. First place, for the $20 Gift Card to Amazon.com, from a Facebook entry is...


And in second place, for the $5 Cold Stone Creamery gift care, from another Facebook entry is...


Thank you, everybody, again. I cannot express my appreciation on how well this worked. I can't wait to do it again when I get to 100 followers. Please keep spreading the word.
