The winner of my Milestone Giveaway is a ticket from a blog post
Congratulations Annalie, let me know your choice of prize and where to send it....e-mail address for the gift certificate, physical address for the jewelry.
I also pulled two more tickets :)
And I will be sending $25 Gift Certificates to the following people
Wanda (the first Wanda who commented on my blog)
If you ladies would send me your e-mail address I'll get your gift certificates out to you :)
Now if you didn't win this time.....here's the deal:
When I reach 400 followers there will be a $40 gift certificate just for people who comment on my blog between now and then, commenting on a post gets you a ticket...so you have multiple chances to win, one ticket per blog post...(so if you comment more than once on one post you still just get one ticket).
When I reach 500 there will be a $50 GC.....same rules.
I'll increase the prize $10 per extra 100 followers until I have 1000, then it will be $100 for every 100 over 1000.
For my store:
As this is my livelihood my sales pay my bills and I have to make a certain amount each month to keep the bill collectors away :)
So....whenever I reach my sales goal for the month I will give a $50 Gift Certificate to someone who helped me reach that goal....so each time you shop (different days) you will get a ticket to win.
When I feel I'm winning I want to share :)
Ok...so now to the not so great news.
Some of you will know I had a hell week with my internet.
Apparently an upgrade was released for my access manager and it corrupted my modem. I had been thinking all the solar flares were messing with my connection but no....my modem was dying.
I figure I lost about 30 hours to fixing the problem, talked to 6 phone support people....for about 5 hours total, 7 visits to the store ....totaling about 10 hours, and all the stress made me too tired to work when I wasn't talking on the phone (something, if you know me... I hate) or running around to the store twice a day. So....I am about two days behind with work...still beading the project I'm scheduled to write the tutorial for this week and I still have about 5 pages to write for the Lace Cufflette which was scheduled for release last Friday :(
Still....my new mobile hotspot is working fine now and I definitely owe thanks to Jeremy Brooks at the Verizon store in St George, UT for going to bat for me when other members of staff were rolling their eyes, obviously willing me out of the store and were totally unsympathetic to my situation....which was caused by their technical people. Jeremy is one of the good guys who believe in doing the right thing and convinced his managers to do the same.
So...if you need anything Verizon in St George....Jeremy is your guy!
Now, hopefully, we will return to normal programming :)
Have a great Sunday people!
