And The Winner Is …
As some of you may know, we announced a contest on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. When we reached 600 subscribers we were going to give away a prize pack. We reached our goal fairly quickly. When we rolled over to 600, I went to Random.org. It’s a website that will pick a random number for you That number was 560. The 560th subscriber was Jacque Stanford. We sent out an email and got a response from Jacque about where to mail the prize packet. This will be going out in the next day or so:
These are some of my favorite items from past blogs, Favorites,, Suddenly Sensitive Skin, Adventures in Hair Care Products. And I also enclosed a repurposed ketchup bottle filled with The Skirt Girl Super Lotion. My mother even made a cute, little label to go on the front of it. You know…that’s what moms do!
We were having so much fun with this giveaway, that we decided we would do another soon. When we reached 500,000 views that would be a number to celebrate. A milestone. When we started the 600 subscriber contest we were at about 460,000 views or so. I thought we would get our 600 subscribers and have a couple of weeks to gear up and push the half million contest. But only a couple of days after we reached 600 subscribers, and before Jacque had even responded to our email, this happened:
We burst through the half million mark! We were all so excited! At this point, I should tell you who I’m referring to when I say “we.” I have family and friends who are my cheering section. They have all been so supportive. My best friend, since we were five, has been, not only the cheerleader, but the encourager, adviser and the person to tell me to snap out of it when I don’t know what to do next. She’s the one who says “yes you can” when I’m saying “I can’t.” When we started talking about doing a giveaway, she said “Let me help!” She has shared and shared and shared on social media. There is no doubt in my mind that the half million viewers would have never happened without her. I have several other friends who have jumped in and offered advise and counsel to me, during this learning process. And whew! I have needed it!
So, you might ask, what is next for The Skirt Girl? Well, my answer would be….a LOT! We are working to streamline the website and make it more user-friendly for you. In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m not a web builder. At. All. So, I’m getting a little help…ok …a lot of help. Seriously, I’m being saved! Someone who does know about web building is working on it for me! The Skirt Girl is getting a makeover. But don’t worry, it’s still me! We are going to be having some more giveaways. Maybe when we hit 750,000 in views. Or, perhaps, 1,000 subscribers. And I intend on some surprise giveaways along the way. I’ll be letting you know here, but you can also like The Skirt Girl on Facebook to keep up with daily news and tidbits for fun!
