Ok, so if you're not a Facebook fan yet, or if you are but you were hiding under a rock this past weekend, then you missed a HUGE and exciting event. The Facebook page gained over 1,200 new fans over the weekend, 1,000 of them in less than 24 hours! Can you believe that?!? To say I was in complete and total shock is an understatement since it had taken 4 months just to climb up to 300, and almost over night we're over 1,500!
Here's how it went down. Earlier that day I posted a question asking what the interest would be in me doing a few good ol' country cookin' posts. I had been checking in on my phone periodically to see what the response was. We put the kiddos to bed at 8pm, I checked in, nothing out of the ordinary, I went and took my shower and literally, 30 minutes later I checked in again and had 253 new followers and 23 new notifications! I almost fell over. I thought for sure I had been hacked, but the numbers just kept climbing right before my eyes! Finally, I posted a question to find out where in the world all this new traffic was coming from. Turns out, another Facebook page, Two Women and a Hoe, posted a picture of the watering can shower head from our cabin visit back in June. They have over 87,000 followers and a nice big chunk of 'em came over to visit and decided to stay awhile! So a HUGE thank you to them for posting my picture!
So....we are celebrating this humongo influx of new fans with a
$25 gift card for Hobby Lobby.
(Please do NOT leave me comments voicing your opinion against Hobby Lobby or against me for supporting them. I've had enough hatred spewed at me on the Facebook page over this issue and I will not tolerate it nor will I debate it. This is not a political blog and we will not argue. Any political/hateful/argumentative comments will be immediately deleted just like they were on Facebook. If you don't agree with me or with Hobby Lobby then don't enter the giveaway. I choose to support them. It's my blog and my Facebook page, and I have the right to run it the way I see fit. If you don't like it, you know where the "unlike" button is.)
Ok, now that a little housekeeping has been done, here are the "rules." If you are not already, you must become either a follower of the blog and/or a fan of the Facebook page to enter. You can gain more entries by doing the other things, but they are not required.
a Rafflecopter giveaway
It will end on Saturday at midnight.
Thank you so very much to all of my followers and fans who were already along with me, and thank you and welcome to all the new fans!
Good luck everyone!
