As this is only my 4th entry, it is easy to tell that i have put off blogging for way to long. However, I have been on facebook and twitter for a while now – and I love it! It has helped me to find local shops, sales, designers and hear about local news as it happens.
In an attempt to support local businesses I follow their social media efforts. Well…this week it paid off in a big way! I won two contests… that’s right 2!
1. By following Laura Ashley USA on twitter I was placed into their 5-day contest, A WEEK OF THANKS. I was chosen the first day and won a new rug! I just love it at my front door! Follow Laura Ashley: twitter / facebook
2. Animal Medical Hospital also has an online contest and because I follow them on Facebook, I was automatically entered. After finding on out Monday about the Laura Ashley contest, I found out on Tuesday that I won the monthly contest for AMH! While I do not personally have a pet, I am sure my parents two dogs are just going to LOVE their free gifts – I won a giftcard that I can use in the store!
