So, I recently awarded someone a T-shirt as the second prize place in that contest (you know, the one where I wrote a short story featuring an actual fan and Mina?) and that got me thinking. I love those shirts. I have a shirt myself featuring the vampire squirrel because EVERYONE needs a cuddly little fanged creature in their life, right?
And I was thinking about how pathetic I’ve been on Twitter lately. A lot of that is the time difference thing. By the time things are really getting going in the US, I’m going to bed over here in the UK. Not that I haven’t found some cool new people to follow over here, but still most of my following list are tweeps from across the pond. My feed is pretty quiet until everyone over there wakes up. And, um, hey…most of the writers I know don’t really seem to be morning people. Ahem. (me either) So they’re pretty quiet until late.
I could do every 1000 mark, but that takes so long…and I have an itch to give stuff away.
Maybe that’s the tea talking.
Anyway, I’m at 1,370 followers right now. First T-shirt given away at 1,500.
The Full Details (since I am so spectacularly vague and tend to blather on above):
- Every time I hit a multiple of 500 followers (i.e. 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, etc.) up until I hit (a pie in the sky number, but hey, let’s dream) 10,000 followers (my hubby says I have to put a limit or he’ll be mad at me), I will give away a T-shirt from my Spreadshirt shop.
- Winner will be drawn from among all followers (new and old).
- Winner can choose whichever design they like in whatever color they like.
If I actually do surpass 10,000 followers, I’ll have to think of something big to do…
