Web Weekend #14

This was one heck of a crazy week. The turnout for Giveaway Week was INSANE, and I really hope that at least a few of those lovely people stick around. I really enjoyed chatting with you all.

This week I am boasting 448 subscriptions, although I rather expect that that number will decrease a bit in the coming weeks.

Remember you can follow me on Pinterest  or on Tumblr for nearly-daily fun and flailing. Check the right side of the page for a list of all the places you can find me.
