I discovered author Angela Kulig on the KDP community forum.
When I checked out her website, I was a AMAZED to see an epic giveaway featuring a Kindle Paperwhite.
Wow! Now that’s a giveaway.
I guess that’s how you celebrate having 25,000 Twitter followers.
Double wow! I’m blessed to have 3,000 followers here at WordPress (here are 3,000 THANK YOU’s for all 3,000 of you). 25,000 is incredible.
(By the way, Angela has no idea that I’m writing this post.)
You might want to enter Angela’s contest. If you’d like a chance to win a Kindle Paperwhite. (Just click the picture for this post.)
You might want to check out Angela’s social media pages while you’re at it.
What are you planning for your 25,000 follower celebration?
I tell you, if I reach 25,000 followers, that would excite me enough to give a similar epic giveaway. 🙂 Heck, I’m already very excited with 3,000.
I remember when I had 3 followers, and 30, and 300. I thought it would take decades to reach 3,000 here at WordPress. But it didn’t!
Wherever you are, you’ll probably get much further along faster than you think.
Want to create your own contest? Well, you don’t have to give away a Paperwhite. At least, not until you reach 25,000 followers, apparently. 🙂
Check out Rafflecopter: http://www.rafflecopter.com. (Be sure to check out all the details before you sign up for a giveaway. It would probably be wise to enter a few contests first, and to find a few authors who’ve done this and ask them about it.)
You know what else would be wise? Starting with small prizes and learning how to do that with mild success before working your way up to larger prizes. The greater the prize, the greater your risk.

25k may be too much if you give something material as enticement?
kindle fire is better. i’d follow for a fire, except i have one.
it’s seems like a numbers game.
kim kardasian has 3 million twitter followers.
she wins uber all due to her excessive……talent. 😉
maybe the best bloggers have the least followers?
you do however deserve your 3k and thankfully are not going to give me a fire or a ms. kardasian’s latest book, “vain.”
Maybe the best have your photography skills and charm. 🙂
When I saw the contest and 25k, my first thought was on the correlation. But then I looked at the tweet activity and decide that this may be more celebratory. As enticement, it wouldn’t seem easily cost-effective. Perhaps the contest could help build buzz or advertise a promotion.
25K is great, but 3k is equally awesome…!
Thank you. 🙂 Even the very first one was awesome (and then every one more along the way). Finding a new follower never gets old.
