birthday extravaganza

I briefly hinted at this a couple of weeks ago, and now I finally get to make the official announcement -

I will be turning 26 on April 14th, and as part of my 25 before 26 list, I have a goal of reaching a certain number of readers by my 26th birthday. I've made quite a bit of progress in the last few weeks, but I'm nowhere near where I'd like to be! I know there are a lot of you out there who frequent my blog but haven't become official followers yet, so to entice you I've decided to bribe you host my first giveaway!!!

what you can win:
One of TWO $25 e-gift cards to
BONUS: If there are 40+ individual entries, I will give away a $10 e-gift card 
in addition to the two $25 cards.
BONUS: If there are 150+ individual entries, I will give away a $50 e-gift card 
in addition to the two $25 cards and the $10 card.
Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell the supermarket clerk! 
The more entries there are, the more chances to win and bigger scores to haul!

when you can enter:
The giveaway is open from RIGHT NOW until 12:01am on April 16th, 2012 (through the end of my birthday weekend!). This gives you a little over two weeks, and there are daily entries available - the sooner you enter, the more chances you have!
Winner will be chosen through Rafflecopter and notified via email within three days.

how you can play:
+3 entries: Follow my blog via Google Friend Connect, Bloglovin' or subscribe via email. 
All three are available in the right column under "stalk me". (mandatory)
+3 entries: Leave a comment on this post and tell me HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (mandatory)
+2 entries: "Like" frayed threads on Facebook.
+2 entries: Follow me (@fashion_nerd13) on Twitter.
+1 entry: Post about this giveaway on your blog. 
Blog post must remain within top two entries for at least 24 hours to count, and you must leave me the link! You can do this every day too - just a link at the beginning/middle/end is fine :)
+1 entry: Tweet about this giveaway - do this daily for extra entries! 
Make sure you use the tweet text included in Rafflecopter - it contains a link to this giveaway and my handle.
+1 entry: Follow me on Chictopia.
+1 entry: Follow me on Pinterest.
+1 entry: Add me to your "Following" circle on Google+

I know that's a lot to take in - think you've got it? That's 15 possible entries (not counting the extras for daily entries) with up to FOUR possible prizes! And remember, only the top two entries are required, so after that feel free to do as many (or as few) as you want!

Make sure to submit all entries through the Rafflecopter widget below, and don't forget to come back every day to tweet or blog about this giveaway and get extra entries!

In the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of my 25 before 26 list - recently optimized for completion within two weeks, and let me know what you think. Do you have a similar list, or do you take more of a live-life-as-it-comes approach?

New to the blog? Let's get to know each other! Leave me a comment or send me an email, and be sure to get the scoop and check out some of my favorite posts:

Our Tennessee Titan Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two plastic D-rings for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpole or tailgate pole. The perimeter of our Tennessee Titan Flag is double stitched and the Tennessee Titan team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel.
