StudentSavingBucks 11 Month Blogiversary!

 ~~~~Its Student Saving Buck's 11-Month Blogiversary!~~~~

What a LONG 11 months these have been :) In 11 months I've received 154,238+ page hits, 1,086+ Google Friend Connect Followers, 565+ Facebook Fans and 857+ Twitter Followers. I am very thankful for my growing number of readers :) I love all your comments and emails and helpful suggestions! As i mentioned during this last month, we had a terrible thing happen earlier in te month. Our dog was stolen and we were devastated. We ended up getting a new puppy, Spock. About 10 days later I received a call from AVID letting me know our dog was found 20min. away. So now we have a BIG family, with 3 dogs we adore with all our hearts! I truly thank all of you for your kind comments and emails at the time giving up hope.

As you guys know, I hosted a giveaway for a $100 Target Gift Card during my 6th Blogiversary, and had a 4 Gift Card giveaway during my 8th Blogiversary. These giveaways are exiting as I get to give back to you guys :) For StudenSavingBucks' 10 Month Blogiversary I had a $50 Target Gift Card giveaway and I'm sure you're all DYING to know who won... 

#192 - Angela P.
Winner was chosen via Random.org. Congrats! Look out for my email in your inbox!

This past month I have steadily been posting my usual posts and will try to make some more time to continue my "Cooking With Ai Mei" and other personal posts. Things are just crazy busy with school and 3 dogs. Next month will be Student Saving Bucks' 1-YEAR Blogiversary! I'm hoping to get some great giveaways lined up for then for you guys!

So much to look forward to so I hope you all stay with me a little longer :
