And the winner of my 700+ Twitter Follower Giveaway is…


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

I remember the first time I opened up my Twitter account and broke out a sweat trying to figure out what to write. I knew it had to be succinct and extraordinary in only 140 characters and had to in some way express to the Twitterverse that I was indeed an intelligent, witty, and at the very least, interesting person! (Oh, I was so self-conscious, then.)

500 tweets later, I stopped biting my nails in hopes of reaching at least 50 followers to feel some kind of validation for my Twitter presence.

And then I met other bloggers, entered some Twitter contests, and slowly, but surely became obsessed with blog hops…and tada!

11,248 tweets later, a few of you noticed me and said,

Okay. I’ll follow this bookaholic.

So, thank you, Twitter devotees! Having 700+ followers (and what I consider to be social network, Twitter friends) makes me feel that my own feelings of self-worth aren’t entirely delusional.

I still believe in quality over quantity, but there are enough of you now to make me want to blow a couple of balloons, throw some confetti, and howl out loud like the madwoman that I really am (thanks for giving me the right excuse!).

While I can’t give everyone presents, the least I can do is give one person some joy by receiving a package in the mail!

Here’s the prize of mystery SWAG for one of my followers:
