March's Giveaway [CLOSED]
Spring is almost upon us and the weather is about to get warmer. It's time to let good things grow with a nice giveaway! Before we get to that, let's take a look at what I've been up to. I'm getting married! Tyler (my fiance) and I have chosen March 29th, 2014 as our tentative date and our colours are the springiest - daffodil yellow and spring green! I do love the colours of spring. I haven't had much chance to work on Autodidactivist, but I hope to get around to it soon. Have you heard of UnCollege? I am giving away a $30 Amazon GC to one lucky winner that is a member of the UnCollege Network. If you're interested, check it out here on Autodidactivist. Okay, okay, let's get to the prizes!
Two Grand Prize winners will be lucky enough to win 1000 points and a 3-month Premium Membership. That's a total of 2000 points and 6 months of free Premium Membership!
