The Inaugural Giveaway: $25 Amazon.com gift card {CLOSED}

Wow, I feel like I've just given birth to my 3rd child!

This review blog has been a glimmer in my eye for many months now. After one half-hearted attempt, I finally got my ducks in a row and hooked up with a great blog designer to bring you Queen of the Castle Reviews!

I like to get things started with a bang! I'm in the process of putting together some wonderful product & service reviews for my readers, but in the meantime, let's do a giveaway to get this party started!

I am a huge fan of online shopping and my absolutely favorite site is Amazon.com.



I can't tell you how many times I have used this site to shop for just about everything under the sun! I could seriously gush about Amazon for days, but let's get to the good stuff already.

I am giving away a $25 Gift Card to Amazon! This giveaway is 100% sponsored by me. Amazon has no idea who I am, only that they see orders from me way too often. To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment on this post. Any comment will do. Since I am still putting the finishing touches on my castle here, any ideas that you have about things you would like to see or not like to see would be great!

For additional entries, please leave a SEPARATE comment for each additional entry.

1 entry for becoming a follower of mine on Twitter

1 entry for becoming a Facebook Fan

1 entry for becoming a Follower of this blog (the widget is over there on the left side)

1 entry per day for tweeting this giveaway (please leave your tweet url in the comment)

The giveaway will end on Sunday, May 9th at 11:59pm ET. Winner will be chosen by random.org and the winner will be contacted immediately. Winner has 48 hours to respond with shipping information or an alternate winner will be chosen. If your email address is not linked to your blogger profile, PLEASE leave your email address in your comments. If I cannot contact you, you can't win.

Good luck everyone and welcome to my castle!
