So close to 50 Followers…potential giveaway?!?!?

Ok, so I’m this close to finishing up my first big super amazing fun unit to actually, maybe sell on TpT.  BUT, I would really like to have a giveaway with it as well.  I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers have giveaways when they hit a follower milestone. 


It’s humbling to see how many followers some bloggers have – even newbie bloggers.  I am chugging away at blogging, and slowly figuring it all out, but I’m not a power blogger yet, and I’m definitely NOT good at self-promotion, so I am building followers slowly and steadily.  I’m always THRILLED when I see I have a new follower. 


I’m hoping I can hit 50 followers PRONTO, so I can have my first giveaway!  I’ve been working hard on a unit that is great for the end of the year, Cinco de Mayo, summer school, etc.  I’ve given away a couple of freebies from it, but it has SOOOOOO much more!  Here is just a quick pic. of what it looks like:

Was that a shameless enough attempt at self-promotion?  I hope so!
