Win a £25 Amazon Voucher – April

Happy April! You may have noticed I have been really quiet so far this month and for that I am sorry. I normally have some back up ready for when I go downhill, but I used it all up a few weeks ago and was caught off guard by a nasty cold.

Win a £25 Amazon Voucher – April

Win a £25 Amazon Voucher - April

So I thought I would ease myself back in gently with competition Wednesday and quite a quick-fire post from me, which allows one of you to win a £25 Amazon voucher!

So how can you win? Well, all you need to do is leave me a comment letting me know what your plans for April are? Do you have anything exciting on the cards? I would LOVE to hear all about you as I love getting to know more about my readers.

As always the only mandatory entry is to leave me a comment.

Just as I've seen a lot of talk in the comping circles about the no daily tweet on Gleam and is it a bug? I can tell you it isn't. Twitter are tightening their rules and could see such daily tweets as spam, as you are sending out the same text and URL daily. As Gleam use an API, they themselves have to deal with this issue directly and have removed the option from all of their applications. On the other hand, Rafflecopter doesn't have their own API and so dealing with the issue falls on the bloggers head. Rafflecopter are telling users what they should be doing is telling entrants to write their own tweet, so you may see bloggers asking you to write your own daily tweets if they use RC, please think about doing this if you want to carry on tweeting daily for an entry. After all, it is not only the blogger who may fall into issues, but you yourself may find your twitter account shadow banned if you are daily tweeting the same thing. I hope that helps a little in explaining the changes in daily tweets.

Back to my competition:
