The Winner of the $50 Gift Card to F'Amelia is....


Congratulations! =D Please email me at with your mailing address. I will then forward your info to F'Amelia (they will be mailing you the gift card). Congrats again and I hope you will enjoy your gift card at F'Amelia!

I also want to say a big THANKS to the 86 contestants who participated in the giveaway! 

To ensure my followers that I am 100% honest when I say the winner is picked RANDOMLY, I will always show you guys how I went about tracking each contest. Even though my contests in the future may not be exactly the same as this one, be rest assured that I will go through the same process with due diligence ^_^

Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #FameliaGC stream from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person who entered right the contest. To enter, the person has to tweet "I want to win a $50 gift certificate to @FAmeliaRisto! #FameliaGC". Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for in my spreadsheet, I went to check if they actually followed me on Twitter (I also sent the below list of contestants to F'Amelia for them to look over).

After weeding out the people that did not follow both F'Amelia and I on Twitter, I was left with 64 contestants. I went to "True Random Number Generator" from to randomly pick a winner for me from 1 to 64.

Contests are always fun, yes? Next giveaway coming verrrrrry soon! ^_^
