I have had follower goals for several years. Mine for YouTube is to reach 10,000 followers.

Why specifically 10,000?

In Toronto, YouTube has a Creator Studio. When you reach 1,000 subscribers you get invited to events. When you reach 10,000 you get invited to workshops, seminars, etc and you can learn how to create better videos by YouTube themselves.

My goal this year is to increase my video content creation so I can reach that goal.

To celebrate each mini-milestone, I decided to give away prizes (duh! I AM the Contest Queen!) to thank everyone and it gives you an opportunity to practice entering on various platforms.

Right, now I am hosting a giveaway on my YouTube channel. The rules are in the description, but it’s easy as you only have to like the video and comment.


SHORT RULES: Win one (1) $25 Amazon gift card in the currency in the country in which you reside (ARV $25). Open worldwide. Ends at 11:59 pm ET on Saturday, March 27th, 2021. Entries only accepted in the YouTube video comments.


Have your notifications turned on! It is also good to get into the habit of checking all your social channel notifications and inboxes once per day. I know people who have missed out on prizes because they didn’t look.
