    Thanks so much guys! When I started writing, I found that I kept thinking of new things that I wanted to also write… maybe I could’ve been a journalist in another life :D

    It cost me $130 to mail your tablet to Australia. That’s the reason we don’t often do international giveaways, but glad you get to enjoy the Nexus 7.

      Thanks so much Taylor, you have no idea how unbelievably grateful I am right now.

      I have a wild idea that probably wouldn’t work, but perhaps in the future you could try something like adding a stipulation that any international winners are to pay for part/all of the shipping costs? That way, you guys can still keep the giveaways open to more than just the US and more people can join in on the fun. I’m sure that the readers would be more than happy to cover the shipping costs if they won. Even if they refuse to do that after they won, you could always just give the prize to the next best/lucky entry.

      I’m sure there are probably logistical issues with that idea, but I thought I’d throw it out there anyway.

      Thanks again!
