NEW CONTEST (win a ROBERT PATTINSON or TAYLOR LAUTNER Autograph!)

I simply do not know what to say.
Just two days ago, I put my new Twilight Youtube Contest Of Awesome up, for a Robert Pattinson autograph, which would be given away to anyone who is subscribed to my Youtube channel. I said I would give it away when I hit 10,000 subscribers. I was at 9,000, and it had taken me nearly 9 months to get there. I posted the video, and then figured it would take me about a week to get the next 1,000, and I could go back to bed and rest this weekend.
Yet again, for at least the hundredth time since joining this fandom, I severely underestimated Twilighters.
Within the space of five hours, I not only reached 10,000 subscribers, but passed it, and got all the way to 13,000. My inbox was receiving so many new subscriber messages, Gmail throttled my account so I didn’t jam their servers. There were so many, even when I tried to catch subscriber 12,345, people were subscribing so fast, I missed the number because I refreshed a half second too late!
So, despite the fact I hadn’t even gotten out of bed (it was Saturday sheesh!) I knew I couldn’t make people wait an entire week! I got up and ready for a live BlogTV show that evening, where I announced the Robert Pattinson autograph winner, and also gave away a Peter Facinelli autograph from Twicon and two t-shirts from TwilightTShirts.com! Best part of the night was when someone informed me I was being broadcast on the front page of HisGoldenEyes.com! The 10,000 subscriber party was a total blast.
I still don’t know what to say, except to thank everyone and especially Lauren at the Twilight Facebook page, who posted a notice about the contest to 1.5 million people, something that almost single-handedly caused this rush. My entire goal for the year was to reach 10,000. What do I do now?!
I know exactly what to do now. There is only one way to thank my subscribers, and that is to give more stuff away that you love! THUS, WELCOME TO THE:
TWILIGHT YOUTUBE CONTEST OF AWESOME III!
WIN an autographed photo of TAYLOR LAUTNER
or ROBERT PATTINSON
ALL of my Youtube subscribers are automagically entered to win one of these. When I reach 20,000 subscribers, I will give them both away, plus more stuff as I get it (understandably, I didn’t have much time to prepare for this one!). I got a bunch of emails from Team Jacob people who felt left out on the last one: and this way, everyone should be happy!
Thanks again to everyone who subscribed and really made my year 😀
