Back in the New Year and other explanations

     Hey everyone, I just wanted to give you an update on why my blog hasn't had a whole lot of action lately. I haven't posted anything in the last week or so due to my account being hacked! Along with my blogger account, my email and rafflecopter accounts were hacked as well. I am assuming it was due to the awesome giveaways we were having and the very nasty emails I started getting because I wasn't willing to "rig" the giveaways. This is not the end of Sparkling Reviews. I am working on adding a little bit of added security to the account and my other accounts linked to the blog as well. I am not going to allow the antics of a few people ruin it for everyone else.

     In the new year we will be having some more great giveaways, which will begin on 12/31 on Twitter and move onto the blog on the 1st. I will also have more great book reviews and much more. Thank you for all of you that have out waited the down time. I will have the winners posted to the giveaways on the 1st as well. 

Hope to see you all in the new year!

  1. That is a bummer that some one(s) would stoop so low as to that. Hope you are able to get everything all sorted out.

    Hope 2012 will be better than the end of 2011. =)

  8. Me too! I am so sorry that people are rude/unkind/nasty and hack your stuff. That is just plain mean.
    But thank you for giving away neat stuff. And thanks for still wanting to have neat giveaways-even though you had someone be mean!
