Happy almost-weekend everyone! I wanted to take this opportunity to do a little housekeeping on the blog, namely to share my latest Book Chat link-up, introduce my new Twitter account and promote a giveaway.

First, my weekly Book Chat link-up with Sweet Green Tangerine. Today's topic is Favorite Female of Fiction, so I'm reusing this old post from my 30-Day Book Challenge. I also wanted to share the adorable button Jessica made for this week's Book Chat. Click on it to check out the other posts in the link-up:

Second, as you might or might not have noticed, Semi-Charmed Kind of Life now has its own Twitter account. My primary reason for making this account was to be able to separate my blog-related social media from my personal tweets. If you already follow my personal account, don't feel obligated to follow @SemiCharmedKoL, as I will probably retweet most of the good stuff on my personal account. I do plan to use my blog's Twitter account to promote giveaways, interact with other bloggers and occasionally crowd-source ideas and/or ask for advice, so feel free to follow both if you wish. :) Do you have separate Twitter accounts for yourself and your blog? How has that been working out?

Finally, speaking of giveaways, Fake Rain is giving away a $10 Target card and $5 Starbucks card for reaching 100 followers on GFC (congrats, girl!). Enter here by June 2. This isn't the only 100-follower giveaway I've seen lately (Sigh...Gush...Gasp's just ended), and it's been getting me thinking that maybe I should host my first giveaway when if I reach 100 followers on GFC. So tell me: What are your favorite items to see in giveaways? Do you prefer Rafflecopter or another method? Futhermore, would anyone be interested in helping me make this a group giveaway when if the time comes?

Thanks for reading all my little housekeeping bits today. I'll try to write up something more interesting to post this weekend. :)

In giveaways I love seeing ad space on bigger blogs combined with physical items (gift cards, jewelry, etc). I prefer a combo of these items because even after the free ad space is gone, I still have something to keep reminding me I won the giveaway.

Also, I would love to help you make it a group giveaway. Just let me know what I need to do! :)
