Important Alert: Email Spam

Hi guys, just a quick post...

Stavroula has unfortunately brought to my attention that a bot of some kind has gotten emails from one of my giveaway posts (or something) and has started spamming my followers' emails. I have 3 people, including myself, saying that they've received an email from "jane jane.markb@yahoo.ca" with a title of "Hello Friend" saying they got your email from my website. I did not give anyone's emails out... just to let you know.

Regardless, do not open this email, do not respond, simply delete it. I use Yahoo and it went immediately to my spam filter. I wanted to let everyone know. I am going to go in and delete any giveaway entries that did not use the someone at yahoo dot com format for their email.

I'm really sorry guys!!!
