The Golden Snitch: A Geeky Giveaway
Hello dear readers!!
Earlier this month I found an awesome lady that had a lot of common interests with me so I decided to grab a sponsor spot on her blog, which has been an awesome option for me! She has been super sweet and helpful (She even emailed me a suggestion she had for me!) and we've corresponded over email several times. I absolutely love her blog and I can't wait to get to know her better! ((Since we live just a state away from each other, I hope I can meet her one day!))
So this giveaway actually went live yesterday but it took me a minute (or a day) to find the email with the proper coding in it to share it with you. That and I started my new job yesterday, so that kind of took some precedence!
Any who, onto the giveaway!

We all pitched in to provide the items for this month's Golden Snitch Geeky Giveaway prize box.
Say Hello To...
Time to meet your lovely giveaway sponsors! It being a new year and all, Kimi asked a special question:
What is one fandom you'd like to learn more about in 2016?
These were our answers...
KIMI | Kimi Who?
It might sound a little cliche right now, but I'd like to learn more about Star Wars. Seeing the new movie has really piqued my interest and I've found myself bugging my boyfriend with so many questions! I'm greatly enjoying learning about the Star Wars universe and old canon vs. new!
ANGIE | My So-Called Chaos
I think maybe the outlander fandom. I read the first book and really liked it, but have gotten stuck trying to read the second and people are obsessed with the whole series.
JENN | ((ME))
One fandom I'd like to learn more about this year? That is a really difficult question. Hmmm.... Either Batman (like Harley Quinn) or maybe Star Wars (I haven't watched the movies since 1-3 were in theaters) or Doctor Who (maybe pre-Christopher Eccleson).
HEATHER | The Nerdy Fox
The one fandom I’d like to learn more about in 2016 is Sherlock. I haven’t been able to really get into it even though I know if I sat down and watched it, I’d be in love.
CHRISTINA | Cali Darling
One fandom I'd like to learn more about in 2016 would have to be the Divergent series. I've seen the first one and definitely want to see the second one. I'd also like to read the books as well. I feel like Divergent would fit well into my current favorite fandoms of Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games!
One fandom I'd like to learn more about in 2016 is Deadpool. I already love all the trailers I've seen for the new movie, plus all I've heard about him as a character, because I'm a foul-mouthed, vulgar, twisted-sensed-of-humor kind of gal myself, and to find a character that is along those same lines is just freakin' fantastic! I can't wait to start buying comics and I just recently purchased my outfit for when I go and see the movie, so I'm psyched! There's nothing better than getting to be a geeky fashionista while learning about the "Merc With a Mouth".
ASHLEY | Her Geekery
I'd love to learn more about Supernatural! I've heard so much about it and I've seen an episode here and there, but I've never taken the time to sit down and get into it. I'm especially intrigued by Jared Padalecki's 'Always Keep Fighting' campaign, which I think is what really sparked my interest in this massive fandom!
STACEY | Geeks & Lattes
The Once Upon A Time fandom. I abandoned the show in S2 and now I regret it.
IMANI | Puke Kawaii
Let's go Wade Wilson. Deadpool comes outnxt month and I think more people should know him.
DANIELLE | From Girlie to Nerdy
I'd like to learn more about (and hopefully watch) Sailor Moon this year. I missed the boat on that show as a kid and I love that it promotes girl power and has talking cats.
NICHOLE | Cuppa Geek
I can't wait to get all caught up with Doctor Who and Torchwood. The show has changed my fandom life. I can't say I've ever been this crazy about a show before. Not even my horror shows. And I'm a huge horror geek. Doctor Who has everything romance, action, suspense, horror . . How could you not be obsessed?
LEAH | Girl Getting Geeky
I think it might actually be Harry Potter for me. I'm not a great lover of the characters. Sorry! But I am a lover of the world.
VANESSA | 2 Dorks in Love
We just started getting into Supernatural this month. I kept seeing raves all over my geek mom group and told my husband that I wanted to start catching up. I knew little bits...like there's Felicia Day in there somewhere, and I know Dean likes pie, ha ha. So far it's been great for the first season and a half!
KATY | Plays Well with Coffee
I would love to learn more about the Sherlock fandom! I've heard nothing but good things about the show, so I'm totally stoked to jump into the whole thing!
JESSICA | Two Married Geeks
The DC fandom. I'm more of a Marvel Gal myself.
KAYLY | My Open Sketchbook
For me, I think I'd enjoy learning a bit more about the Marvel universe, in terms of character origins and whatnot. As a fan of the MCU, I'd really like to learn more about the comic history, especially as there are character movies coming out this year that I'd like to see but don't know much about (ie - Doctor Strange).
LIANA | Liana Art & Illustration
The Star Wars universes (canon and not canon) and the new series they're putting out!
JESSICA | The Nifty Nerd
I'd like to learn more about Firefly. People seem to love the series or think it's highly overrated. I fell in love with the movie, Serenity, when I first watched it, so I'd like to give the series (single season?) a chance!
MICHELLE | Geeked Out Girl
The fandom I would like to learn more about is video games. Gamers seem so passionate about everything they do- from the games they play to the system(s) that they use. I would love to find a system and a game that I am so dedicated to that I actually play it through all the way to the end.
Time for a Giveaway!
