YoYoSkills.com 5th Birthday Contest!!!!! YoYoBestBuy Credit of $100 !!!!!!!

5 Years. It has been 5 years since YoYoSkills.com first opened its virtual doors. When I first started YoYoSkills.com back in 2008, I did it because there was a lack of YoYo new websites. There were websites that catered to the yo-yo world but many were tied to a company or a manufacturer, or just were not updated regularly. YoYoSkills was certainly not the first yo-yo blog, but I would like to think that we have made an impact. While in 2008 the yo-yo online community was limited to cells and groups, looking around today there are hundreds of yoyo news websites, in dozens of languages, pulling amazing amounts of yo-yo news from all corners of the globe. Add onto this the adoption of Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, and we are now more connected than ever before. Today the YoYoSkills.com server reports an average of about 500k page views a month with readers in 186 countries. I am honored that despite all other available resources, the yo-yo community still takes time to check YoYoSkills.com for news and videos that my team of volunteers and I can find and post.
YoYoSkills has the same mission today as it did when I started it in 2008:
“Unbiased reviews and news from around the yo-yo world, free from company influence and favoritism.”
I would like to think that we have done just that, and I strive to keep that promise as we move forward.
It has been a great pleasure to serve you, the yo-yo community for the last 5 years.
To celebrate, our good friend JD who owns YoYoBestBuy.com has donated a $100 gift certificate to a contest of our choosing. Considering that it is the age of Instagram, how about an Instagram contest?

Using the #yys5bday and @dryoyo, post a picture on Instagram of your favorite yo-yo along with your favorite yo-yo accessory. It can be a yo-yo strap, a bundle of string, Hi Chew, a string cutter, whatever you like. ENTER AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE.
On 31 August I will choose an Instagram post at random, and the winner will receive a YoYoSkills sticker, a copy of Throw the YoYo Card Game, a Skill Life shirt, and a $100 gift card to YoYoBestBuy.
10 other winners will receive a YoYoSkills sticker.
Thank you all for continuing to support YoYoSkills.com with your viewership.
Special thanks to YoYoBestBuy for sponsoring our Birthday Contest!
