Important Shit, Yo!


This Is Important Shit, Yo!

Seriously.

Like really fucking important.

Did we mention that this is important? Because it is.

Most of the following is taken directly from Jenn's Blogpost, some of it was grabbed from other places that Jenn posted in, and yet some of it is new info, just so you know, but in any event, if everyone could please take a few minutes to read this section and then do whatever it is you can do to help us be the best Street Team the history of Street Teams and the Blogosphere has ever seen, that would be awesome!! Let's show Jenn how much we love and adore her for giving us the Grab Your Pole series, because that's what being a member of the GYP Street team is all about!! 

From Jenn's Blog:

5/25/13 Crush Tourney Update:


WE DID IT!!!

Thanks to the hard work of the @GYPStreetTeam (pimping ain't easy you know), and the support of readers and fans alike, our GYP boy, Tristan, made it into the YA-Sisterhood's YA Crush Tourney!!

Thank you all SO much for your time and support, but it's not over! Now, Tristan along with 28 other drool-inducing guys (once the wildcard entrants are chosen) are in need of a "Book Blogger Advocate" to represent them and fight for them in the head-to-head rounds of the tournament which will begin on June 10th. So, if you're a book blogger and want to represent #TeamTristan or another guy in the tournament, keep your eyes peeled for the opportunity to do so! Advocate sign-ups will start this coming week after the 28th (I believe sign-ups are slated to run from May 28th thru June 1st) so make sure you apply QUICKLY—doing that will help you have a better chance at the yummilicious crush of your choice!! And, I know in the past there have been co-advocates, so if that's something you're interested in check with the YA Sisterhood now to see how you would go about doing that!! 

We're also in need of you folks who are uber-talented in the art of Photoshop!! Tristan's advocate will need pictures of hot guys who "look" like him and then they should be manipulated in some way to include quotes or just plain cool shit so that they stand out. We all know I'm deficient in that area so if that's something you're into and want to help out, I encourage you to do so! You can email your designs to me or the GYP Street Team, or you can simply post them to my Facebook Fanpagewall. Also, if you already have them highlighted or have the time and desire to go back through Shark Bait and The Other Fish in the Sea, #TeamTristan could probably use some awesome and swoon-worthy quotes and snippets for his advocate to use in the battle. Again, you can email those to me directly or to the Street Team, but please, in the interest of preventing spoilers, do not post quotes and snippets on a public forum like Facebook. Whatever quotes are chosen to be used in the tourney posts will be of course be seen by tournament participants and voters, however we don't need to spoil too much for readers so those quotes will be reviewed for length, "true" spoilers, and so on prior to using them.

I would also like to strongly urge you to join in the crazy-fun shenanigans that Twitter can be home to, and not only that, encourage all your friends and followers to do so as well! If you're not yet on Twitter & are concerend about not having followers, don't fret, you can follow all the Twitter peeps who follow The GYP Street Team and I'd be willing to bet a lot of them will follow you back, which also happens to be an excellent way to make new reader friends! Plus, Twitter is an excellent resource to find some of THE best book bloggers and reviewers in the blogosphere who might turn you on to a book you've never heard of or one that you've been putting off and want to kick your own ass for not reading sooner, AND they do some fantstic giveaways as well! Once you're on Twitter, make sure you follow@GYPStreetTeam in addition to me and use #YACrushTourney as well #TeamTristan in your crush tourney tweets!

Once again I'd like to thank you all for your endless support and enthusiasm. You guys make my heart happy sigh, and I know if we all do our part in regard to pimping and voting, Tristan can move forward in the tourney, so come on, guys, let's pimp our boy with #NoShame!!

From Jenn Cooksey Novels on Facebook:
Heads up, book bloggers!! The #YACrushTourney Advocate rules and sign-up form has just been posted! Applications will only be taken until June 1, 2013 (that's only FOUR days), so hurry and sign-up to advocate and fight for your fave crush!! http://ya-sisterhood.blogspot.com/2013/05/3rd-annual-ya-crush-tournament-advocate.html

Now, a little birdie told us that Jenn is planning on doing everything she's capable of doing to support Tristan's advocate and get people to vote #TeamTristan, and guess what that means? Yep! Incentives, bitches! We don't know what they'll be exactly, but we've been lead to believe they're fucking epic and if the below screen shot of something that Jenn tweeted the other night is any clue, she might be planning to release some teasers from Shark Out of Water!! SQUEEEEE!!! So, make sure you're pimping your absolute hardest and get everyone you know to join in the fun too!

If you have any questions or would like to offer to be Tristan's Advocate's bitch-slave, let us know and we'll do our best to find you answers in a timely manner and/or get you in contact with whoever ends up chosen as Tristan's knight in shining armor. Like Jenn and the YA Sisterhood said, it is pretty important to be on Twitter in regard to the tournament so we would again like to reiterate Jenn's urging that if you're not already on Twitter, that you join now. You can follow us at @GYPStreetTeam and we do our very best to always follow back. Also, make sure you show your support to the virtual world by grabbing a #TeamTristan badge/profile picture. A few GYP Street Members as well as Jenn have already swapped their social media avatars and stuck it on their blogs and anywhere else they can to show their devotion and to encourage others to support Tristan in the tournament as well as gaining the series in general good exposure.
That's it for now, team! Take care and pimp on!

Pimping with #NoShame,
-The Grab Your Pole Street Team Officials
