It is very extensive and much more informative than the last one that was posted quite a few years ago. All the links and instructions you would ever need to run/own a Giveaways, Shops or Service are spelled out. Reading this should certainly help you figure out if this is for you or just give it a read to see what is involved in keeping one going!
