Awarded again: The Sunshine Award

In my previous post, I thanked Asha for giving me The Booker Award. Now, I would like to send my gratitude to Lottie Eve for thinking that I deserve the Sunshine Blogger Award. I don’t know how I got this though I hope that optimism isn’t one of the criteria for nominating. Sometimes I am too negative that my friends tease me of being a giant, vertical minus sign. Lottie, thank you very much for continuously following my blog and reading my posts, especially the reviews. For the benefit of others, Lottie is a fellow bookworm and novice book reviewer.

Sending my gratitude to you all

Last month, I asked your opinion to help me choose among those items I’ve wanted to buy for myself. I have posted a poll containing four items with their photos and descriptions and you guys actively supported me by giving your thoughts on the products presented.

Yes, two more! The Gargie and Liebster Awards

It’s been a month I guess, and it is past due for me to acknowledge those people who had been so nice as to stay with me in this path I chose called blogging. Allow me to thank each and every one of you who keep on coming here and reading my random and crazy thoughts about almost anything. Others are even sweet to be my friends in this virtual world, and even some manage to contact me personally and have a chat! Just this morning, I received an email inquiring about my welfare because my country was featured in Read More …

I came, I saw, I conquered: The 30-day Blogging Challenge

Finally! Yesterday, I posted the last entry for my 30-day Blogging Challenge. Whew! At first, I didn’t expect that I would be able to finish it, what with my busy schedule and attention span. The topics given weren’t that easy to write about everyday, but I have gathered thoughts and ideas from my daily reads and experiences. From serious philosophy to almost forgotten childhood memory, I have braved the challenge to simply write and express myself. Being a new tool to prevent my seemingly writer’s block, I can say that it had successfully pushed me to write even about mundane Read More …
