It’s MyMyBlog’s 3rd Blogiversary!!!
Lemme hear ya say, ‘Yeah’ ! (Yeah!)
I can’t believe that I have been blogging for three years now. Wow! It’s been an amazing and exhilarating roller coaster ride for me. Blogging comes with its own set of challenges, no doubt about it, but it’s multifariously rewarding nonetheless.
One thing I’ve learned from three years of blogging is that it’s not something that you could easily stop doing. You just simply can’t. Once you start, you’ll just keep on growing… and learning… and seeing… and feeling… until it’s no longer something that you do, but something that is you. It becomes who you are. Looking back on the past three years, my heart is filled with nothing but a deep sense of gratitude for having this blog to go to whenever I feel the need to connect with the world and to speak my mind, and for having an ardent audience such as YOU.
I myself have also just realized a few things about this blog:
- I have published a total of 201 posts (including this one), 59 of which were published within the last year (January to December 2013). Not as many as I hoped to do but I was still very pleased, considering how crazy and hectic things had been in my family for the past year.
- Out of the 201 posts I published, the majority of them (43) were about the subject of Beauty.
- The Top 3 blog posts (that were not Freebie/Giveaway-related) that got the most number of comments were: How To Change Your Facebook Profile To The New Timeline, To Blog Or Not To Blog, and Hot Momma In The House.
- The Top 3 blog posts (that were not Freebie/Giveaway-related) that were liked/shared on Facebook the most number of times were Fil-Am Actor Aristotle Montemayor: A New Force To Be Reckoned With, How To Change Your Facebook Profile To The New Timeline, and Three Days In Kunming Changshui International Airport: My Own “Terminal” Nightmare.
- The Top 3 blog posts (that were not Freebie/Giveaway-related) that were retweeted on Twitter the most number of times were How To Change Your Facebook Profile To The New Timeline, Weekend Reflections: When Less Is Less, and Kicking Some Class | Benefit Cosmetics Opens In Rustan’s Makati!.
I’m so amazed! Your unwavering support has been overwhelming and it certainly motivates me to keep providing you content with substantial value!
I will always be grateful to God for the opportunity to meet new people (many of whom have become great online friends), go places, discover new things, pursue my passions, and then share the experience with you, guys. I will also always be grateful to each one of you for appreciating what I have to share. All the mental and physical demands of blogging (the long hours spent on composing each of my blog posts and resizing, enhancing and uploading the 1,712 images within these blog posts), the 1,000+ more photos saved in my computer waiting to yet be resized, enhanced and uploaded for use in my 52 still pending blog posts (blogging backlog at its finest… nope, I don’t deny it!), and the expenses involved in maintaining a blog were all worth it! And if I had to, I’d do it all over again.
And because loyal readers are an integral part of a blogger’s journey to success, I’m here to give one lucky, loyal MyMy Blog Reader some L.O.V.E.!
A Taste Of “Chanel Heaven”
For this year’s Blogiversary celebration, I wanted to do something extra nice for y’all. I mentioned in my previous post that I merged my long overdue (October 2013) Freebie Friday with this year’s Blogiversary Giveaway, and that the brand featured this time is Chanel.
I was supposed to have given away one Chanel item last October (2013) but due to a series of unfortunate brainfarts, it totally slipped my mind!
This year, as I began planning my Blogiversary Giveaway, I asked myself, “Now, what item would get me enticed – to the highest kikay level – to join a Giveaway Contest?”
The answer was a no-brainer. Chanel. (or an invitation to a Chanel Party, pwede rin!)
Before I bought my first Chanel (a Rouge Allure Lip Colour), I sort of had my expectations but at the same time, I wasn’t sure exactly how they would be met. I had long wondered what the big deal was about Chanel. I mean, there were so many other luxury brands out there and other than the fact that Chanel has long (and maybe permanently) secured its spot in the World’s Top 10 Luxury Brands (sharing the honor and recognition with Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Gucci, Hermes, Rolex and Prada), I wondered what makes it one of the most coveted makeup brands in the world, and yet one of the most elusive and intimidating at the same time. “Surely”, I thought, “this brand was simply overhyped, right?”.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
As soon as I swiped that Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick on, I thought, “Wow! So THIS is why!” – The texture. The quality. The color. The effect. The staying power. Chanel is simply THE BEST! In my opinion, no woman should be deprived of the sense of gratification that possessing even one Chanel makeup product can bring!
And that is why for supporting MyMy Blog for the past three years, I show my appreciation with this lineup of giveaways from Chanel Cosmetics:
Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder SPF 15 / PA++
Le Blush Creme De Chanel (Creme Blush)
Lumieres Facettes Quadra Eye Shadow (Quadrille)
