Time flies so fast when you enjoy what you're doing, and that's exactly what I have in my mind right now. Even after 12 months and 245 blog entries later, I still can't believe that it has already been a year since I've first published a blog post here. It's funny too how things have turned out with my blogging adventure, yet at the same time, I feel blessed.
If you've read my very first blog post, you'd realize that I made this blog as my personal space on the internet. I actually wanted to combine posts about things I love -- beauty, fashion, photography, art and design, anime, Japanese culture, food and myself. However, my love for food prevailed and this very girly-sounding blog inevitably turned into an all-food blog. There came a time when I wanted to change my blog name and domain, but most of my cyber-friends already know me as The Purple Doll. So in the end, I just decided to own up the brand of a girly-girl food blogger who loves purple.
Throughout a whole year of blogging, I met a lot of wonderful people, learned a lot of new things, experienced a lot of new adventures, and ate a lot of really good food. And although I didn't expect some things, I'm so happy that I hit the 1,000 likes mark on Facebook, won in the Influential Blogs writing project, and have recently been featured as a guest reviewer on Pop Talk, and I want to thank all of you for making these possible.
So as a way of showing my gratitude, I have partnered with Chicken Charlie and more, to give you a chance to win some prizes. Let's just say that this is my way not only to thank you, but to also celebrate my blog's 1st year anniversary.
I personally love Chicken Charlie's soy-garlic chicken, and here's a chance to win gift certificates so you can try their wonderful chicken creations out as well. Make sure to bring your special friend, best friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, ate, kuya, barkada or even your family 'cause I'm giving out P2,000-worth of gift certificates. (Thanks Chicken Charlie!)
