As promised, I would announce the winner to my 300 Followers Appreciation Giveaway today, on my blog anniversary. But before that, I would like to talk about the blog first.
Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog. As I have been constantly telling everyone, I seldom stick to what I do because I am someone who is easily bored, so it has been a wonder, even for me, that I have reached this milestone. To reach one year is a big accomplishment, and it also proves how much I love this blog.
When I started this blog a year ago, I never knew that I would love it this much. Fun fact - I actually made a blog because of reading challenges! Can you believe that? And then I clicked some of the links in the reading challenges that I joined in, and realized that I wanted to try it too! At first I really didn't take it seriously. But then I found memes, blogs I loved, Netgalley, Edelweiss, and the biggest bonus of all, Filipino bloggers! From then on, I took blogging more seriously, and I loved every single moment of it!
I am extremely thankful to have gone this far, and of course, I wouldn't have arrived here, at this moment, if it weren't for the people who helped me. Thank you to all my GFC followers, BlogLovin' followers, Twitter followers, Facebook fans, and Goodreads friends! Thank you to all those who ever talked to me in Twitter, or ever commented on my blog. Thank you to all the publishers who approved me for eARCs. A special shout out goes to all the Filipino bloggers, especially those of whom I talked to. Thank you so much everyone! I may not know each and every one of your names, faces or blogs, but I know that I am grateful for all of you. Love you, guys!
My only wish is that my passion for blogging and reading would last forever, and to have many many more years of blogging to come! But then I need your help, guys! Lately, I have been too busy with school work that I don't get the chance to read as much anymore, and the blog is suffering! In line with that, I am looking for a co-blogger or guest posters to keep this blog alive! If you are interested, please visit this page, thank you!
Blog Statistics as of Today:

Again, thank you so much again, everyone! I feel like no matter how many times I say it, it still won't be enough, because words can't be enough to express how thankful I am for this day and for you guys! And so, without further ado, the winner to the contest is..... DUN DUN DUN DUN!!
