Blogging is one of my hobby. I can write about how I feel, what I see, what I hear, what I think, everything, just by the touch of my fingers on the keyboard. What made it more special, is meeting new friends, and of course giveaways! Yeay!
I like writing posts that I submit to blogger contests and giveaways. To this day (from March to June, that is), I have won 5 giveaways, and I made this post to thank all my blogger friends who have sent me their giveaway gifts.
First, is Lydia Fitrian, Masbro and Elsa. They made a giveaway for their children’s birthday (and Masbro’s birthday itself). And my post that I write about my experience going through gastroscopy, has made me one of the winners.
Second, I won a AirinHandiCrabby photo contest giveaway. I submit a photo that I took of a cat family near my home. AirinHandiCrabby is an online shop that sells handycrafts made of felt. Ani and Ririn, are two talented undergraduate college student who lives in Makasar, Indonesia.
Third, I won a giveaway from Dhe. She wants us to write about the meaning of the name Dhe, so I wrote this post, a version of mine for the name Dhe. Dhe is a blogger friend who lives in Bali. She sent me a cook book about Gulai. Hmm.. My favorite!
Fourth, I won a photo contest giveaway from Pakde Cholik. Pakde, is a senior blogger. He’s a talented writer too. He manages so many blogs, I never got to visit each one of them everytime he posts. Pakde Cholik is one creative person. He made a photo contest, and the contest’s theme is Srikandi, especially made for female bloggers on Kartini’s Day.. (If you happen to want to know about Kartini and Srikandi, you can click the link).
Pakde Cholik has publish a book, which he sent to me as a gift.
And fifth, just recently I won a giveaway made by a Samarinda blogger, Kakaakin. The writing theme is about aroma and the memories it brought. I wrote about Pine Trees Aroma, and the memories they bring everytime I smell the aroma. Kakaakin sent me a Cool ‘n Smart Blogger T-shirt, and Amplang (that is, a type of Indonesian fish crackers, originally from Samarinda). My daughter Vania loves Amplang so much, she ate half of the package all by herself.. Hahaha..
Above all, knowing my blogger friends is what makes this blogging thing is a blessing! Thank you, my friends.. 🙂
