Was I happy? Of course! It’s my first time to join Ms. Janette Toral’s Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010 writing project and to get one of the much-coveted 10 spots is a big feat for any blogger in the Philippine blogosphere.
When I started this blog, I simply wanted to share my finds and experiences in relation to beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. And because I always work with a very limited budget, I wanted to focus mostly on value-for-money beauty, skin care, and hair care products. I didn’t expect much readership but I was hoping that a handful of visitors would at least appreciate my topics.
Get Prettified! opened a lot of doors for me. I attended awesome workshops and events and got to exchange ideas with other female bloggers. I discovered and learned a lot of things and it has been a fun, fun year in the beauty and lifestyle blogging scene.
I’d love to see more beauty, fashion, and lifestyle bloggers from Mindanao emerge this year. Personally, I believe that you don’t really have to be a beauty and fashion junkie to effectively blog about beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. If self-improvement is your goal, then the ideas will flow freely.
For this milestone, I’d like to thank everyone who supported Get Prettified! with special mention to Ria, Avel, and Orman for making sure that the Davao Bloggers and Sox Bloggers participate in the writing project. And to Lyle, who has been helping me out with this blog since Day 1.
