Congratulations to my Blog Anniversary Contest Winners!!!

First of all, thank you so much to all the patience you guys have extended with regards to the delay of this announcement. I didn’t realize that the end of my contest coincided with the first day of classes in DLSU and given that I am teaching three new subjects this term, I was simply overwhelmed with all the things I needed to do.

Anyway, with no further ado, let me congratulate all the winners of my contest:

BEST ENTRY: Picking the best entry was so difficult because everyone had something great to be thankful for. Both me and my guest judge, my resident mamaru and colleague, Teacher Trina. The winning entry beat of the rest because of the way she integrated a poem and a great photo collage to express her feelings of gratitude this past year. Congratulations to Ellen Joy Castel of Bloggityboop.info who shares about her gratitude for her three wonderful angels, despite of, and in spite of the difficulties and challenges motherhood brings.

Ellen will receive the following:

  • $30 via Pay Pal
  • Info domain plus hosting
  • Pinoy Blogger Shirt $10 via Pay Pal
  • 1 Yummy book
  • Sponsorship Link for 6 months at My Happy Home
  • Running Ad Link for 1 year at More Food Adventures
  • 125×125 banner for 1 month at Pinay Ads

For the 3 raffle winners, I used an online randomizer in order to pick the winners. There were a total of 16 unique contestants, although some had multiple entries in several blogs, which left me with a total of 21 entries. Keeping track of the raffle entries was quite difficult because of the nature of the mechanics. Nonetheless, after painstakingly sorting through the entries, counting the twitter/plurk/fb promos and comment points, I had 762 items on the list. I randomized 3 times and these were the entries that landed at the top:

For 1st place

congratulations Dhadha Garcia!

For 2nd place

Congratulations Lourdes Espanol!


For 3rd place

congratulations to Ria Romero!

Sweeping the special awards of the contest, namely EARLY BIRD, TOP COMMENTATOR and HIGH SCORE! is the very, very lucky Joanne Gonzales

Again, congratulations to all the winners! Please email me your mailing addresses and contact numbers so I can send the prizes asap. Also, please send me a 125×125 ad buttons so I can send them to the sponsors so they can run your ads asap.

Oh, and don’t forget to let me know your pay pal addresses so I can send you your $$$!!!

A bit of good news: because of the generosity of my sponsors and support of my loved ones I have a few extra prizes to hand out 🙂 Let me just get them sorted out then will update you all!
