Sometimes, when I go over my feedjit board to see who’s reading my posts, I need to pinch myself to make sure that I’m really seeing what I’m seeing. I have readers. Yay! ;))
When I started 2 years ago, I was at the bottom of the food chain. Like almost 300 on the Home & Living section blogger ranking. And now, I’m considerably higher with over a thousand readers! I can’t believe that people actually READ my posts. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart! :) I know you probably have better things to do than read about my life, but thank you just the same for being interested in my opinions & thoughts. ;)
Actually, I consider Franny my “mommy”. Lels, I know, I’m much (waaaay!) older than her, but she is the reason why people actually started reading my blog. So thank you my dearest frannywanny. For giving me a BIG break. It’s because of her post that people came to know of Sugar & Spice. That, plus she put me on her Blog Roll (friends of frannywanny). Lucky me! <3
Then Jin came into my life & she also sorta “plugged” me. So if Franny is my mommy, then Jin is most definitely my “aunt”. Although don’t tell her that because she’d probably kill me by poisoning me with lots & lots of green tea matcha! Or ube, depending on what’s on her plate at the moment. ;)) Of course she’s way too pretty (& young, sigh) to be my aunt.
And if Franny is my mommy & Jin is my aunt, then Michelle is definitely my “ninang”! ;)) These 3 top bloggers are my fairy godmothers who helped little ‘ol me get noticed. Thank you Fran, Jin, and Michelle, for giving me a space in your popular blog universe.
I hope I get a chance to have a photo taken with Michelle soon! <3
But wait. There’s still my QUEEN. My ANGEL.. Ms. Tina Tagle who got me started writing in the first place. She doesn’t know it, but she was my inspiration & muse. If there is such a thing as a blogger’s kingdom, then she is definitely my one & only Queen! <3 I’ve followed her through SERENDIPITY, to OH LIFE, and now to SHE DID IT ANYWAY. I will follow her to the ends of the earth. I really really will! :)
I’ve put all my blogger idols on a pedestal, and I am so lucky to find that they are all so nice & charming. Even Ms. Chuvaness herself is so down to earth that I feel I was right in loving them in my own little way. My time was definitely NOT wasted. :)
I welcome & enjoy all your emails & comments. And I’m looking forward to more, as long as they are all nice. No bashing please? I have a weak heart, and I don’t think I can take people disliking me. :) So please, only nice comments, or just don’t read my blog at all. People are not created equal. We have different opinions & thoughts, so what I deem is harmless or simply said or written in the spirit of fun may be offensive to some, so let me apologize in advance if I come across as offensive. But that is not my intention. So please, be gentle with my heart? ;)
On a different note, I’ve noticed that I’m posting more food posts than the personal stuff. Do you prefer that? I used to write about anything under the sun. But then I started having readers & I worried that you might get bored if it’s just about my life. So I’ve been writing more about restaurant & food reviews. Let me what you like to read, I’ll do my best to deliver.
Again, thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I appreciate you. More than you’ll ever know. Here’s a great big hug coming your way. Toodles! >:-*<
