On Giveaways and Friends

Hi everyone! I mentioned in my previous post in this personal blog of mine that I would be having a giveaway soon. Well, thanks to HBC, that giveaway is now up and running on my beauty blog, Codename AYA. Wait, make that "giveaways." Yes, plural! Every week for 8 weeks, HBC and I will share with you different makeup tips and feature HBC products which you can get for FREE just by answering the question of the week. Click *here* to check out the ongoing giveaway! :)

Aside from that giveaway, I'm also gonna be having another giveaway on December, in celebration of my blog's first anniversary! YEEEEY! I hope you watch out for it and join as well! I'm really excited about this!!!

I've been blogging for almost two years now. My first blog was about chemistry. Haha. A bit nerd-ish, I know. I was still a student then. Anyway, after I graduated, I had a lot (and I mean A LOOOOT) of free time, and I spent most of that time reading beauty blogs and watching beauty videos on YouTube. That's when I first started getting interested in beauty blogging. I posted my first ever haul post on December 5, 2010, and you can read that *here.* From then on, I just couldn't (and still can't) stop blogging. I seriously am enjoying this. And although I still don't have a full-time job, I feel that I have a lot of responsibilities already - all blog-related. I consider blogging as my "work" (for now). 

One of the things that I enjoy about blogging is meeting new friends. I've met quite a few fellow bloggers already. One of my first blogger friends, Ann of The Beauty Addict, is even having a giveaway right now. Click on the picture below to join her giveaway.

Of course, I'm joining this giveaway! This is my way of showing my support to my blogger friends. 

If you think that blogging is just all about the freebies, the events, the features, the sponsors, etc., you are wrong. For me, what's important is that you write about what you know and about things you enjoy, share that with other people, and meet new friends along the way ;P
