Pin It FRM 1st anniv giveaway poster 3D
Can't believe it's already been a year...

Food Reviews Manila is turning one this June! First of all, I just want to say thank you very much to my readers. Since you keep reading, I keep writing. Your continuous praises for my written work, as well as for my photographs, really warm the heart. Your words inspire me to further improve my craft. It's been a fun and satiating year. Before I get to the exciting part though, let me just share how FRM came to be...

I started blogging last May of 2008, mostly about anything and everything that comes to mind. My personal blog was housed at entrepgirl.blogspot.com. Gradually, I found myself gravitating towards writing about my dining experiences and food that held my fancy. But then, towards the end of 2009, I got pregnant and my time for blogging was replaced by constant bouts of battle with "morning" sickness. I put morning in quotation because it really was an all-day occurrence. Needless to say, my blog came to a halt for the whole of 2010. The succeeding year, after giving birth and adjusting to another baby in the house, I finally felt going back to writing about my food adventures. To commemorate my comeback after that hiatus and to give my site a more focused theme which is food, I decided to get a domain and rename my blog to Food Reviews Manila. And thus, FRM was born.

By the way, I made a new logo for this 1st Anniversary celebration. Kind of a foodie play on the camera that I use. What do you guys think?

Now for the best part...

I was surprised and tremendously touched by the number of sponsors willing to be part of this Anniversary Giveaway. I was expecting (more of hoping) that I could get two or three that would be willing to partner with me on this, and I was just overwhelmed that a lot more had offered to graciously provide giveaway prizes. With that, I'm truly grateful and humbled by their generosity. So to my sponsors, thank you, thank you so much!

Starting June 1, 2012, Friday, I will be having a series of giveaways. Please stay tuned and watch out for them. I hope you can all participate and join (tell your friends too), and help make FRM's anniversary celebration a success. Again, thank you for all your support!

Thank you so much guys! :)

@Malou: Yes, I did design the logo, although this is the first time I've designed one. I can try to help you with yours although I must warn you, I'm no professional at all, hehe. :)
