You know what's amazing about the Internet?
I live in a little country called New Zealand but right now someone from Malaysia, the United Kingdom, South Africa, the United States, Egypt, Bolivia, Spain, France, Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil or even Bosnia could be reading this.
I started blogging when I was 15. My best friend, Marissa and I had just finished our national high school exams (PMR) in Malaysia and we were bored out of our minds. So what did 2 teenage girls in the 21st century do? We decided to learn HTML and began designing our own individual websites from scratch. In less than a year I moved to New Zealand and life as a teenager here kept me pretty occupied. That was pretty much the beginning of my blog's 6 year hiatus.
During our summer holidays last year (which is from November to January for us in the Southern Hemisphere) I was back in Malaysia and it was then that I felt the urge to start blogging again. I figured it'd be like a little cyber adventure to get my thoughts out to the world and hey, why not get to know some people from across the world at the same time?
8 months later here I am and this is my blog. No doubt there has been some stressful moments because I always feel like I have some sort of a blog deadline to meet but all in all it has been a blast getting to know you all and receiving your lovely comments and e-mails. So here's me saying a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has made me feel like I'm not sending my thoughts to a virtual black hole every time I click the 'Publish Post' button at the bottom of the screen. For some mysterious reason you guys are here reading my unpolished and somewhat insignificant words. Without your support, feedback and opinions this whole blogging experience wouldn't be as worthwhile. I really do appreciate the time you've taken to express yourself over here and in the e-mails and messages you've sent me so keep them coming because I enjoy hearing from you.
Therefore as a little token of appreciation I'd like to give away not 1, not 2 but 3 pretty headbands to 3 lucky readers whom I will pick randomly. (I know this excludes guys but I have a feeling my male readership is not as large as my female one!)
Now the question is...
How can you be eligible for this giveaway?
Step # 1. You have to be a follower of 'Colours of My Life' and it is limited to 1 entry per person. If you don't have a Blogger account don't worry just yet...
Step #2. Leave a comment and tell me what your favourite colour is and the number of the headband that you like. All those without a Blogger account can use the chatbox on the right.
e.g. My favourite colour is turquoise! Headband 3.
Step #3. Please include your e-mail address so that I'd be able to contact you. If you don't want to reveal your e-mail address in public you may e-mail me your entry at elaiza_(at)hotmail.com.
You have until 17th June 2010 to submit your entry as I'll choose the winners by Friday, 18th June. Alrighty people, it is as easy as 1,2,3... so what are you waiting for?
P.S. I have my first exam on Monday so wish me luck everyone! InshaAllah khair =)
