Happy 12th Year, Anagon's Blog! (+ PHONE GIVEAWAY)

4.5.21

Posting this late, but last April 25, my blog celebrated its 12th year!     



I have a lot, but allow me to share my top-of-mind....


12 favorite moments as a blogger:    


1. All the cool events I was able to attend as a blogger  


2. All the endorsement deals I got from brands I truly love 


3. Getting invited to a Korean show as a blogger, and guested for a show with Korean celebrities including Sandara Park! 



4. Meeting fellow bloggers turned lifetime friends!


5. All my travels for tourism and airlines, allowing me to explore our beautiful world as part of my work! 



6. Surprise “blogger mails” that I never EVER expected I’ll receive when I first opened this blog: A refrigerator, phones and other gadgets, clothes from brands I really buy from, hotel vouchers and airplane tickets, to name a few! 


7. You know that I buy my own fan meeting tickets, but as a fan girl it will always be an honor for me every time I get invited to shows as a blogger: from oppa fan meetings in Manila, to a Korean music festival where BTS performed, etc. 



8. Do stuff I won't usually do, experience new things I never imagine myself trying! Like camping by the beach, bike on air, slide on ice to explore an ice village, or ride a hot air balloon!


9. In 2014, I think I was the only blogger invited for Taylor Swift’s backstage access / meet-and-greet for The Red Tour 



10. Go on a luxury cruise for 7 days!





11. Meeting new friends, albeit only virtually, who have the same interests as I am! (That’s YOU!) 


12. And actually call my passion project my fulltime work.   


Thanks to Instagram (lol), this may not be an updated blog like it used to, I still want to celebrate this blog for giving me not only the opportunities I have now, but also for keeping my memories for me--The main reason why I opened a blog anyway!   


For a small celebration, I am giving away my realme C12 mobile phone in Coral Red! (Used only for a blog feature). A HUGE thank you to realme for being one of the first brands that gave me a project again since the pandemic started.




To Join The realme Phone Giveaway:   


1. Open to all supporters, old and new! I may not know all your faces but I have memorized your usernames especially when I always see you on my feed!


2. Must engage on my new posts on Instagram @anagon (no need to go back to old posts pls, no flooding pls!). Since most of my work is already on that page, will appreciate all the support for brands that trust me! ❤


3. Comment below what you want to see more on my blog, and put your IG username.


4. Tag your friends on my IG post with the first photo I used on this blog to join the phone giveaway!


5. Share this phone giveaway on your Instagram Stories. Tag me @anagon so I can cross-check entries! :) 


Multiple entries allowed, as long as they are different suggestions and you tag people you really know (no spamming strangers pls!)   


I’ll announce the winner before the month of May ends. 


If you're new here, welcome! I hope you'll enjoy the ride! And to the ones who stayed throughout my different life changes and life phases... Thank you so much for supporting me all these years! You have a special place in my heart. ❤

 

사랑해!!!

  7. First,congratulations on the anniversary of your blog! How is it 12 years old na?! Grabe.. bilis ng panahon. Haha. Parang kelan lang nung binasa ko yung blog entry about kpop fanmeets. Anyway.. i would like to see more of your other passion projects.. you seem to have a lot. I am always in awe with people who can juggle a lot of things esp if it is between their job and their hobbies (cos sometimes i feel like 24 hours isnt enough lol). I also wanna see more travel blogs or maybe a travelguide or itinerary for SouthKorea (from cheapest to most expensive lol). Book reviews on books recommended by BTS. :) Or...just an idea.. how about doing something you actually have no idea about? It would be fun to challenge yourself as well. Lol - @neekeeteeez

  11. H Ana! Congratulations on your 12th year! ♥️ I really miss your travel posts and always love your super laidback fashion posts too. My skirt + sneaker idol! I remember seeing you in Ayala Cebu for a blogger meet/closet cleanup sale but I was too shy to approach you for a photo so me and my sisters rummaged your luggage full of clothes nalang! Don’t ever stop what you’re doing and always keep going! ♥️ Gray | @bulgarianbum

  12. You are one of the OG blogger, I really really love reading your travel blogs as my mini break from work. It's like going to the places you have seen and explored. Your posts are so authentic and from the heart. Since travel blogs are not possible these days, i really enjoy your BTS posts. I get to share with my sister in law the merch and finds you post. More power and just keep blogging!!
