Moleskine Blog Hopping Giveaways Suspended

Due to Typhoon Ondoy’s aftermath, we are temporarily suspending the Blog Hopping Moleskine Giveaways contest series. We like the focus of people to be about helping others.

Glenda of Oodles of Goodles was placed in a very uncomfortable position of declaring a winner on Oct. 1 amidst the recent events. Thanks Glenda for your professionalism and understanding. Thank you also to Rico and Gail for working with us in suspending the contest series.

For now, let’s help. Thank you very much.
