Blog Anniversary Giveaway!

I started blogging about five years ago.  I just wanted to write about anything under the sun.  I started with  Then, I decided I would like to use that blog for legal updates, or anything to do with politics.  So I started this blog, Jakie and the Beadstalk

Just for your info, this is the name I use whenever I'd sell my "kalakal" - my beaded creations.  It's a play of the title "Jack and the Beanstalk".  Since my sister calls me Jakie, and I do beaded stuff, I changed it to Jakie and the Beadstalk.  I make bracelets, earrings, bookmarks, necklaces, rings, rosaries - all beaded stuff...

When I started this blog, I wanted a blog to showcase me work, but the "feeling writer" in me felt that needed to be put on the sidelines and instead feature my writing skills or the lack of it.  So now, like what I have been doing when I first started blogging, I just write on whatever I think I'd want to write about - anything about being a working mom, my kid's activities, commuting, promos, etc, etc. 

There are times when I seem to have a writer's block for weeks.  There are times that I make lots of drafts, only to delete them as I think they're trash. So anyhow, I thank you all for reading this blog, even if it may sometimes sound like I'm just talking to myself.

So to celebrate two ( plus three years (with, I'm holding a giveaway for my readers. I know, it's not much, but it's just to show my appreciation for all of you.  (Oh, this isn't sponsored by the products I'm giving away. It's all from me... heheheh)

What's required is that you put your name on the comment with your email address.  Additional entries if you follow me on twitter,  tweet about the giveaway, and follow my FB page.  Please log in to the Rafflecopter so that your entry will be valid.

Thanks! The problem is I want to write about a lot of things, and I can't seem to focus on just one topic...

About platforms, I've stuck with blogger all these years. I wanted to try wordpress, but the thought of transferring all my previous blogs made me change my mind.
