Yoohoo! Arria here back from the dead—-
—erm, at least that’s what some of you think, I guess. A few days ago, I received this e-mail:
Arria, are you still alive?
Usually when I take a break from blogging, I just take a total break without any warning or asking for permission. Similarly, when I return to blogging, I just dive in and not apologize. This time, however, my total silence seemed to worry some of you into thinking I died. I’m very sorry about that. That’s why I decided to briefly break my silence during my hiatus and tweet:
(whisper: Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, okay?) ← enough with that shameless self-promotion! 😛
I apologize to those who are still waiting for my response to your e-mails, tweets, comments, etc. I’ll be spending the next couple of weeks on responding to all of you, so please don’t think that I suddenly turned into a snobbish bitch and ignored you. Not at all. I just like taking my time when responding to messages. Thanks for your understanding!
Now that’s over and done with, here’s my super late declaration that the 3rd Fujinsei Blog Carnival is officially CLOSED! My big thanks to all those who participated whether you submitted your links or not. This carnival collected a total of 33 entries. Very nice. Thank you very much! Now let’s get to the fun part. Here’s my personal favourite submissions:
