Hello, folks! Sorry for the delay, and thank you very much for your patience. Without further ado, I hereby declare the 5th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! As always, my big thanks to all those who participated. This carnival is nothing without you.
45 entries were submitted in this blog carnival. Yay! Awesome, right? And yes, I read all of them. What’s more exciting is that a lot of them were from bloggers who participated in this blog carnival for the first time. To the newbies, I hope you enjoyed connecting with our fellow bloggers. Please participate again at the next one. To the carnival “veterans”, I send my love to you for always supporting these events. Thank you very much!
