Best Posts Round-Up of the 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival

Hello, folks! Oh wow. It’s been a while, isn’t it? How are you all doing? No blog carnival this February, but don’t worry as I’ll host one this coming March. But before that, I hereby declare the 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSEDI’m so behind in this round-up, but please bear with me. This blog carnival received a total of 48 “approved” entries. Awesome, right?

As always, my big thanks to all my amazing fellow bloggers who are always very supportive. You’re the veterans in these carnivals. Thank you for always participating! My blog carnivals are nothing without you. I also want to thank the new participants who participated for the first time. I hope that you participate again on the next one.

So without further ado, allow me to present you my favourite entries in this blog carnival. Here they are:

I originally had about 15 posts that I really liked, but I had to cut them down to 10 for this round-up. So difficult to decide which to feature! Excellent work to the 10 amazing bloggers listed above. Your posts really entertained me, even made me think (which I love). Thank you very much for sharing your great ideas and writings with us. And also my big thanks to all the bloggers who participated in this blog carnival. I hope that you participate again on the next one.

Please join me again for the next blog carnival which I’ll be hosting on Monday (March 6). I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts. Also feel free to invite your blogging friends to participate, as well. The more, the merrier! Once again, thank you very much. I’ll see you on March 6th for the 10th Fujinsei Blog Carnival. Take care, folks! Cheers!

    1. Thank you! It was difficult choosing. There are some that are really well-written but I had to choose the ones that I “enjoyed” more even if not too well-written compared to them, if you know what I mean?


      1. Yeah, I know what you mean. They can be well written, but if they don’t speak as much to you, then it’s understanding. Plus we are here to have fun, so yay for enjoying so many posts 🙌🙌

  7. Aww. I’m surprised and I feel humbled. To be honest, I didn’t expect my post would be one of your favourites because I could see a lot of awesome entries and was able to read them. I know it was hard for you to choose among them. They were all good! All entries were deserving. Thank you for hosting this event, Arria. Till next time! 🙂
