Happy Autumn! Fall season is warmer than average here in Toronto, but I’m not complaining much because I got to wear my summer clothes a little longer. Anyway, let’s get back to business. Without further ado, I hereby declare the 13th Fujinsei Blog Carnival officially CLOSED! It received a total of 29 “approved” entries.
Thank you very much to all the participants—veterans and newcomers alike. You’re the heart of these blog carnivals. And also thank you to those who read the participants’ blog posts, even if you didn’t submit your own links. You’re the best!
The following are my favourite posts from this carnival.
