First of all, I would like to thank all of you who have supported this blog all these years. This March, we are celebrating our 3rd birthday... how time flies so fast!
What started as a simple blog dedicated to my passion for Chinese music has now metamorphed into something that offers every Asian music lovers updates about their favorite stars and idols.
It's actually a simple story. I became a huge fan of Hana Kimi and I had a mega crush on Ella Chen. I started searching for her online and listened to her music. My first blog post was actually about S.H.E. performing in the Taiwan Flower Expo. And then without knowing, this blog has evolved and grew into something I wasn't expecting.
I would love to thank all of you!!! It's a sad fact that most of the Chinese music blogs I have been following has died already. And there were times that I am thinking about letting this blog go.. but then again, maybe not. My love for Chinese music will never end.
Most of you might not know but I came from a middle-class family. We don't even have a stable internet connection at home. I used to go to internet cafe's to rent them up to this day. So if I am not able to update regularly, I apologize. Sometimes, I just cannot afford to rent anymore. Unlike other famous blogs, I don't earn much from this blog. Well to be honest, over the last 3 years, I have only earned Php 2,000 (around $20) which is very small compared to what I spend. If you noticed, I bought the domain (which is taiwanpop.net) just this January because it costs $10/year. If not for a donation through my personal blog, I wouldn't be able to buy it. So to the Fairyhob Mother, thanks for the donation!
I also maintain a personal blog which focuses on fashion, events and food. That's where I earn something. It's not that big but it's enough to maintain that and this blog.
And through my savings from my personal blog, I would like to run a small giveaway to you, my dear readers. I know this is not that much, but I hope you still enjoy it. I'll be giving away 3 CD's which commemorates our 3rd birthday. The mechanics are below. I hope you continue supporting this blog -- as well as my personal blog.
By the way, this blog is open for donations too! Just send me a message by firstname.lastname@example.org. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. As much as possible, I want to give away 1 album every month. But since I also need to pay some bills at home, I can't. But if in case you donate, I would use them for our giveaways.
Again, thank you so much for being with us all through these years! I love you guys!! Keep spreading the love for Asian music!
