I’m not so great with titles, huh?

Googly Gooeys Thank Ewe Thank Yew Wall of Artworks

Well, I just realized that the original text for the blog giveaway was supposed to be a big thank you to all our readers but I got so caught up living in my own happylandia styling and taking pictures of all the prizes instead.  *doingk* Why isn’t the post a typical cartoon with of Tipsy & Ponggo? Well, I wanted to give you guys a glimpse of a section from our tiny home which is filled up with bits & pieces doodles and drawings.

Anyway, T-H-A-N-K-(space)-Y-O-U.  It was an awesome 2012!  Each year is always full of surprises and most of the time, we don’t really know what we’re doing but thank you for being there and cheering us on!  You just don’t know how grateful we are for having this little space in the cyberworld where we can rant colorfully about our lives and live as our walking & talking goo alter egos.

We’re three and a half years old and as cyber toddlers, for 2012, here are some of our firsts:

First Published on a Book: I Love Charts Book, U.S.A.
First Appearance on an International Newspaper: Hindustan Times, India (LOL. Not that we ever appeared on a local newspaper so I guess we can just call it “First Appearance on a Newspaper”. Haha.)
First Interview on Radio: Interview on Mellow 94.7 with Vince Golangco & Tracy Abad
Plastered on a Facebook Wall for the First Time  (Bwahahaha! Beware. Remember, clicking this link is an option 😉 )
First Time to Ever Talk About Blogging in a Public Event: Nuffnang Blogopolis

Thank you too for supporting us when we moved to a new house for the nth time!?! (Did you know that The Googly Gooeys was born on a personal account on Multiply back in 2009 then transferred to a personal account on Facebook then a Facebook Page then Tumblr and finally, this site that you’re looking at 😉 *Whew!* And of course, how could we forget the Googly Gooey Plushie Keychains ?

Lastly, special thanks to Patty Laurel for helping me make my dream of designing for brides come true! 🙂 (No, I don’t design dresses. Although one of my dreams is to make dresses out of paper for fun. Haha.) Thanks to our friends on Instagram who have been fueling us with positive energy as we inch our way towards project deadlines. 🙂

So we thought 2013 couldn’t top 2012 then one day, while at a cafe & working on a project, we found out that The Googly Gooeys made it to Spot.ph’s 15 Blogs Worth Following 🙂 Oh wow.

Spot dot PH Tweet

Spot.ph came out with a list of Tumblelogs worth following years ago and I’ve always enjoyed their “Tweets of the Week” section.  I was secretly hoping to land on their list one day but forgot about that dream since I always thought it was impossible with the plethora of blogs swimming in the cyber sea! So, thank you SPOT.PH & thank you too readers for making this happen! 🙂
