Bonus Blog - Amy Bunnage, teen blogger

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Four weeks ago, this competition began with five girls who shared a passion for blogging: Kiana, Katrina, Brynn, Amanda, and I. On April 4th, we were all given our topics for each of the weeks, we mingled, and we were sent on our way.   For those four weeks, I spent almost every waking minute (when I wasn’t swamped with school, work, and eating) writing, editing, and advertising my blogs. 
The best part of the competition? Having my blogs posted for the world to see.  My audience has grown from just my mom, to thousands of people.  Every time I saw that someone read/liked my blog, my heart skipped a beat.  It sounds silly, but these blog posts are so personal for me; it’s like having a little piece of me on display for the world to see. 
The wrap up event itself was better than I had even imagined.  I only had one embarrassing moment the whole night (this is very good for me).  I was explaining to a few of the girls how I personally wrote my blogs, and I blurted out I have verbal diarrhea (as in I talk too much).  The only problem was I said the word verbal a LITTLE too quietly, so all that people heard was I have diarrhea.  Yes, I am a goof. 

Apart from that little hiccup, the whole night went flawlessly.  The food was amazing (sushi … drooool), the makeovers made me feel like a million bucks, and the people were super friendly.  When the end of the night rolled around, and the winner was announced, I was beyond overjoyed to hear that I had won. 
I only have you guys to thank.  It means a lot to me to know that so many people were reading/liking my blogs.  The positive feedback from all of you puts such a huge smile on my face.  Thank you so much to Coquitlam Centre (so excited to begin the internship!), the finalists (your blogs were a blast to read), and all of you who read/liked my blogs.  I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
