Firstly, I would like to thank Pari of FoodDelicious for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host her event 'ONLY' Salads which is in fact the first event I have hosted.I have received 73 entries in total for this event which I can say is really a big number to make me scream that my first event is really successful. I personally do thank all the blogger friends and non bloggers who have sent entries for the event and made it successful.Well for me, I managed to add a few more bloggers to my network. I would have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and more importantly this also made me aware of the pain that my fellow bloggers take in putting together the round up's for the event.
