Gifts , Winnings and Top 3

Somehow I always feel embarrassed to post about my winnings and top 3s and kept on postponing this post!When I first got a gift and card from a blogger pal  a couple of months back[ My blogger pal  Romina was the first one to send me something from blogland] I didnt know it was blogger etiquette to post photos of the gifts ! So sorry Romina!Now I am more " blog wise" experienced and know blogger pals like to hear about others winnings , top 3s ,give-way wins and RAKs as its a form of encouragement perhaps! Do tell me your views.
Well do forgive me for blowing my horns -I am just following  blogger etiquette !!
