The 2009 Philippine Blog Awards (Luzon) was held at PETA-PHINMA Theatre last Friday, October 9. I went to the venue straight from the office and got the chance to go around and meet some old and new faces in the blogosphere.
First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone who took time and voted for Micamyx.com as their choice for the Bloggers’ Choice! Honestly, I was a bit hesitant when I received a nomination from three people for the Personal category. Unfortunately, IÂ failed to enter the final list 😛 I received another nomination for the Bloggers’ Choice award and upon reading the requirement which is to make a post indicating your intention, I decided to give it a try. There’s no harm in trying, right? And your co-bloggers will be the ones to judge this time and yes, I really want to win =)
Another fact that made me a bit unsure is the short span of voting period for Luzon. I was eyeeing one friend to be my campaign manager (LOL) but he was busy and some of my friends were busy too. I am happy because most of them took time and effort by writing a simple blog post about me. To be honest, reading their blog posts made me feel like a winner already. I may not be the best blogger in any category, but the fact that a lot of people believed in me is something that I should really be proud of =) I am really thankful to all. Thanks talaga sobra!!! 😀
I remember last year when Winston a.k.a. Batang Yagit received the award. I never thought that he’ll be handing the award to me a year after which makes it extra special (despite of the buckles and all hehe nyok :P)
