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 =)
Yesterday, I scanned through my i.PH blog and read some of the entries I wrote way back in April 2007. It is the month when I went to Manila from Dagupan for two reasons: My On-the-Job training at SVI and iBlog3.
As a newbie to blog events, I was really excited to the fact that I am going to UP and learn more about blogging. I learned that a blogger can actually venture into different niches and even earn money from it. The fact that I’ll be meeting some of the authors of the blogs I’m reading added to the excitement of the Dagupena dreamer.
At iBlog3, I was with Gee, one of the bloggers I met thru a game we were in years ago. I met my cyber mom in the persona of Tita Dine. It was also in that summit where I met Cai and Louis, two of my closest friends today.
“Sa Dagupan ka pa galing? Ang layo ah” Louis said who is carrying a big backpack.
“Oo. Kahapon lang ako dumating. Excited nga ako eh” I replied.
“Wow, pare-pareho pala tayong nagbblog sa i.ph? Ang saya naman!” I told them in a shy manner.
“Oo naman.. Mas maraming i.ph bloggers last year kasi nagsponsor din sila” Cai, who was wearing a long skirt and bakya said.
We became good cyber friends even if I went back to Dagupan. We were struggling students who are finding ways of earning extra money from online gigs.
