JaypeeOnline Wins @ ’09 Philippine Blog Awards

2009 philippine blog awards

This post is a little bit delayed and I’m sure most of you guys already know about it by now that JaypeeOnline won the Best Technology Blog award in the recent 2009 Philippine Blog Awards. I wanted to take my time in publishing this post not because I was preparing to write a very lengthy post but because up to this moment, it still feels surreal. I still can’t believe it. Its probably because I wasn’t at the PETA-PHINMA Theater to receive the trophy and that I still don’t have the trophy with me or maybe because I wasn’t expecting to win?

Anyways, I first found out about it on Twitter, when I read the tweets sent by Ate Noemi and Tonyo Cruz. It should’ve been enough for me to believe it but it was about 5 AM and I only had a few hours sleep so I was thinking that maybe my eyes were deceiving me. I logged in to Flippish.com to watch the live stream and from there, Ambo told me that I won. I thought I was still dreaming. I still wasn’t 100% convinced because I didn’t get to see or hear the presentors calling out my blog’s name. I wanted to see and hear it for myself before I believed it was true.

Later that day, I went back to Flippish.com to watch the video recordings of the event. After sifting through several videos, I was able to find the one that had Technology category and watched as Jayvee Fernandez and Erika Tapalla presented the award. It felt really good and I was very happy when I heard the name “JaypeeOnline” announced as the winner.

Here’s the link to the video where the award for the Technology Category was presented. Fast forward to 5:20 for the Technology Category and then 8:46 where Jayvee greets me and mentions that I was online watching the live stream. Thanks Jayvee!

I’ve been wanting to attend the Philippine Blog Awards since its first year and I really wish I was there this year. It would’ve been a great experience to meet my online/blogging friends and meet other Pinoy bloggers and see faces behind the blogs. Of course, this award would’ve made it extra special. Btw to the winners of the other categories and special awards, if you’d like a banner like the one I have here on this post and on my sidebar, just leave a comment below or send me a message via the contact page and I’ll gladly make one for you.

Now its time to give thanks. First and foremost, I’d like to thank God for giving me good health, strength and wisdom. Next, I’d like to thank my family for their support, they are my inspiration. To Jan Geronimo for nominating me to this year’s Philippine Blog Awards. My friend MM Fernandez for introducing me to the world of websites and blogging and inspiring me to start my own personal website. I’d also like to thank you, my dear loyal readers, visitors, the Jedi bloggers, the Power50 group, fellow bloggers and online friends for your support. Thanks to everyone who left congratulatory comments on my previous posts and also on my Twitter and Facebook accounts. Btw, I’d also like to thank Arbet for accepting the award on my behalf. Hehe Last but not least, I’d like to thank the organizers, staff, volunteers, judges and sponsors of the Philippine Blog Awards. I feel very honored and at the same time humbled by this award.

    Wow, special mention. Thanks, Jaypee. Yeah, I can remember it all too clearly now. But that’s just a virtual push. You did all the heavy lifting in making this blog the best in your niche.

    Well deserved. They should have given you Mac and not a cellphone, if you ask me. Ahahaha.
