2007 philippine blog awards

When I first blogged about the 2007 Philippine Blog Awards, I did it to help promote the event. I had no idea that my blog would eventually be a part of it.

As soon as the nomination period started, I frequented the site and kept track of all the updates. I was happy to see my blogger friends on the list. Even if my blog wasn’t on the list I wasn’t disappointed because I wasn’t even expecting JaypeeOnline to be nominated. Then a few days later, much to my surprise, I saw that I was nominated for the Technology category. I felt happy and honored to make it on that list.

Earlier today, I was even more surprised to know that my blog is one of the finalists! I wasn’t aware of it until Benj mentioned it in his comment. Then later on, other peeps like Ron, Fruityoaty, Tess and Joni also left comments congratulating me.

And for that person who nominated JaypeeOnline, whoever you are, thank you very much for taking time to nominate my blog. If you didn’t nominate my blog, it wouldn’t be in the finals. Heck, it wouldn’t even be in there at all. It would be better if you can let me know who you are so I can thank you personally. You can leave a comment here or if you want to keep it private, you can use the Contact page.

    @AJ – Thanks man! Btw, this is supposedly the blog awards for 2006 but it was done in early 2007 so it was named that way. Just making it clear. Hehe :D

    Hi Jaypee, good luck! Just thought of dropping by your blog since you had problems as you mentioned sa PBA website, hehe. (I actually previously wanted to see the WP Dashboard posts, hehe, when your site was down.) Here’s to websites staying up and hope for the blog awards! :)

  • eric, March 23, 2007 @ 5:55 AM

    uy jaypee! congrats!

    ikaw na panalo dito!

  • JP Habaradas, March 23, 2007 @ 3:58 AM

    @kathy – That's so true! I really feel that way. Thanks! :D

    @Jam – Thank you! :D

    @Shari – I'll call you neither. Thank you so much for the compliments! I sure hope that the judges see it that way too. Hehe..Nevertheless, all the blogs who made it to the finals are deserving. :D

    I know! Sure hope I was there so I could join the fun during the awards night. Then I'd meet you guys and thank you all in person for your support.

    Yeah, it's fixed now. Hopefully it won't be happening again til the end of this month. Hehe :D

    @Angela – So did you like the WP Dashboard posts? Yeah, hopefully this blog would stay online more often. Hehe..Thanks for dropping by! :)

  • Shari, March 22, 2007 @ 10:07 AM

    Call me bad/naughty, but I think that the award should go to you. Yours is the most interesting, visitor-friendly/interactive tech blog among the finalists. My take, of course. As one of the constant lurkers and feed subscribers, lol.

    Good luck! Sayang, you're not here in the Philippines. ^_^

    PS: Parang a minute ago lang, yung WP error pa ito ha. Ang bilis. :p Glad everything's back to normal na.

    Best of luck buddy!!!

  • fruityoaty, March 20, 2007 @ 7:15 AM

    Hey Jaypee! Again, congrats. You are totally deserving of being in the finals and (not to take away the accomplishments of the other finalists), I think you should win your category! Simply because, since having stumbled upon your site through random blog hopping, I've actually read a few posts in your blog THAT ACTUALLY helped me to troubleshoot my WordPress problems as well as learning about new stuff that I didn't know. That's gold to me (saving time).

    Anyway, keep on rockin'. L8tr days. :D
