2009 Philippine Blog Awards Finalists



2009 philippine blog awards

Was supposed to publish this last Friday, but I wasn’t able to do so because I had to do some personal errands and spent the rest of the day preparing materials, slideshow presentation, etc for a Saturday afternoon children’s program in church.

Anyways, I found out last Friday that the finalists for the nationwide categories of this year’s Philippine Blog Awards were already announced and the complete list posted on the PBA official website. I was happy to find out that JaypeeOnline is once again a finalist in the Technology category.

It’s quite a long list, but I just wanted to share it with you guys:

    Congrats Jaypee! I was also one of the finalists in the Best Business Blog category. But I think I have slim chances of winning given other veteran co-finalists.

    @jco – The first time I was nominated and became a finalist in the Philippine Blog Awards, I wasn’t expecting it. All I can say is do your best and never give up. ;)

    Thanks for the compliments and words of encouragement. Wish you all the best! :)
