Seems Marketmanila has been nominated for two awards in this year’s Philippine Blog Awards. The first award is the Blogger’s Choice Award, which I understand will be selected based on votes of bloggers from around the world. In other words, it’s a bit of a popularity contest a la American idol… So I presume the blog with the most readers that vote is the one that will win… If you have enjoyed this site over the past few months and think it deserves the Blogger’s Choice Award, please go to this link and cast your vote. It feels VERY awkward to ask my readers to vote for me… a little self-centered, no?
The second award that Marketmanila is up for is in the category: Home & Living where this site is listed as one of the 5 finalists, along with fellow bloggers Lori, Anton, Toni, and a site I have just visited for the first time today by Nancy called Finestkind Clinic…
The winner of this category shall be selected by an esteemed panel of judges. And since I feel like I know 4 out of the 5 bloggers in this category, everyone should be considered a winner and any one of the finalists would be a great choice for the judges.
I am currently out of town, in a remote provincial location, which, believe it or not, has no internet connections, no electricity except for 6 hours in the evening and no reliable telephone connections. This is my adventure for the year, let’s see how I survive it. And just before I left Manila yesterday, I had serious computer problems so there is a shortage of stored posts. My apologies… In the meantine, if you are bored, check out my archives and read one of over 1,000 previous posts and I will be back to regular programming in a couple of days. Thanks again for your vote for the Philippine Blog Awards!
