My First Philippines Blog Award Experience

The Mommy Journey was one of the 5 finalist for this year’s Best in Home and Parenting category in the Philippine Blog Awards. I was excited that my sister and my hubby accompanied me to attend my first blogger’s awards night. I really didn’t know what to expect in such events and aside from Michelle from MyMomFriday, who is also a finalist for the same category, I didn’t know anyone.

When we arrived at RCBC Plaza’s Carlos Palanca auditorium, the hallway was packed with bloggers already. We had a light dinner and by 7pm, the awarding ceremonies began. Gabe Mercado was the host for the night and he did a great job at keeping the crowd entertained all through out the night.
I didn’t win the award but I was really glad to have participated. Seeing all those bloggers, from every other category was a delight and makes me realize that I am not alone in this path. We are a diverse crowd but we all share the same passion for blogging. I was also reminded that we should not just stay behind our blogs but take part an active role in our society… we have to take initiatives and become advocates of what we believe in.
Beyong Blogging was the theme of this year’s awards night and that is what I intend to do in the following year. Congratulations to all the winners!
