I joined the Philippine Blog Awards 2009 (PBA) without any expectations. To be named one of the finalists under the ‘News and Media’ category, least of all declared as the winner, was rewarding enough. I believe my other co-finalists are equally deserving of this award, I humbly share it with them.
To my co-winners, let us not rest on our laurels, winning is not the end of our work, but a beginning to work harder. We must continually challenge ourselves if we are to make a difference. Change starts from the heart, it permeates the soul and radiates the spirit. Only when we can achieve transformation within ourselves can we hope to influence others for the betterment of our nation.
So what did I get for winning the award? There’s of course the very nice and colorful ‘king of the road’ Philippine jeepney trophy, the envelope containing the winning entry of my category (yup, it says virtualjournals.net alright), a Nokia 6700 Classic courtesy of Nokia Philippines, a medal of sort that the organizers will be sending, and bragging rights for the next 365 days!
My heartfelt gratitude goes to the organizers, judges, and sponsors of this event.
Oh, and I almost forgot… Yey!!!
