This year, ESSAYS.PH established an event which gave prestigious honors to the blogging industry here in the country. And it took place 21 November 2015 at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura, Taguig.
Dubbed as #bloggys2015, The 2015 Philippine Blogging Awards has been a promising one, with thousands of nominations trimmed into selected finalists in different categories such as arts and entertainment, lifestyle, news, politics, fitness, and more.
Yours truly was one of the invited to its gala night held at the said venue. As a nominee and an observer, I had some few takeaways from bloggyis, but for the meantime here are the results as published on bloggys.ph
Best Arts and Entertainment Blog – The Googly Gooeys Best Beauty and Fashion Blog – Project Vanity Best Business and Finance Blog – Tycoon Philippines Best Corporate and Brand Blog – ASKSonnie Best Family and Relationships Blog – Teach With Joy Best Fiction and Literature Blog – Michael’s Shades Of Blue Blog Best Food and Dining Blog – Pepper.ph Best Health and Fitness Blog – Pinoy Fitness Best Lifestyle and Hobbies Blog – When in Manila Best Nature and Environment Blog – Living with Nature Best News and Events Blog – The DailyPedia Best Personal Blog – Life Is so Full of Tae Best Photo Blog – Two2Travel Best Society and Politics Blog – Raissa RoblesBest Sports and Recreation Blog – Pinoy Mountaineer Best Technology and Internet Blog – Back2Gaming Best Travel and Places Blog – Biyaherong Barat
Best Blog Post – The Endocrine Witch Best Design – Pepper.ph Bloggys 2015 People’s Champion – Controversy Extraordinary
Bloggys 2015 Champion – Pepper.ph
Meantime, here’s my take. There might be a bit of controversies prior to setting the event (I remember there was a Twitter feud regarding the naming rights and corrections), but overall I can say Bloggys2 2015 was a good start. A lot of stalls which offered awesome entertaining way, an open bar which actually made me realized there’s a lot of good mixes I have yet to try on drinking (laughs). I guess sooner, as the event folds annually, more bloggers will be more appreciative and as the program rolls on. I get it: me and my friend SailorStarCatcher actually argued about the use of applause, and I think the host Matthew Urbano wasn’t a bad thing. He did his job for; I just hope the crowd will appreciate that more soon.
Anyway, congrats, Paul and the rest of Essays.PH! I know you can do Bloggys again soon. Keep giving recognition to every single blogger out there and especially to the prospect top ones by 2016.
