One Blogging Nation: The 2009 Philippine Blog Awards

It was yet another exciting evening as more than a hundred bloggers from Metro Manila and in some parts of Luzon flocked to the PETA Theatre in Quezon City. It's the 3rd year of the Philippine Blog Awards and as promised by its hardworking organizers, this year will be bigger than ever before!
I'm sure it will be as last night was just the first of three legs of the Awards Nights. The second will be at the Ayala City Sports in Cebu City and the 3rd will be at the Pearlmond Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City. This year, you can really say that the PBA will be able to reach the bloggers in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao!

Allow me to share with you the list of winners for the Luzon leg:

    I was able to watch some parts of it onlive via Flippish.com's live stream but it was choppy at most parts and unfortunately, they didn't get the part where they announced the winner of the Best Technology category. :(

    Anyways, wish you all the best and more power to you and your blog! :)
