The country’s most prestigious blog awards is now accepting nominations. 🙂

The Philippine Blog Awards has recognized Filipino blog sites for the past four (five?) years. I first heard of them in 2003, when my good Christian buddy Rick Manzano secured a nomination for Filipino Blogger of the Year. In 2005, this blogger’s old website, Superblessed, was a finalist in the Most Informative Blog category, eventually finishing a happy runner-up to Doc Emer’s Parallel Universes.

Today, in its fourth (fifth?) installment, the most prestigious national blog recognition body in the nation has increased from an original four categories – Filipino Blogger of the Year, Most Informative Blog Site of the Year, Photoblog of the Year, and Best Blog Site of the Year – to an impressive ten:

  • Best Technology Blog
  • Best Travel Blog
  • Best Entertainment Blog
  • Best Personal Blog
  • Best Home & Living Blog
  • Best Socio-Political Blog
  • Best News & Media Blog
  • Best Business/Entrepreneur Blog
  • Best Sports & Recreation Blog
  • Best Fashion & Lifestyle Blog
  • Best Photo Blog
  • Podcast of the Year Award

If you know of a worthy blog, then scoot on over to the official website of the Philippine Blog Awards and nominate that blog on or before February 28, 2007.

By the way, if anyone from the Philippine Blog Awards happens to swing by this entry, may I humbly suggest a ‘History’ or ‘About Us’ page? Having seen the growth of your blog awards through the years, recognizing the growing impact of your endeavor through a retrospective would be giving credit to whom it’s due – you guys.
