I Won A Hundred Bucks!

I have resigned to the fact that I never win anything. I mean like the type of “win” where my name is picked out from a hundred or a thousand other names. To my surprise, lady luck stopped playing hard-to-get on me at the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2008 awards night! To think, I wasn’t even there! I’d like to thank Janette Toral for all the hard work she’s put into helping our local blogosphere get the recognition that it deserves. I know that I haven’t been the best of bloggers, but it does feel great to be part of such a vibrant community. I also want to congratulate my good friend Aileen for You Got Tech‘s win last night, as well as Fritz, Blogie, AJ and the young people behind Manila Foodistas.

I’d like to take this opportunity to plug another blogging event, Wordcamp Philippines, which I’m helping organize. Wordcamp will be held on September 6, 2008 at the College of St. Benilde on Taft Avenue. Registration is closed, but let me remind the ones who signed up that you have to blog about the event and include the links to the sponsors to be able to join. The t-shirts are already being produced. Thanks to those who preordered. They’re gonna be awesome!

Lastly, I thank random.org for helping me beat the odds! They’re the main reason why I’m $100 richer. Monies, I haz you!

    Thanks for the link, Drew. But my blog’s URL is davaodeli.com… but then again, I also registered davaodelicious.com, and it points to the same site. ๐Ÿ˜‰
