Though the place and attendance was relatively smaller compared to the last time I attended at Philippine Blog Awards 2 in 2008 at 1 Esplanade, this one brings a lot of fun and humor since it was hosted by Gabe Mercado. You would always remember Gabe from the Yakult commercial, "Okey Ka Ba T'yan?"
Our partner blogs, "Pagod Ka Na Bang Maging si Juan?" and "The products Blog" also emerged as finalists for Best Blog - Society, Politics and History and Best Business Blog respectively.
During the event we met fellow blogger's mei Velas of MEILBOX and her husband JR Suarin who is also a food blogger; Vincent Haoson of Back2Gaming, who won two PBA 2010 Awards; Azrael Colladilla of Azrael's Merryland and Mike Abundo of The Mike Abundo Effect.
Interesting this year is the incident when the lady blogger Chicksilog won for the Philippine Blog Awards 2010 Blogger's Choice Award where she corrected the award presentors. The result Gabe Mercado ended up asking her permission is he also committed some pronunciation mistakes.
Anyway here are the winners of the Philippine Blog Awards 2010. Our congratulations to everyone including the nominees, finalists and winners.
