Writing on Air

Writing on Air by Jim Paredes

Best Personal Blog 2009!

Posted on October 09, 2009 by jimparedes

I just found out about an hour ago via Twitter that this humble blog was awarded the Best Personal Blog at the Philippine Blog Awards which is still ongoing as I write this. I thank you, my dear readers, commenters, fellow bloggers and the people at the Philippine Blog Awards for this wonderful honor. I thank my Pansitan sponsor Gigi Manoloto-Refugia for hosting Writing On Air, and other interesting blogs.

This is uber coolness! True to the spirit of cyber communication, I was informed of the awards via social networking (specifically, Manolo Quezon III’s tweet from Manila around 8PM but early this morning in Toronto), and I gave my thanks via the same route. Amazing. It’s a new world. We connect in a new way that no other generation has ever done.

The congratulatory tweets, the facebook comments are quite overwhelming. Though I am not able to go up the podium and say thanks to everyone, from room1226 at the Novotel in Misasssauga and alone in my room, I bow before all of you in humility and gratitude.
