I love blogging. I really do. Who would have thought that this hobby of mine would open the door of greater opportunities in my life? Through blogging, I started to meet new people who share the same interests with me. It was only last year that I became a member of Davao Bloggers Society. In the said organization, I was able to bond with my co-bloggers and share beautiful moments with them. In the second quarter of 2013, I was appointed as Content Manager (officer) during the annual Davao Bloggers Acquaintance event. With our official and non-official events, I was given a chance to meet other bloggers all over the Philippines. Just recently, I went to Manila to meet some of the beautiful persons I met in the blogging world. Last week, I also spent some time with Cebu Bloggers, Manila Bloggers and Pinoy Travel Bloggers who visited our city for the Kadayawan 2013.
In 2012, I received recognition through Davao Blog Awards. The Coffee Chic is awarded as the Best Personal Blog and I was awarded as Blogger of the Year. I must admit, I did not expect such appreciation from the Davao blogging community but deep down in my heart, I felt happy. I am glad that there are other people who recognize all the efforts I put into blogging. I am a passionate blogger because I truly love what I do.
The Davao Bloggers Society organized the Social Media Day 2013 in Davao. During the said event, I received another award from Globe Tattoo - Tatt Triple Threat Award (Tatt Awards 2013).
Tattoo Triple Threat: The most prominent online personalities from both Davao and Cebu making waves in the Philippine social media community through three platforms: a blog (Blogger, Wordpress, Tumblr, etc.), a microblog (Twitter, Plurk, Facebook, etc.), and a gallery of photos/video (Instagram, Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, etc.)
The Philippines amounts as one of the biggest users of the internet. In fact, it is the social networking capital of the world. Whether on blogs, Facebook, Twitter or Youtube; the Pinoys' creativity, wit, and command for the medium are truly amazing. That is why Globe Tattoo created the Tatt Awards - a ground breaking avenue that recognizes individuals who share Tattoo's fiery passion for greatness, founded on individuality and a sincere interest to lead by sharing with others.
In every community, there's always a voice that ignites conversations and inspires action. In every corner of our archipelago, there are people who stand out and make waves. Celebrate the best in social media from Cebu and Davao in this year's Tatt Awards Pilipinas 2013. - TattAwards2013.com
Thank you Globe Tattoo!
What I felt when I received the award. Happy, really happy. I created my blog way back in high school to simply have "something" where I can write my random thoughts and post unforgettable moments. As days passed by, I started to enjoy what I'm doing. I became more interested in updating my then online journal. I read some articles about the how-to's and what-to-do's in blogging. I also talked to my friends who are into blogging and asked for advice from them. One of my friends whom I met in UP was ate Gagay. She helped me choose the name for my site and even volunteered in getting my own domain name. Then, the rest is history.
Where I am now is because of the people who continuously support me in what I do and believe that I can do it. They are the ones who inspire me to continue blogging despite the demands of my personal life and my law school studies. Receiving awards like the Tatt Triple Treat (Tatt Awards 2013) makes me love blogging more.
