Philippine Blog Awards 2008

During the nominations last April, I told my friend that my only wish is to be one of the finalists, kahit token tagalog entry lang. After seeing my entry on the list of finalists yesterday, I felt like I have accomplished something already.

The description from pba2008's site says that the post should inspire the readers. That convinced me that I really have no chance of winning. After reading the other entries, I can't help but notice that mine is a little shallow compared to the rest. What made me happy was despite the lack of seriousness and depth of my post, the people behind pba2008 saw something special that made my entry a part of the list.

I'm proud of myself for making it to the finals. It's the Philippine Blog Awards! It's like the Palanca Awards for bloggers! Ok, that is not true. It's still pretty huge though. Losing won't stop me from bragging. I don't have much to be proud of lately, I need this! I already ordered seven shirts that say "Hey I'm a finalist for Philippine Blog Awards 2008! Dare to ask if I won and you're dead." I plan to wear them everyday. I also commissioned a few of my friends to follow me around, scream "Wow! si Abad ka diba? Finalist ka sa Philippine Blog Awards 2008!" and ask for my autograph.

I had no idea that the awards night was yesterday. Again, thanks to everyone who rooted for me. I will try to write here again. Salamat din sa kung sino mang nagpangalan sa akin ng Abad. :)

Here is the list of finalists for the Single Post under the Personal category.

Abad,anong pangalan mo?

Congratulations to the winner! Below is the entry from a truly deserving winner, Martin Perez.
