I am very happy to report that this blog, MelvinBlog.com has been nominated for this year’s Bloggys awards night! That in itself is a big honor as we all know there are many talented bloggers in the country and being recognized as one of them means a lot. But it doesn’t end there as I have also been invited to come to their Philippine Blogging Awards “Gala Night” this coming November 21 2015. Really, what more can I ask for?
To those not familiar, Bloggys is a premiere blog awarding event in the Philippines that aims to showcase the finest blogs in the country. It is a fairly new project but after spending some time browsing their site, I got excited with their plans not just with this year’s awards night but also going forward.
I truly believe Filipino bloggers are talented and I’m not just talking about the big ones, but also small to mid-sized bloggers. Imagine if people are able to maintain their blogs by creating content and designing things, marketing and engaging with other people via various medium, and then do it on a consistent basis then isn’t that something special? That’s why I think having a blogging awards body in the country is something that we bloggers deserve.

I haven’t really been as active as I used to and I was vocal about that in many of my previous posts. I have also decided to become more laid back with my posting opting to just write content as ideas come, as opposed to planning what to write, then batch-writing on a set topic, and then publishing them strategically.
Blogging has allowed me to really blossom as a person and also help me with my career. If not for it, I don’t think I’d be nearly as competitive as I am now but also have the opportunities that I have been fortunate enough to get. That’s why I keep on pushing new bloggers to continue to do it especially if they’re passionate about it. The benefits may not be direct and obvious, but over time it can really help your career as it did to me.
Before I forget, make sure to vote for my blog (voting begins on October 5) if you like my blog but otherwise feel free to vote for other blogs even in other categories if you happen to be reading them. It’s a very charming way of saying ‘thank you’ and for valuing their work as well.
I was also invited to come to their Gala Night this coming November 21 2015. The event is a red carpet, invite-only event for active bloggers but others can also come to the event for a fee. Nonetheless, the event is an exciting one as there will definitely be plenty of fine people to network to and pick ideas from. As you know I tend to be taciturn during events thanks to my ‘shyness’. I guess this is another attempt for me to improve on that and be more communicative with other bloggers.
Again, you can attend this event even if you’re not invited. If you’re interested in attending, you can reserve for tickets here. Hurry up as tickets are running out fast!
