4th Philippine Blog Awards – I’m a Finalist!
You know, I must be doing something right with this whole blogging thing. I mean, seriously. I often catch myself staring blankly at my homepage, wondering why the hell people read this blog, if they even read it at all. 80% of my articles contain the words fuck, penis, bajina, bitchplz and kthnxbilolz. If I were working for a publication, I would’ve been fired on my first day. Good thing, I’m not and I’m the boss of my own blog.
Why did I bring that up, you may ask… Well, ‘coz my three readers (I heard there’s seven of you now!), I’m once again a finalist for the Philippine Blog Awards’ Best Blog- Personal/Diary Category. How the fuck did that happen? I’m not complaning, okay? >___> It’s my third year in a row and I’ve only been blogging on funnysexy.ph for 3 years. So it’s like… PWNFACEBITCH.
Did you see the other finalists? So I even stand a chance??? Ria Jose? Ralph Guzman? Heck, THE Jim Paredes beat us finalists last year! Why don’t we just play chess? LOL. But I don’t care, I still feel super osm. IMO it’s the most special category since it’s not niche and there’s a lot more personal blogs out there than any other niche blogs. But it works fine with me since I’m narcissistic and have this belief that the world needs to know how I cook adobo or who my favorite Japanese gay porn stars are.
But wait, there’s more! I almost fell off my chair when I found out today that I’m also a finalist for other Special Awards like:
Top Post for 2010
Alam Mong Sikat Ka Kung
An Open Letter to the One Who Loves Me
Top Three Video Post and Podcast for 2010
Awesome! All my nominated entries pretty much made it and I feel like a winner already. I’m not gonna be a hypocrite, I hope I win even just one award. It’s gonna be soooo cool, don’t you think? Non-compromised content does pay off, after all (but I’d definitely let you guys know if and when I decide to come up with uhm, an events/PR blog where I can post your press releases lol).
You know, I never considered myself a “writer”, although for me, writing is like eating rice or grinding my teeth at night – it’s part of my existence. I never won any USTetika awards and I ave always been shy about showing my “literary pieces” to my writer friends. I couldn’t even get printed on Inquirer’s Young Blood.
So I just said fuck you all, I’m gonna write (or make a vlog of) what’s in my heart. I’m not gonna follow your rules but I’m not gonna go against them, either. I will write for my sanity because heaven knows I will go mad if I don’t convert my thoughts into words. Besides, if I was given this talent, what else would I use it for? For all I know, some people might even find my ramblings inspiring (or laxativical)!
Win or lose, I just wanna thank y’all for lending a piece of your time to read my crack and angst. Don’t worry, next time, I’m really gonna take off my clothes already.
ps: I had so many nominations, it has led me to believe that maybe the judges/people who screened have seen my sex scandal video on Flippish and may secretly be in love with me. OMG PLOT FTW!
