What Paolo Eats

BCB 2010

with 7 comments

I’m happy to announce that this blog made it to the Top 20 qualifiers for the Best Cebu Blogs of 2010. I am also admittedly shocked and well, humbled, as the other bloggers in the top 20 are far more, say, experienced than I am. There are many who have been blogging much longer than I have. There are those who understand HTML codes much more than I do. There are some who have advertisers and/or earn money from their blogs, both of which I do not have the benefit of.

What Paolo Eats is like, what, isn’t even two months old yet , but I am still grateful that it got into the top 20. I am aware that there are so many other blogs better than mine, but nevertheless, I would like to say thank you to everyone who liked my blog on BCB’s Facebook page (of course, my skills at shameless self-promotion helped… and so did those of my family and a few friends). Thank you also to Mikey Sanchez for the nomination.

I have been invited to the awarding ceremony on December 12, 2010, at Sugbutel’s penthouse. I’m excited to meet the other bloggers, but I’m also nervous at the same time. What will they think of me?! I’ll seem like such a novice next to them. Hahahaha. I tend to let my thoughts run wild… sometimes they run amuck.

Let me end this post by thanking Best Cebu Blog Awards’ Sponsors. Without the following, this would not have been made possible:
