bcba 2016 thank you header

I never thought that I would get to this point. Blogging for me was simply just a hobby back in high school. I never really took blogging so seriously until late last year. At the time, I knew people who I met in college that are actively blogging. Those people inspired me to join a blogging group that would help me jumpstart my blogging career.

Enter the Cebu Blogging Community.

Despite my desire to learn more, I hesitated to join at first. I really wanted to know more but people might judge me there. Good thing I didn’t waver and went with it. Who would have known that I would get to the BCBA 2016? Let alone, win anything!

The 9th Best Cebu Blogs Awards (BCBA 2016) happened last November 27, 2016. It recognizes the best bloggers of this year in various niches. At first I thought it would feel nervous for most of the time, but I was fine after a few minutes. It helps when you have friends regardless of affiliation. Hehe.

I was with Rea of Blissful Snapshots and John of Four-Eyed Laagan who were both Finalists in their respective niches. Rea was a Finalist in the Photo Blog niche while John was in the Travel niche. We had a great time during the event! The best part was that none of us left without an award!

Congratulations to Rea for grabbing the Best Cebu Photo Blogger award and to John for getting Best Creative Writing in a Blog! Despite me being relatively new to the blogging scene, I actually bagged the Best Cebu Technology Blogger award!

Really grateful but I know this is just the start.

I really can’t believe I got this award! It’s really an honor to receive this. Despite that, I realized one important thing. I shouldn’t let this get into my head. I know that this is just the beginning for me. Despite this success, I should keep pushing myself to greater heights. I should never settle with just this. Although I’ve reached this, I shouldn’t rest on my laurels. I should think different.


I’m forever grateful to the Cebu Blogging Community, particularly the great #HIBsters for being the support system that I need to get through this. I also want to thank my family, my girlfriend, and my friends for being there for me from the time this used to be a hobby until now.

After the event, we were hanging out with people! Hehe.

And that was it for the BCBA 2016! The unfortunate news is that I am not allowed to join next year’s Best Cebu Blogs Awards. Hehe. I hope you continue to read and support my blog! On to more blogging!

  1. Congrats to us!! Going there TBH was like facing a battle and we were like the trio army hahaha. It was a fun experience nonetheless and I’m happy we all went home with awards. True enough, this is not the end all-be all of our blogging life but only the beginning of something great.
