I received the email from them last October 28, 2019 and to be honest, I did not expect it at all.
Here is the happy mail 🙂
If you are not familiar with BCBA let me tell you more about this award giving body.
The Best Cebu Blogs Awards (BCBA) is a yearly Awarding Ceremony of Cebu-based Bloggers. BCBA is the only and pioneering award giving body that recognizes the existence of blogs and bloggers in Cebu’s blogosphere. It acknowledges the existence and importance of Cebu Bloggers in the Visayas and in the Philippines. BCBA aims to recognize the finest blogs by Cebuanos and Cebu-based bloggers which are at par even with their foreign counterparts.
Best Cebu Blogs Awards is organized and handled by Blogger Volunteers headed by Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. Founder Mark M. Monta. Judges for the Best Cebu Blogs Awards By Niches are changing every year. Most of them came from Manila, Cagayan De Oro, Ilo-ilo, General Santos, Davao and of course, a home-based judge here in Cebu.
The 12th Best Cebu Blogs Awards Ceremony will be hosted once and for all by the one and only Queen of Kitty Katkats, Alem Garcia. BCBA is set to happen this coming November 30, 2019 at Summit Galleria Cebu. All the winners from 8 different categories who will have the highest score based on the evaluation of this year’s judges will be acknowledged and take home some amazing prizes.
Each of the 8 Best Cebu Blogs by Niche Winners will receive:
- A special and customized trophy of Best Cebu Blogs Awards 2019
- Gift Certificates (from Sponsors and partners)
- Tokens (from Sponsors)
MY TAKE AS ONE OF THE FINALISTS
Being one of the finalists once again this year for #BCBA2019 makes me feel energised and fueled to do what I do because it gives me more reason to continue the only thing I can call my own – blogging.
This year is my tenth year anniversary but although I have grown to love the art called blogging, I never thought that it would open a lot of growth and opportunities for me not just for my personal growth but also on my self -esteem and my career.
I have gained confidence in myself through every blog that I have written and also gained a few friends online whom I only know through their stories and by reading and following their blogs.
Blogging also gave me an avenue to work with online entrepreneurs and even gave me the opportunity to earn money while being at home with my kids.
I started this blog as a personal blog to write down my personal thoughts on things but then has evolved into an open book where I share about my life as a mom of two, small business owner and a blogger. This blog has evolved also to feature the unwavering love and dedication of mothers in the Philippines and how they strive to make ends meet. The community of moms is very much alive in the online world and I have always wanted to share my knowledge to my fellow moms. It’s always been my pleasure to be a part of the bloggers recognized for honing their craft with the mission of helping and inspiring others along the way.
