AMW Reports: The Philippine Blog Awards 2010

The Philippine Blog Awards, has been around for the fourth year!  As I walked in the Carlos P. Romulo auditorium, I can't help but look around and just feel blessed and happy that the Philippine Blogging industry has gone a long way!  I can still remember the first post I've done and how tiny the photo I chose because I don't want people to recognize me! *duh* Why put a photo if you don't want people to recognize you?  Call me weird, but I was!  Still am!  *lol*

Look what I've become now!  LOL Years of practice, face turned thicker a couple of centimeters per year!

Back to the Philippine Blog Awards..I am glad to be invited to this event not only as a blogger but ...yours truly is a finalist for the Best Beauty and Fashion Blog division!  I did not bagged the award but let me tell you why I felt like a winner!

AskMeWhats came to be a blog that gives me the chance to speak out what I want to share to the world!  I may want to start this originally as an advise column but I didn't mind giving advises on Beauty and Fashion instead!  

I can still remember that fateful day when I got my first reader comment, "Liz" from Dublin, you were my first commenter and I won't forget that!  It was the best feeling in the world!  Then the reader comments started to pour in, and I found myself enjoying post after post sharing what I learn!  You guys where there for me all throughout, and I'm glad to say, I've found wonderful friends in blogging!  

Here are some highlights on who I met during The Philippine Blog Awards 2010...

Vaseline Girls Unite!
with Ada and Hannah

AMW with DJ Vince from When in Manila,
Hannah and found a new friend Kristel

AMW with the Food Bloggers
L-R John, Frances, Richard, Irene and Carlos

And let's not forget, my beauty blogging friend Shen 
was also there with me!
(*waves hi* to the rest of Team E)
