A couple of days more and the nominations for the 8th Philippine Web Awards will be closed. yet, I wonder why there hasn’t been any really noise about it recently. Besides the fact that they have already started charging nominees for entry fees, everything else seems to be the same albeit bland and uneventfull.

I scoured their web site once more for any news but nada, and I wondered why they have not by any chance contemplated on putting up a seperate Award Category for Blogs. Well, why not? I believe blog is something totally seperable from a personal website although in their definition of a personal blog, they included it as “sites that center on one person or one group, such as family and friends, focusing on background and interests, i.e. personal homepages, personal blogs, barkada sites”. Aren’t blogs supposed to be personal?

It was just a thought. I reckon, this year, blogging has become one of the major movers and shakers of the Philippine Internet Industry and what better way to fully recognize it than by adding it (as a separate category) in the Philippine Web Awards.

On second thought, why not have our own separate Blog Awards?

I think Webbys should create blog categories to accommodate more entrants in next year’s awards. Blogs come in many forms, so there must be several categories for blogs alone. For example, there are blogs which are about the promotion of a certain place for tourists. Then there should be Tourism Blog category too. How about that?

nagpapayaman pala ng todo ang mga telcos na yan. As for the PWA, parang wala na yatang wenta. Nawala na yung dating appeal niya.
