Yup, you see that right! we’ve been nominated for the fiction and literature category!
Never in my dreams would I have thought that someone out there deemed us worthy of being nominated for an actual awarding body (and one that has a gala, nonetheless!) for bloggers. When I received an e-mail not too long ago about being nominated for the Philippine Blogging Awards, my eyes went wide with shock and excitement. Seriously?! Real, living, breathing people actually nominated The Social Potato?! This fledgling of a blog that talks about books, sitting pretty in one small corner of the Internet?!
I’m shocked, elated, and honestly, very honored. To the people who nominated us, thank you so much. It warms my heart to know that you love our posts, reviews, and discussion posts so much that you would go that extra mile (heck, I didn’t even know this awarding body existed!). And now we’re here and we’ve made it to the voting stage!
(*whispers to Rashika, Aimee, and Aentee: woohoo, guys! WE DID IT! We’re legit hotshots now! Just kidding! But it’s fun to dream…)
I’m not in any form of illusion as to think we’d actually win the category we were nominated for. Thousands and thousands of blogs have been nominated, and The Social Potato is only one of very many. The winner will be judged by a panel of excellent judges, and I’m certain there are multitudes of blogs out there who are better at this than we are. BUT, there is the People’s Choice award where the winner will be decided by the number of votes. This is where you wonderful people come in! And here is my plea:
If you love, like, admire, and worship The social potato, and you believe in us (the bloggers), we would appreciate, APPRECIATE, your vote and support!
Here’s how you can help us:
1.) Click this link (blogs that start from T-Z).
2.) Look for the blog thesocialpotato.maryfaye.net and check the box next to it.
3.) Fill in your details and vote!
If you voted for us, THANK YOU SO MUCH! We super duper mega ultra appreciate the support. If you didn’t, we still thank you anyway because hey, you’re here, you’re allocating time to read our posts and random gibberish, and that’s cool, too! No matter the outcome, it’s already so much to know that we have been nominated by people who believed in us. That, in and of itself, is already more than enough.
