I was so nervous that night that I decided not to cite this long acceptance speech so I posted it here instead. Here it goes:
Thank you for the recognition and also for allowing me to be a part of the awards night.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Philippine Blogger Awards Inc., who organized the magnificent evening to acknowledge us, anonymous bloggers, of our contribution to the web by way of blogging through our chosen niche;
To the board committees and judges, well-known and are successful in their own fields of expertise, who took their time and participated in the event;
To the sponsors who gave their commitments to make the night happen;
To the untiring volunteers and supporters from the Philippine Blogging Community who helped the organization and also us in their own little ways;
and most of all, to the readers both here and abroad, whether its a single page view or a couple of minutes in our blog, it means a lot to me.
Again, thank you. Blog on!
