This is the fourth installment of The Road to the Philippine Blog Awards: Finalists’ Spotlight, an ongoing blog series here on The Four-eyed Journal wherein we try to get behind the scenes of the upcoming Philippine Blog Awards by having the Finalists share their thoughts on the awards and being one of the top contenders by answering ten questions that are simple, while some are provocative.
We already had Bikoy.net, Lastleaf.org and Misteryosa.com take the spotlight all of them being finalists in the Personal blog category. In this chapter, we put on the spotlight a Finalist from the Technology blog category. Representing the Mac enthusiasts in the Philippines, PinoyMacLovers.
PinoyMacLovers came to being for two reasons which according to site creator Albert;
(1) a resource and information page for Mac enthusiasts and potential Mac switchers in the Philippines, and
(2) an online community for Pinoy Mac enthusiasts from all over the world that will enable them to share their own comments and contributions on all things Apple
A question begs, “Who wants to switch to a Mac computer?” If you’re among those who’d say “I do!” (me included) then visiting PinoyMacLovers is a must. It has loads of resources on how to get more bang out of your Mac and where to buy one in the Philippines if you want one.
A passionate voice for a unique community of Pinoy techies, Mac enthusiasts in particular, it’s no wonder PinoyMacLovers has become one of the Finalists in the Technology blog category of the Philippine Blog Awards.
Talk about “Think Different”? Here’s what PinoyMacLovers think of being one of the Finalists…
1. How does it feel to be nominated for the PBA?
PinoyMacLovers: Warm and Fuzzy 🙂
2. Do you know who nominated you?
PinoyMacLovers: Yep. Hi, mom!
3. Why do you think your blog was nominated?
PinoyMacLovers: I’d like to think it’s because of my excellent writing skills. Haha! I dunno really, I’m just happy to make it to the finals. *big smile* The last time I was nominated for something was way back in high school. I played a crazy, homeless person in our class play and got nominated for best supporting actor. I think I won that actually.
4. Who do you think will win in your category?
PinoyMacLovers: Oh I think we’re already winners. All of us (I sound like a Miss Universe candidate).
5. Why do you think you should win?
PinoyMacLovers: Refer to #4 🙂
6. What would you do if you win?
PinoyMacLovers: I would thank the academy.
7. What do you think of the Philippine blog awards?
PinoyMacLovers: I think it’s great! It’s always nice to give recognition to people for all their hard work. Especially if the recognition is given by fellow peers.
8. Is there a blog that’s not nominated but deserves to be nominated in the PBA?
PinoyMacLovers: Yeah, I’m sure. There are a gazillion Pinoy blogs out there and I’m sure lots of them are really cool and just sitting in a small corner in cyberspace waiting to be discovered. And that means we’ll just have more great batches of nominees in the years to come.
9. Would you join the next Philippine blog awards?
PinoyMacLovers: Yeah, why not? Although I’m not sure what you mean by “join”. If it means bribing someone to nominate me again then maybe not. I already did that this year. LOL
10. Any messages to your fellow nominees?
PinoyMacLovers: Hello, fellow nominees! I would like to extend a virtual hand shake to all of you. See you at the show! 🙂
Thank you PinoyMacLovers for being such a sport and doing this project with me. Mac lovers and enthusiasts watch out, as public voting for the Finalists would soon be open and it’s time to show support for your choice in the Philippine Blog Awards.
