As a PBA finalist, I'm gloating, sad and afraid

I'm honored...(and unashamedly gloating!) but I'm equally sad and afraid.
I self-nominated my blog at Philippine Blog Awards and I luckily landed as one of the finalists.

That's the gloating part.

I was hoping to see other Kablogs in the list like The Pink Tarha, Ed's Sandbox, Azel's Panunumbalik, Wits and Nuts, RJ's Chook-minder's Quill, NJ's Desert Aquaforce, etc because I honestly believe they deserve to be there more than I. (And by 'etc' I mean practically all those OFW blogs listed in my Blogroll).

That's the sad part. I don't think they need validation as much as I did.

The afraid part is that, like in Oscar's, most who won the Best Actress trophies (okay, the comparison is sooo way off but that's the closest thing I can think of right now), end up without a decent follow-up movie. Not that I am sure of winning because I gauged my co-finalists as better written, more OFW-ish in subject than mine but if in case I do (God forbid), I pray that my blog doesn't suffer the same fate as the Oscar's best actress winners. (Okay...this qualifies as partly afraid and partly gloating!).

Finally, I'm glad to see Pope's Palipasan, Baul ni Noel, Tambay sa Dubai and (sorry for missing you, Rey, when I first posted this) Rey Asis' As Is as among the OFW finalists and Ever's Pamatay Homesick too as a finalist in another category. Way to go Mideast OFWs! Way to go Kablogs!

    Ayan! Congratulations, Isla de Nebz for making it to the finals! o",)

    May nag-nominate sa akin (si Mr. Thoughtskoto) pero hindi ako sumali... Hindi ko kasi alam ang pasikut-sikot nitong Philippine Blog Awards. Baka next year...

  3. The Pope says:

    Congrats Nebz, I was nominated by Kenjie and have never expected be a finalist... I took it as a blessing given the 9 month old existence of Palipasan.

    And yes, you are right, I was expecting to bloggers from Kablogs like The Pink Tarha Girls, RJ, NJ and Azel... who are real bloggers that deserve to be in that PBA roster.

    I admit I was afraid and uncertain being a newbie in this type of event, but I regain my confidence upon seeing you Nebz in the list, 'di na ako nag-iisa'.

    Life is Beautiful Nebz, let's count our blessings.
