The blogosphere, Twitter-verse, and many netizens have been abuzz the past few weeks about the coming Globe Tatt Awards for outstanding Filipino bloggers in different categories. Three days ago, I read in the Writer’s Block website that Globe is giving away free passes for the awarding ceremonies to be held this evening in Manila Pen’s Rigodon Ballroom. There’s no thinking twice on my part! First, it is easy to join. You only have to blog about your favorite finalists and “why he/she deserves to win in the category where they are nominated.”
Once you’re done, tweet the title and URL of the blog entry with the #TattAwards hashtag before 12 noon of August 25 (which coincidentally is my birthday). Second, the event is an excellent time for me to meet popular bloggers and even media personalities (read: photo opportunities with The Heckler and Ms Maria Ressa!). I wrote about The Professional Heckler, and much to my surprise, he read and replied to it (see this blog: http://rightonthemark.wordpress.com/2011/08/24/why-the-professional-heckler-rocks-for-me/ )! So last night, I was notified via Twitter (@marksphere) that I have won two passes. I am already so excited for the event! This promises to be a very memorable time for me.
The awards cereminy will be held in this function room: http://www.peninsula.com/Manila/en/Occasions/Venues/Function_Rooms/The_Rigodon_Ballroom/default.aspx
