My Top 10 List to congratulate and thank for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs EB

My Top 10 List to congratulate and thank for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs EB.

Permit me to extend my warmest greetings and congratulations to the following:
1. The winners of the Top Ten Emerging Influential Bloggers of 2008

I'm happy that 4 of my nominees won. Though of course I might have selected a few others there had I encountered their blogs before tonight. Maybe they should put a separate category for food blogs next year, there being so many of them hehe...

2. The 10 winners of $100 each! (libre naman dyan hehe...) They are, drawn in this order, nos. 53, 61, 6, 2, 71, 31, 92, 24, 28 and 75 of this list. And can I just add somewhat bitterly, that my own no. is 25--a close but no cigar situation right there.

3. The sponsors for the writing projects: Major sponsor YesPinoy and the minor sponsors PRC Board Exam Results,, and Fil-Am Yellow Pages. They're responsible for the $100 raffle prizes I think.

4. The sponsors of tonight's eyeball: Slycesoft Games Development and Legend Hotels International Corporation)--thank you for the homey and elegant venue and filling dinner.

5. Janette Toral of course! Thank you for doing this. I'm sure a lot of bloggers, particularly newbies like me are encouraged by projects such as this. Congratulations for a job well done! :)

Now I know it's going to be tough to fit in everyone I need to thank on the next 5 spots, so I'm going to cheat a bit and use the "sum is greater than its part" rule.

6-10. All those who participated in this writing project without whom the art and possibly the science of blogging in the Philippines will be hard-pressed improving as it continually does each year.
