One of the winners was Sir Avel Manansala of Bariles Republic who was from General Santos city and a fellow SOCCSKSarGen blogger. His blog becomes the definitive source of bits and pieces of info about the Tuna Capital of the Philippines. And in-behalf of him, I (subbed) received the award for being identified as one of the new and emerging blogs that were making an impact to its readers in this year and were gradually gaining a considerable amount of readership and influence online.

I hope more bloggers will be inspired by the ways and styles of these deem influential bloggers to effect change, empower the new generation of Filipinos, and free expression.

Congratulations to the winners!
