The 2007 Philippine Blog Awards: Ivan About Town is Best Travel Blog!

Ivan About Town was named Best Travel Blog at 2007 Philippine Blog Awards! I found out about it from text messages of fellow finalists Bikoy and Karlo who were there at the event. It was depressing not being able to attend since I had wanted to meet fellow bloggers whom I've known only through their blogs. But it was physically impossible for me to travel from Batangas City to Makati in time for the event.

Again, my heartfelt gratitude goes to the organizers, judges, volunteers and fellow bloggers who made this event a great success! Do let me know when the next Pinoy bloggers' gathering is. My appreciation goes as well to all of you who take time to read what I have to say. Let's all travel around the Philippines! It's such a beautiful country! Thanks again!

  37. [...] and the Philippines Blog Awards were announced at a ceremony in Manila. I haven't had time to look at the myriad winners, but the travel division featured an outstanding blog by a graduate student in Manila who has apparently backpacked throughout the archipelago and posted stories and photos of every nook and cranny of the country. Excellent job, Ivan, and congratulations! ...Ivan Henares Blog [...]

  47. Sir, congratulations! I'm so happy I've discovered your blog! I actually found out about it when I attended the Philippine Blog Awards 2007 with my daughter. I, too, am an advocate of Heritage sites in our country. I'm a travel freak as well, though not as well-traveled as you are. Unfortunately, I don't have the means (yet) to put my advocacy into action. I hope to link with you. The name of my blog is ALAS FILIPINAS. It's in Spanish, though. I hope to reach out to our remaining Spanish-speaking Filipinos, and to "advertise" our country to her sisters, the Spanish-speaking communities of the world. Again, congratulations, and more power!
    PS: I've already added you to my site. Hope you'd do the same. =)
