The 2008 Top Ten Filipino Expats and OFW Bloggers
… and the winner is…
Writing on Air, Australia by Jim Paredes.
Wow! Congratulations po… It just shows how real an artist Sir Jim is… a super musician, a photographer, and a writer… and there’s probably more. Astig. Sayang cause the closest I got to Sir Jim was having this one chance to have a picture taken with him (not really him, but a picture of him — the APO actually, hehe.) inside Thirdline, Inc. with the Dmitri peeps. Ah, fun times!
Anyway, here are excerpts from the BlogAwards official blog regarding Writing on Air:
“Meaningful and inspiring posts”… “Brings out pride in being Filipino”… Writing on Air has depth and substance. Jim’s blog is brilliant and inspiring. His take on issues around the world and as well as personal experiences are culturally enriching as a Filipino. “The lay-out and design is clean” Some of the judges notes about Jim Paredes blog.
