I started blogging at the now defunct Sinjin.PH in 2007. I was 17 years old then. A year later, my blog got recognized as the Top 1 blog at the 1st-ever Best Cebu Blogs Awards in 2008.
In 2010, I closed my personal blog and shifted to my travel blog, Libotero, which ultimately would become the brand that I will be recognized for through the years until today.
With time though comes age. I super love traveling but over time, I had decreasing stamina for travels. I still would take leisurely trips from time to time but I have slowly shifted my niche to lifestyle, events and food. With age also comes wisdom, which inspired me to reopen my personal blog last year, albeit with a different domain name.
Hello Glorious! I am happy to share that SINJIN.LIFE is a Finalist at the Best Cebu Blogs Awards 2019 under the Best Cebu Personal Blog category.
My heart is overflowing with gratitude because this is something unexpected. Who would have thought that 11 years after being recognized at the 1st BCBA, MAY ASIM PA ako? CALOCA. It excites me that I am a finalist alongside younger and newer bloggers, but hello, I’m also still young, and I look younger than my age (Thank you, Bodyworx Medical Spa!). Hahaha.
Being pre-selected to be one of the top three finalists on my category is already like winning so I would like to thank whoever nominated me for making me realize that the ultimate goal of anyone should not be instant fame or success, but endurance and longevity. To my readers, followers, family, friends, THANK YOU! To my bashers, thanks also for enlightening me of my shortcomings. 😉
BCBA 2019 Awards Night is on November 30, 2019, 6PM at Summit Galleria Cebu.
I would also like to thanks the generous SPONSORS of the ONLY prestigious blog award-giving body in Cebu, all of them I have worked with over the years, for making this event possible: Cebu Pacific, Megaworld, PLDT-Smart, Realme, Krispy Kreme, BPI, Pancake House, Starbucks, Teriyaki Boy, Red Ribbon, Sizzlin’ Steak and Summit Galleria Cebu!
XOXO. Stay Glorious!
