Hi all,

Greetings from Saudi Arabia! How are you? Fine, thank you! Haha.

A lot of people and business entities as well as establishments and organizations indicated their desire to sponsor us. Thank you to you. In the next few weeks, we will post the media mileage that you will be getting as well as the benefit of joining us in this one-of-a-kind, historic awarding of the blogging heroes of our time.

You will also be a part of changing the future of two deserving but poor children, sending them to school, symbolic of our two years in PEBA.

A lot of people are asking what's the difference between PEBA and the other awards. Well, first and foremost PEBA is engaging, we are not just giving you awards and that's the end of it. Becoming a PEBA nominee requires an effort, becoming a PEBA winner is also demanding. But you guys and gals, being established people, waving proudly the Philippine flag wherever you are responding wholeheartedly, and without reservation to the challenges.

Thank you all. For me, you are all winners. For me, every PEBA Nominee are heroes in the truest since, not just to your families and relatives, but of your community and our country and the world you are working.

You still have one month to edit your entries and photos and videos. 1st of November, 12MN Philippines time, 7PM KSA, we will not accept entries anymore. We will be copying all your entries in a database ready for judging.

To those planning to join, you still have a month to submit your entry! JOIN NA!

We are calling all nominees to submit the following.

1. Profile Photos (passport size if you have, but anything no problem, we can crop it and resize it later) or if you don't want a solo pic, Photos of you with your family, or parents or siblings. Send it to

2. Video of you or picture with voice narration of your name or blog name or pseudonym, where is your location and where you came from. You can ask somebody to narrate, but to make it more personal, better you do it yourself. We have nothing to hide, right? hehe

Yung mga video na parang prerecorded kung wala ka dun during the awarding at ikaw ang makakatanggap ng award. Hehe.

3. And lastly, submit a name of your representative to join or who will come in the UP Diliman Convention Center that will receive sa stage ng ala-Oscar's Trophy-Plaque award if you land in the Top 10 or you will win a citation.

Download the sponsorship package above and please send it to your connections, and kakilala in the business world or organizations that are supportive of OFW causes like us.

We want the event to be special. It should be big and great. We are honoring the blogging heroes of our time.

Dear Friends and Fellow Bloggers

I hope that you can help inform our kababayans about the disaster Ondoy wrought to our country.

We have community severely affected in Kasiglahan Village in Montalban Rizal and other urban poor communities we work with living along the banks of esteros and rivers. They are without dry clothes and food. The community at Kasiglahan that was hit badly up until last nite we do not have words from them and even government relief has not reached them because of the bad road. Most of the people in that area are without food and clean water.

I hope that through our blogs effort we can help our kababayan.

Below is a list of places to donate:

But if we can monitor or centralize the donation through PEBA and KABLOGS account the better and we can have it course through as PEBA and KABLOGS donation to a particular group and organization.

Are We Ready?

Have you read your PEBA entry? Well, if not, then the judges will, and hey it's not just your blog entry, they will browse your blogsite as well, and they will be a visitor in your blog in a few days, several days or even a month!

The Judging period will start on November 01, 2009 until the 2nd week of December.

Do we need some lay-out or theme refurbishing or to repaint the color of our walls and sidebars?

Hmmn, it is all up to you.

We got our criteria's here, well, mostly.

There is a team working on the judging matrix, and it will be as transparent as ever. We have come up with a very simple matrix last year.

This year, a 4-man/woman team is working on the matrix, and believe it or not, 3 of them don't know that what they are doing is for the judging. We will deal with utmost confidentiality, and fair and transparent judging.

75 % of the judging will be done by the judges.

15% from the visibility/social metrics

10% from the poll/votes garnered.

We are still looking for sponsors, volunteers and donors. Please help us find sponsors. Thank you!
