The 2009 Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards!!!

Okay, here are the lists of winners.

But first, I would like to thank Former DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman, Congresswoman Risa Hontiveros Baraquel, Susan Ople and Carlo Ople, Janette Toral, Noemi Dado, Tonyo Cruz, Juana Change aka Mae Paner, and the families and representatives of the PEBA finalists. Lots of raffle winners, and lots of gifts and goodies after the event! Everybody's happy, I guess. Wish more sponsors next year so we can have more raffles and freebies.

The Pink Tarha Girl was there, dashing and goodlooking as she is, and ever kikay, Sundrenced. Also Phil and his parents was there, from Wits and Spirits as well as the lovely Shanghai based, Style Shanghai blogger, Maris.

And the 2009 Top 10 Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards

No. 1 in Blog Element, No. 1 in Blog Entry,
No. 1 in Blog Content,
and voted by the judges twice as No. 1,
and twice as No. 2 in the over-all rank

"Isla de Nebz blog stood out than the other blogs for me.
Although there were a lot of good blogs and a lot of good entries,
I enjoyed the way he presented the entry for PEBA -
not just because of the graphics he showed with his entry
but also because he had a unique entry per se.
We all know about an OFW's hardship, the sacrifices, etc.
And most of the entries just did that.
But Isla de Nebz entry was a different perspective
on a big aspect of an OFW's life - his income and where it goes.
I enjoyed that part (even without his original graphics)
His other entries were also fun to read - very light, very candid,
but at the same time, he was giving us the other side of an OFW's life.
He doesn't take himself seriously and I admire that." - PEBA judge

No. 3 in the Blog Entry and Blog Content, and voted twice as No.1 and twice as No. 2, twice as No. 4 by the judges in the over-all rank.

"Excellent blog and Informative in their own "kikay" way.
Because they were able to tell their story in a simple and sincere manner that is not boring but is actually compelling."
"Raised In the Republic, Raised in the Kingdom. Nice one!"
- PEBA Judges

Nominees Alexa Ranking (Aug 2009)

Alexa is a very powerful tool that we used to rank blog traffic.
So far, Alexa is one of the most accurate and yet free available online tools to find out how well your blog ranks up against the millions of other blogs on the Web.
Please bear in mind that the lower the Alexa Ranking Number, the more visitors a blog has.
According to ALEXA Ranking, the top 5 are
Google (Alexa Rank 1)
Yahoo (Alexa Rank 2)
Facebook (Alexa Rank 3)
Youtube (Alexa Rank 4)
Windows Live (Alexa Rank 5)
These rankings are generally consistent with the amount of traffic they have.
Now here's the ALEXA Ranking of the current PEBA nominees as one of the bases for the criteria
