And now, ladies and gentlemen, a serious note.
Last year, Technoodling won for Tech Junkie of the Year at the 2012 Globe Tatt Awards. It was a heady moment for us, and we have nothing but thanks to all our readers, fans, supporters and voters for making it happen.
Well now the 2013 Globe Tatt Awards are in full swing and, as you know, we were nominated once again for Best Tech Blog or Podcast. Once again, it had the makings of yet another heady moment for us, and we were gearing up to rally the troops and ask for your support to make us win and…
…and then we got hold of ourselves and thought, “What for?”
We really think that Technoodling has already proven itself to be a killer tech site with (they say) great content and (we say) great people.
So here’s the deal.
We think it’s time to pass the torch on so that other great Filipino tech sites also get to bask in the glory and the appreciation. We want the 2013 Globe Tatt Awards to be a celebration of the local tech community. We had our time in the spotlight last year, and we are extremely grateful for that opportunity. But this year, the award should go to someone else. Because we think that we’ll all end up winners that way.
(Besides, presumptuous as it sounds, if we won twice in a row then it will just up the pressure for us to win again next year. Oh, the stress! )
So ladies and gentlemen, we stand here before you, humbled and honored, but now asking you to vote for other deserving nominees for Best Tech Blog or Podcast for the 2013 Globe Tatt Awards. Choose wisely and vote for the site that has the best quality in terms of content and substance. We have our pet favorite, but we’ll let you choose who you want.
On the other hand, we would like to ask for your help to push a good friend of ours in a different category, and this is pepper.ph. Pepper is in the running for both the Blogger Phenom and the Food Blog categories of this year’s Tatt Awards. We love pepper.ph for its great content, great photos, and great design sensibilities.
We would therefore appreciate it if you check out pepper.ph and, if you like it, then please do use your energies to vote for it, whether for phenom or for food blog.
And with that, we thank all of you, our dear readers, and those of you who voted for us for this year’s Tatt Awards. Don’t vote for Technoodling. Please. But do vote wisely, and do check out pepper.ph!
