To be awarded for all our efforts to make our site stand out. loud and proud, is the best recognition that is very much appreciated by the WazzupPilipinas.com team. We have been receiving awards from different award-giving bodies since we founded WazzupPilipinas.com in 2013 and received our very first recognition as one of the Top Emerging Influential Blog Site by DigitalFilipino.com. It was soon followed by an overwhelming series of awards every year coming from different award-giving bodies.
These awards have always been our inspiration to continue our advocacy in providing relevant news and information despite some shortcomings and obstacles, and exaggerated issues fabricated against us. We all know that we wouldn't be very controversial, and highly-talked about, if we were not really making a big difference. The continued patronage of many brands and organizations who partner with us for the promotion of their events, products and services only shows that we continue to be among the top blog sites in the Philippines.
WazzupPilipinas.com was conceptualized entirely to promote the Philippines as the most preferred destination. This is why we targeted to partner initially with the government agency we know as the Department of Tourism (DOT). We further reached out to other government agencies like the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), Department of Health (DOH), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and many more, even reaching out to the Office of the President in Malacanan Palace.
The tagline of being the "Pambansang Blog ng Pilipinas" was mainly used because of that objective. We wanted to be the online media partner of not only our government but also of the many colleges and universities of the country, the many businesses and entrepreneurships belonging to the big corporations and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to the startups and advocacy programs of our countrymen and the many organizations that support everything about the Philippines.
Since we believe that the only reason why there's a lot of complaints and rumors spreading all over was because of lack of communication and information. The people needed to be informed of the many programs and activities of our government agencies. Contrary to the news that most of our government people are corrupt, it is unfair to generalize them since only a few are really misguided. Corruption is sadly happening in all fields and sectors of the country and not only in the government. We may want to consider even our petty little actions more than just naughty and mischievous. The little things we do that violate morals and etiquettes already contribute to the negative elements in our society. It is high time we look at ourselves in the mirror and reflect on the things we have done and to ask ourselves if we have been a law-abiding citizens, and to seek more of what we can do for our country.
The colleges and universities needed media partners to share their events and announcements. This is why WazzupPilipinas.com offer our services for free to help our youth in fulfilling their school requeirements and to assist them in their other activities. The youth has always been next in line to be our future leaders. We should support them even during their studies, and not only when they are already successful and influential.
The bright-minded entrepreneurs and businessmen needed support for their products and services, especially the new and emerging businesses. Helping them out will eventually ripple into a better economy for our country. The more successful Filipino achievers would mean a better Philippines.
Our support for people and organizations that aim to make the Philippines stand out as a great country would forever be there. Just reach out to us and we will collaborate with you.
