It was only recently last September 2013 that Wazzup Pilipinas was recognized as one of the Top Ten Emerging Influential Blogs of 2013 by the DigitalFilipino.com, an online organization headed by Ms. Janette Toral, now known as the Mother of E-Commerce. The recognition, on its 7th run, was an annual writing project that seek to identify new and emerging blogs who are making an impact to its readers last 2013. The blogs chosen were those that were gradually gaining a considerable amount of readership, following, influence and fascinating the reader in various ways. The bloggers behind them established the blog for various reasons such as expression of thoughts, sharing of knowledge and insight, building a movement, events reporting or coverage, and some for profit.
It is with great happiness that we were given another recognition as Most Outstanding Filipino Community Blog Site for our efforts to tell stories about everything that is happening around the Philippines and of interest to all Filipinos within and outside the country. Our goal is to be the most preferred online media partner of many events, brands, and companies in the country.
The award for Most Outstanding Filipino Community Blog Site for 2013 is a great way to start the 2014 year of the wooden horse for Wazzup Pilipinas. We hope to win more soon!
