According to the good fellows at the Philippine Blog Awards, I must be doing something right.
Blessing upon blessings, the guys at the Philippine Blog Awards have decided that Lessons Of A Dad is this year’s best Lifestyle blog for Mindanao! Woot, woot!!
I was floored when I found out I was one of the finalists for the award, and I’m floored even more now that I was picked. You know, all I wanted was to bless and challenge readers, especially the dads of the world, to become better parents. (Ok, ok, and make a little cha-ching with the Adsense and Amazon Associates to boot).
But to be able to actually be a finalist—and win—in a Philippine Blog Awards category for Mindanao? That was totally, totally unexpected.
Especially this early in the ball game.
Truth be told, I just stated 5 months ago and I still feel like a lost noob half the time. Well, content…yeah, I can do, and I’m quite proud of, my content when it comes to parenting and ministry, etc. But all that stuff that comes with blogging, like driving in traffic, and SEO, and putting my name in directories, and Alexa/Digg/Stumbleupon/Twitter/whatnot, and putting up all these ads and bloggity, bloggity, blah blah…and I’m like “WWHHHHAAATTTT???” A lost noob? Yup.
So, I guess some people think this is a good thing I’m doing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope and pray that what I put here entertains, blesses, and challenges you. Keep reading. Subscribe if you haven’t yet (and add me on Facebook and Twitter, too). There’s more where that came from.
