“I’m a blogger. Hear me roar!”
Judging by the response of the crowd at the Singapore Blog Awards 2013 held at Shanghai Dolly, it was clear that blogging was anything but dying/dead!
Donning “superhero” outfits and “larger than life” persona, bloggers of all stripes, shapes and styles congregated at the Singapore Flyer’s Food Trail yesterday afternoon for some hot, sweaty fun at the 5th Singapore Blog Awards. Organised every year by the tireless team from Omy.sg, the ceremony has grown from year to year, attracting social media mavens and sponsors across an ever growing list of categories.
Like in previous years, I was privileged to be a judge helping to seive out the best from amongst the good. It ain’t easy, I assure you! Competition is stiff and I am very heartened by the sheer effort and energy put in by the various contesting bloggers. In any case, congrats to all participants of the awards – you guys are all winners in your own ways!
Singapore Blog Awards 2011 has upped the ante yet again. As a long-time supporter of the awards (we hosted it at Asian Civilisations Museum in 2008, and I helped judge last year’s event), I can safely say that this year’s competition organised by Omy.sg has set new milestones in many areas – categories, sponsors, prizes, event attendees, and of course the fun factor.
