It is with utmost humility that I announce that Mindanaoan.com has just been declared as a “Top CDO Blog” in the recently concluded 2014 ICT Awards held at the Activity Center, Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro, Philippines.
The ICT Awards, organized by the CDO ICT Business Council, Cagayan de Oro’s main information and communications technology organization, recognizes websites, individuals and organizations involved in the city’s IT industry.
The citation reads: “The 2014 ICT Awards, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry, National Telecommunications and Communications, Department of Science and Technology – ICTO and the City Government of Cagayan de Oro, presents this Top CDO Blog Award to www.Mindanaoan.com for the creation and maintenance of an exceptional blog that is appealing, engaging and dedicated to promoting and showcasing the City of Cagayan de Oro. The proud Kagay-anon brand continues to grow stronger and farther in reach through your work.”
I was told that nearly 20 blogs were nominated. These were then filtered and the list was shortened to just 7. The top 5, which were then declared as the top CDO blog awardees for this year, were chosen because of the quality of content, traffic, social shares and…this is what really means a lot to me…social relevance 🙂
This award is a testament that I must be doing something right 😉 I will continue to write with passion and will also continue to teach others how to use social media and the power of blogging to help make our communities better.
Thank you also to the sponsors and supporters of the ICT Awards. Recognizing our efforts as bloggers is truly inspiring.
Thank you also to my family, friends and fellow bloggers. You all inspire me everyday. And last but definitely not the least, thank you very much to all of the readers of Mindanaoan.com! You all keep me going and it is truly an honor to serve you all.
Thank you very much! Ad Majorem dei Gloriam!
