First Nomination for World Bloggers & Social Media Awards 2012.

The World Bloggers & Social Media Awards 2012

Just typing this took me more than 5 minutes (such a long name). The World Bloggers & Social Media Awards 2012 will be held at the PWTC on the 16th February and my personal blog has been nominated!

To be honest, I’ve never heard of it before until recently when I got an email saying I was nominated for the ‘Upcoming Blogger of the Year‘ Category. I was ecstatic and jumping in my shoes at the thought of being nominated but for whatever reason?

There were many categories in the list and as much as I wanted to be part of the Best Travel Blog, I wasn’t nominated in that but still it was okay. Being acknowledged as the upcoming blogger does mean a lot to me and it makes me more gung-ho or motivated to continue writing and becoming better at this.

World Bloggers and Social Media Awards 2012 is  one of the highlights in the Malaysia Social Media Week 2012.

Other Travel Bloggers on the list. 

I wasn’t the only one I know that was nominated in the awards. Here’s a list of friends or people I’ve met who is in the running as well:
