I arrived at SMX Convention Center for the 1st Digital Influencers Marketing Summit, I told myself, : “If I win, good for me. If not, better luck next time.”

When Ms. J (the energetic Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino) asked us who are the participants for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs Writing Project, she approached us and I told her I was among who joined the said writing gig,

She said: “You’re one of the winners! May badge ka na.”

I was stunned when she told me that I was chosen to be the one of the winners of Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2012. I never expected it would happen to me. I never imagined that my blog was chosen for this fabulous writing project.
