What can be considered a blog?

A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog) is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries or posts typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently, “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited.

Background of the Philippine Bloggers Awards

This prestigious awards aims to recognize Filipino bloggers around the world who had contributed ideas online on their respective fields. The Philippine Bloggers Awards is an online event wherein bloggers collaborate and compete to earn points. The highest-earning blog/blogger will be held as the best blogger of the year. This initiative started last 2016 by Lagawan.org. However, to avoid conflicts of interest, Crozland, Inc. took over the event to maintain the focus of Lagawan.org as a travel website only. Personal blogs from Lagawan.org has been also taken down to clean and to sanitize its platform. Contents of previous awards will gradually be transferred from Lagawan.org to Crozland, Inc. website by October 2018. In accordance with the existing Privacy and Security Laws, all information during the migration will be kept with utmost security. No information has been and will be ever disclose to any third party without your consent. The data migration however, will only include the original blog posts and shall not include any personal data of anyone.

The Process

Each blogger shall register his/her blog to the event. Only one blog shall be consider for each blogger. In case of multiple blogs, the blogger may chose only one among his blogs. In case of multiple ownership of a blog, the group shall only authorize one who shall register the blog in behalf of the group. Crozland, Inc. shall not be held liable to any conflicts that may arise pertaining to ownership. To ensure and validate each entry, Crozland, Inc. shall require each participant to enter a verification data on his/her blog to verify ownership. The organizers have the right to refuse and reject an entry if the verification failed. To determine page ranks and website popularity, Crozland, Inc shall also install a tracker on each participating blog. This will be used as a page ranker independent from any existing in the internet.

The voting shall also comprise the number of reactions the blog banner gets during the entire voting period. It shall comprise three factors such as: Facebook likes, Twitter Retweets, and website voting. The final votes will be counted at 11:59PM of the last day of voting.
