Saan Pow Punta? has been named as the Best Travel & Leisure Blog by Philippine Bloggers Awards last November 21, 2016. The Philippine Bloggers Awards, organized by Lagawan.org, aims to recognize Filipino bloggers that contributes to bringing positive change.
Blogs were initially registered through nominations. I was really surprised and happy when I received an e-mail detailing about the nomination. From hundred registered blogs, 35 were chosen as finalists. A technical evaluator evaluated these finalists according to the pre-announced criteria. The criteria for selection are rating & votes (25 pts), uniqueness of content (25 pts), design and site navigation (25 pts), site compatability (10 pts), site rank (15 pts) and an article for “change” (50 pts). The “article for change” is a blog entry that describes how the blog can contribute to the welfare of the country, according to its niche.

“Saan Pow Punta?” is a blog / journal about the author’s travel & outdoor adventures around the Philippines, and sometimes abroad. Destinations are mostly about natural and outdoor-themed locations. The Philippines, being an archipelago of composed of relatively small islands, offers diverse sets of adventures. You can pick whichever suits your taste or take the chance to experience all of it. This blog mostly helps in the promotion of under-appreciated ecotourism potentials of many provinces. Our goal is to encourage readers to see these places for themselves and to know how wonderful the experience is.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have supported this blog during its first year of conception. Keep traveling!
