Contest Update

My internet service was off for two days, then I got busy with night-shift work for another two days, so I was basically unable to check what was happening to the contest during these last few days. The last time I was online, I wasn’t sure about continuing this birthday pakulo because there wasn’t much activity going on. There were no participants during the first 2 days after it was launched.

I was surprised when I got back online today. The comments were flooding 🙂 I basically spent hours reading comment posts and checking out links, but I really enjoyed it. I have started tallying points this evening and I didn’t realize that it is going to be a tedious process!

Allow me to update you with who is leading the pack. The top 3 participants with the most number of points up to this writing time are:

1.  Jared’s Mum (Bulacan)

2.  Shengkay (Hongkong)

3.  ImRiz1  (Manila)

Oooops they are not winners yet, okay? There are still 3 weeks before the contest ends so you still have a chance to catch up. Keep earning those points!


Just to clear something about the rules… the “LIKE” button I am pertaining to is NOT the FB “like” button that you find near the “tweet” button. I am talking about the “LIKE” button with a “yellow star” sign on it. That is found at the end of the posts, just before reading the comments. And this applies to WORDPRESS USERS only, because you need to be logged in to WordPress before you can click it. If your account is not in WordPress, then forget about it. The clicks on the FB “like” button do not get points. Sorry for the confusion.

      You’re doing a great job, VIX! Just maintain the position and you might be the winner! But remember… everyone wants to win so don’t be so relaxed! Hehe! Good luck!

      Please don’t forget to check your subscription, as it is still not registering on my list. Maybe you need to “verify/confirm” it in your email.

      Oh thanks for visiting my son’s blog!

      Thanks for joining Kayce! you must be a very busy blogger! One site is difficult to maintain, what more if you have 10 blogs?! Amazing! I have visited 5 of your blogs so far…
      Good luck!

    Toink! I miss understood. I thought, there’s a point when you “Like” the post. Anyway, I also have tried to Like the Yellow Star button but I always got error when I Iog in to my wp account. Dunno why…

    BTW. I like the photo above..hehe it seems like you are having hard time to tally all the points. Congrats for the successful birthday giveaway contest.

      Oh yeah, sorry about the confusion on the ‘like’ button. Many asked about that too.

      The tallying part of this contest is really tough! I had to do my tallying and points-counting after I get home from work. But I am enjoying it 🙂

    hi nelson! yes indeed I am quite a busy blogger hehehe…. but I enjoy being a blogger and I love it 🙂

      Hi KAYCE! Nice to know you are enjoying it! I hope you are having fun with the contest too. To tell you in advance, you are actually in the lead as of the latest tallying. At the moment, you have the most number of points. But don’t rejoice yet coz the second place isn’t far behind. I’m posting my second contest update tomorrow and if the rankings don’t move within the next hours, your name will be at number one. But remember also that we still have 15 days to go. A lot of bloggers will surely be challenged. Good luck!

    I am quite excited about this, although it seems difficult, there’s no harm in trying right? I just wish I could spare a lot more time for this, because I am reviewing for the NLE right now, and this is just my break time.

    It’s a lot of fun joining though! I left a question for you in your birthday post, I hope you don’t mind!

      Ay churi po… Kasi yun yung sinabi ng WP sa subscription. Sabi ko na nga ba mali yun hehehe. The last time I was in Bacolod was in 2008, to give a 2-day talk to some nursing students.

      Marami naghahangad manalo kaya you need to collect points again!
