entry arrow2:35 PM | The Butterfly Awards

Zarah Gagatiga of School Librarian in Action sent me a blog award known as the Butterfly Award. Now here are, in random order, 25 cool Filipino blogs I know and visit a lot. (The original number was ten, but I'm feeling generous today.)

01. Frank Cimatu's Pine for Pine
02. Charles Tan's The Bibliophile Stalker
03. Kenneth Yu's Philippine Genre Stories
04. Veronica Montes's Nesting Ground
05. Adam David's An Exercise in Youthful Blasphemy
06. _____'s MisterHubs
07. Gibbs Cadiz's Airs in G
08. Jessica Zafra's Jessica Rules the Universe
09. Wanggo Gallaga's Reverb
10. Jun Lana's Kuwan
11. Marguerite de Leon's The Girl in the Dirty Shirt
12. Gerry Alanguilan's Komikero
13. Andrew Drilon's Komikid
14. Francis Cruz's Lessons From the School of Inattention
15. Rain Baguio's The Red Horse Gallops
16. Bryan Gorrell's Pure Advocacy (formerly the infamous The Not-so-Talented Delfin 'DJ' Montano blog)
17. Russ Ligtas's ReadRuss
18. _____'s The Bakla Review
19. Ari Ngaseo's Pu-pu Platter
20. John Bengan's Your Headphones
21. Teng Mangansakan III's Funktional Schizophrenic
22. Boy du Jour's Confessions of a Good, Dirty Boy
23. Cecile Van Straten's Chuvaness
24. Wilfredo Pascual's Secret Gospels, Sacred Sites
25. Marne Kilates' All Our Nameable Days

Some personal criteria came into play, and like Zarah, I kinda chose blogs because of things such as posting activity vs. dormancy; content; relevance; impact made in the blogosphere; and design and navigation. And, for the sake of spreading the good word for not-so-well-known blogs, I have not included some favorite blogging giants such as Notes From the Peanut Gallery, Manila Gay Guy, Manuel L. Quezon III, and {caffeine_sparks}.

This is a meme award and the rules for passing it on are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

But because I'm a meme killer, the bloggers noted here really don't have to do anything. But spread the blog love, if you want.
