Throughout time, history and culture has been shaped by writers. Their descriptions of their lives and social changes are passed out generation to generation.
Jose Rizal, the Filipino national hero, is a writer. He wrote to tell the world about the poverty and mistreatment that occurred during the Spanish regime. His legacy of writing to create change in the country has been passed on to today’s youth. One great example is the Bloggys 2015.
What is Bloggys 2015?
Bloggys 2015 is a blog awarding event that has gathered the best internet writers of the country. Last month, writers have been nominated by fans and friends to be qualified for the competition. They have been nominated in categories like Travel, Business, Religion, Fiction and Literature, etc. This October, these talented Bloggers are grabbing attention of internet users for votes. Anyone can vote for their bet on the best blog. They will be judged by category and popularity.
