VivoMigsGee, Newbie Vying for the Top Photoblogger Crown

BCBA Night “Winter” is Coming

For the night is dark and full of terror…!

It’s not that I couldn’t get enough of Halloween or the day of honoring the dead. I’m talking about the upcoming spooktacular event that is “Winter”. A recently concluded nomination week had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer-like judging phase! Yep, winter is coming! With the 9th Best Cebu Blog Awards (BCBA) night happening this November 27, 2016 in the Crown Regency Hotel and Towers, the cold winds are rising, sending shivers down my spine.


Who wouldn’t? I mean, Top Cebu Bloggers will be acknowledged in their respective niches and I must say I have never experienced this before. This #BCBA2016 Recognition Night is giving me chills, a tingle of thrill glimmering brightly within the darkness of my fear as a first-timer. A tinge of curiosity perhaps.

Playing a friendly competition for ruling of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms of Cebu, I’m exhilarated to witness who’s gonna sit atop in each Blog Niche Throne. In the spirit of camaraderie, honor and pride, Best Cebu Blogs Awards (BCBA) has been the arena of Cebu-based Bloggers annually where troops of bloggers are given the opportunity to socialize with fellow bloggers, and benchmark their skills with Cebu’s finest. This healthy game will bring out the best in you, either you WIN a friend, or DIE, be reborn and improve anew!

Among the seven (7) regal honors, Photo Niche is one of the coveted crown for shutterbugs! Two special awards (i.e., Best Creative Writing In A Blog and Uber Influential Award) shall also be given to the best online writers. With the much-awaited “Winter” just around the corner, may the Lord cast his light upon all the contenders!

Hall of Snappers (Finalists)


After a crucial assessment by the High Ranks of BCBA, only four contenders made it to the cut. And here are the top 4 finalists vying for this year’s Ultimate Photoblogger’s crown, to wit:

1.) Count Ocram

Marco is a Cebu blogger who writes about style, fashion and travel. He’s the man behind, and His personal IG account @countocram has made it on Instagram’s Suggested Users list twice. With those impressive resume to wear the crown (e.g.,multiple awards, significant experience on the social media battlefield), I say he’s the man to beat!

2.) Blissful Snapshots was once a finalist on the same blog niche. With this year being one of the contenders again, she is more determined to take back the throne and finally rule. With her fiery passion for photography, she’s been meaning to wake her dragons up and capture her adventures and memories through blissful snaps. She honored, “Through my eyes as the lens and the world as my backdrop, I capture adventures and memories as a way to add value to this beautiful world we live in.”

3.) The JDGalz

This knight wears his honor like a suit of armor. He’s duty-bound to charm his opponents with his pro photography skills. He doesn’t shy away from making tough calls in welcoming everyone to his world of delectable food finds at His gallery of gastronomic delight will surely lure you in appreciating food photography and beyond. Be captivated with those sweet words “I think it’s better if I just show you.”

4.) VivoMigsGee

I’m the wildling behind Beyond the milestones in my 3 months of blogging, knowing that someone appreciates your work is already a victory for me. I may be a newbie in the field of blogosphere but will not go down without a fight! With continuous improvement in mind, I blog not to impress people.
