Bariles is proud to announce that he is one of three judges who have been tasked to choose 2010’s “Best Cebu Blogs”.

The search for the “Best Cebu Blogs” is conducted by an independent award-giving body that actually started in 2008 with Mark Monta, a Cebu-based blogger.  Its objective is to “recognize the existence and relevance of blogging in Cebu’s local online scene.

Furthermore, it also “aspires to augment Cebu bloggers’ influence in the general cyber community world.”  This awarding body also “focuses on pooling the Top 10 Blogs with excellent and relevant content that promotes everything about Cebu to the world.”

For this year, 20 finalists have already been chosen from out of the many nominations received by the Best Cebu Blogs 2010 Team.

GenSan News Online Mag would like to recognize the efforts of Mark Monta and his team for being able to come up and sustain this yearly competition which encourages Cebuanos not only to blog but to blog well.  Cebu-based bloggers are some of the better English writers that we have but they also have good writers in their native Cebuano.

Bariles is indebted to Team Best Cebu Blogs 2010 for the distinction of helping them out with this annual task along with two other bloggers from Luzon (Azrael Deasis Coladilla) and the Visayas (Stanley Cabigas).  Bariles graduated from the University of the Philippines College in Cebu where he was a National State Scholar of the DepEd, and has since considered the island as his 2nd home (Cagayan de Oro being his 3rd).

Here then are the 20 Finalists of the “Best Cebu Blogs 2010”:
