Best Travel Blog 2012 Vote Malaysia Asia

Best Travel Blog 2012, Vote for Malaysia Asia at the Bloggers and Social Media Awards in Kuala Lumpur, a much talked about social media event that is happening in February. I got around knowing this via my twitter feed on the 15th Jan as a friend had voted and submitted Malaysia Asia for the category of Best Travel Blog. I totally did not expect this but am very grateful that there are some people out there who appreciate my work over the years and I cannot thank you enough.

Malaysia Asia travel blog

By casting your votes, you can help Malaysia Asia to win Best Travel Blog 2012 at the Bloggers and Social Media Awards which is going to be held on the 16th February at Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As there are many travel blogs around Malaysia, the competition is pretty interesting as it would be a game of votes. The more friends you have, the higher your votes would be therefore, I am writing this article to get your support in voting for Malaysia Asia to win this award. To vote, you simply need to do a quick register for the site and it's all done.

Over the years, there have been numerous awards in Malaysia like the Nuffnang Blog Awards and a few others. As these awards are based on public votes, many have been on a drive to get as much votes as they can to be nominated and I never did take part in those awards due to the fact that it was purely vote driven and not based on quality or traffic. Example; you could have a very basic blog with 1000 good online friends and that alone could help you drive up your votes to be in the finals. This time around, I thought I would like to try my luck and see where I fair in this as I have been writing for Malaysia Asia over the last 4 years on my own without taking note of these awards. 

 Malaysia Asia - Best Online Media 2011/2012

To my surprise, I won my first and only award by Sabah Tourism where Malaysia Asia won Best Online Media at the Sabah Tourism Awards which is held every two years. After all, I have been contributing a number of articles on Sabah Borneo and also many other places around Southeast Asia. Apart from that, I have been running online campaigns and contest for various tourism related businesses. One of my current Social Media Online Contest is with AirAsia X to Win 4 x All Expense Paid 6 Day Trip to Japan. This amazing drive was to create awareness and also give the netizens and readers of MA a chance to visit one of the most expensive countries in the world, all expense paid too. The contest ends on the 5th of Feb so if you are up for it, please feel free to join.

Malaysia Asia has also been running travel related contest since 2010 and this only gets better over time. The last three online travel contest have been successful with over thousands of entries received with a number of happy winners. Prizes included trips to the Philippines, Langkawi, Sabah and Phuket. While traveling is the main core of my site, it is only fair that I try to give back as much as I can to my readers via Social Media on my Facebook Page or Twitter feed while I also make it a point to run some exciting travel contest online for everyone to participate. Therefore I hope that this time around, you - the reader, can help me vote for the travel award so that Malaysia Asia can hopefully win Best Travel Blog for 2012.
