Malaysia Asia has been nominated for Social Media Tourism Blog of the Year 2013 for the upcoming MITBCA 2013 or Malaysia International Tourism Bloggers Conference and Awards 2013. As it is a pleasant surprise for me, I was quite unsure if I would get any votes this time around. As last year, the winners were determined by the number of votes to jump into the top three finalist and for me, voting shows only quantity and not quality. You know the math.
Anyway, as I am already nominated for the Social Media Tourism Blog of the Year, I would appreciate if you, my friends or fans for the last four years would help me cast a vote in the category mentioned above. Again, I am not forcing you but if you think I deserve a vote for the years of work I have put in promoting my country, I would very much appreciate it. This is also a register, log-in and vote concept. So here is what you have to do;

Malaysia Asia nominated in the tourism social media blog of the year 2013
If you should know, when it comes to voting games, I am absolutely against it as it is a very Asian thing which is easy for the organisers to maintain. If it were me, I would rather have a minimal vote and maximum judging on content, design and creativity. This would be a much more proper method to qualify the right entries and winners. If you look at many of the awards and contest around Malaysia, many of them still like to use the 'Most Votes' wins which is really sad. I hope this old mindset changes soon and finally, I would like to thank anyone who has voted for Malaysia Asia nominated for Social Media Tourism Blog of the Year.
