Why Join the Singapore Blog Awards?

This year is the fifth year omy.sg is running the Singapore Blog Awards. If you tell me five years ago that an event like this can grow to the scale it is now, I would not have believe it either.

omy.sg would not have been able to pull this off year after year, without the strong and growing support of our sponsors and the blogging community.
