It’s official, I’m an award-winning blogger. Never in my wildest dreams did my blogging skills would amount to something so big in such a short amount of time. I’m just so excited. What did I win? Well…

In addition to trying to rally the most votes as part of my assignment in the Ultimate Thailand Explorers [2] Competition, the five finalist teams were also competing for several awards/ titles:

  • Best Promotional Blog
  • Best Amazing Thailand, Amazing Value Video
  • Best Sponsor Promotion

Announced on Friday, Brian and I were honored with “Best Sponsor Promotion”.

The whole purpose of the competition was to promote travel to Thailand. My whole focus throughout the competition was to create engaging content that promoted each location we visited in Pattaya. Being recognized for this hard work is perhaps my proudest accomplishment.

If you visit the blog here [3], you’ll see a consistent focus on telling the story of each attraction, hotel and restaurant we visited through videos, photos and words. At the end of each post, we included a “Know Before You Go” section with a high-level synopsis and ways to connect with each location through social media. In addition to posting our blog on the official site, we shared links on twitter, facebook groups and fan pages and with prominent travel bloggers. Since December 16th, when page hits were tracked on the blog, we amassed over 2,700 page views. That’s incredibly high for less than a month of writing.

In addition to the title, we received a 2 night’s stay in Phuket – a resort city in the south of Thailand. We’re going to try to combine that stay with our 2010 International Adventure. Where will that be? You’ll have to check back later this week to find out. But here’s a hint…it’s somewhere in the Pacific Region.

Here’s hoping that 2010 will bring even more exciting news…
