I got an unexpected response for my last most critic post about 1st Annual Blog Awards from the readers . Some of them were extraordinary supportive that I couldn’t stop being senti=| I am greatful to those commentators who have shared their opinions against that post. Just wanted to share some of the comments that were really amazing and gave inspiration none of its kind:
- I just wanted you to know that there people like me who really appreciate for bringing this up and voicing your opinion
- good journalism shows us all the sides of an issue.
- @jingoists Great post.
- Its really very brave of you
- I was feeling the same thing for a long time.
- Courage to speak truth is indeed a big thing, do not ever lose it.
- I didn’t dare say anything because most of the people are my friends and yet you did
- Its the same people everytime and they only promote their own people- very few can point out this as its one powerful group
I kept them anonymous because, most of the comments belong to the people who are friends of those who I have strongly criticized in my post earlier. So Stand up Bloggers!! Its time to spread the truth regardless if its bitter for our dearest friends. We have bigger responsibilities then just keeping our friends happy. As described by Awab Alvi in the latest episode of laidbackshow episode 20 that CIO people are sweet by nature and they want to keep their friends happy.
ps: this is just a request that we shoudn’t start criticizing to that extent that we forget to appreciate things happening around us. All the best!

Congratulations to CIO Pakistan, Google Pakistan for arranging the 1st Annual Pakistan Blog Awards and then feeling bad for the winners for getting it without doing any thing!
It started well, when bloggers started appealing some attention of the world, to showcase their blogs. Then CIO Pakistan and Google Pakistan took an initiative of Blog Awards. Nominations were done by themselves or by their reading fans (who in the world have nothing else to do except this)
Lets go through critics on some of the winners who were not at all deserving people for such awards:
- Best Celebrity Blog | Naveen Naqvi | naveenaqvi.com
Is it because, she is the only person who interact with Alpha, Beta, and a few more bloggers??? was there any other celebrity nominated??? If not Why ? CIO people to answer this!
- Best Culture Blog | Yasir Niaz | yasirniaz.blogspot.com
6 posts in 5 months out of which only one was indirectly related to Pakistan… that was on Kashmir Day… lolz!! CIO Pakistan, did you even check before being so biased??? CIO people to answer this!!
- Best Fashion Blog | Irfan Ahson | bridalfashions.wordpress.com
This was ridiculous! This is a Photo-blog featured by a photographer and not a Fashion designer. Seems like CIO wanted to fit him in the list of blogs??? Why CIO Pakistan, you need to answer this
- Best Humor Blog | Tazeen | tazeen-tazeen.blogspot.com

- Best Online Community Blog | Yasir Nisar | www.flickr.com/groups/pakistaniphotographers
Where in the world Communities/Forums/Discussion Groups came under the category of BLOG??? CIO you have already awarded so much to your friends… Stop doing that!!
- Live Blogger | Fariha Akhtar
I would appreciate if CIO could shed some light on the term LIVE BLOGGER?? isn’t she awarded because she is the most active person who Retweets Alpha, Neena, Gamma. Is she awarded because she always say yes, yes, yes to what they say?? CIO you were so keen to award her that you didn’t even bother specifying her blog on the website!! CIO must answer this
- Tech hardware | Abdullah Saad | wccftech.com
CIO, frogod sake you already awarded so much in the category of the buzz word “TECH”, I must say CIO people are so generous to award their friends.

- Best Industry Support | Jehan Ara
Awww, How CIO can forget the bestest Member. How funny to see that CIO being organizer awarding its own Member… lol… Shame on You CIO!!
I didn’t comment on the ones that i found to be appropriate and where luckily the arrow of CIO got a bit accurate. CIO must be ashamed of what ever have they done.
All bloggers someway or the other condemn the acts of Governmental Bodies including President by claiming that incompitent people have been appointed just to be generous and by awarding ministries to their beloved friends. They have been raising their voice through their platform in order to bring awareness so that such activities could be avoided in future.
I feel sorry for all the bloggers to be associated with so much biased/unprofessional blog awards. They were completely biased .. Improfessional .. Generous enough to be award to their beloved friends .. Just like our government does that
This is Big Shame to CIO … you just lost your credibility!!
This is a request to all the bloggers. Self evaluate your self because a person never lie to himself. Stay away from people with biased mentality. Stop being favourite of any organization. Beleive in your self identity and not by associating with such organizations. Spread a good cause. Spread it independently with your best knowledge without having any biasness. We need to get things rectified for the sake of this country. Be honest to this world and to your self.
With such attributes together, we can bring alot of change to the best of part of this world… The Land of Pure, Pakistan!
