After a series of nominations in Davao Blog Awards since joining Davao Bloggers Society (DBS) in 2017, http://www.johndappercloser.com (JDC) bags its first recognition as 2021 Outstanding Davao Blog.
“It was like Leonardo Dicaprio’s journey to his first Oscars.” John Llamas, Chief Content Strategist of JDC described the experience. The accolade was presented by Maria Jose, DBS Trustee during the DBS Sparkly Night – Virtual Christmas Party 2021 via the organization’s official Google Meet account, December 11, 8PM.
“Before winning his first Oscar® for Best Actor in 2016 for his performance in “The Revenant”, Dicaprio received a series of nominations as Best Actor for The Aviator in 2005, for Blood Diamond in 2007, and for Wolf of Wall Street in 2014, which by the way is my favorite sales-related movie of him portraying a real-life Closer, Jordan Belfort,” Llamas explained. “These movies showed how masterful Dicaprio is in his craft. Most movie fans even suggest that these deserved him earlier Oscars wins. However, Dicaprio just kept on improving his acting prowess instead of allowing any accolade to validate his caliber as an actor. That is exactly the inspiration that I want to amplify out from our first award – Keep improving. Do not ever stop beefing up your talents just because someone told you that you are already great or that you are trying so hard. Do not ever stop beefing up your talents at all!” Llamas emphasized.
There were no niche categories and other special categories for this year’s Davao Blog Awards. Rather, the top blogs with excellent content that are aligned with the vision of the organization were given the “Outstanding Blog of 2021” Award.
Three more blogs were also declared as 2021 Outstanding Davao Blog. These are http://thepopblogph.com/ by NepC Ledesma, http://davaogeekhub.com/ by Josef Cagas, and https://www.youtube.com/user/JEXXHINGGO by Jexx Hinggo.

“Financial Calmness For Filipinos is the latest advocacy that I want to lobby using my platform. That means more finance blog posts are yet to be published from now on under our Investments and Insurances Blog Series. We have been trying out creating vlogs and reels as well. Those are content pieces that we are excited to produce for Style and for our transitioning lifestyle from corporate to business, the Bleisure Lifestyle. I intend to grow with my readers too as I unlock a new chapter in life! Thus, a Dad Cave section on Johndappercloser is coming up.” Llamas declared.
“We hope that you will be visiting http://www.johndappercloser.com more frequently this year. Turning our weblog into a metaverse is a part of our lofty yet doable game plan in the years to come” – Llamas manifested.
