Oman: Web Awards a ‘Scam’

Omani blogger Blue-Chi describes the 2007 Omani Blog Web Awards as a scam. He further appeals to the Omani blogging community to uncover the ‘scam’ here.

    While I was searching for “Omani Blog Awards” via Google, I came across this blog reference with snap of your article and Mr. Blue-Chi’s comment, whom I knew over 10 years. I was shocked of the statement and I decided not to be judgmental and read the article and go through the references, it turned out to be about “Omani Web Awards” and not “Omani Blog Awards”

    I am clearing the name of the Omani blogger Blue-Chi, for not referring Omani Blog Awards as a scam, which was a typo mistake by the writer. And the Omani Blog Award wasn’t a scam, it was one-time unofficial blog award organized by well known Omani bloggers.

  • Sorry about that sb and my apologies for Blue Chi!
    Will amend the article immediately.
