Finally, a weekร‚ย  after the Top 6 Christmas Wishlist entry came out, we will now know who will be NomNom Club’s 2009 Best Christmas Wishlist Bl0g.

From among the 25 entries last December 2009, My Shrubbish Nomnomlicious Wishlist wins as NomNom Club’s 2009 Best Christmas Wishlist Blog!

Congratulations to John Paul Vergoni of Kompyuter Sayantist for his entry “My Shrubbish Nomnomlicious Wishlist“.

First (1st) Runner-up is ‘”My Christmas 2009 Wishlist” by Edelweiza Mabalay fromร‚ย  “The Life of a Breadwinner.”

Second (2nd) Runner up is “My Grownup Christmas List” by Ria Tirazona from”Daydream Believer“.

Top 6 Christmas Wishlist Contest Entries

A total of twenty-five entries were submitted for the Starbucks USB contest where a blogger should create a Christmas Wishlist based on the following mechanics.

It was great how the participants shared their personal wants and desires and how some seriously made selfless wishes. It was awesome to discover how creative some of the entries were. There were also unconventional wishes which made me create a list of the Top 6 ‘Kakaibang‘ wish from among the entries. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. For a different set of wishlists as a whole – http://www.polyvore.com/christmas_wishlist/set?id=14354899

I didn’t know there’s such a case for bras. We’ll, I think because I’m a guy. ๐Ÿ™‚ The ‘business opportunities’ came in as a surprise since it was an uncommon one and very serious at that.ร‚ย  While the mom who wishes for a birthday party for her son’s first birthday was quite touching. The last two were eccentric as a collection.

There were also heartwarming messages for NomNom like the one from FunHuntress.blogspot.com that says (http://funhuntress.blogspot.com/2009/12/my-grownup-christmas-list.html)

I’m really happy that bloggers come up with these kinds of contests that can change their readers’ lives.

…or somehow affect it at the very least, even if not ‘change.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

There was also an entry where she wished to be linked from NomNomClub.com. She is StalwartsKryptonite. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, who won the Starbucks USB flash drive?

There were a number of very good entries so I decided to select the Top 6 first and invite a co-judge who is a professional writer to help me in expertly selecting the grand winner. We’ll add our scores and average them.

Allow me to announce the top winner taking home the Starbucks USB next Sunday January 17, 2010. I would also reveal my co-judge at the same post. And because of that, I would add more prizes. The 2nd and 3rd place winners will not go empty handed. They would win a Starbucks gift certificate each.
