How to Advertise in Our Awesome Planet?

Dear Advertising Partner of OAP,

 Thank you for your interest in advertising in Our Awesome Planet!

First, let me share with you how OAP started.

I started Our Awesome Planet when my first son was born last January 2005.  OAP is a personal blog and one of the country’s top blogs in the Food and Travel niche in the Philippines.

It is a documentary of Aidan and Joshua’s childhood. Have you ever wondered what happened during your childhood? OAP is a love letter to our sons and one of the legacy that we can leave our kids.

Also, it is travelogue of our family’s adventures. We love trying out new things and new experiences. I’ve been to most of the restaurants, beaches, and hotels in the Philippines.

Our Awesome Planet loves to work with Advertising Partners who shares a common interest and passion specially in promoting the best of the Philippines. 

Our Awesome Planet Ethical Policy

OAP provides comprehensive and objective restaurant, hotel and resort reviews in the Philippines. We pay for all our meals and lodging expenses. We remove all conflicts of interest or disclose them if unavoidable. This includes getting freebies, ex-deals, attending press previews, or reviewing places connected with our family members. Fortunately, we don’t have a lot of family members who are in the restaurant and hotel industry in the Philippines. 

Personally, I do my own pro-bono campaigns to promote and advertise worthy causes, musical plays, operas, indie and animated films to uplift the arts and culture industry of the Philippines.

    2. Anton, i love the fact that you are not just one of those paid to write well publicists. We have one too many of those kinds of food writers that just leave us disappointed when we try their recommendations. I hope you keep it that way. That’s really one of the best things about your blog. That you’re independent and not obliged to write well about anybody.

    3. Thanks for letting me know 🙂 I’m trying my best to be independent and
      looking for more ways to be more objective…. Salamat for the
