This year’s gathering, the best for me so far, was bigger and grander, as it was held at the City of Dreams Manila. Highly esteemed speakers and panelists graced the event. Most of them are well known veterans in blogging and the digital industry. Celebrities and social media influencers also shared some of the secrets to the popularity they’re enjoying today.
As the biggest B2B (business-to-blogger) event in the country, Blogapalooza invited brands from various industries to showcase their products and give away tokens.
One of my favorite parts was the chance to meet fellow bloggers from different places in the Philippines and to make new friends with other communities. This year, I saw new faces and get acquainted with them. I even met those whom I was only talking to over Viber or Messenger.
Of course, Norte Bloggers represented the Northern Philippines, and unlike last year, our group is now bigger. From nine members, 20 bloggers attended this year’s event.
We appreciate the effort that Blogapalooza exerts in supporting regional bloggers like us to get connected with brands. Big thanks to Ace Gapuz, the Blogamomma. She’s the best!
What made Bloagapalooza more exciting this year were the fun games courtesy of Archery attack. They let us try archery, assembling guns loaded with water-based pellets, and wrestling each other while wearing zorbs (bubble sport). I enjoyed the last game so much that my muscles were aching the next day.
The event happened only recently, but I’m already excited for the next Blogapalooza and for the one after that. Well, I’m really excited about what lies ahead not just for Blogapalooza as a company, but for the whole community.
Congratulations to our Blogamomma and to the whole blogafamily. Hope to see you all again next year.
