These days I rarely attend blog events because I’m so out of the loop from it now compared to before. Granted that I do not update my blog that much anymore, simply because I’m almost always “working” and there aren’t much interesting stuff to share on my blog unlike before. It was all about school before, then lately it’s about the events I go to.. which isn’t consistent because I’m picky (also, can’t fund all the events I wanna go to, hehe).
Heard about the Blogapalooza event from a blogger friend from few weeks back (or was it a month ago) who couldn’t made it because she’s based outside the Philippines as of the moment. Looked over it and it seem possible for me to go, so why not? I signed up and then was granted the privilege to go to it (yay!).
Fast forward to the day itself…. my buddy and I braved our way to SM Aura. This would be our first visit to this new mall, and probably my 5th visit to BGC as a whole. I don’t really go to The Fort that much, it isn’t that accessible to me as a commuter. Yes I commute.
Anyway! Here’s what went down in Blogapalooza 2013.
We arrived late. I feel like I should emphasize this because being late made us miss a lot of stuff. That includes not having available seats in the area anymore where the mini-talks and program proper was held. We spent most of the time roaming around the booths, trying out their services and having our ID signed/stamped after.
Despite that, it was still a fun event full of activities. Kudos to everyone who took part in it and congrats to the organizers and sponsors for a successful event. Also, one thing to be proud of is that this event alone was able to raise PhP 80,000+ donations for the victims of typhoon Haiyan.
My only regret is that we wish we came by earlier so we did not miss on the important booths! Oh the fun activities we could have participated in.
