I’ve been blogging for quite sometime now and have been to some organized bloggers group event. It’s a great opportunity to meet blogger friends and meet new ones. Last December 13th, I braved the traffic and the rain just to get to the Filipino Bloggers Network Christmas Party 2014 at the Aluform facilities at Jade Garden, San Juan City. FBN is one of the most active bloggers group in the country, and I’m glad I pushed to attend the event.
The Christmas Party was filled with fun games, great food and more importantly, sharing of stories of the fellow online writers. Too bad I missed a lot of the activities. I got to the venue at around 4pm, two hours late. The Filipino Bloggers Network has almost 1400 blogger members at the moment and continue to expand as it provides a venue for bloggers in the Philippines to interact with other members from different part of the Philippines. The group is led group administrators Divine RC and Richard Mamuyac, who moderates the discussions and posting opportunities from different brands.
I expected it to be just a simple get-together. But it ended up way beyond what I expected. There were raffle prizes and lots of delicious foods and tokens. This year’s celebration was supported by the following generous sponsors:
Aluform PreFab Construction and Consultancy – The makers of office buildings and technoparks, the company also supplies the materials for the homes but would-be owners can engage their own contractors if preferred.
