I heard of this event from a friend sometime last week and thought of registering even though there’s no guarantee that I’ll be granted a slot. At the time, it was strictly implied that it is an invite-only event and somewhere along the way, the word “influential” is there.
Here’s the thing: I don’t think I am influential, and certainly my blog doesn’t even rank that high or known to most people. I just post photos of events I go to.. but I still tried. And I was surprised to find out upon viewing this list that I made the (first?) cut!
Looks like I’m going after all. I don’t know who else that I know will be going.. but I am SO looking forward to this because it’s been a long time since I attended any (what I would consider a) legit blog-related event. 😊 Last one was the Pinoy_Blogfest 3.0 in September 2012. Before that were the last WordCamps that were held in my alma mater, CSB. Heh.
What poked my interest in the first place is that the number of advertisers who will be there. I’m looking forward to see the products and services that will be showcased there, which I will be reviewing eventually after the event. For sure there will be short talks/seminars, for bloggers who wish to take this ‘hobby’ to something that can help them earn in the long run, too. Well, that’s one of the few things I’m sure people would be curious to know about. And then there’s the part where you can meet new people and build your ~blogging network~.
Also, this event will be held in SM Aura. I’ve never been there so this event is perfect because I finally have a reason to go to SM Aura, lol. And I heard Yabu has a branch there? Since I’m flying solo, I might as well have lunch here?
I hope there won’t be too many people then. Nah, there probably will be a LOT since it’s on a Saturday.
