This year’s blogapalooza celebrated unity as one generation, GENERATION D (Generation Digital). It was an exclusive event for bloggers/influencers/content creators and I was lucky enough to attend this occasion which was held at City of Dreams Manila last November 18, 2017.

The gathering was filled with booths from the sponsors and a Blogapalooza experience would not be one without visiting them. This is such a pleasant opportunity for us bloggers to be able to talk to the representatives of each company and get to know what services and products they offer and build relationships with them.

Each booth will have you register first(name, contact number, email address and blog site), some had their own interactive games to make the event worthwhile for the delegates and receive some freebies or win a prize. Here are few of the stalls I visited.

This is actually one of my favorite booths cause I love nail spas.

So basically, after I registered I played their game wherein I had to be blindfolded and rotate the cube they provided, in each side of it has a secret message showing whether you win or not.

My eyes were not closed, I just smiled. Haha

Tadaaaa! Fortunately I won a pampering session!

Various speakers like bloggers, influencers, and leaders in their own class were present in the event who gave a talk with different topics about social media, strategies, cybercrime law and many more.

img_5467-1img_5469-1img_5480-1

The first speaker was PCOO Asec. Kris Ablan who talked about the government efforts for the digital community. It is tremendously important for everyone to help the government promote the effective and responsible use of social media.

Justin Joyas, columnist and social media head for GMA news, Anna Oposa, writer, Niccolo Cosme, conceptual photographer, and Jane Uymatiao, a social media practitioner & resource speaker were all present in the event to talk about social media for social good. Social media is indeed  truly effective for fundraising for foundations as well as when there are disasters around the globe. I even remembered Justin talking about “Fake News” and how to distinguish fake sites.

I kinda felt sad cause Mikael Daez was supposed to be there as the moderator but I don’t know what happened, he was not present at attend the event; however, I learned a lot from these four people.

They shared their personal experiences when it comes to making video contents, specially now that a vast number of people are more fond of watching videos instead of reading.
