A day in the life of a blogger entails attending events that span from 3 hours to a whole day affair, taking lots of pictures/videos while listening to the speakers, talking to a lot of people and finding the time to write on top of their work or school schedule. Bloggers gather twice a year to network and up their game via iBlog and Blogapalooza. However there is no formal organization or association that exists in the Philippines to empower bloggers and bridge their gap to untapped brands.
The Metro Blogger’s 1st Bloggers Night Out held at the Gramercy Skypark last October 22 was a welcome break to this fast-paced routine. A diverse group of bloggers and brands were present, from lifestyle, fashion, food, travel, technology. It was fun mingling face to face in an informal setting, just getting to know each other and exchanging ideas about various facets of the blogging world.
For those who don’t know yet, Metro Blogger is a social circle or organization of bloggers around the metro. It aims to be an avenue to disseminate information, event invitations, new products and services and campaigns that are of great interest to everyone. This is fueled by a team of passionate writers who share similar views about personal and professional know-how in life.
They work hand in hand with different brands such as Rapid Cloud Singapore, a top Singapore web hosting and e-Business consulting company; Hawk Bags, recognized for their high quality bags using the finest materials available, superior craftsmanship, durability, innovation, and exceptional design with practical functionality; Slimmers World International, the Philippines’ foremost name in Slimming, Health, Fitness and Beauty with over 35 years of excellent service in providing great bodies & great skin; Emerge Systems Sdn. Bhd., South East Asia’s premier enterprise website and e-commerce solutions provider; iTWORKS Global Solutions; and Kingdom Magazine.
I am excited to work with these brands in the near future as well as attending the upcoming Metro Blogger events! Thank you Ana and Choy for the invite and the goodies!
