The First Bloggers’ Event at Bacolod!!

I have been offline for a few days now. I was not able to write my updates immediately because aside from the fact that my children have already gotten their own FaceBook accounts, all of them and including the father are now all addicted to FarmTown. The mom, who is suffering from terrible headache and body pains, remained sidetracked for awhile to rest.

Anyway, I can’t possibly pass the days by without blogging about the First DigitalFilipino Club’s Bloggers Networking Event that happened last July 4 at Casin0 Filipino Hotel, Golden Fields, Bacolod City. The event was a blast! It was the first of the things that I really hoped for to happen to bloggers here in our place. Special thanks to Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino Club whom I have met over a year now but only in the online world. She made things possible together with PAGCOR Bacolod, their CEO Efraim Genuino, COO Rafael Francisco, VP Joey Benedicto, Bacolod branch manager Fidel Fuentes, MCCRD Assistant Manager Nancy Orcullo, Senior Marketing Manager Raymund Gatuslao, Web Management Unit Head Francis Gary Viray and others.

Thank you so much Ms. Janette! Not only for bring the event to us but for many things that you have helped the Negros Bloggers and me! We love you!

I would also like to thank those people who attended the event. Some have traveled from far places just to be with us! Thank you to Enrico Dee of Byahilo, Iloilo Bloggers and other members of Negros Bloggers outside Bacolod City.

Anyway, aside from all the sumptuous food which this pregnant mom enjoyed, I was ecstatic to meet many people from different places in Negros Island and also the blogging community of Iloilo City. The event was attended by 62 guests from bloggers, social networking website members like FaceBook and Friendster, e-service providers, SEO professionals and others. It was a great night of networking and opportunity building especially from bloggers and those who wanted to learn how to blog!

Ms. Janette also gave a very comprehensive presentation about the current DigitalFilipino Club actives, namely:

  • Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2009 Update
  • DigitalFilipino Web Awards 2009
  • Philippine Schools Cyberfair 2010

After the event, I was so sad to leave immediately. I needed too because I am already feeling body pains and needed to rest. I was not able to try my luck at the tables while some of them won as they have told me the next day. They got FREE money from playing!

Oh well, I am glad that the event happened. It was really inspiring that is why the core members of Negros Bloggers are already excited to plan our next move to launch series of events here in Bacolod. We are so excited!!

Of before I forget, I would like to thank the core members of Negros Bloggers (Glady, Mae,Β  Sigrid, Dennis, Maricar, MM, Dha-Dha and Ace) who gave their best to help and make the event possible! I love you guys!
