Davao Blogger's Party 1

We made history!

That's what they said last night when we attended the first ever Davao Blogger's Party. It was the first blogger's party organized outside Metro Manila.

When Jona and I arrived at NetFront Cafe (it's the newest internet cafe/coffee shop in the city), we saw Avy, Pearl, Red and Ced outside. It took us a couple of minutes before actually deciding to go inside. You see, we were the "shy bunch". Nyahaha. Anyway, we mustered up the courage... actually it was Red who went inside first.

Before, we went inside we got the chance to finally meet up with Bam. Hellooo Bam! It was soo nice meeting you there and finally hearing you chatter. :P Legendary, it's what Avy would call it. Really. Really. Nice meeting you there. Thanks for helping us out at the Google-lympics.

We met Mr.Blogie, Mr. Dominique, Mr. Jun , Ria and a whole lot more. People from Bisaya Bloggers were there as well. Most of them are aquainted with each other, already and most of them are a friendly bunch.

What I enjoyed most were the presentations, because I learned a lot. It was actually worth the blogger's time because they gave out tips about how to make maney just by blogging and more.

Mr. Blogie presented the DavaoBlogs. Ms. Aileen Apolo the Google Representative of Philippines was there and everyone got the chance to ask her about "Google Adsense/Adwords". She talked about Web Marketing. Mr. Abe from Yugatech, presented the Blogging Best Practices and Ms. Janette Toral of Digital Filipino, presented the Digital Filipino Club.

So, you see aside from the "socializing" and the "getting-to-know-you's" we were there to learn from each other as well. It was a fun night, although I was sooo silent most of the time. Hehe.

Before they ended the party we had the "Google-lympics" which actually took up most of the time but gave others, those who did not participate the chance to be aquainted with each other.

Bam and Mr. Dominique of VillageIdiotSavant won the most-wanted shirt from Google, while Pearl and I both got the Stiks and Stones game from Google.

I'm sorry no pictures. I'm soo lola, forgetting the camera. Rawr. Anyway, I'll be scouring other blogs for the pictures they will upload. Hehe. :)

Credit: the picture with the bloggers was from Mr. Dominique.

All in all it was a great night! :)

Nice to hear you had a great time at the Davao blogger’s meet.
I am a bit skeptical about making money with your blog. Abe claims he makes a lot of money but I still wonder how this is possible.
But, you can always try.
