Participants and bloggers were enthusiastic and eager upon hearing the 1st Blogger Fest location at Thunderbird Resorts, one could imagine a high-end venue would host a gathering for Pinoy community of bloggers. The event was conceptualized by Azrael Coladilla and Manila Bloggers Network in partnership with Thunderbird Resorts.
Azrael Coladilla quoted on manilabloggers.blogspot.com, “The objective of the event is to have a venue for free mentorship on blogging and as well as networking with Filipino bloggers and participating companies.”
Bloggers were assembled along Makati City pick-up point for a free bus ride to the destination and vice versa. Workshops, talks, lunch and snacks were all given without having to shell-out a single penny. Brought to us by the event’s generous sponsors: Thunderbird Resorts, Zest Air and partners: Travelbook.ph, Nuffnang, Enjoy Philippines, Baicapture, Solidhosting.ph, Dependable Printing, Perfect Renders and Manila Bloggers Network.
