“When blogging was a happy place then, without competition and without number of likes,  followers, and subs to get paranoid with.”  (DeiVille, September 2020)




1st Blogger Fest
RIZAL – Blogging for less than a year now, started from scratch using free platform and shared knowledge from newbie bloggers as well. As I learned the hoops and nitty gritty, somehow we acquired knowledge little by little and started to gain friends at the same time. 
Organized blogging events like this is another venue to learn and increase exposure in the world of blogosphere.

Photoblogging Essentials by Anton Carranza

Several talks and workshops awaits the pro and amateur bloggers. The Blogging 101 of Azrael Coladilla hit the stage first. He featured his pop culture & events blogsite, shared some tips on promoting a blog. 
One phrase he quoted: “Write contents for human & not for search engines”. A mixed reaction for some and an opposing argument to put forward.
I once, tried paid posting, the offer are not that flourishing, but initially I write based on personal encounters. It’s not the fault of a blogger if an offer comes in, honestly in my theory, it’s an opportunity for freelancers to monetize the site. Obviously, there are numerous content pertaining for SE’s benefits. Noticeably paid blogs that appears overrated in terms of content, technically perceived as fake by nature. These blogs  are often advised to let the readers know that they are actually reading advertorials.  
On the deck, Jonel Uy’s talk regarding an interesting topic about SEO in mind and the photo blogging of Anton Carranza. Also in line was Food Blogging by Fritz Villafuerte, Domain & DNS Management, How to secure your blog from SolidHosting.ph and a lot more activities for bloggers.

Blogger Fest gave out raffles and special prizes for lucky bloggers. The most awaited price was from Thunderbird’s Free Accommodation Package and  Zest Air’s 3 round-trip ticket good for two [2] anywhere in the Philippines. There were shirts, domain hostings, mags given away. I did not won any, but happy enough to play the Casino’s Fiesta Coupon worth PhP100 [included in each blogger’s kit], you can either encash or start gambling it! =) My buddies, we played the slot machines, I gain PhP531, a beginner’s luck? I want to play more but they stopped me thinking I may get lost afterwards. Our Blogger Fest and casino experience was so overwhelming. =)
