BlogFest 2010 Was A Smashing Success

Nakasimangot man kami sa picture sa itaas

Hindi ibig sabihin na galit kami

Pa-serious mode yan kasi ngarag na kaming lahat

That was taken two weekends ago

Sox Bloggers still found time to learn to cook Thai food

Pamparelax kumbaga at pambawas ng stress

Eh papano naman kasi this will be the first time that we’ll be hosting

The 1st BlogFest ever in this part of the Pilipinas

BlogFest SoCCSKSarGen 2010 was going to be a gathering of bloggers

It became a reality last December 11, 2010 in Gensan

Di naman namin inakala na totodo ang kalalabasan ng event na ito

With Kuya Avel‘s leadership, nabuo ang core group or organizing committee

Tulong-tulong talaga ang naging drama namin at kanya-kanyang assignment

Ito kasi ang magiging test ng strength ng SoCCSKSarGEn Bloggers bilang grupo

In less than three weeks, kumilos talaga kaming lahat

Ako yung devil’s advocate na taray-tarayan to keep the focus

Thankfully, magaan ang dating ng sponsors and supporters

Pati nga ang mga inimbitang speakers hindi kami nagkaproblema

IF YOU BLOG IT – THEY WILL COME

Kahit pa sabihing umabot na ng 100 ang nagpa-register online, kabado pa rin ang grupo

Pero nung napansin naming magiging box-office hit ang event, kampante na kami

Todo din ang suporta mula sa Davao Bloggers (and Avatar Media) kaya nakakataba talaga ng puso

Kung active kang blogger and nakita mo ang line-up ng speakers ng BlogFest

Mawiwindang ka talaga sa excitement and matataranta na pagbayad (AGAD) ng registration fee

And when the time came for each of our invited guests to deliver their talk

Mapapanganga ka sa paghanga kasi naman these are the pinagpipitagan sa Blogging community

Kung naka-attend lang sana si Mayor Darlene Custodio, kumpleto na sana ang kabonggahan ng BlogFest 2010

Wala kang itulak kabigin sa mga speakers, we really learned some major major points

Congressman Jun had the crowd in his hands – eh kasi naman he easily connected with us

From the bottom of my puso and in behalf of the Sox Bloggers

Maraming thank you kina Ria Jose, Jong Gonzales, Michelle Solon, Ryann Elumba,

Danilo Arao, Jay Jaboneta, Dale Palileo, Aileen Apolo-de Jesus,

Bob Soriano, Jun Acharon, Janette Toral and Brendel Balaga

Si Brendel isinali ko na kasi kahit thank you speech lang ang hirit nya, bongga pa din

Finally din natanggap na namin nina Ria and Brendel ang award namin as 2010’s Emerging & Influential Blogs

Siempre hindi magiging successful ang BlogFest SoCCSKSarGen 2010 without our sponsors

Maraming salamat sa aming Platinum Sponsor East Asia Royale Hotel

Big big thanks to our Gold Sponsors SMI and Smart Communications

And muchas gracias to our Silver Sponsors Gaisano Mall of Gensan and Dolores Hotels & Resorts

Grabe din ang ipinakitang suporta ng STI, PCWorx, Montage and Robinson’s Place

Royale Iris Studio Productions, Geisler Maclang and Opera Software lent their tulong too

Sana hindi kayo magsawa sa pagtulong sa amin in our future projects

Nung finally natapos ang BlogFest SoCCSKSarGen 2010 kitang-kita talaga ang tuwa naming lahat

All the hard work and sleepless nights are worth it talaga

The support for the T-Shirt Project was overwhelming

Para kasi ito sa isa sa mga Sox Bloggers na may sakit ngayon

Sana tuloy-tuloy na ito

Sa lahat ng mga kaberks ko sa Sox Bloggers

Love ko kayong lahat

Promise.
