Businesses and Bloggers unite: The Blogapalooza Experience
It’s my first time to attend in a blogging event and I was only expecting talks from known bloggers and their featured products. But to my surprise, it’s more than that. 🙂
Bloggers and businesses volt in!
Blogapalooza is jointly organized by Vince Golangco of When In Manila and Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet. It is an invite-only event that gives bloggers a chance to connect with businesses, and for businesses, more chance to expose their featured products and services online.
Known bloggers and online personalities graced the stage to share their experience. Too bad I wasn’t able to catch Mikey Bustos, Bogart the Explorer and other speakers, but good thing I saw Karen Bordador and the Boy’s night Out trio! 🙂
I was able to explore the event to hang out on different booths, and here’s what I saw: (sorry for blurry photos! -me)
Love their sample treats! Good thing I wasn’t able to have my lunch lol! 😛 (free food ftw! #busog)
I made new blogger friends along the way, yay! 🙂
Not just an blogger’s/businesses’ meet
While the bloggers, businesses and the speakers do their own thing, cute pink piggybanks are roaming around during the event. Blogapalooza and Piggy Bank Movement joined forces to raise funds for Typhoon Yolanda victims. All of the proceeds will be donated to World Vision Philippines. One of the typhoon Yolanda survivors (from World Vision Philippines) has shared her story: (source)

Went home with a LOT of goodies from different sponsors: (Thank you very much! <3)
