Thoughts on my first-ever Blogapalooza experience

Whew! Pagoda Cold Wave lotion ang peg! Hahaha! That’s why I didn’t immediately post about my Blogapalooza experience.

It was great for a first-timer like me. I was with my blogger-friend who writes at Wordsmith-Not (it’s also her first time to attend) and we enjoyed going around the booths in SMX Convention Center in SM Aura.

It’s crazy that despite bringing a point-and-shoot camera and my phone with me, I wasn’t able to take much photos as I wanted to. I was too busy going around the booths, asking exhibitors about their products and services, and joining some fun games.

We were there for only a few hours, but we managed to find some interesting products, services, and activities there. There were booths there that we unfortunately failed to visit because we had to proceed to another venue for an activity (more on that soon). Some booths were also unmanned when we got there, so we just proceeded to the next one.

One thing I didn’t also get to do was meet other bloggers, particularly mom bloggers. I guess I was just too shy to approach them. Sorry!

And because I was preggy and I had to go home for mommy duties, my friend and I went home at around 4 PM.

Some of my Blogapalooza 2014 loot. Incomplete because my daughter started taking some stuff while I was arranging them. 🙂

All in all, it was tiring but fun. I enjoyed going to the booths of Krispy Kreme, Zing, Niu by Vikings, Victoria Court (hooray for 25% discount, LOL!) and AMPR because of their activities. Brain Fit resonated well to me and my friend, since we’re moms. Gaming Library was cool because they have Cards Against Humanity (which I discovered through a video just last week) and some other great games. Sample Room gave out wonderful treats as well. And the pretty lady from Canon took a photo of us and even searched for us around the venue to give our pics personally — one copy each.

I’ll be checking out the PR kits I’ve received from some of the exhibitors and will be posting them soon on this blog.

Thanks Blogapalooza 2014 and When in Manila and Our Awesome Planet for this wonderful event. Next time I’ll have to be there early and do away with shyness to maximize the experience. 😛
