Ok, so wala naman ako dapat dito haha but when Pax told me hindi sha magsasalita ng wala ako, hinga nalang ng malalim. Pax sent me a draft Powerpoint presentation the night before our talk na 5 pictures lang ang laman (hahaha) so i spent the day of the talk working on it like the biggest crammer sa class. Hehe. Which is masaya nadin coz Googling on the past Bloggers United events (from 1 to 5), parang ultimate throwback ang ganap! Grabe, those were the days!:)
Lineup of speakers before us were sobrang prestigious, dun ata ako pinaka jinerbyos. Parang, may care kaya sila sa BU? Or, alam ba nila ano ang BU?! ;p
Nanliit at ninerbyos talaga kami ni Pax! Pero we were prepared, not because we had days of planning and practice (dahil wala kami nyan lamnyoyan, lol) .. But because we know this topic by heart. Para lang tayong nag meeting with BU sponsors, hehe.
Breaks were spent with fellow speakers and panelists in this room! Di ako sanay, super special naman!:)
Had to have a photo with sir TJ Manotoc, also one of the Blogopolis speakers that afternoon:
When I went up the stage with Pax, everything was a blur na-- like this photo I took during the panel part na. Di ko to magagawa during the talk at hawak ko both mic and remote for the slides!;p
Thanks tracy for this photo! Never looked at my friends during the talk, sinestage fright ako so halos kausap ko lang si Pax the whole time! People were laughing though, sa simple hirit like normal words I use tulad ng "paandar", they enjoyed the talk and most especially Pax's comical relief!!!:)
Yun totoo, mukha kaming kumakanta dito!!!;p
The topic: Taking your Readers Offline: Successful Ways To Mount A Blog Event. In short, BU!
We were still super "high" from our laughtrip talk during the panel discussion, which came right after our presentation.
Siguro the most unforgettable part for me was when Franco, the event's host, asked us a final question: "What is the best comment you received from a reader online?"
Me: "Ako, for me I am a personal blogger na mahilig lang sa fashion. So for me the best comment I got is when the person is inspired not only sa outfits or looks ko, but they are also inspired by my story?! Peg in life, yun ang the best!
(And the Ms. Universe goes toooo! ;p Lolz)
A big thank you to our fellow panelists! And of course, to my forever partner Aisa Ipac! Tracy placed it best...we were a balance of the "good" answer and the super bentang answer--para hindi boring! I guess I can say na the past Bloggers United events were successful because of this balance.
Thanks Nuffnang for the sponsors gifts - Splash Hygienix, Splash Vitress, Revlon, Oishi!
And to all our friends and everyone who watched our talk and laughed with us... Thank you!!!!
Thanks NUFFNANG for including Bloggers United in your lineup this year, and again, thank you thank you Pax dude for inviting me to speak with you and for making this whole experience another "one for the books" for us as a duo! Akalain mo!!! ;) *Twirling hand dance*
Special thanks to digitalspidey.com for the talk photos!
