Since summer of this year, I have been into several blogger’s events to accompany my kids or to just tag along and be involved with the activities of my kids. With these, I came to know that what they are involved in and why they are so hook to the net!
My kids did encouraged me to put this blog and the next thing I knew my Fridays have to be reserved for these events or I have to adjust my schedule no matter how busy and tired in order to be with them . I must admit I did enjoy blogger’s party and now my free time is spend on catching up with the blogs that I have missed writing.
As a doctor, I have attended so many seminars, symposium sponsored by drug companies and launchings of new medicines in classy hotels with sit-down dinner, socializing, and many freebies too. It came to a point that I got tired of attending them.
As I look back, these bloggers events are reminiscent of the events that I used to attend but with so many twists. Attendees are from all ages (I remember, at the David and Goliath bloggers party, there was a contest on who was the youngest and oldest attendee). All occupations, all professions are welcome as long as one blogs. No dress code when attending the events (carefree dressing, casual, rugged. smart casual, I love it, reminiscent of my “maong & T shirt” days at UP). I love the idea that the young crowd is apt to more undertakings that are worthwhile.
Some of the blog events that I have attended are David and Goliath, Chow king Halo-Halo, Chao Fan, Buhay ng Coke 1 & 2 and Ponds at SM Hypermart Taste Asia, BK Bloggers Blowout, etc, most recent is Influential blog awards and soon the WordCAMP.
I must admit that I am enjoying these blogging events because it brought me closer to my kids life and the bonding that we share is incomparable than what we use to have before. I came to know more about them their thoughts, feelings and even their aspirations from their blogs, which I read almost everyday. I always look forward to their new entries everyday. They would ask me “ Mama, nag blog kana ba? Do have a new blog?
Now is the time to capture these moments with my kids, thank you blogging!
