Blogging is maybe one of the best things that has ever happened to my life. Its coming is just perfect especially during the time when I was pregnant, out of work and feeling unproductive while starting my career as a full-time homemaker in 2010. Thanks to Ate Claire who have introduced me to the amazing world of blogging. At first, I started blogging to ease away boredom since I am not really used to just sit down without doing anything at home but later on as I continuously update my blog and met a lot of friends online, I have realized that there is so much more to blogging than just a mere pastime.
My blogging life has become even more exciting when my friend Floraine added me to the Davao Bloggers Group on Facebook last 2011. Even with the several events that I have attended in the past, I was hesitant to become an official member then because I thought that it won’t make any difference at all considering that I can still get to attend events even if I am not an official member. But I suddenly have a change of mind and heart when I attended the Blog Weekend Bootcamp last September 2012. Before the bootcamp ended, I made sure to pay the registration fee and be one of the dignified official members of the Davao Bloggers Society. Hooray!
|And the happiest of all is.... ME! Hahaha|
And when I was finally inducted as one of the newest official members of the Davao Bloggers Society during the Acquaintance Party last May 3, 2013, I can’t help but be proud of myself. Hehehe. I know that being an official member entails a lot of responsibility and I am so grateful for the effort of the founders and officers of the DB Society for consistently reminding their members to act with decorum especially during events. Thank you Sir Mark Cabrera for presenting the Bloggers Manifesto that serves as the guiding principle for every DB member.

The 2nd Davao Bloggers’ Acquaintance Party and Induction Ceremony was a huge success. It was an extraordinary night for everyone and I also consider it as my lucky night because I won a cool bag from Smart during the Twitter raffle and a notebook during the game. Our group also won the Trivia Game that night. Thanks to the Trivia Night veterans and to Chamee’s astonishing handwriting. Peace girl! Hehehe

I appreciate the fact that it actually pays to be an official member of the Davao Bloggers Society. Being recognized as a certified member of the premier group of Bloggers in Mindanao is already an achievement. Aside from the perks and the recognition, it is very overwhelming to know that I belong to the community of smart and talented people. What’s even more rewarding of all is the fact that I have developed a profound friendship with the positive people in the group wherein I always feel like I am in the right place every time I attend blogging events and other activities of the group.

After almost three years in the world of blogging, I can proudly say that I have not only become productive but most importantly, I have found the perfect realm for me to grow and strive to become a better version of me as a mother, wife, woman, and as an individual with a purpose.
