Davao Bloggers Christmas Party

Davao Bloggers

December 4 was the date and Mam Bebs Bakeshop was the place to be. Avatar Media successfully launched with the Davao Bloggers’ Christmas Party which was attended by some 20 Davao bloggers and special guest, Google Country Consultant, Aileen Apolo.

The party, hosted by Migs Hipolito, began with the formation of Davao Bloggers and the election of its officers. Yours truly was fortunately voted by the majority to be the group’s president. Serving with me this coming year are:

Mam Bebs PalabokLachi's Roasted Walnut Choco Supreme

After the elections, the party-goers got to enjoy some food from Mam Bebs and a very delicious buffet of pastries from Lachi’s Sans Rival, Atbp.

The program resumed with some raffle prizes from Firefox, in celebration of their fifth birthday. Raffle prizes were also given by Padd Solutions, Faust Principe, WordPress, and Google and Blogger.

Avatar Media was able to launch several of its projects with the introduction of Ria, Dr. Jim Haw, and Lyle…

  • Blog Davao, a blog aggregator and directory of blog about Davao and by Davaoeños;
  • My Davao Jobs, on online listing of jobs within Davao City, Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, and Davao Oriental; and
  • Adbender Ad Network, a soon to be launched ad network of Mindanao bloggers, which currently offers free advertising for blogs, sites, companies, and events.

The party-goers then exchanged gifts, and received more freebies and raffle prizes. The biggest winner of the night was Andrew who received a free HD Satellite Kit and three months subscription from Cignal TV.

It was definitely a successful launch of Avatar Media, a good start for Davao Bloggers, and a sign of great things to come for the local community of bloggers.

Thank you to all the attendees, Avatar Media, and all the sponsors: Campaigns Davao and Cignal TV, Councilor Louie John Bonguyan, Padd Solutions, and Lachi’s Sans Rival Atbp!
