Rolled Into One Mom Events: BLOGAPALOOZA 2014

I had the most awesome time at my first Blogapalooza event! Probably the biggest business to blogger  event I have been to so far. Aside from seeing other Mommy Bloggers which proved to me that they are real live people, lol, I was like a kid on Christmas Day opening up my presents one by one and getting awed at this opportunity that knocked at my door. 

That's me - at the lobby of the SM Aura SMX Convention Center - inhibitions out the window, I posed for the cam to prove that I was really at the event! 

My badge! Was so proud, I had to take a picture.

Unlock our WiFi Wall challenge by Zion Wifi! I won a gift card! Experience free wifi all the time with Zion!!! (Will post more details about the partners on separate blogs soon!) 

Yummy lasagna taste taste courtesy of the House of Lasagna. I came back for a second serving. (Don't tell anyone! lol)

This is my first time and definitely not the last. Not only did it help my goal to spread my mommy blogger wings but I also learned a lot of blogging basics from the speakers! Thank you very much , , GLOBE, Easy Taxi, Chooks to Go and all the other sponsors!!! My blogging life just got a whole lot more enjoyable! Till next time!!!! :-)

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
