Last February 27, 2016, Nuffnang Philippines hosted the biggest blog and social media conference, Blogopolis 4D. Blogopolis has been a yearly tradition by Nuffnang Philippines as an effort to gather the country’s top bloggers, best social media influencers, and finest digital experts to share their knowledge and insights about the blogosphere. As the fourth instalment, Blogopolis 4D focused on the four dimensions of blogosphere – Dialogue, Diversity, Device, and Direction.

Dialogue talked about the evolution of blog contents and how advertisers utilize these contents to amplify their marketing efforts. Diversity aimed to educate the community on how to promote themselves in the blogosphere. It gave emphasis on the learnings about how to make yourself and your blog stand out.  Device tackled ways on how to maximize the digital space for furthering our blogs. It also answered the question: “With the advancement of technology, how are bloggers, brands and social media campaigns able to “break the Internet”?”. Direction gave an overview of what’s next for social media and blogging. Direction also answered questions about the digital trends in the Philippines.

It was only ten in the morning when conference attendees started filling up Green Sun Hotel’s lobby. Excited faces peeking through the closed glass doors of Axon Hall, trying to confine their excitement as they fell in line. Composed and calm, the attendees patiently waited for the registration to start. An hour later, their faces lit up when the doors of Axon Hall finally opened.

The conference ended at 8’o clock in the evening, a little late than expected. It was a Saturday spent well for all of us. A day full of digital and social learnings. Blogopolis is indeed a gathering of the Philippine blogosphere community.

ARNE_DSC2269_ ARNE_DSC2271_ ARNE_DSC2314_ ARNE_DSC2519_

Seeing the show slowly closing, I knew in that moment that it was a success. It felt like I was watching a good film and the end credits is slowly scrolling up – black background, names of the artists in text, heart touching music cues in – that feeling you want to hit pause and rewind.  It wasn’t an easy ride putting up Blogopolis and wanting to slay it in the end. It was a tough fight and a rough journey from the very start, but everything was worth it. The moment I saw the faces full of excitement and delight, I knew that all the hardship were worth it.
ARNE_DSC7718_ ARNE_DSC7724_

We all hope that everyone who attended learned a lot from our speakers and panelists who were very generous in sharing with us their knowledge, tips and insights on the world of blogging and social media. We hope, through Blogopolis, we sparked up the inner blogger in you, inspire you to continue blogging and writing, and pushed you to step up in this crazy but fun digital world.

It’s been weeks now, but we are still in hype of what Blogopolis 4D turned out and that’s all because of you and your support. A big thanks to all of you who attended and participated in this year’s Blogopolis and we are so much more excited for the next year(s). *virtual group hug* See y’all again soon! :)
