The Urban Roamer had the opportunity the check out one of the biggest events of the year specially targeting bloggers like myself, the Blogapalooza 2013, my first time to be attending such an event.
And I never realized how interesting and fun such an event was, especially with the freebies and other perks attending bloggers get to receive like gift certificates, food, and other prizes courtesy of the featured businesses at the event. After all, the event itself aims to bring bloggers and these businesses together in this new age of interactivity, social media, digital marketing, and everything else in between. Continue reading
It has been a week since Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) struck down a significant portion of Central Philippines from Samar to Palawan, leaving an unprecedented trail of devastation that affecting many in those areas.
Metro Manila has been lucky to have been spared from this devastation. Despite this, many of us, especially those who remembered when Ondoy struck the metropolis, know how it feels to experience catastrophe. And at this time when the people who are supposed to do their jobs are finding themselves helpless, if not clueless, the Filipino spirit of bayanihan, of unity and perseverance still manages to overcome such challenges.
As we speak, there has been a massive outpouring of support to help the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. From volunteer efforts to event fund drives to various relief contributions, people have been helping in their own little way. Many have even foregone Christmas parties so that the money to be spent on them will be given to the typhoon victims instead.
If you haven’t done so, you are encouraged to do your part. It does not matter anymore whatever help you can give, go ahead and give it. It goes a long way.
To all who heeded the call of help from our kababayans in Central Philippines, mabuhay kayong lahat! Let us continue to help in our own way and make sure that they get the help and support they need as they rebuild their lives anew.

One of the biggest events in the Philippine online community has finally come! And for the first time, the Urban Roamer will be there!!!
I’m talking about Blogapalooza 2013 that is happening this Saturday, November 16 at the Function Room of SMX Aura in Taguig from 11 AM-9 PM.
But what is this Blogapalooza all about, you may ask? It is a one-of-a-kind event that links up the online community, especially bloggers like yours truly, with businesses and others who have something to offer or share whether it is a product or a service, whatever it may be. It is also an opportunity to link up with fellow bloggers and get to learn or share new ideas along the way.
Admission is free for bloggers but slots are limited. So better make a reservation by visiting http://blogapalooza.wheninmanila.com, where you can also find more information and updates on this event.
