FBN 10th Annual Christmas Party: A Fun-filled + Meaningful Day

The Filipino Bloggers Network {FBN}, one of the most active Philippine-Based community of bloggers and influencers in the country, held its 10th Annual Christmas Party virtually last December 12.

FBN currently has almost 2,000 members around the country and continues to expand as it provides a venue for Filipino bloggers to interact with other members even those based overseas. Moderating the discussions and posting opportunities from several brands are co-admins Divine RC, and Richard Mamuyac, and Lariza Garcia.

The yearly event serves as a venue to reacquaint with fellow members around the country, celebrate the holiday season and create great new memories. Just like last year, the gathering was conducted online and livestreamed within the official FBN group page. Aside from the exciting prizes given away during the virtual games and raffle draws, a couple of members received financial assistance to support them in their family medical emergency. Indeed, it was both a fun-filled and meaningful day at the same time.

Mum Lists: 5 Top Things I love About Blogging

blogs, blogging, mum's thoughts, mum lists, a day in the life of mum

My simple goal to share my adventures and mis-adventures as a mum has turned out to be so much more. I have been a mum blogger for more than a decade now. Over the years, my blogging journey has been very fruitful and rewarding. It may have taken the back burner when I got busy looking after my school-aged little man, or doing freelance writing work, or since I landed a full-time position last year. It has continued to be a source of joy and fulfillment for me.

Having said that, I have listed 5 top reasons why I simply love blogging:

Chasing my passion

Blogging has allowed me to chase my passion ~ writing. It was Jared’s dad who suggested I give it a try because he knows that I absolutely love to write. I was also looking for ways to earn while I stay at home to care for my little man. It is rather timely that monetizing blogs has just become a trend. I made my very first blog on Blogspot. There, I shared anecdotes of our day-to-day lives, baby products that I have discovered, along with my personal musings.

Through my blog, I managed to chronicle my son’s childhood and re-discover my love for writing. I would spent hours upon hours drafting and writing posts, excited to publish them on the blog afterwards. I was also given the opportunity to write about topics and causes that are very close to my heart.

Sharing my blessings

In the past years, I’d always have a simple giveaway to celebrate my blog anniversary, but since the pandemic has made it difficult to ship prizes to the winners, I was unable to push through with my plans. But I have joined a group giveaway with my other mum blogger friends last year and it was such a big hit. Pooling our resources so we can provide one lucky mum with a laptop for her child’s online schooling is definitely most rewarding!

Indeed, my blog has also been a platform to share my blessings with my followers and supporters. Whether I share items I received from brands, or gifts and GCs, or of late, cash, it simply warms the heart that I am able to share in my own little way and to know that people appreciates it is truly very humbling.

Blogging Challenge Version 3: Why Are You Doing It?

Pinay Mommy Online tagged me earlier this month to do this blogging challenge. I have been meaning to do it but only found the time to do so now. 24/7 at home with the little man leaves little room for personal pursuits or time on the laptop. Well, unless I give him more time to tinker with his games, that is! But, yes, I am finally doing it and here’s hoping I’d be able to finish it through to the end, albeit I need to work double-time so I can catch up with the rest of the challenge.

Why Are You Doing It?
