The Nuffnang Roadshow 2013 in Cebu

August 31, 2013

Late post? Indeed! This has been in my folder for almost a month now and yeah super late post. It should have been posted sooner but I guess it's better late than never, right? :D Anyways, this was happened last August 3, 2013 at The Henry Hotel in Banilad, Cebu.  My separate photo diary post for this hotel will be up soon.

A week before the said date I got an email from Nuffnang, I felt so excited because it was my first time receiving invites related to blogging. Though, it took me days before I confirm my attendance because of my fear and honestly I had my second thoughts of going or not. I even asked my fellow blogger if she also had an invite since I'd like to know first if I have someone I knew already who will come too. You know, I'm quite scared and I'm such a newbie! The thought of meeting some bloggers terrified me! However, thanks to Cheryl who encouraged me to attend and said that I should grab the chance.I coped up my fear despite of my nervousness when I came at the venue. Can't define the words! LOL.

So basically, the organizers enlightened us on what Nuffnang is and what are the benefits of being part of it They introduced to us the Nuffnang’s Talent Program as well. We have given the chance to ask questions even. It really was a whole interesting, fun, and interactive day for all us!

Who are the people behind the event?

Above is Mr. Abe Olandres, Nuffnang's Country Manager. I definitely learned a lot from him and  below were the tips I was able to list down. 
  • Focus on your passion - Try to find that 'thing' your heart wanted. You can try fashion, food, etc.. until you'll figured it out which really is the one.
  • Always strike a difference - Make your own and that will stand out among the rest. Show them what you can do best.
  • Always be grounded. Look back and never forget the reason why you are doing it.
  • Patience. It's a key. Don't hurry things out. It will come to you at the right time.
Here's the bubbly Ms. Thei Palijo. She's part of the Nuffnang Community Team. :) 
And here's Ms. Trixie Esguerra of That Girl Trixie who is from Nuffnang Talent Team. And since I wasn't able to take a picture of her as she talked about the Talent Program, I grabbed a pic from her blog. :D #sorrypo I love her blog!

Now, what is Nuffnang? Here's some details I got from
THE NAME: Nuff Nang is a Jaifakan word which translates to "Real good or real cool."
Our co-founders found a Jaifakan word apt to name the company they were international students in London when they first thought of starting the company.
THE STORY: " was launched on 27th Feb 2007, and had 300 bloggers signed up within the first 3 days. launched shortly after, during April 2007.

Nuffnang is a blog advertising community that continuously building relationships to a growing numbers of bloggers. Bloggers part of it is called 'Nuffnangers'. Cool, right? Bloggers are served with ads of various advertisers through Nuffnang. To make everything fun, they even provide bloggers the opportunity to join events, giveaways, and product launches.
