Davao Digital Influencers

such a lovely set up

First of all, kudos to the officers led by Mr. Glen Santillan for the success of Davao Digital Influencers, Inc.  (DDI, Inc.) grand launch and acquaintance party. Held last September 3, 2016 at Polo Bistro, Marco Polo Hotel, Davao City, passionate bloggers, video bloggers, and microbloggers gathered to celebrate the official start of the group. It was a night of socialization, fun and most of all a night of inspiration not just as digital influencers but as Davaoeños. A proof that we will rise up as one Davao after the unfortunate incident of bombing at Roxas Night Market which was just a night before our party.

“The timing was a meaningful one as we reminded our young base to use their talents anchored on universal and time-tested principles of truth and accuracy, independence, fairness and impartiality, humanity, and accountability”, posted by ASec Art Boncato in his official facebook account. He is also one of the guests during the party.

It is such an honor to be part of this community and I am looking forward for more fun and productive experiences with these awesome people. I also believe that posting your thoughts online is not just enough. It is also nice to go out and meet the people behind their blog sites and social media accounts. This is what I also like with this kind of gathering. I just love the reactions when bloggers met and say, “ahhhhh ikaw pala si >insert screen name<”.

Here’s a photo diary of what happened during the grand launch:

We also had fun games with cool prizes from our sponsors but I wasn’t able to take photos during the game because yeah I played but not lucky enough to win as lucky as Lucky. (Happy that http://www.luckysketch.com officially joined DDI. He got an awesome blog).

Thank you everyone and I hope to meet more influencers.
