Although I could still consider myself an introvert, the anxiety beast has fled and part of the credit goes to blogging, my blogger chums and Tipsy, the pink goo and one half of the Googly Gooeys, who told me that she suffered from the same anxiety too and as I quote her "Actually, any blogging event or a gathering of Instagrammers is technically an introvert's event. Well, that's just my theory because upon close analysis, I think all those who enjoy sharing stuff online are people who have noisy minds or are socially-evolved geeks and nerds—myself included." Thus, it was a total no-brainer as to why I got all excited and hyped for the Ultimate Cebu Blogging Community Meetup held at the Diamond Suites and Residences earlier this month!
They served a whole buffet of food and drinks but because I was busy eating, toasting wine and chit-chatting the night away, I didn't manage to capture enough food snaps. Oopsies.
We were also treated to a whole round of serenading from this guy and his guitar.
Special thanks to the official sponsors and partners to this year's Cebu Blogging Community Ultimate Meetup: The Diamond Suites and Residences, Flawless Face and Body Clinic, Cebu Teambuilding Services, Cebu Domain and the Philippine Information Agency!
PS: Have you met any bloggers from your city? How did it go? If not, I highly suggest that you do. You'll find a lot of kindred spirits in them. If you feel anxious, don't worry. A simple "hi" and "hello" does wonders. Take a chance.
