Why I'm Excited to be Part of the #DDIBarkada #DavaoDigitalInfluencers

I've been blogging full-time since 2010. Before that I am a Medical Receptionist in Fatima Medical Center, Marulas, Valenzuela City and I ran my family business as the owner/manager.

Have you heard anything about me? Well, I guess so, not bragging myself here, the time FACEBOOK went viral here in the Philippines and there's no Facebook page for information/services about Davao - I volunteered to manage to become the online information, from DLPC no-light to DCWD no water schedules.

My post get tons of praise every time I do social information that people share on and reaches some important people, added factor that I become one of the admin of the viral Facebook Group Page, "Dabawenyo Ka Kung" that made me more influential in terms of INFORMATION and SOURCE.

But I sincerely think blogging is much tougher. Now, that I am a WHAM (work-at-home-mom) there's so much amazing benefits I have discovered through blogging. When I start to write on and joining a few blogging communities, and become one of the admin of Filipino Bloggers Worldwide and Bloggers Worldwide, I thought hard on how to best express the value of hanging out with the people who think like I do as a writer. Only problem is that, most of the members of this group lived in different parts of the Philippines and some living abroad. The only way we communicate with each other is thru Facebook Messenger and/or Facebook Group Page itself.

I started to look for a group that surround groups of people that base here in Davao, well I have seen one but as they say again, "too many cooks, spoil the broth".

So I haven't get any, but positively thinking of finding a good one!

Finally, after a cup of coffee and a little chit chat from a friend, I remembered a saying, "We need leaders who will stand up for the little guy and listen once again".

This is what I like, as a writer/blogger we are diligence with our work, taking our activity with quickness and earnestness, and in my case anyway, respect and sincerity is what we want in return.

Why I am so excited to be part of the Davao Digital Influencers, Inc.?    When you're part of a blogging community or a social media group, you belong to a village that help raise awareness not just by writing alone, but also in developing sense of responsibility wherein you are there to - ENGAGE, INFLUENCE and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Being a host of people who helps a child development, coaches the society and in charge of responsible social media.

SUPPORT - Now that I am close to the people who think like I do, I have people who I can turn for suggestions on ways to improve my works and writing skills. Who can offer perspective and support with encouragement and love. Though with honest critiques and helpful suggestion which I am open with, a non-competitive and don't have the fear of being judge. A group to grow with.

FRIENDSHIP - Taking advantage to meet talented people. At first, the thinking of awkwardness I don't know them at all, or shall I say, I meet them casually, but the sense of belongingness is already there. By chatting with them and going with them makes me more excited knowing them as a person. Talking with them makes me realize that I am EXACTLY AT THE RIGHT PLACE! Realizing the common that we have is that, we are all INFLUENCERS.

All of these I expect to happen this September 3 at Polo Bistro, Marco Polo Davao.

The connections of joining Davao Digital Influencers Inc. will help spread my wings in the best way! 

Here I leave a quote to ponder:

You can't do it alone. As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people's ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, and spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life. ~ Amy Poehler
