BlogFest.Asia – Where Bloggers Gather

The 2nd BlogFest.Asia which was held in Penang from the 1st of October until the 3rd of October has officially ended. The 3rd BlogFest.Asia’s location has yet to be confirmed, but there are a few countries that are being taken into consideration.

The bloggers that I met during these 2 days (I did not turn up for the events that were held on the 1st day (sadly) due to some problems that I was facing) were fun, energetic and are pretty active in the blogging sphere. Bloggers from all over the world came here, we even had USA bloggers who attended the event! We, the local Penangites were there as well as many other bloggers that came from other parts of Malaysia. The foreign visitors include bloggers from Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Indonesia, USA, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India as well as the Philippines.

Thanks to Criz for pointing out that I missed Indonesia ^^” Sorry to our fellow Indonesian bloggers!

The local Chinese bloggers awards were also held on the 2nd day. It was hosted by MyBloggerCon.
