COZ YOU’RE HOLLYWOOD
It was like a disease Raphael Balbaboco injected on the three of us. Me and two other classmates back in college. We were tumblr noobs and the next thing we knew, we were on our way to a commercialized coffee shop where a couple of tumbloggers from Batangas were waiting. That one fine afternoon, when (if i’m not mistaken) we have to skip a minor subject for an experience we’ll never forget, to take part on the the first Tumblr Ala Eh Meet Up.
Eleven meet up in three years, 2 from back in 2010, 5 in 2011, 2 in 2012 and a couple of blockbuster meet up from last year, TAEMU 10 and 11, done in two consecutive months. As the hype increases so are the attendees, it’s safe to assume that Tumblr Ala Meet Up might be one of the most anticipated, most attended, consistent and most successful local meet up there is.
For our 30th issue, we welcome 2014 with our Annual Power Issue dedicated to all the tumbloggers’ gathering on the record. This month we magnify the timeline that brought Tumblr Ala Eh Meet Up on nearly a dozen cycle, a special interview with the organizers, and what we can learn from them. We’ll also tap our resident tumbloggers on how they feel about their first meet up experiences. We also have James Hernando on the Tumblr Meet Up for Dummies: Everything a Newbie needs to learn, expect, and know in able to Survive a Meet Up. Plus, Pael balbaboco on the roster of active celebrities on tumblr. All that and more on our primer issue this year.
Happy New Year to our beloved readers. Our deepest gratitude to you all for all your messages, submissions, comments and suggestions. your participation really matters to us for it keeps our online magazine alive and still on the run. Thank you!
