Major Highlights from the first (1st) Edition of CAG Blogger’s Forum
Because learning is best done when it is practical, the bloggers in attendance were encouraged to come along with their working tool (laptops, tablets etc.)
They were taught how to use Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to increase their visibility on the web and rank higher on search engines. The bloggers were introduced to different important plug-ins that are highly beneficial to the growth of their platforms. And they learnt new strategies to make their blogging more professional to improve/increase their online awareness and importance.
Food and drink was provided by 12 Baskets, bloggers received collaboration opportunities with notable brands like Style By Jedi, Kaabaa Kitchen Bakery and they also had the opportunity to network among each other.
