    1. Hi Johan,

      The bloggers have first been screened for their living in Singapore and writing about things that matter to business, such as product and services reviews in certain verticals (tech, travel, food, luxury, entertainment…) or more directly about certain business activities like social media, entrepreneurship, etc. Some very popular bloggers talking about personal or other sensitive topics (race, religion, politics…) were left aside, as it is not relevant for ASEAN UP to talk about these matters.

      Secondly, bloggers were picked according to various criteria of quality, including:
      -authority of their blog domains in search engines
      -size of online communities and social authority
      -quality of their articles and pictures
      -design of their blog/website

      Finally, for the sake of variety, bloggers were chosen from different horizons and styles, in order to present a diverse panel. There are many lifestyle, travel or fashion blogs; the ones selected here are always standing out in their particular niche thanks to one or more of the quality criteria presented above.

      Hope it helps!
