To say that 2020 is one of the most challenging times in our lifetime would be an understatement. No one was spared… all people around the world was affected. As a content creator, we took this as opportunity to use our medium of influence to spread information, entertainment, and inspiration.
We opened the year with our BEST LIFE QATAR Reader’s Choice Award.
We also rolled out our first session of our TALK SERIES outside the content creator circle. As an offshoot of our Reader’s Choice which gave recognition to popular Filipino companies in Qatar, we’ve invited a few Filipino entrepreneurs to teach them how to maximize the use of social media in their business.
Little did we know that social media will be a most powerful weapon for what could be the biggest war that mankind will ever face in this generation.
The world literally stopped. Many of us are stuck in our homes. So we released a lot of useful blogs that will be helpful to all our readers.

When businesses and companies felt the effect of the pandemic, many expats turn to home business as an alternative source of income. We saw the rise of online businesses and took this as an opportunity to help in their promotion.
Also, another virus has hit a lot of people – it’s called PLANT-DEMIC. As a source of enjoyment, relaxation, and even alternative source of food and medicine, many of us became PLATITOS AND PLATITAS.
Aside from plants, many people also turned essential oilers

For Best Life Qatar Youtube Channel, we refused to go with the flow and we decided went ahead of the pack with the introduction of our SHORTS DOCUMENTARIES. We also got admitted to Youtube Program and saw our views picking up to the 1000 views per video. As an influencer, we tried our first step to entering the e-commerce world with the introduction of our first official merchandise.
And while, everyone of us are excited to for major celbrations in our life, we opted to have a virtual party of our daughter’s 7th birthday – a milestone for families and for a young girl turning to be a young girl.

Same goes with our online Holiday celebrations – a phenomenon which saw the rise of zoom app as one of the most used app globally.
