And lastly, there is the annual iBlog: Philippine Blogging Summit which started in 2006 and being hosted by the UP Law-ISP. It is an open event for Filipino bloggers where famous Pinoy bloggers give informative talks and more than 300 bloggers attend.
This event tackles all blog-related topics. In last year’s 2-day summit event they focused on the following topics:
Blogging for Business (entrepreneurs, corporations, non-government organizations, and similar entities). Received proposals on topics that can help businesses better understand how they can tap blogs as a marketing and promotional tool, and how to work effectively with bloggers to achieve that purpose (i.e. through events, contests, advertising, and the like).
The second day focused on topics of interest for Bloggers in general, such as introduction to blogging, use of photos and videos, blogging policies, and blog promotion.
That’s it for today!
DAILY PRAYER :
“Dear Lord, Guide me in my daily tasks. May I learn something new every day and make use of what I’ve learned to improve myself. Keep me inspired and help me to stay focus so I may finish what I have planned to accomplish.
