It has been a very tiring day yet a fulfilled one for us. Thanks to iBlog 7th Blogging Summit which was held from April 1 and 2, 2011 at the Malcolm Theater, Malcolm Hall , UP College of Law Diliman.
I wanna personally thank you for all the information we needed to know . From the great food to fantastic freebies, amazing photo shoots and meet and greet your fellow bloggers.
We arrived at 6:25 . ( We’re not that excited =) )
The program started at 9am if Im not mistaken . Roby Alampay, Interaksyon TV5 ” Fast changing yet we dont know how far these can go and how far these will lead us (talking about social media, networking) I agree when he mentioned success can be gauged not just by hits, pageviews but by interaction. Creating a platform that will highlight a good blog is one of them. Establish a new stuff for people to get involved with your blog.
Then it followed by Jonel Uy & Jinkee Umali( talked about blogging 101) sharing experiences that can be beneficial to others and writing in purpose with relevance were the things they have discussed . I was also entertained with Adrian Jeric Peña as he shared his thoughts about Podcasting 101 which was really interesting. He started blogging at a young age too. Kudos!
What caught my attention was the funny speaker of the house who discussed how to deal with writer’s block. He was damn funny but he made a lot of sense ( Roy Dela Cruz )
Sonnie Santos, Grace Nicolas on the other hand shared their thoughts about blogging for advocacy. Unfortunately , Ivan Henares was not around .
Fitz Villafuerte) shared his knowledge about blog traffic without SEO We’ve learned the 3 major C’s community, content and conversation. Joining group blogs , going to forums are the keys to build traffic without SEO. Mon Macutay meanwhile talked about how you integrate facebook towards your blog. I also like the explanation made by Michael Rubio that “blogging is the best discussion platform” .
And lastly Ria Tirazona as she defined blogging and social relationships as a support system. I also wanna personally thank Janette Toral for the warmest greetings as she greeted us from the moment she stepped out of her car .
I believe we were the first group to arrive at the venue.
For some people, blogging is totally dead. But for me it is still alive!!!
