Laguna has always been very special for me. I have a different choices of beautiful attractions in the province of Laguna. There are places I know that I can visit to feel at home again. I did not grow up in Laguna but we have a huge clan in Los Banos and San Pablo. Mount Makiling, Seven Lakes, Pagsanjan are some of the beautiful places to escape the busy streets of Metro Manila. There are paved road inside the UP LosBanos Campus that I like to walk down. Typically, I can walk alone there, or run everyday if I can for like an hour or two. It’s a good time to think, to reflect in an environment with clean and real fresh air.

Next month, I’ll be coming back to Laguna and will be part of the very first Laguna Social Media Blogging Summit which will be happening on the 9th and 10th of August. The summit will be supported by the Provincial Government of Laguna under Governor Jeorge “ER” Ejercito, The Commission on Election or COMELEC, ALAM or Alab ng Mamamahayag and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA). #1Labs will take place at the Provincial Cultural Center in Santa Cruz, Laguna from 8am to 5pm for both days.

The first laguna Blogging Summit is free and will be presented by 22 speakers sharing various topics for about 20 minutes. Aside from promoting Laguna as  the next travel destination, participants will also learn the importance of Social Media in our daily lives. The growth of Social Media not just in the Philippines but in the whole world as an influencing factor in our lives is truly big. It’s not just Facebook that is growing, Twitter is also adding millions of users.And the blogging community attracts readers and followers too. It is perfect for everyone if you are planning to build your own brand. Nowadays, you really can’t ignore the power of Social Media.

Let’s just put it this way. Visitors spend most of their time on websites where they can read and share their insight. If you engage with your visitors most likely they will hang around and stay a little bit longer. Then they will learn something about your brand. And the longer they hang around with your site, the better exposed they are to your brand. I hope that makes a lot of sense.
