Fast forward to today's blogging scene, I still find it awesomazing how the medium has evolved. From mere online journals, blogging can now be considered as a massive communication and marketing tool utilized by professionals and enthusiasts alike, all consciously, or even unconsciously, reaching a scope of audience in the vast world wide web. We can safely say that in the country, blogging is a powerful form of digital media that helps individuals, brands, and even advocacies reach out and deliver their message more effectively.
With this, St. Paul University Manila has stood up to organize the first-of-its-kind event in Manila -- Blog O' Speak: The First Manila Blog Convention, to introduce blogging not just to students, but to everyone interested to start their own blog.
I was invited to be a guest speaker in this event, but it's not the only reason why I'd encourage you to attend. If you're seriously thinking of starting a blog but don't know how, then this is perfect for you! Blogging may seem easy, but to be an "effective blogger", you might need some guidance. And this is what this event is for... You'll bag learnings after learnings taken from our experiences and mistakes. ☆～（ゝ。∂）b
Speakers include media practitioners Inday Espina-Varona (ABS-CBN), Kai Magsanoc (goodvibes.com), Ime Morales (Freelance Writers Guild of the Philippines), Lito Virina (advertising practitioner and faculty), Gellie Abogado (gelleesh.com), Sai Montes (fashionbysai.com), Sumi Go (thepurpledoll.net), and Kaycee Enerva (kikaysikat.com).
