Learning Things and Meeting Peeps at iBlog6

I finally got the chance to meet many bloggers in person yesterday when I attended the second day of the 6th Philippine Blogging Summit or iBlog6. I did not just had the chance to meet bloggers but I also got the chance to forge friendship with them and exchanged important information that will be helpful in my blogging career.

Kudos to the organizers of iBlog6 and their sponsors who made the event possible. They have a good roster of speakers that gave presentations that are informative and will be helpful to all bloggers, newbie or professional blogger alike.

Vince Golangco's presentation on video blogging opened up some ideas in my mind. If I will pursue video blogging in the future, his tips and tricks will be definitely useful.

Juned Sonido talked about Photo Blogging and displayed his arsenal of cameras on stage. His tips on street photography and candid shots is useful since I mostly use these styles on this blog. His most memorable tips for photoblogging is that the photographer is more important than the camera.  I also learned about him the importance of “Decisive Moments” in getting a remarkable picture.

The talk on blogging on mobile platforms and running contests on blogs are also informative. Jinoe Gavan's talk on running contests on blogs gave me an idea to run a certain contest for my third year as a blogger. Please watch out for the contest. :-)

It is also good to see some popular bloggers like Momblogger and Janette Toral. I have also met personally  Flowell who I just know online. It is also fun to see Marocharim hop on the stage to stress the message of his talks. He caught my attention and I am also considering incorporating his idea to talk about forgotten issues on my political blog.

Joseph Gonzales of BatangBaler gave a witty and sleep-removing talk on his experiences in setting up a community blog for Baler. His idea is good. He may not be popular in the whole country but he is a celebrity in Baler. His talk made me think of setting up a community blog for Montalban.

Marghil Macuha talked about SEO, which added the information I already had about the topic. My seatmate commented that Macuha’s techniques on SEO borders on spamming. That may be possible, but still, his ideas work.

iBlog6 is also a great venue for networking and meeting friends that are bloggers. I have met some internet marketers and also learned good tips from them. I have also met bloggers like Diana Chan (who have a private blog) and Chris, who is planning to set-up a blog that contains book reviews.

I have also met JM, Joy and her sister Pam. Benedict and his group are my pals in the event and they are a group of internet marketers.

Yesterday is also my lucky day. I won in the raffle and got a white iBlog6 T-shirt.

iBlog6 is an excellent event. I am glad to have attended in the event. I had learned many things and met other blogger. I will join iBlog7 if there will be one next year.
