First of all, I like to thank Ms. Janette Toral for inviting me once more to have my solo talk in this years’ iBlog 10: Philippine Blogging Summit, I just can’t believe that the summit is already 10 years old, and it still continue to host a free learning center for bloggers every year, I’m already blogging for 11 years and I say that every blogger should check out and attend this summit every year, there are lots of changes and new trends in blogging, in this summit, you will learn the how to, the do’s and also don’ts. You can also approach and engage with the blogger you follow, the twitter personality you tweet with or a fellow Facebook person you just friended.
My 1st iBlog to attend was the 1st ever iBlog, I’m a super newbie for a 2 year older blogger, then after a few years, Janette invited me to have a talk about video blogging in partner with Kring who works with Flippish in the past and also got his own blog and video blog about her Korean boyfriend.
This year, Janette offered a challenge to me to do solo talk hahaha, I’m glad that I’m no longer nervous and I just read my script in order to have a clear message to my audience, but it works perfectly fine and I didn’t expected that my talk passed already the 15 minute time limit. My talk for this year is to share my experience and also the success of building communities through blogging. I have lots of communities that I organized in the past, that’s why I’m a bit confident to share some tips and story how online communities can help your blog.
You can read my slides and notes in my blog here at - my iBlog 10 slide presentation about “Building communities through blogging”

during the forum, we didn’t expected that many will ask more questions about online communities, we ran out of time but we accommodated the last 3 with one questions only.
Vibal publishing, as one of the sponsors of the event, shared to us their ebooks and Viber reader app
