photo coverage: Scenes from #iblog7 : Philippine Blogging Summit 2011


With my busy schedule, I got a time to attend the day 1 session of iBlog 7: Philippine Blogging Summit 2011 in Malcolm Theater in College of Law, U.P. Diliman. I went there to take photo coverage of the event and also listened to the speakers about blogging, I did miss the most highlighted part which is the forum about the proposal for a Philippine Bloggers Association.

check out the photos below

I arrived late at around 11am and I thought that I missed Earth’s panel talk on stage, after I arrive in the hall, I sat infront and started to listen and record all the talks and forum in my Flip Camera. Earth’s topic that day is about “Blogging with Integrity” , her talk and slides are now uploaded at - Complete Text & Slides Of My iBLog7 Talk Topic: Blogger Etiquette

Carlo Ople gave a talk about “10 power tips in blogging”, and wow! I learned a lot from him, especially that I need to use and learn Powerpoint hahaha. I’m so lazy in using Powerpoint, I’m more comfortable in making my slides in Photoshop and here from his talk, Powerpoint is a must! Learned from him about push and pull of content using social media buttons in blogs and got me inspired to fix our FB page using a nice layout of FBML. His examples like TV5 Fanpage, blog and his blog is very helpful for sharing, also at the forum corner, I like what he said “Walang basagan ng trip!”  ahaaha. astig!
Topic of his talk is now uploaded  - 10 Power Blogging Tips (iBlog 7 Presentation)

Tall and sexy Samsung models are preparing to lure us with the Samsung Galaxy Tab, they roam around the venue and show how the tablet works. Here’s Fitz Villafuerte wearning his custom made shirt “Pinoy Blogger” with a background of lots of keyword clouds, and also his partner Don doing another photo bomb hahaha.

Met some bloggers here, all of them are busy listening to the talk of the speakers on stage, some of them are live tweeting, live blogging, and live Facebooking.  Janette Toral is like our captain in a big ship, as she navigates and control the program proper of the iBlog 7 for us.

Before my camera runs out of juice, I took a quick photo shoot inside with the audience and speakers,  I left the venue after Howie’s talk, I need to teleport myself to Makati in 30 minutes and I can’t believe that I made it on time for my meeting there. Howie is a great speaker for that day as journalist blogger.
