Love iBlog 2

Great learning, great networking at iBlog 2.

I was fascinated by ways where I can use all these freebie tools such as blog metrics, RSS, Word Press.  And the people–kindred spirits, they are! The blog community is a community of practitioners, so passionate about blogging. Real wisdom from the sages and the A-listers.

Here are my striking words from this Summit :

Mike Abundo of Information Narcosis–Shameless self-promotion, purple cows, shishkebabs, Flicker, tags; Word Press? "I'm tempted".

Dean Alfar on Creative Writing Blogging time frame–Remember the past, write today, and do NOTE fear tomorrow (Dean, kudos.  You just showed us that a Palanca Award Winner can write a book of 50k words in 30 days, using the blog and this method)

And again from Dean: "How can you grow as a writer if you play in the sandbox of another writer's imagination?"

Zarah Gagatiga of Love a Librarian–51.5% of bloggers are 13-19 years old; information literacy; using blog activities for classroom teaching and learning


  • Abe O. of Yugatech –Google Ad Sense; highest revenue by a Pinoy problogger–P  85,000/month PER BLOG for independent bloggers ; Blog work–1 to 2 hours/ day, 2 posts per blog
  • J. Angelo Racoma  of Forever Geek: Blogging can help you find a job, expand your horizons; your blog is your online portfolio. Problogging is just like any career, you can move companies and you can even get pirated.
  • Charo Nuguid of the Geekette SpeakethMetrics, metrics, metrics. Blog viewers are more active on Tuesdays, least active on Saturdays. They read in the morning and clickety-click at night.  Internet marketing on Orange and Bronze.
  • Marc Macalua of SEO Philippines— marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), keywords, keywurds, keywrds
  • Manuel Viloria–self-regulation in blog posts

Met fellow blog enthusiasts: Manuel Viloria, Adrian Sison, Gladys, Jerry Polence, Melvz, Janette Toral, Leo

Missed: All about podcasting. But thanks to Charo N. for the e-mail advice on what this is, and how to do it.

Let's keep the conversation going.  Looking forward to iBlog3!
