Pinay Mommy Online on the Recently Concluded iBlog7

When the schedule for iBlog7 was announced, I got so excited that I immediately went to an airline website to book a flight and I think my lucky stars were with me then because I was able to get a promo fare!!

When April 1, 2011 came, I hurried myself to Bacolod-Silay International Airport and after a few hours later… I was already at the doorways of Malcolm Hall, UP Diliman, Quezon City. The first bloggers I met was fellow mommy bloggers from Pinay Mommies Community. They were all fun and accommodating.

As the first day of iBlog7 progressed, I was able to hear many great speakers talk about different things. One of the most memorable talks for me was about the 10 Power Blogging Tips by Carlo Ople. He discussed the following in the most profound and lively manner:

1. Maximize your best “SEO’d” blog entries
2. Social Media is not just putting a “Share Button”.
3. Be Relevant
4. Don’t think small.
5. Learn PowerPoint.
6. Build Content Partnerships
7. Go for Direct Advertisers
8. Don’t just rely on Advertising.
9. Become Better Writers
10. Care.

On the second day, the talk by Roy dela Cruz on Writer’s Block was one of the most lively and entertaining discussion. He gave a truthful perspective on the reasons why bloggers or writers have writer’s block and how to deal with it. Fitz Villafuerte also shared practical things on how to create blog traffic without SEO.

Another talk on the second day was given by my kumare Ria Tirazona. She gave her presentation on Blogging, Social Networks, Online Relationships as Support System. Not that because she is one of the godmother of my daughter Bella Grace but in fairness she was great and her talk has content, humor and warmth!

As the two-day summit came to a close, I was so happy and sad at the same time. My first iBlog experience was a blast and very educating. I learned a lot about many things that can surely help my blogging career more productive. Aside from that, I met a lot of bloggers that I never knew I would see face to face!!

To the organizers of iblog, Ms. Janet Torral and her staff, thank you very much for bringing this event to us bloggers. You made blogging in the Philippines more exciting and educational as ever!

My conclusion on IBlog7, all the best things in life are indeed FREE!! For iBlog8, I am already looking forward to it!!
