From being just an online journal, blogging has evolved to being a massive communication and marketing tool used by writers, enthusiasts, professionals, and even the media to reach a wider scope of audience through the world wide web.
Here in the Philippines, blogging has also already being tapped and utilized to help, not just individuals, but also brands and advocacies in creating an image and delivering their messages more effectively; and so St. Paul University Manila organizes Blog O’ Speak: The First Manila Blog Convention on July 25, 2015 at the St. Paul University Manila Campus in Malate, Manila to educate and introduce blogging, not just to students, but to everyone who would like to start their own blog.
The event is the first of its kind in Manila. It intends to bring together bloggers from Manila to talk about relevant topics in blogging. Because blogging has become one of the persuasive tools applied in marketing, advocacy, and literature, we have decided to underscore its value by organizing it. It also puts to the foreground the centrality of Manila as a seat of blogging in the country and the rest of the Southeast Asian region. Speakers include media practitioners like Inday Espina-Varona (ABS-CBN), Kai Magsanoc (goodvibes.com), Ime Morales (Freelance Writers Guild of the Philippines), Lito Virina (advertising practitioner and faculty), Gellie Abogado, Sai Montes, Sumi Go, and Kaycee Enerva (bloggers).
This is a not-for-profit event. Registration donation fees (minimum of P100.00) goes to venue cost, and earnings in excess will go to Aeta communities in Bagac, Bataan and Botolan, Zambales, and the H.O.P.E. Ablaze Program of St. Paul University Manila.
