In a week's time, bloggers in Cebu and maybe even across the country will be converging at the Cebu Blog Camp 2011 and I am thrilled as I count the days to the event. Here's my take on why I am excited to be one of the happy blogging campers.
5. The Emily Post in Blogging
In the past three years or so, we've seen the blog as a new form of media, and bloggers have utilized this platform either as an avenue of expression, a source of information or for profit. With the changing media landscape and all that buzz about the big bad blogger, it is high time for the blogging community to display some sense of decorum not just in media events but in carrying out day-to-day activities.
4. Beyond Food Drooling
I love to eat, no doubt. What's not to love about food? I always look forward to satiating my appetite whether it be in a hole-in-the-wall, a carinderia in the next bend or in a ritzy restaurant. It will be definitely a treat to know the fundamentals in food preparation, tasting and reviews so that the next time I share my gastronomic discoveries, it will be peppered not just by sensory delights but also techniques which I hope to learn from this camp.
3. Freezing Time
I have been documenting events (especially travel and work) and capturing moments that closely describe what I feel. I never had any formal training on photography; just aided by books and experimenting with my camera so I look forward to honing my skills by a photography expert even for just a short period of time.
2. Make Footprints, Share Trails
I've been traveling ever since I learned how to walk on my own, thanks to my parents, my schools, my job and of course, my passion for learning new things, immersing in different cultures and seeing the world in a different light. I may have explored cities and towns in the Philippines and across the globe, whether on my own or with a group, but I know that there is so much for me to learn and discover in the travel landscape. Plus, the event will also be an avenue for me to share my travel experiences with the rest of the campers.
1. There is always a First Time.
I've been to a girl scout camp, several science camps and quite a number of leadership camps but this is my first time to be in a blog camp. I don't know how the camp will go but one thing's for sure, my first blog camp will be the Cebu Blog Camp (fingers crossed!). I am ticking off the days to the big event (with an open mind and heart), looking forward to learning new things from the experts in the blogging community and excited to meet fellow bloggers, too.
The Cebu Blog Camp is an event organized annually by the
Cebu Bloggers of the Blog and Soul Movement which is the
educating leg of the Philippine Blog Awards Inc. which has
been running for already four years. This is the largest
gathering of bloggers in Cebu.
