These are the type of events that I’d love to attend and be a part of, but unfortunately I can’t because I’m not in the Philippines. All I can do is support these events and help promote them. If you’d like to be a sponsor of iBlog6, please check out the Sponsorship Packages.
Anyone planning or are sure to attend iBlog6: The 6th Philippine Blogging Summit? Are you going to attend both day 1 and 2? Which topics/speakers are you looking forward to hear?
i sure will be there at iBlog6! See you there :)
@elmot – Yes, this year’s iBlog will be 2 days and based on the list of topics/speakers, its gonna better than previous events.
Did you attend last year’s iBlog? If you have time, you should attend it. If I was only in the Philippines, I’d attend all blogging events. Hehe
Wow! This year it is already a two-day activity…mas oks to this time around.
Hope to be there :D
@Janette – You’re welcome Ms Janette! Please let me know if you have any other upcoming blogging events so I can blog about it here.
