#iBlog12 — September 16, 2016

Ken Chan talks about GMA Network’s latest online awareness campaign #HeartOverHate.

Five years ago, I went to my first iBlog (the 7th Philippine Blogging Summit) at the Malcolm Theater of UP Diliman College of Law. A year after, I went on to speak in the perspective of a content creator, emphasizing the uniqueness of one’s content.

iBlog: The 14th Philippine Blogging Summit #iblog14

iBlog: The 12th Philippine Blogging Summit (#iblog12) will be on September 16, 2016 at the Malcolm Theater, UP College of Law, UP Diliman, Quezon City from 8 am to 5 pm. Our theme this year is on “Data Privacy, Cybercrime, Libel, and Legal Concerns: Its Impact on Bloggers, New Media Publishers, and Social Media Users”.

Three years — and lots of t-shirts — later, I’m still here. I’ve officially made this a tradition of mine.

Unlike the rest of the iBlogs I’ve attended, this year’s program topics are not community-sourced, and it’s only held for one day. This is a good thing, as it does itself a fresh start anew.

On a sidenote, one thing I regret in attending this year’s Summit is to bring my laptop to jot down notes— turns out that I don’t need to bring it, and it also distracts me from focusing on the topic. Lesson learned.

The tradition will live on and I will see everyone in the next year’s summit. Thanks Janette Toral and Atty. JJ Disini for this year’s iBlog!
