  1. Peter says:

    That’s great! I hope to attend this year’s summit. Missed last year due to work. :)

    Oh and send me over details on the sponsorship, I’ll see what I can do, thanks!

  2. Thank you Peter for the interest. Please expect me to email you about the package. See you on April 18!

  3. SubicBayBlog says:

    sure hope to make it . . . keep it up :-)

  4. Hi! I am hoping that I can attend the summit.
    I am interested in the topic:Legal
    Blogging Panel and Blogging as a Tool in Teaching.

  5. Hi Antonate. That will be great. See you on April 18!

  6. Che Ingles says:

    Hi! I am interested in joining your summit (I am actually even planning to skip work for this). I am no professional blogger, but I do post a lot on my personal site.

    Is this summit free for all? Do I have to register somewhere?

    Hope to hear from you! Thank you!

  7. Jonee says:

    Hi Miss Che!

    The registration page is in here


    and yes the blogging summit is absolutely free so be there a little early!

  8. Carla says:

    Hi. Could you please tell me where I can get the summit’s transcripts/documentation afterwards? I’m interested in the political blogging track in particular (my research is on this). Thanks very much.

  9. cyrus says:

    Hi! I’m also interested in joining the summit, although i’m a complete newbie — no blogs, no personal site, nada.

    I do want to learn and maybe setup a blog before this June.

  10. Hi Cyrus. Just register and feel free to attend the summit.

    Carla, what will be posted is the podcast of the event that you can download and listen to from there.

  11. LaNzCe says:

    I’m wondering if there’s an age limit for attendees? I mean, i feel like most of the attendees would be people around their 20s to 30s, and I’m just 16. >

  12. vonjobi says:


    you’re very welcome. one reason it’s held during summer is so that students can attend. last year, i believe there was someone younger than you.

  13. jangelo says:

    Carla, we’ll be documenting the event via podcast/audioblog. :)

  14. Maria Jose says:

    HI! I hope you can have another blogging summit next year (or sooner) to be held somewhere else in the country. I’m sure a lot fo bloggers from Visayas and Mindanao are interested to join but do not have the resources to go to Manila. I’m from Davao by the way.
