Last year’s Blogopolis (ONLIne in the PHilippines) focused on engaging and educating the bloggers of the ever-growing Filipino blogosphere. The conference covered topics related to blogging and its four pillars – content, marketing, monetization and advocacy. It served as an introduction to the blogging industry with the goal of helping our community further their blogging skill set and knowledge.
I wasn’t able to attend last year’s Blogopolis because I had just then given birth to my lil’ Mr. GJG. Luckily, this year, I’ll be able to. If you’re into blogging and would really want to learn more on how it works then this year’s Blogopolis is perfect for you.
