Cebu Blogging Summit 2014

Cebu Blogging Summit 2014
September 27, 2014 - I was speaking at the second Cebu Blogging Summit held at University of San Jose - Recoletos (USJR) Basak Campus in front of bloggers, want to be bloggers and students. It was my second time as a speaker in my entire life and I was really nervous about it.

The Social Good Summit Cebu was held in the morning, which is a great way to help bloggers decide and motivate them why they should blog, what should they blog about, and why they should keep on doing, sharing and posting something good. Which was for me, a very helpful and educating even I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years now.

Other than being a speaker for that day, I was also one of the organizers of the event along with the fellow Cebu Blogging Community members. I was also supposed to be the host of the event, but because I was too shy and that I was not provided with the information about the speakers and that I don’t know them (or at least meet yet), I don’t have any idea how to introduce them to the crowd of 100 people.

Using Blogs for Social Good
Speaker: Mike Acebedo Lopez

We also let the audience tweet us their questions about our topics since we can’t entertain everyone’s question during the open forum. And surely, some may be hesitant and too shy to stand up and ask the questions. So it was a pretty good idea since we do get a lot of tweets and friend requests, they’re not all questions but there are also some who are really kind and sweet to send their big thanks for organizing an event like this.

For those who were not able to come due to some priorities, no worries. We have lots of events coming in and many plans and meet ups that we’d love to have you come.
