Called as the “Magic 6,” the top 6 contenders of Blogger Manila‘s “Search for the Blogger Apprentice” was named last August 19,2011.

From the 14 blogger apprentice applicants, the candidates were trimmed down to six since the Blogger Apprentice program was launched more than two months ago. The applicants got assignments based on blogger event opportunities, their preferences, and availability. Although those who applied early naturally got more opportunities to write and blog, more than half of them got the chance to get at least one assignment each.

The applicants’ answers in the registration form’s interview questions and blogger traits/character were also considered in the selection. We had to decline some applicants from the Visayas however. This is due to the nature of the search which demands physical availability in meetings and blogger events. Hopefully we can consider this in future programs.

The Blogger Apprentice Meeting was also a learning session for the new bloggers as there were discussions regarding blogging techniques and general questions
