#iBlog9 : the 9th Philippine Blogging Summit

iBlog 9

iBlog 9

I was planning to make an announcement post about iBlog 9. But I guess it’s too late since iBlog9 will start in about 6 hours. :) It will be held at the Malcolm Theater, UP College of Law, UP Diliman, Quezon City from 8 am to 5 pm for two days (May 31 & June 1).

So before I sleep, I decided to make this personal post instead.

I have already been a speaker in a previous iBlog, last year or the year before that, so I’m glad to be back. I also hope to wake up early as I will be the first speaker and I’m talking about “Understanding the Blogger Psyche.”

Understanding the Blogger Psyche

It’s simply a sharing of my personal observations and  general analysis of Filipino bloggers’ characters and pysche from my five years of experiences and interactions in the Philippine blogging industry. I am no expert and have no degree in psychology so most of my examples and derivations are from actual experiences.

As my blog readers and subscribers, here’s an advance dibs on what I’m presenting later on.

Prizes for Questions

Please do tweet us with the hashtag #BloggerCircleS (in addition to #iBlog9) as I promote my newest baby – BloggerCircles.com. Right after my presentation which is about 9:40am, I will select 2 to 4 questions from Twitter with those hashtags and they will be given a small gift pack courtesy of @BloggerCircleS on Twitter.

You may also upload any of your photos in Facebook. Tag the Blogger Circles Facebook Page and I will choose one photo towards the end of the day at about 4pm. He/She will receive a Starbucks gift certificate. The winning entry will be messaged (or I will comment in the photo indicating he/she is the winner).
