“It’s more than just one-of-a-kind, it’s truly the first of it’s kind here in Davao city. We wanted to raise the bar of blogging—in terms of content, ethics and maybe even monetization—in this side of the country. We felt that it’s time to launch a truly meaningful and educational event especially now that our members are growing exponentially… and the appreciation for blogging has now approached mainstream consciousness.” This is a statement by Dulce Rose Lada, President of the Davao Bloggers. Ms. Lada, along with the other Davao Bloggers officers, is spearheading the event planning and coordination of the Blog Weekend Bootcamp.
On top of the blogging workshop, there will also be an exchange of ideas during Social Good Summit Meetup, as part of the global conversation happening simultaneously around the globe.
This event is made possible by the support of the U.S. Embassy Manila and our sponsors: Smart Communications, Malagos Garden Resort, Sulit.com.ph, Abreeza Mall, San Miguel Brewery, Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc., Crea8Tech Solutions and Kaiser Webs Solutions.
