Bloggers Congress 2

Read about the first Bloggers Congress here.

Following the success of the first Bloggers Congress comes the second wave of Manila’s top bloggers who are ready to share their blogging tips, secrets, and success stories to aspiring fellow bloggers and non-bloggers alike.

Rob is an illustrator who is well known for his uncannily funny comic strips over Tumblrverse. He shared how he started his blog from part-time illustrating while studying Accounting at the Ateneo to how he was able to snag a job in the design world through his blog. He is also a designer for Punchdrunk Panda!

Mercato’s brainparent Anton is an entrepreneur and a food-travel blogger who quit his high-paying job in P&G to venture out full-time in blogging. He started blogging about his family and called this as a love letter to his children. Now he blogs about his food finds, the finest restaurants in the metro, and the Philippines’ hidden travel treasures alongside managing and taste-testing for the Mercato.

Camille is such a doll! She always looks nice and is really tall and pretty. She shared her blogging roots and the steps she had to take when she put up a blog – from choosing a platform to buying a domain name to posting everyday. She dissected her blog to show how us the parts of her blog. I like how she really hastened the pace of her talk and how concise she structured it.

Saab, you all know Saab (go to my tag!) She came in without a presentation, but it’s really funny how she pulled it off. She shared a lot of her blogging stories – how she was this angsty high school goth girl who hates the world and her celebrity life, how she deals with haters, and how she juggles her time from being a contract artist for GMA7 and her freelance blogging. OH! She also gave away South Park headphones!!! Anyhoo, Her impromptu speech is such an appropriate ending to this learning experience!
