I have not seen so many bloggers in one location until I attended the BlogFest SOCCSKSARGEN 2010 last December 11 in East Asia Royale Hotel in Gensan. And even though I could not remember my first blogpost, I could still remember why I decided to have one. It was therapeutic for me. It helps me stay put and it kills idle time. Needless to say, I blogged about — ME ME ME. But now my concept of blogging has developed into something bigger than I. And its not only me who is realizing this.
Blogs nowadays do not only contain the author’s emo moments. It now speaks of technology, tourism, politics, entertainment and more. Blogs have morphed from personal to business. And why not? Blogs create good networks and thus creates more opportunities. It can even get you a job or make self-employment easier.
It is apparent that across the globe, being online has been a part of many people’s lives. We have managed to merge our daily lives with our online personas. We engage in blog-like activities like status updates in our social networking pages and we post photos to share for our online community to see. We get news online, and sometimes, the internet is faster in delivering tidbits of what’s happened than the media. Communication has never been so easy and fast…sometimes, it beats real time.
