By sunset, I still have not started with my presentation for the talk. I needed a break from work, and for wandering thoughts, and a call from J was a comfort. But near sundown, my presentation was progressing like the darkness that envelopes the fading light.

More than the traveling, and penning the experience down in this virtual capsule of memories, microblogging with the use of social media networks has been helpful for me in sharing travel moments. But social media network, and it’s dynamics is useful not just in travel blogging, online businesses, or on making a living when managing accounts for clients — but also for other cause beyond ourselves.
It took me a month to actually blog about what happened in full confidence that I will be able to finish and publish it. It has been hard to write about the destruction of Iligan when Pinay Travelista was inspired by the roads and adventures of this city. I have more than a few drafts about the Sendong but it was too depressing to have it published. Gwapito did say that, “not all blog posts are happy posts”, and that it is okay even if it was and is depressing. But I could not find it in me to inject depression on people who already feels distress over the matter. All I could do was to continue on through the campaign ran by Iligan Bloggers Society, Inc that started at the very same day a month ago. One For Iligan started as out as a call for One Dollar for the Victims of Sendong in Iligan City. Social media and networking proved to be undauntingly supportive, after all this is their bread and butter — and it did not fail.

..is the greeting we received as we arrived at General Santos City after cramming up and tying the loose ends after closing the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2011 organized by Iligan Bloggers Society, Inc. With some of the Iligan Bloggers and I, were up for a trip down south to participate and in full support for the Soccsksargen Bloggers for the Soccsksargen Blogfest 2.0 and the Philippine Blog Awards 2011.
I, for one, wanted to experience how it is for the Sox bloggers to host an event — with these, by the way, the funniest and most entertaining blogging society and we were in it for a treat!

It’s always great to be connected with family, friends, and work even when you’re out having fun! You get to share your travels. To top it off, you get to have freebies and some discounts from Globe and/or their services.
When Globe finalized their co-presenting the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2011 on October 29-30, 2011 at Iligan City — my heart just skipped a beat! The Globe’s presence in this summit proves that they not only hold the reign in mobile communication but has also entered in the mobile internet to keep you updated in your social media networks. That means you get to go online on your mobile, anywhere, anytime — where you see fit!
Globe has been generous enough to not only help Iligan Bloggers Society realize this event, but they want to extend their generousity to the participants of the 5th Mindanao Bloggers Summit by covering the registration fees! For a blogger, you get to travel a lot — for fun and passion for it, and sometimes, for seminars and summit to upgrade your knowledge and circulate in the blogosphere. Treats like this are too sweet to let pass.
If you’re joining to become a participant, register now, or for those who are interested to sponsor, contact Iligan Bloggers Society, and don’t miss out on this chance.
