Back from BlogCon 2006

Wow, what a trip! (as if it was really that far away)

Thanks to everyone who came and spread the link love. I hope everyone enjoyed the evening as well as the short presentations given by the guest speakers. Thank you Globe Innove for the sponsorship!

I want to apologize for two things though.

First, the “autograph signing” thing was actually supposed to be similar to the barnyard shoepile game where we have a list of all the blogs and people match the bloggers with their respective URLs.

Second, the podcast we recorded is corrupt. Something unknown to my geeky powers corrupted the audio file as it was being compressed in GarageBand. The file is lost forever! How tragic. How irresponsible. So so sorry about that.

There were some people I really wanted to talk to (especially the famous Jac Ting Lim!) but everyone was, as we all experienced, overwhelmed with the first meetup. I think we have plans of doing this every quarter so expect a Blogger Kris Kringle this Christmas.

I will be posting pictures soon (actually check out Rico’s blog because he downloaded all of my pictures into his computer…). In the meantime ….

Thanks for the pics Jayvs, and for organizing the whole thing with Abe and Innove. I must say, you and Elber really make me wanna get a camera, haha! 😀

Bakit walang mention nung current love interest mo sa entry mo? 😉

Bimbo, mas madali gumawa ng bagong site na mataas ang PR kesa sa magpataas ng PR ng lumang site. 😉

i didn’t get to comment here? i thought i’ve covered all the post blogcon bases.

Twas nice meeting you Jayvee, though we didn’t get to chit chat that night. Some other venuie perhaps.

BTW, I recently met Nikki (A Day in the Life of a Paper Clip – Cloudwoman) who says you are convincing her to go pro. I think she should too.

[…] So Shel goes to Europe and one day maybe Asia, specifically the Philippines. Shel, if you’re reading this here are some reasons why the Philippines is worth visiting (apart from the fact that we are an Asian tourist hub and several b5ers reside here): The Philippine blogosphere is booming, with local bloggers finally touching base with one another, the Philippine blogosphere is slowly bridging gaps because the blogger community is no longer just Internet-based but very participative in meet and greets.
