The Computer Science and Information Department Student Council of Notre Dame of Marbel University headed by Aethen is conducting a seminar on blogging on February 2, 2003.
Aethen says that it will be like a re-echo of the Mindanao Bloggers Summit. It is tentatively called Blogging Basics and has the following objectives:
To introduce blogging as new media
To explore blogging as a means for monetizing, Internet marketing, and advocacy.
To enable the participants to recognize the need to continually communicate with one another to know and understand Mindanao and its people through the available technology.
To utilize blogging to appreciate the beauty of Mindanao’s people, culture, places, creativity as their contribution to fostering understanding and peace on the island.
I was invited to introduce blogging to non-bloggers. So, I have to paint an appealing picture of blogging to entice them to try this new medium of self-expression, information dissemination, and marketing.
BrVince, Rolly Jude, Ria Jose would also be there to share their knowledge of and experiences with blogging.
It is supported by Google Philippines, Jehzlau Concepts, and Matchbox Cafe.
I hope the objectives of the seminar will really be attained.
