Last Saturday, I went to Philippine Science High School for the first Bloggers’ Kapihan event organized by my co-bloggers Jhay, Mong, Sarah, Shari, Sir Martin and Vencer. It all started one Saturday morning in August when we conceived the plan for a forum on blogging. Somehow, it became part of the plan for me to speak and talk about student blogging to high school students.
Up until the day before the event, I didn’t know what to say. I’ve been blogging for almost seven years without consciously following any set of tips nor rules, and I didn’t know what new idea to impart to high school students. I never thought of myself as a resource speaker on blogging. My having a blog for almost seven years is only an incidental function of having the privilege of having a computer with an internet connection at 12 years old, seven years ago, and having enough time and personal experiences to share, and not really because I actively pursued this “pioneer blogger” status. Hehe.
After briefly talking about how I started blogging, I eventually gave out a handful of random tips to the audience with a crammed PowerPoint presentation to boot. I’ll write about it in another entry, though, when I have enough time. As you can see, I haven’t blogged for a week now because of the heap of academic and extra-curricular school work I’ve been attending to.
