Davao Bloggers, the official blogging organization of the Davao region, announces Blog Weekend Bootcamp, an intensive 3-day blogging workshop. The workshop is scheduled on September 21-23, 2012, at Malagos Garden Resort, Calinan, Davao city.
This stay-in workshop will include 2 full days of lectures, forums and exercises and will be punctuated with a socials night on its final day. If you want to be a blogger and make the most out of what could be a very lucrative career, then this workshop is truly the right place to go. In fact, I kind of feel sorry for myself that I started out without these kinds of events.

“It’s more than just one-of-a-kind, it’s truly the first of it’s kind here in Davao city. We wanted to raise the bar of blogging—in terms of content, ethics and maybe even monetization—in this side of the country. Did you know that Davao Bloggers was the first organized association of bloggers in the country? We felt that it’s time to launch a truly meaningful and educational event especially now that our members are growing exponentially….and the appreciation for blogging has now approached mainstream consciousness.” This is a statement by Dulce Rose Lada, President of the Davao Bloggers. Ms. Lada, along with the other Davao Bloggers officers, is spearheading the event planning and coordination of the Blog Weekend Bootcamp.
