PINOY THAIYO'S BLOGGING/WRITING & SEO WORKSHOP

It's nice to be surrounded with people who share the same interest and passion as you do. Blogging? That's correct. You start a conversation by asking couple of questions and, without much realizing, you earn friends. That exactly what happened on Sunday January 25, 2014 at Suan Sunandha Rajabaht University in Bangkok.  


The creative writing workshop conducted by Mr. Percy Roxas, editor-in-chief of LOOKEAST MAGAZINE, as well as Carl Heaton's (the guy behind Web Courses Bangkok) blogging tips on how to put a blog on top of Google, became a tool for me to get to know people who love to pen down their emotions either through a poem, blog post, and other stuff they find worth writing. Not only did I get the chance to meet these brilliant minds, I was also able to be friends with some of them, and left a promise that help in blogging will arrive come the time of asking. I am not an expert, but I know a bit more compared to others who are just starting to have their works be seen around the world. Naks!


Anyhow, I hope that there will be more workshops such as this. Honestly, I learned a lot from the speakers. I learned something from the other aspiring bloggers/writers as well. 


Thanks to Jezreel Llanera and to the people behind the workshop. Without you guys, this event wouldn't be made possible

PS: Although I don't categorize blogging under the "passion" level yet, I have a feeling I'll get there soon enough. Wink.

This is a very useful workshop! However, as I kind of dislike networking, I will rather skip these kind of events even though they may be very useful....

What a fantastic workshop! We have events similar and also much larger - proper blogging conferences in the UK. I have made some amazing friends in my time as a blogger and definitely find it a passion! Sim @ simslife.co.uk

Hmmm, I somehow envy those who were able to attend. I am not yet connected with a local blogger society. And sometimes, I just wanted to connect with people who also do the same thing I am doing, "blogging". I hope I could get connected with our local bloggers' community. Soon. :-)

Being on workshops is great way to learn new stuff as well as interact with people and expand your network. I'm sure this would make your writing even better.

I'm glad you enjoyed this very well organized and informative workshop. Blogging can become all-consuming so it helps to break the monotony.
