Mindanao Bloggers Summit: Success!


It’s been two days since the Usual Suspects successfully held the 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit here in Davao City. Due to time constraints, I wasn’t able to report on the event immediately. But of course, knowing bloggers, there isn’t a shortage of blog posts regarding the summit. Check out Jun’s rundown.

Thanks to all the speakers, namely Bob Martin, Fr. Allejo, Kim Castillo, Jayvee Fernandez, Marc Macalua and Abe Olandres.

Shoutout to the Usual SuspectsBlogie for leading the battalion, Ria for feeding the soldiers, Dom for the gear, Jun for logistics, Kim for registration and tags, Migs for the hosting, Winston for manning the projector (meh, so did I) and Peter for the guidance.

Holler out to Jenny (the one with the secret LJ blog — how can I link to you? — Update: Link updated!), Charles (the photographer), Richard, Aethen and Mikko. I’m sure I forgot a couple others that I met for the first time. Sorry! But please refresh my memory so I can link back to you.

Some goofy moments from the summit:
