My First Wordcamp!

Saturday, September 19, 2009

This was my first to attend Wordcamp Philippines 2009 with Cherry, Chiq Montes, Janlac and Magman today. We were actually delayed when we arrive since we woke-up already late, and the driver doesn't know where Asian Institute Management- Wordcamp venue is located. Good thing when we arrived the program haven't started and we were able to register and meet some of the soon to be speaker (Lyle Santos) and emcee (Migs Hipolito) of Mindanao Bloggers Summit 3. The event was all in all fun and exciting. We get to meet fellow bloggers and get to learn useful tips in using Wordpress, blogging, citizen journalism, and updates of Firefox.

By the way, I will share the program of the event so you will have some overview of the who and what in Wordcamp 2009. (lols)

There were also games that we got to joined and I even won a Wordpress t-shirt! It was fun and yet tiring since its a whole day conference but I really learned a lot.

After Wordcamp we went to Greenbelt and stroll around. However Chiq Montes didn't accompany us since she still had a meeting with PBA organizers. It was also nice meeting fellow plurkers Crixxie and Evanne who are kind enough to gave us a ride back to Kabayan Hotel.
Thats it folks! Ill sleep now and looking forward for another bloggable activities tomorrow.
