Blogopolis 2013: #IntoTheWild

Blogopolis 2012: ONLIne in the Philippines

Last year’s Blogopolis focused on engaging and educating the bloggers of the ever-growing Filipino blogosphere. The conference covered topics related to blogging and its four pillars - content, marketing, monetization and advocacy. It served as an introduction to the blogging industry with the goal of helping our community further their blogging skill set and knowledge.
