iBlog10: FREE 10th Philippine Blogging Summit in Manila 2014

Screenshot from
As a blogger for 4 years and counting, the annual Philippine Blogging Summit is one big event I always look forward. Not just because I get to meet a lot of fellow bloggers but I get a lot of tremendous inspirations from speakers about their advocacy and success stories! 

My first two years in the blogosphere was the hardest because I did not know where I am heading. I reached the point when I seriously want to know if blog posts can take me to somewhere I want. Luckily after years of immersing myself to the blogosphere, It was all worth it!

Now on its 10th year, this is a decade long that is really worthy of a celebration. I heard they will get the best speakers they had for the past 10 years! Wanna share this to anyone who is thinking of having a "career" or life to blogging. This is a free two day event. I will only be joining the first day, as the second day I have to join another very valuable mentoring event to make sure I get the right exposure I need for living a location - independent style and entrepreneur in one.
