The Iligan Bloggers Society (IBS), through its Executive Director Charmaine Xy-za O. Yape, officially released a statement that it will host the Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2011 (MBS5) on October 29-30, 2011.
After detailed planning and numerous meetings, IBS Core Group voted to use the theme “One Green Mindanao: Mobilizing Bloggers to Promote Sustainable Lifestyle”. The year’s summit will not only be a venue to converge Mindanao-based bloggers but also discuss issues on environment and to help formulate a better Mindanao through the promotion and the adaptation of a sustainable lifestyle.
“With the prevalent issues on climate change, the Summit aims to promote natural balance and respect for the human symbiotic relationship with the Earth”, Ms. Yape stated. She also wishes to invite all bloggers who are interested to attend the event and experience the vibrant Mindanao blogging community, and to share ideas and explore the potential impact of blogging and sustainable lifestyle.
MBS5 will have a pre-event activity Blogging 101 Seminar on September 22, 2011. Among the topics to be discussed are the basics of blogging, web designing, online article writing and photography for the blogging enthusiasts and newbie bloggers.
