Break from Online Work: Blogging 101 Workshop Muna

Two weekends ago, specifically, May 19, 2012,  I joined a Blogging 101 workshop organized by the Cagayan de Oro Bloggers Inc., at MBox Business Center, Cruz Taal St. Cagayan de Oro City, and  I was really glad to have joined it because I actually learned so many tips and techniques from the discussions and sharing of the resource speakers as well as some of the participants. 

We had two vibrant speakers, Grace Maghanoy of and Venus Mabale of, who gave us not only their knowledge, but encouragements as well. 

And the members and officers of CDO Bloggers Inc., were there, in full force, so that the participants have more than enough help especially during the hands-on. Although I have already learned a few things about blogging, it was truly helpful for me to know more and reacquaint myself with terminologies that I have forgotten. Seriously, I forget things, lol..

Anyway, here's us, minus some participants who went home earlier..

Oh and before I forget, I would like to say that paying P 200 for this Blogging 101 workshop is truly worth the amount. Every participant left with new knowledge, gained friends and took home the wonderful freebies/giveaways; USB hubs from SUN Cellular and stickers and key-chains from

Plus a chance to win 1 year free hosting, courtesy of, and 1 year free domain registration courtesy of, who are also sponsors for this activity through a blogging contest where the participants have to blog about the CDO Bloggers Blogging 101 Workshop. This post, by the way, is my entry, and I deserve to win because I can make use of the free domain and hosting to prove to everyone that there is indeed money in blogging. In that way, many more people will be encouraged to join future blogging 101 workshops. Of course content and presentation is sponsored by

Thank you very much for this fruitful afternoon. It was not just a break from my online work, but rather, an investment for a lifetime of blogging...
