I was one of the resource speakers during the recently concluded CDO Bloggers 3rd Blogging Workshop. Held last October 22, 2011, the very successful blogging workshop saw the attendance of several would-be and existing bloggers, SEO specialists, online media practitioners and social media enthusiasts. It was really great to be in the company of like-minded individuals ;) My topic was about public relations and blogging. Like I told the participants, I've been in the PR industry for a decade and in the traditional media for about 5 years. I discovered the beauty of blogging and online media about 5 years ago and I continue to learn a lot about the importance of putting publicity, online media, social media and blogging together. Anyways, I talked about what publicists really do, the d...

I will make this short and sweet. This Mindanao blogger will be one of the speakers during the CDO Bloggers 3rd Blogging Workshop on October 22, 2011, 1 PM to 5 PM at Loreto's Grill, #35 Tomas Saco - 6th Nazareth, Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao, Philippines. My topic: Public Relations and Blogging. If you're wondering what each of these are, how the two can mix together and how important it is that the two go hand and hand, then that's exactly why you must come and attend ;) There will be two other speakers and their topics will be about social media / SEO and web / Internet Marketing. A very minimal fee of Php 300.00 (this is already inclusive of a meal for one) will be collected and the event will only accommodate up to 75 people. I hope to see you guys there. I would love to ...

It's exactly 5:31 AM. September 21, 2010. I'm bound for Manila today. I'm supposed to be at the airport in a few hours' time but I can't resist this chance to go online and blog in order to share one piece of good, exciting news - Mindanaoan is attending the 17th National Public Relations Congress! WOOT! :) Yes, my earlier post got me a free delegate pass to the country's most prestigious PR event of the year! As a practising publicist, social media consultant, blogger and media practitioner, this opportunity to listen to and learn from top PR and media executives is absolutely a blessing! I am looking forward to all the talks - especially those by Weber Shandwick Asia Pacific Chairman Tim Sutton and Ogilvy Southeast Asia Director Andrew Thomas. (more…)

Exactly who in Lanao del Norte, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Caraga received the P2.7M worth of checks?

This is exactly why I sometimes dislike writing news articles based on press releases or announcements (especially those from government entities.) You really don't get the minute details, you know that most of the time these PRs are just to "beautify" the government's image and if you really need to get to the bottom of things, you have to exert effort and really research. Unfortunately for journalists like me, however, there really are days when you don't have any other choice but to stick to the PR or media statement and hope that your article comes out fair, balanced and factual. I read a rather interesting article today."Displaced OFWs from Mindanao get P2.7M gift from Arroyo" - GMANews The article claimed that President Gloria Arroyo handed out a total of 33 checks worth P2.7 m...

Mindanaoan now accepts link exchange requests

Internet, Mindanaoan Update, Technology
Okay, so just a very quick update before I bid beddy-bye. Mindanaoan now accepts requests for link exchange. Due to the numerous requests that I've been receiving as of late, I finally set up a LINKS page. You are welcome to request for a link exchange provided that you also place a reciprocal link (and, yes, perhaps a quick review of this blog or a good word or two =D) to www.Mindanaoan.com (an active/clickable link please!) on your page/website/blog. Please note that not all link exchange requests will be accommodated. I reserve the right to reject certain requests. To forward your request, you may use this contact form or you may leave a comment on any of my entries. Salamat po! (Thank you!)
