Singing for iBlog6: The 6th Philippine Blogging Summit - see you there!

Promote this event badgeWhen I found out that iBlog6 was going to be held at the University of the Philippines Diliman - College of Law, an idea struck me - it would be really easy to get one of the many excellent UP performing groups to do an intermission number for this blogging convention. Why not?

I've been to numerous corporate conventions and private events and they always had some sort of entertainment for the guests - so why not here? Hehe. I'm sure it will be good diversion from the series of speeches to hear some good music...

I twittered (lol) and emailed Janette Toral of iBlog about it - I was really excited when she agreed. So, I pulled some strings and finally, despite their busy schedules, I managed to form a small group from my former choir, The UP Concert Chorus, to sing a few songs on the second day of iBlog6.

What will happen on this year's iBlog?

iBlog6 will be a 2-day event, the first day for introducing businesses to advertising and marketing on this new media, and the second day for everyone interested in blogging. We will be singing on the second day, right after lunch. :)

  2. Hala! Should I invite Karylle or Anne Curtis? :p
    I can only promise a brain malfunction when they start talking about SEO and
    other technical stuff like that. Hehehe.

  3. Fantastic. I'd love to see Karylle and Anne Curtis face to face with
    bloggers who used these young stars wardrobe malfunction pics and videos.
    :) Imagine Anne reading from a list of bloggers, ostensibly to hand out
    token gifts for participating in the blog event.

    Pang ilan ka sa list, Rey? Ahehehe. Kidding.
