Kudos to Ms. Janette Toral and the DigitalFilipino.com Club for the successful Bloggers Manila Networking Event held at the Pagcor in Paranaque City.

Thank you to everyone who joined the Blog Action Day 2008 here in the Philippines.
This flurry of blogging about poverty continues for yet a few hours in other parts of the world.
Here’s a sampling of what Filipino bloggers wanted to say:
Its Blog Action Day 2008 today in the Philippines and elsewhere in the world. Imperialism, or the monopoly […]
Poor Filipinos have always been caricatured so badly, with some of the well-off and well-to-do deceiving themselves that the “masang Pilipino” are individually and collectively ignorant, pathetic, gullible, indolent and unproductive. They forever link the “masa” to Joseph Estrada, in an apparent bid to discredit them as no different from their idol who has been found to be a fraud and a plunderer.
Oct. 15 is another red-letter day for Pinoy bloggers with the holding of the Blog Action Day 2008 which carries the theme “Filipinos taking a stand on poverty”.

Gays and lesbians are pitching their colorful tent and claiming their rightful places in the Philippine blogosphere.
This is a heads up to all journalists, bloggers and pundits.
Much has been said about overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) being “modern-day heroes” but perhaps mostly because of the billions of dollars they remit back home. Meanwhile, a growing number of people have grown desensitized by endless sad stories of OFW being beaten, deprived just wages, condemned to die, or just suddenly falling off buildings. In the immediate aftermath of the US economic meltdown, some of the “bright” economists as the Bangko Sentral said the Philippines will survive the crisis — but neither because of strong economic fundamentals or of unflagging investor confidence in the Philippines but by the billions of dollars in OFW remittances to which the Arroyo government has been addicted to.
Nuffnang, an Asian blog advertising community, has reached the country.
Applause, cheers and the never-ending flicker of camera lights welcomed the country’s top bloggers at the 2nd Philippine Blog Awards held Sunday at glitzy rites held at 1Esplanade near SM Mall of Asia.
Some bloggers came in formal attire, while others came in smart casual wear, but no one seemed to mind. Everyone was up on their toes on who were chosen by the judges, mostly bloggers too, as the best across 36 categories.
A number of attendees twittered and plurked and liveblogged, while those who were not present watched the proceedings through webcasts.

Bloggers and tech enthusiasts are invited to two great events this weekend.
Way ahead before Bikoy Villanueva won a landslide victory to become the No. 1 student councilor at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, there was the blogger Bikoy, the lad behind bikoy.net.
A big number of bloggers attended today’s WordCamp Philippines at the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde in Manila. Touted as the first such event in Southeast Asia, the event is now part of local blogging and internet history.
Keynote speaker was Matt Mullenweg, Mr. WordPress himself, who had an instant rapport with the admiring audience of Filipino bloggers.
