When I thought I know almost everything about blogging, specifically sa content side, hindi pa pala. iBlog: the Philippine 11th Blogging Summit taught me I could do more as a blogger or online publisher. Thus, I am thankful to be part of this notable blogging event led by Philippine Ecommerce and Digital Influencers ambassadress Janette Toral.
iBlog11 tips on Podcasting
May I confess? Despite that I’m active online due to work, business, blogging, and other stuff; I don’t have a high tech smartphone (may Nokia E71 ako). Of course I have reasons and dapat may reasons din ako to consider before buying new gadgets. These days dumadami na ang dahilan at ilan sa mga iyon ay ang kagustuhan kong subukan ang video blogging or vlogging and podcasting.
Sakto at the #iBlog summit, Marv de Leon of Freelance Blend discussed Podcasting for First Timers, RD Llarena talked about Video Blogging for First Timers, and famous Pinoy dubber Pocholo de leon Gonzales explained Opportunities and Challenges in Podcasting and Video Blogging.
Through Sir Marv’s talk, I verified that it pays to invest in good quality equipment like microphone, head phone, laptop or desktop, digital recorder, pop filter, mixer, and shock mouth for podcasting. For first timer like me, decent mic would be good then once okay na invest na ng iba. Anyway, he also shared naman
- We shouldn’t be intimidated – Nosibalasi ang peg
- Prioritize producing epic content – ahem ako pa lang epic na chuz!
- Commit to do podcasting continuously or at least once in a week- Good luck, but I think doable
I don’t know yet if podcasting is really for me, but if I enjoy it and want to learn more puwede ko siguro gawing mentor si Sir Marv. Na-realize ko lang din na dream ko before na maging radio personality- so perhaps sa podcasting may puwang na ang pangarap ko (hugot!). Baka mas maging bigger, wider, and richer pa ako because of Podcasting.
iBloggers on Video blogging
On the other hand, since Blogapalooza 2014 medyo na-inspire ako to turn my Youtube channel as more than the storage site of my videos. I know that videos would be interesting kung may good edit, effects and background so nandoon ako sa point na ‘yon para i-explore. Pero isang dilemma ko talaga ay gaano ako kahanda to expose myself and work on video blogging. Ako kasi yung klase ng estudyante na ‘di nagtataas ng kamay pero gustong matawag ng teacher para magpabida ahahaha!
Sa iBlog11, I realized so many things that motivated me to do it na. Siguro it boils down to finding the solid purpose, apart sa time is gold and I have ideas/ talents to share chuz! RD Llarena at Pocholo Gonzales gave me insights how to do it, what to expect, and why to do it gracefully despite of concerns. On the other hand, Donald Lim’ (ABS-CBN Chief Digital Officer)’s talk on Mobile Blogging & Advertising and even Louie Sison’s ideas on How to turn a blog from a hobby to a business reminded me na it’s worthy to invest my precious resources (a.k.a time and effort) in video blogging.
follow ko yang advice ni Mr. Donald na “good content and user experience” ang focus dapat sa advertising at yung kay Mr. Sison na “plan your business continuity.”
So more power and stay tune for my explosives and entertaining Youtube channel ahehehehe.
