2011 World Book & Copyright Day @ UP TechnoHub

2011 World Book & Copyright Day

National Book Development Board in partnership with Intellectual Property Philippines and Filipinas Heritage Library organized free seminars and talks at Technoportal in U.P. AyalaLand TechnoHub last 15 of April.
Book Illustration workshop by Adarna was attended by invited kids, publishers and parents. An illustrator from Adarna share his step-by-step storybook illustration where kids were able to participate and create sketches of their own through the workshop’s drawing kits sponsored by Adarna and National Bookstore.
An scheduled topic regarding Publishing on the Web – How to turn online writing into a profitable pastime was paneled by Tweet Sering of Astigirl and Tara Sering who proxy Iwa Wilwayco of Haymen: Ang Blog na Tunay na Lalake. Moderated by Luis Katigbak. Although the panelist didn’t give an in-depth analysis of the supposed topic which was earning online, they merely promote Tweet Sering’s newly published book based from her Astigirl blogs while Tara Sering’s musing about her book reviews and literary blogs where it gained already an indirect income through speech invitations and re-publishing of her article by foreign inquiries. 
Another session I joined in was the Food and Travel Writing, a somewhat perfect on-topic for my Foodamn Philippines blog, the speakers shared their common grounds and perhaps I rather wish they could justify the topic even more. The panelists were, Kristine Fonacier, Ivan Henares and JJ Yulo. Moderated by Susan Lara. On Ivan’s side, it could have been better if he were able to discuss his powerpoint from start to finish – its the basic of food and travel blogging. He skipped a lot of pages, I only got a short glimpse of it [panelists was given an hour of discussion]. Instead he promoted some of his colleagues’ website and pinpointed the highlights of his travels. 
On Kristine and JJ, the truth was, my kid was a little jumpy didn’t bother to finish and went home earlier. 
The most important part I learned is to blog with full credibility, to have a quality content. Bloggers nowadays are considered highly opinionated, when you blog for consumers, just be honest about it. And deal with constructive criticism as Tweet Sering quoted to avoid negativity and stick to your policy, it’s your space.
