If you’re half way around the world and still awake, you can catch the 5th iBlog conference right now on live stream. Currently on its 5th year, iBlog is the longest running conference in the Philippines that brings the entire blogging community together. Morning sessions are usually dedicated to niche blogging topics such as blogging basics, photo blogging, video blogging, mobile blogs and SEO tips.
The afternoon session discusses more about the local blog industry including blog advertising, viral marketing campaigns, and the role of bloggers in the Philippine political scene preparing for the 2010 presidential elections.

He served as Technology Channel Editor for b5Media Inc and has founded the leading blog advertising and word of mouth network called BlogBank in the Philippines. And now, he's gone full circle, landing back with The Blog Herald, the resource that gave him his first blogging job in 2005.
