Blogging has evolved from “online diary”, and has now become versatile as each blogger is distinguished with the kind of niche and the type of writing he does through his blog. Blogging has established itself in the online communities as means of gateway for information, how – to guides, entertainment, and/or a weblog to share one’s experience to his friends and families despite distance.

Iligan Bloggers Society, Inc. will be holding this years Blogging 101 Seminar for newbie bloggers and interested people in town. The topics will include: The Basics of Blogging, Bloggers Etiquette, Blog Niche, Elements of a Good Blog, and Bloggers Must Have.
