Before I give you five reasons why I would love to attend this Blog Camp, I’d tell you first five reasons I’m into blogging.

 1. Blogging is therapeutic.

 I started a very close relationship with blogging just last March 2011 when I felt the need to vent out. That time, I was bothered by a confusing thought in my head and a discovery of something within me that I couldn’t bring to tell even my closest friends. I was planning to tell them anyway, but I wasn’t ready yet. So, what I did, I wrote my feelings and thoughts and poured out my emotions through words which I posted in my blog. After having written everything, believe it, I felt relief.

 2. Blogging is fun.

My summer is boring. I didn’t take any summer classes or traveled abroad or to other places. I just stayed at home. Blogging kept me entertained throughout the summer and I got to enhance my writing skills, the one I think is rusty after not having exercised them after graduating high school.

3. Blogging allows me to express the words I couldn’t say 

I’m not a very talkative person. (Or maybe, that’s an understatement.) But I do keep my guards up all the time especially when dealing with people I’m not so close with.  Sometimes, I can share my thoughts and feelings better when I write them instead of saying them.

4.  Blogging allows me to keep track of my life. 

Blogging also functions as a diary or journal. With my blog, I can look back to the things I did, events I attended and dramas that I succumbed to and make an evaluation of myself and know the things I improved on and things that still needs improvement.

5.  Blogging keeps my friends updated.

Sometimes, you just can’t tell everything through text messaging or Facebook chatting. In text and Facebook, you can’t write so much details. With my blog, if ever there’s something new with my life: a discovery, a recapitulation, an experience or an idea that needs to be shared, I just message my friends to read my post.

Okay, here are now the reasons I want to join Cebu Blog Camp 2011 this coming May 28, 2011:

1. Because I’m a noob blogger

I’m new to blogging so I don’t know much the 101s there is. I use blogging as a medium of vent outs, and have no idea how to use it for other purposes. I’m sure that joining this camp will fill me with information that will help me become a better blogger.

2. Learn from the experts-

The speakers of the camp are imba bloggers or imba netizens. As a noob, I’d pretty much want to meet these guys.  Since this camp is for free, it’s an opportuniy I must not let slip away. Here is the link of the camp’s program with the list of topics and speakers. (link)

3.  Photography– One of the topics for me  is so timely as I’ve recently developed an extreme, a serious passion for photography. In the camp, we will be taught the basics of photography, how to use camera settings, composition and lighting and the usage of the different photography tools and equipments. (list of program here). This is a very good opportunity for me as I’m not only noob to blogging, but I’m also noob to photography (and DoTa, too… {offtopic} hahaha). I’ve been self-studying photography online, but I know it’s going to be really different when you have someone to mentor you.

 4. Meet new people and expand my network– Honestly, I’m someone who really aspires for fame. Hahaha. I can’t help but want to see more views and hits on my blog and it really makes me happy to see a comment (even a spam, like WTH? I even approved some spams I received, thinking it was a heartfelt comment from a reader) on my dashboard. When I was using blogger, I so aspired to have more followers. Yes, I want to get famous, I want my blog to be popular. Is that wrong? (hahaha.) So, maybe if I meet bloggers who share the same interest (like in my case photography and a bit of randomness and drama in life) I’d get more readers?

5. Freebies– Who doesn’t want them? Hands down.

I hope I’d be able to go to this camp. I’m excited. Can’t wait. See you there!
