DTI Seminar on Blogging for Entrepreneurs


DTI Blogging Seminar

Last Saturday, March 1, 2008, some members of The Usual Suspects conducted a Blogging Seminar organized by the Department of Trade and Industry Office. The seminar was specifically designed for entrepreneurs who are part of the One Town, One Product Program in Region XI.

The seminar was held at the PhilNits which is equipped with brand new Fujitsu PC units which the participants used to make their very own blogs.

I was the first speaker. My topics were “Introduction to Blogging for Entrepreneurs” and “Basic Blogging Terms.” It was fast and simple. I felt like I was connecting with some of the participants and they actually understood what I was talking about.

Then, Kuya Andrew introduced them to GMail. Most of the participants already had email accounts, but it was created and maintained by their children, or other people. They were amazed that creating their own email was so easy. Then, Kuya introduced Google Calendar which the participants vowed to use. They liked the SMS Alert function. There was also a brief introduction to Google Documents. All these Google Apps are very useful not just for entrepreneurs but for everybody as well.
