Hi Janette I'm so interested in joining the iBlog "mini" Summit. I'm quite a newbie in the Problogging Business but I believe so much in contributing whatever I have or I can to make our country a better place to live in. The event's topic will surely make pinoy bloggers more aware of their influence in the upcoming 2010 election. Thanks.

Hi, I wonder if this mini-summit will have its counterpart in the regions. This is quite a good idea considering that bloggers are playing major roles in US election nowadays, we can also apply this in our local areas.
