Two of the most awaited events in blogosphere are happening in the next few weeks. First to materialize on September 4 is WordCamp Davao to be held in Bryan’s Grill and Cafe. Two days after, this would be followed by the bigger WordCamp Manila taking place at College of St. Benilde along Taft Ave. And finally, the long-awaited Philippine Blog Awardswill be staged at One Esplanade, Manila on the 21st of the same month. Ok, they’re technically three. =)
