Ways to Celebrate World Bloggers' Day

Yes, there is indeed a World Bloggers' Day. May 2 is World Bloggers' Day, an event initiated by Filipino bloggers, the Cebu Bloggers Society, Incorporated last year and is now truly going global. The day will be highlighted by both offline and online celebrations also in countries like Australia and Singapore.

Why celebrate? Why not? Isn't being a blogger worth celebrating?

Each blogger has a different reason for blogging and I am pretty sure, he or she is not regretting it. Each of us bloggers have our own roles to play in blogging and each of us have a choice to become a positive influence in the blogosphere.

So how should one celebrate World Bloggers' Day?

Of course, connect to other bloggers offline and online.

  1. Attend the offline event in your area. Make friends. Share tips. Exchange links. Promote your business if you want.
  2. Learn from the speakers and interact with them during the event. Use and apply what was learned during the event in your blogs. 
  3. Go online, join us in Facebook, register your blog at the World Bloggers' Day website (WBD). Tweet, re-tweet, blog and invite others to celebrate World Bloggers' Day and have their blogs registered at the WBD site. 
  4. On the day itself, be proud to be a blogger. Greet each other Happy B-day!
  5. If you are in Cebu, join us offline on May 2 and learn from the expert speakers. Updates y alreadavailable in the WBD site, the WBD Facebook page and below in this blog .
  6. Lastly, continue blogging and make the blogosphere and the world a better place for all of us.
