  36. 36. Learnings Branding. To be effective, a blog needs to be unique and specific. Just like in any other brands, it must have its own personality or Unique Selling Proposition (USP). A blogger can’t just say, “I want to create a blog that shall talk about what other bloggers are talking about.” or “I want to tackle about anything under the sun on my blog.” Focus is very important in blogging. It doesn’t only help your readers remember you and what your blog topic is all about, it also has implications on the keywords that applies to your blog. Search Engines rely on keywords in generating results from an end-user’s query. Using the right keywords is a big factor in the success of a blog. But first, knowing how to find them depends on how unique and specific your blog is.
  37. 37. Learnings Creativity. The next step to creating a successful blog is knowing how to write catchy titles and exciting contents. A blogger must be able to place himself in the shoes of his readers. A blogger must strive to make each blog post as interesting as possible. It must be able to provide something new and fresh that the readers will delightfully read. Furthermore, creativity is very much needed in finding out more ways to promote one’s blog post- after writing it. There are many social media platforms out there that can help a blogger increase his blog’s Pageviews. Some of these are Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, LinkedI n, Tumblr and Email. Aside from online promotions, one must also not forget the power of offline promotions such as word-of-mouth.
  38. 38. Learnings Opportunities. Because of my increased online activity for Intramuros Manila, I was able to win a client from Hong Kong who needed a tour guide for her scheduled tour in Intramuros. I consider this a success of being in the Blog and Social Media Entrepreneurship Program because, at the end of the day, the goal of the program is to harness the power of social media in creating earning opportunities. I learned to not only rely on what’s currently given (e.g. bloggers earn income through online advertisements and paid posts) but to constantly seek for other income-generating opportunities through blogging.
  39. 39. Learnings Ethics. I learned through my experience of interviewing a fellow blogger whose publishing rights were violated, that ethics in cyberspace should be properly observed. Ethics, I realized, may be one of the things that some bloggers take for granted as of now. But for me, it is something that everyone should give proper attention to, especially nowadays that the online industry is booming. The security and sustainability of the progress of the industry that a lot of people right now is embracing, studying about and earning income from depends upon their observance of proper ethics.
