Last September 30, the Grade 11, Grade 10, and college students attended a blog orientation held at Kapis Mansions which was managed by the Young Tycoons Guild (YTG). The symposium was entitled “Blogging Essentials for Lasallians” featuring Mr. Danilo Modesto, CSJ-R web developer and Ms. Alexis Puzon, a lifestyle blogger. This event aimed to prepare the students for the 21st Century learning and to equip them with knowledge and tools needed for the writing staff of the CSJ-R official blog.
Mr. Modesto introduced to the students the basics of blogging and also presented the school’s official website. He also talked about the importance of social media and the necessity of avoiding plagiarism.
Next, Ms. Alexis Puson also known as Lexie shared to the students how and why she started blogging. Her blog, 365storiestotell, is composed of her travels & adventures and also featured her love for food and fashion. She emphasized on the five important things to remember when it comes to blogging: one must be unique, must always have good quality, must be patient, must be consistent, and must always stay creative. An open forum was then held after her talk which allowed the students to further satisfy their curiosity about being a successful blogger.
Overall, the event was a success. The students had good responses and learned so much from the blogging symposium.
