Being in the blogging world for more than four years, I still get to ask by family, friends, colleagues and readers what a blog is, what a blogger does, how to easily setup one, among others. I feel glad that many are showing interest to write and I try to help and explain as much as I can. I believe that all of us were born writers; it just takes honing and practice to be one.

This coming October, HU Studio is launching its first-ever blogging workshop titled “Blogging 101: A guide to starting a blog.” The company will help you get started from scratch, encourage your passion and answer any questions you have about blogging.

Also, yours truly has been invited to be a guest speaker to share my learning and experience in blogging. It will be my first time to have a public speaking event for bloggers, so I am very excited about this!
