In Anticipation of an Aria

The boxset, that is. Diego’s probably ordered one for each of us already so we now play the waiting game.
As a pre-Aria sort of experience, I went and got myself Aria Volume 3, the latest so far (just published September this year). It’s indeed a very wonderful thing. Also stopped by AniCon 2008. Not really worth going to, but there were less sponsors. That’s cool. And there was a maid cafe (which I couldn’t get into because everyone kept staying for so long). Hit the jump if you care for the long version.

WordCamp Philippines 2008

So! usagijen wrote a post on this WordPress Camp waaaay back then (too lazy to find the post) and suddenly, she brings up the fact that there’s a registration. Well holy crap, I never knew that. Thankfully, I still kept the official site bookmarked (WordPress Philippines Camp) and I quickly registered. Hopefully, I will be able to spend a Saturday with my fellow Filipino WordPress users.

So why did I join?
I’m joining for a number of reasons. First of all, it’s a great way to learn more on WordPress itself. Tips, tricks, and all sorts of things on the platform. Not only that, but it’s also a good way to meet a bunch of fellow Filipino bloggers – usagijen and perhaps bluemist (if he can come), to name a few – as well get some ideas and concepts on writing and other things.
Perhaps, it may be my inner desire to be more outgoing and independent. And what better way than to attend a conference an hour or two away from where I live without directly relying on anyone for help?
And Matt Mullenweg is coming. I think that’s pretty awesome in itself.

And now I’d like to extend my gratitude to Mindanao Bloggers for arranging this event. Many thanks also go to these sponsors for supporting the camp.

As for the schedule, it’ll be held on September 6, 2008 at the Augusto-Rosario Gonzalez Theater, 5th Floor Mutien Building of College of Saint Benilde in Taft Avenue, Manila (their site has a vicinity map).
Apparently, even non-bloggers can join, as long as they have a liking for WordPress, though they have a different registration finalization method.
Anyway, anyone else coming?
