Southville hosts Book Blogging Forum at Fully Booked




The fifth and final event of the series “Learn the Southville way at Fully Booked” was held with a lecture on book blogging. The guest bloggers include Kai Agito, from Amaterasu Reads, Kate Manalo of The Bookaholic Blurbs, Hazel Ureta from Stay Bookish, and one of Southville International School and Colleges’ very own, Jesselle Villegas from The Lifelong Bookworm.
Participants of the event received a crash course on topics such as how to write a good book review, designing a blog, and establishing a social media presence. Of course, anyone can be a book blogger! What remains is what book to write about. The book blogging experts stressed the importance of a genre to start with whether sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary as long as one would never lose interest in it.
Aside from writing good book reviews, utilizing social media to share one’s reviews and promote one’s blog can also help create good working relationships with authors and publishers locally and internationally. The audience showed enthusiasm, participating actively in the forum’s Q&A portion. The event ended with applause and bigger appreciation of what blogging is all about making this event a huge success!
