Event Information

Learn how to create and publish your own DIY blog with Developh as we craft a smaller & more intimate web together. Blogs offer us a space to write & share on the web with more agency & care ₊˚✧

 ✿ Why to blog: your life, words, & perspective on this format matter 
✧ ₊˚ (your own cozy space on the internet vs. social media you can’t control; how to make it as private as youd like)

✿ Ways to blog: Platforms for publishing & how to use them
(from Blogspot/Blogger, Neocities, newsletter blogs like Substack or Tinyletter… + how to get a domain)

 ✿ We’ll blog together: Writing a low stakes post & joining a blogring
(blogring: a collection of blogs linked together ~)

 ✿ We’ll also talk RSS and a bit about blogging history, make 88x31 buttons, and more

You can fill up this questionnaire https://develo.ph/event/blogging101qa to let us know what you'd like to know about blogging.

At the end of the session, you will have a simple blog set up & published, have the link to your blog on the Developh blogring, and will hopefully have a small cozy blogging community to begin writing, reading, and commenting with. ♡ While we might generalize blogs to be 'journalistic' – we'll be exploring blogs with novel quirks, like ones that simply contain voice memos/field recordings amidst diary entries, recipe blogs, or blogs that read like tweets.

We hope you find the value and security in being able to craft a space of your own like this on the web – even if you run the blog for just a week or for the next few decades.

This is the Philippine session of the event. There is a more North America-friendly timed session on December 1st, Thursday at 5:30PM PT/8:30PM ET at https://lu.ma/blogging101na.

​About Developh

​Developh was founded in 2016 by a group of high school students in Manila, Philippines interested in making things together and teaching each other what they knew about technology and design. Now, it is a critical technology institute focused on an intersectional, liberatory approach to technology: reclaming technology as a tool for liberation rather than oppression.

​We presently focus on educational programs (talks, modules), releases of independent & collaborative initiatives (from cassette archives, internship recruiting help, art festivals), supporting community-oriented research initiatives on Filipino computing and design, and publishing.
