Shai Coggins: A Powerful Pinay in the Blogging Community

My co-blogger and nanopublisher Shai Coggins has been featured in the Cyberspace page of The Advertiser as "a powerful woman in (the) online community."

Shai is a Filipina based in Adelaide, Australia. She is's Guide to Weblogs and one of B5Media's nanopublishers.

Filipina Bloggers at iBlog2

One worry that I had when preparing for iBlog2: The 2nd Philippine Blogging Summit - is whether I'll be able to attract female speakers to join this year. You see last year, we only had one lady speaker then.

Fortunately, several bloggers volunteered to be a resource person and moderator for this event. I can't wait to meet Noemi Lardizabal-Dado, Zarah Gagatiga, Ma. Elena Cardinez, Charo Nuguid, and Ellen Tordesillas.

Another interesting lady active not only in blogging but also in Web 2.0 technologies is Peachy Herrin. I'm certain we'll be hearing more from her on the local developments in this area.

Update: I also interviewed Peachy in Podcast Episode 2.
