If you are not in favor of a National Bloggers Association of the Philippines, then just say “NO!” Or better yet, blog about it.
Don’t just be content with leaving a comment, or participating in an online poll. Go ahead and publish in your own blog your feelings about such a national type of organization.
- Are you scared?
- Are you worried?
- Do you feel you’ll be excluded?
- Na-o-OP ka ba? (out of place)
If some people do go ahead and set-up a National Bloggers Association of the Philippines, will you feel weird if you don’t want to be part of such a group (where joining is purely voluntary)? Will you exhibit approach-avoidance behavior, because you want to remain independent yet you also want to belong to something?
What about the other groups? Will someone organize a…
National Vloggers Association of the Philippines (NVAPH)
National Microbloggers Association of the Philippines (NAMAPH)
National Facebookers Association of the Philippines (NAFAPH)
National Podcasters Association of the Philippines (NPAPH)
Speaking of podcasters, check out the aims of the UK Podcasters Association. The UKPA is the “first and only national membership organisation for UK Podcasters, existing in order to protect podcasters’ rights and promote their interests nationally and internationally.”
The UK Podcasters Association was founded in 2006 to protect podcasters’ rights, and promote podcasting. The association was dissolved at the end of 2009 after three years of prominent and successful activity, during a time when the media landscape changed completely.
(Can’t seem to shake the feeling the NABAPH will be established in 2011, no matter what happens.)
Do you want to give the NABAPH a chance? Blog about it.
Not even a chance? Blog about it as well.
We’ve asked some people what they think about having a National Bloggers Association. Some merely grunted “huh?” while others gave either an emotional “YES!” or “NO!”
Here’s our question for you, though:
“Why do you like being called (or being identified as) a blogger?”
National Online Marketers Association of the Philippines, anyone? 🙂
