After the Kon Reports: Winter Komikon 2013

Event poster taken from

It's a day after the Komikon and I still have the leftover genkiness from all the feels from yesterday! And I can say that this has been the best Komikon I've ever attended in the past 3 years.

Winter Komikon 2013: An Extraordinary Komikon for an Extraordinary Cause

This year's Winter Komikon 2013 proved to be unlike any other Komikons from before. In the wake of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), komiks artists and fans unite at the Bayanihan Center not just to enjoy komiks but to help to the cause of bringing relief to the typhoon survivors. Almost every booth held up signs pledging to donate all or part of their day's sales to the cause.

Beyond Komiks: Connecting Blogs and Social Network via IFTTT

If you've been in the internet long enough like me, you probably have more than just a Facebook account. Or more than one social network account, for that matter. If you're a blogger, you've probably also have at least one blog hosted in Blogger, Wordpress, Tumblr, etc.

And the question now is, how do you manage updating all of that?
