  4. Dear clogger team et all,

    Today I am very impressed on your workshop you know. Though it lasted a day long, and will be another full day, I am willing to join as a part of modern world technology awareness. Hey, it does not because your attraction, giving away the gife, but I want it anyways.
    As you mentioned,to those people who deserve one of the gift need to respond an appropriate reason of usage of this equipment related to blogging. Frankly, I am very young in term of blogging, though I have my own one-never update because before I do not know what is the use of taking time on such thing. Now I realize.
    If I could have a video camera, I would attach it with me all the way around. Of course, the vedio camera is used to capture the picture and the scense, and it must be that. I would be used to accompany me to grass-rooted communities as I usually go to the provinces to teach young children, and I would share what I have experienced and the pictures taken by posting those on my own blog to share with you guys. The last but not the least, the vedio camera is a symbol of a motivation of mine that encourage me to work on blogging.

    If I a chance to get a camera, I will use it as following:

    -Taking photographs of situations of children who are homeless and their problems. And then I will post it in my blogger in order to show the world and ask for funds to help them as well as to tell the government to pay attention to them. Children are very important to develop the society.

    -Taking photographs of people who have problems. When people are in trouble, they always need help and to be know because they want to share their problems to others and get advices. So, not only Cambodian people but also the world know them and they will help them, if they can.

    -Taking photographs of resorts. I want to show the world that Cambodian has many rsorts to have vacation and holidy. When the tourists come to Cambodia, they will spend money for every thing. So the money will belong to Cambodian government and people.

  8. Dear Cambodian Bloggers Summit,

    How developed is Phnom Penh? My blog’s title is ” Phnom Penh on the Move “. If I have a digital camara, I’ll take photographs of Phnom Penh in order to show and prove the world about the beauty of it and how developed it is. Through my blog,the world especially Cambodians living abroad will know and see how develop it is. Furthermore, in order to make the blog more interesting and popular, pictures are required. if I have my own pictures with good discrission, it’ll make my blog unique. Therefore, if I can get a digital camara, it’ll make my blog more believable and attractive.
    Please consider me !
