my meet-up with the bots (board of trustees) of cebu bloggers society two years ago inspired the creation of ngipirt.com. that is why i'm so thankful and owe so much to this group, my passion for blogging. i still remember seeing jorich, sinjin, beejing, x, kevin chua mingle with all the big time website admins at the digitalfilipino club conference. and until now, it amazes me how bloggers who are so much younger than i am could fuel a group that has gone a long long way. would you believe that i am one of the oldest? i'm only 27! nuuk!
come february 14, the cebu bloggers society will be celebrating it's 2nd year. it's been a wild ride and for the most part i was a free rider. nuuk! i know it got to a point that cebu bloggers society which everyone worked so much hard for almost fell apart. i heard about it. now, everyone's like, "what the heck, moving on..."
congratulations to us for making cebu bloggers society what it is now and what it will become. although i won't be physically with you guys to celebrate, i will be in spirit! happy, happy anniversary. here's to more good times cebu bloggers society!
in two years, blogging in cebu has ripened from just being a mere online diary to something that takes an active role in civic and social awareness.
one of the factors that contributed to this positive development in the blogging scene in cebu is the creation of a local blogging community.
the cebu bloggers society was founded on february 14, 2008, with the main goal of uniting cebu-based bloggers into a well-bonded community. and indeed, after its creation, individuals with diverse backgrounds but with a common interest, which is to promote cebu and advocate blogging as a key tool for progress, converged together to establish cebu’s first and largest blogging community.
the cebu bloggers society has really grown and evolved quite significantly. from its humble beginnings, the group presently has at least 80 members and the number is still bound to increase further.
and now, the group is already anticipating its 2nd founding anniversary! dubbed as “cbs @ 2: the cebu bloggers society 2nd anniversary celebration”, the event is envisioned to further strengthen the bond of friendship and camaraderie within the blogging community.
the anniversary celebration will be held on sunday, february 14, 2010, 5-9pm, at the celebration hall of sm storyland, lower ground floor, sm city cebu.
