Cebu Bloggers Meet-Up

Yes!  Cebu Bloggers Society does exist!  Hahaha!  But as I can see, it’s still in its forming stage.  I’ve already attended a few meet-ups, and the others even attend press conference and the likes.  Hmmn…I’m looking forward to meet more fellow bloggers who are not only into blogging for money.  I mean most bloggers I’ve known are so crazed up in monetizing their sites.

Well, I’m not against the idea of blogging for money.  In fact, I have blogsites under google adsense.  My point is, it should not become the sole purpose why we blog.  We blog because we wanted our voices to be heard.  We blog to share our unique ideas… to express our individualities and to make unlimited connections to fellow bloggers and people worldwide.

I believe that the passion for blogging is a reflection of our passion for writing.  The passion to write should be the primary inspiration for bloggers.  In that way, blogging can sustain its true essence.  And that’s not definitely the essence of commercialization.  It’s because blogging didn’t start as a tool for business, but a powerful tool for individuals to reach out and to be heard.

But on the other side, who doesn’t need money nowadays?  Everybody loves to earn while enjoying what they love to do.  It actually depends on what side  you’re into.  Good luck to all bloggers out there!

Agnes likes to think that she's a full-time BUM. She's currently doing the things she loves while maintaining a frugal lifestyle. This blog is all about her struggles to live a frugal life, her quest to see the world via budget traveling, and her love to share to other people (via blogging) everything that she is passionate about.

Agnes does not absolutely conform to any beliefs or philosophies. Though she's writing about frugal living and is currently embracing the minimalist lifestyle, she doesn't want to define her existence based on these realities alone. For her, life is too diverse, too colorful, too mysterious. It would be a waste of experience (and time) to imprison herself to a few sets of ideas. Google+ | Twitter

  1. Dai,

    Just check out my post. Naa didto complete links sa mga attendees. Cute au ka ron, nindot au kusi-on hehehehe.

    Pero I agree with you, as much as possible jud, I try to keep my Miss Wilhelmina site away from the evils of being monetized, via selling links, but I wouldn’t wanna be banned by not complying, that’s why I have my other site loaded with paid posts, heheh

    Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.misswilhelmina.com/2008/07/28/cebu-bloggers-meet-up-at-bos/

    By the way, kuyog ko get passport beh, hehehe

  2. hi empress! i think that to balance money-making ang personal blogging one has to keep separate sites, just like weli did.

    For others, they just keep one personal site and maintain a ratio of 1 money-making post for every 3 personal posts.

    but for the serious money-makers, it’s not the blogging but the marketing where you earn most.
