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!
