The Cebu Bloggers Society members were invited by Jun Tariman to guest his tech radio segment program. This was aired thru DYAB Cebu at 3:00 to 3:30 pm, November 2, 2008, Sunday. The 30-minute interview were attended by Clarence of DahongLaya.Com, Kevin of MarRoxas2010.Blogspot.com, Zeniamai of Zeniamai.Wordpress.Com, Empress of EmpressOfDrac.Com, X of ObnoxiousQueer.Com, and Sinjin of Sinjin.Ph.
The special radio segment’s main topic is about blogging. Before the formal interview, the members introduced themselves to the listeners and provided quick background to their respective blogsites. After that, Kevin formally introduced the Cebu Bloggers Society group to the listeners.
Mr. Tariman began the interview by asking the group when does blogging started. It was then followed by series of discussions about how to earn money thru blogging, how to increase blogsite traffic, the role of Search Engine Optimization in promoting your blog, popular money transfer services you should use to claim your blogsite’s income, the importance of blogging in history, best blog platforms to use, and of course the basic steps on how to create a blog.
The 30-minute interview was also broadcast internationally thru live webcast.
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!
