I have just been re-elected as the Vice President for External Affairs of the CDO Bloggers, Inc., a non-profit, SEC-registered group composed of bloggers, online workers and social media practitioners that does not only promote the city and other parts of Northern Mindanao but also the responsible use of the Internet. I’m pretty excited with our group’s upcoming projects including a school tour where we aim to teach kids Internet etiquette, social media activism and online volunteerism as well as blog workshops where attendees can learn how to create their own blogs, draw maximum traffic for their websites and even earn online. And with the elections coming up, we also plan to use our own online mechanisms to remind people to register and vote!

The CDO Bloggers group has been around since 2008 and we continue to welcome new members. Interested to join us? Don’t worry, we’re a fun bunch! Visit CDOBloggers.net for more information about our group, our advocacies and how you can be a member. Be forewarned, though – we all like to laugh, eat, travel, take lots of photos (of food, events and selfies!) and spearhead donation drives like the one we recently did for the school in Besigan, the farthest barangay in CDO – and sometimes do all of these all at once! Really, it’ll be cool if you can join or invite us to teach your group. We like sharing!
