It’s More Fun in CBSi: Cebu Bloggers Society’s 4th Anniversary CelebrationPosted: February 8, 2012
There is only one blogging group in Cebu that continues to thrive in reshaping online publishing in the city and introduce a new form of media, thereby bringing citizen journalism to the next level. Cebu Bloggers Society, Incorporated empowers everyone in changing information dissemination and consumption.
Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. will be celebrating its fourth anniversary on February 11, 2012, at Azkals Sports Bar and Grill. The dinner is a get-together for old members and new ones.
In its fourth year, CBSi is still true to its commitment to the Queen City of the South: promoting the Cebuano culture and the city’s diversities both offline and online.
With this year’s theme “It’s More Fun in CBSi,” the organization aims to bring entertainment, camaraderie, excitement, and delight to its members through events and activities that would benefit them as bloggers and as individuals.
The Bond through the Years
Since CBSi’s creation four years ago, there have been countless blog testimonials from members on how great and fun it was to spend time and work with the growing CBSi family.
From attending the US Election Watch on 2008 to being interviewed in radio and TV shows, organizing outreach activities through gift giving and mini-concert, teaching students in mountainous areas on how to use a computer, and feeding the less fortunate and abandoned elders and children, it’s indeed always more fun and heartwarming being part of the CBSi family.
“Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. is more than an organization for me, it is a family of different kinds of people but of the same bloodline, blogging. In CBSi, we don’t see each other as competitors, instead as brothers and sisters who might need help in their corresponding fields or who can help the family [organization] grow into a more organize and respectable blogging institution. As a founder, I am so blessed that CBSi has gained such name and is patronized by members who make working in the group more fun and enjoyable,” stated Mark M. Monta, founder of Cebu Bloggers Society.
Aside from outreach activities and fun-filled events by invitations, CBSi has also organized the Wild CBSi Camp Out in Busay, World Bloggers’ Day Offline Celebration here in Cebu, the CBSi 2010 Election Coverage, the Filipino Blogosphere and Political Participation Forum, and the Second Visayas Blogging Summit, one of the largest social media summits in the country. All of these just tighten the bond of the members.
CBSi, along with its current set of leaders and active roster of new and old members, will be more visible in Cebu’s online scene, rocking 2012 and the blogosphere while enjoying one another’s company.
