Btw, i would like to share this to my readers especially those who are in cebu…

To let a hundred Cebu Blogs bloom.


1. The blogger has to create a new blog about Cebu. Existing blogs with already entries or traffic are not allowed. The blog may be self-hosted, or it maybe in any of the publicly available free sites like, MSN, or

2. It should be a new blog which will have a PageRank of 0 in Google, and 0 authority as according to Blog Authority, Technorati.

3. The blogger should register at the official website:

4. Upon approval, he/she should do the following (this will also be provided) :

o Insert a code that will enable a statcounter, which will count the number of unique visitors and total them.

o Insert a code that will enable the blog to carry the blogroll of all the other accepted contestants. That means all official blogs will carry a link to all other Cebu Blog contestants.

o The blogs may also be asked to carry the logos of the sponsors of the Mandaue Business Month.

o Other than the above, the Cebu blogs are free to add whatever widgets, advertisements, or add-ons that they feel will add to the value of the blog or to their own income. However, please do note that a blog with overwhelming clutter may earn less points in the theme and overall aesthetics category.
