CBS @ 2: The Cebu Bloggers Society 2nd Anniversary Celebration

Cebu Bloggers Society Anniversary

In two years, blogging in Cebu has ripened from just being a mere online diary to something that takes an active role in civic and social awareness.

One of the factors that contributed to this positive development in the blogging scene in Cebu is the creation of a local blogging community.

The Cebu Bloggers Society was founded on February 14, 2008, with the main goal of uniting Cebu-based bloggers into a well-bonded community. And indeed, after its creation, individuals with diverse backgrounds but with a common interest, which is to promote Cebu and advocate blogging as a key tool for progress, converged together to establish Cebu’s first and largest blogging community.

The Cebu Bloggers Society has really grown and evolved quite significantly. From its humble beginnings, the group presently has at least 80 members and still counting. And now, the group is already anticipating its 2nd founding anniversary! Dubbed as CBS @ 2: The Cebu Bloggers Society 2nd Anniversary Celebration, the event is envisioned to further strengthen the bond of friendship and camaraderie within the blogging community.

The anniversary celebration will be held on Sunday, February 14, 2010, 5-9PM, at SM City Cebu Foodcourt – SM Storyland Celebration Hall.

This big and important event won’t be possible without the help and assistance of the following:


Batang Yagit


Meanwhile, one of the highlights of the celebration is a muse and escort competition. The Cebu Bloggers Society has been divided into 4 groups and we are proud to present the beautiful and charming representatives from each team:

FIREFOX – Orange team


SAFARI – Red team

CHROME – Green team
