Why I Blog for Cebu and Why You Should Too

As of writing, this blog, The ViXeN's LaiR, has exactly 231 published blog posts and this post makes that number 232.  I have been blogging since Multiply days and in retrospect, I am amazed at the person I have become because of blogging.  I used to blog only about myself, now I blog for Cebu and this post brings you the answer to the why's.

Blogging used to be my medium to rant or shout praises.  The earliest posts really showcased my extreme highs and ultimate lows. Overtime, the deeper I got into blogging, the more sociable and interactive I have become in real life.  Blogging heightened my curiosity, cultivated my whimsical interests in various topics and most noteworthy is the fact that blogging polished my language skills into a competitive caliber I am proud of today.

Now, I no longer consider my blog as my own personal virtual private space.  My blog is now a platform I use to effectively shoutout and reachout in an aim to influence Cebuano readers on what is relevant in the current modern day Cebuano lifestyles. 

I blog for Cebu because the island of my birth deserves to be the muse of my writing.  I put Cebu as the centerpiece of my blog because everywhere in Cebu and the Cebuanos too are overflowing springs of inspiration that the whole world ought to know about.

The ViXeN's LaiR is proud to be a member of Cebu Blogging Community a group which mirrors my drive and dedication to make blogging an act of social responsibility.  We'd love for any Cebuano blogger lurking out there to join us and be an open book for anything Cebu.

  3. That's really a great realization Isa. I've committed myself to blog also for social good and not just for myself. Since we're given this very helpful platform that can reach millions of people in the world in just an instant, it's best to put it to good use right?

  4. This is a great post Isa! At first I started my blog when I was pregnant (because I had nothing else to do at home!) and thought I'd make it as a diary. But now, I've seen the bigger picture and I wanted to share stories and experiences that people can relate to or be inspired with. Mother power! haha

  12. Blogging for Cebu is my idea of a perfect motivation to keep on doing this craft. I initially blogged for personal reasons, too, but as days passed by I realized that I had more friends outside Cebu and so I wanted to keep an outlet where they could see the beauty this city has to offer. I know I'm doing a great job at it because a lot of my friends are planning their visits here soon! :D
