How it all started
CDOBloggers is an organization that started on November 8, 2008, with a gathering of bloggers at Mindy’s Restaurant in the Divisoria area of Cagayan de Oro City in the Philippines. The group was initiated by Chiq Montes, who invited a group of bloggers to discuss the possibility of hosting the 3rd Mindanao Bloggers Summit in Cagayan de Oro.
In 2009, the group officially registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and successfully hosted the 3rd Mindanao Bloggers Summit in October of that year. The event was attended by bloggers from across the Philippines and was even graced by the Consul General of the U.S. Embassy.
Since then, CDOBloggers has continued to promote Cagayan de Oro as a bustling and peaceful city through their blog posts, highlighting the city’s many attractions and dispelling the notion that the entire island of Mindanao is a war-torn area.
As CDOBloggers celebrates its 10th anniversary, the group looks forward to many more years of promoting Cagayan de Oro and the Philippines through their blogging efforts.
