Today at nine in the morning, CDO Bloggers Officers visited the Cagayan de Oro City Hall for a courtesy call to the city mayor, Mayor Vicente Emano, in line with the group’s plans and goals for 2012, which, in one way or another, is geared towards the upliftment and rehabilitation, as well as promotion of Cagayan de Oro City after TS Sendong hit it hard.

We spent almost an hour at his office talking about what blogging is, and how the group of bloggers have existed for three years helping to promote Cagayan de Oro City and Mindanao. We talked about how the group has given time to give workshops for those who were interested to learn blogging, as well as how the group helped local businesses and events by promoting them in our blogs for free. We have also presented to him the group’s projects and line up of activities for 2012, and he assured us that whatever support his office can give, he will give it anytime. With this thought, CDO Bloggers Inc. have made an important bond with the city, and this pledge of support is truly something we appreciate very much.

Thank you so much Mayor Vicente Emano—
