A dozen or so Cebu-based bloggers met in Bo’s Coffee Club on Osmeña Boulevard in Cebu City yesterday afternoon.

Winston organized the gathering by posting an invitation in his site for a meet-up. Winston and Blogie Robillo then shared with Cebu bloggers how they were able to organize the Davao blogging community.

I came into the meet-up from a meeting with Wilson Ng and Rio Calle on a web development project related to the Mandaue Business Month in August. During the meet-up, Wilson presented his plans for the Mandaue activity, which will include several technology-related events.

During the meeting, the bloggers agreed to meet regularly for coffee on certain weekends. Winston gathered contact details of those present and will be setting up a mailing list to centralize discussions related to Cebu blogging meetings and events.

Among those who attended were Aldrin Ponce, Rodelio Lagahit, Aileen Estoquia, Wilhelmina Sarawi, Kevin Ray Chua, Xerxes Bernadez, and Mark Abitona.

It was great to meet Cebu-based bloggers and talk shop. I hope meetings can finally be held regularly. I still want to organize a local WordPress users group—maybe next time. In yesterday’s meet-up, I was able to hand out my last three Ubuntu CDs (the others have all been claimed by Sun.Star Cebu readers).

Since I came into the meeting with Wilson and Rio, it’s quite understandable that I’d be mistaken for a Ng Khai employee. Sorry, but I’m not. I work full-time for Sun.Star Cebu but I run my own consultancy for new media projects. Right now, however, I’m considering spending more time on new media projects that I have long wanted to start. Interesting times.

    If you need help with setting up that Cebu WordPress users group, do let me know. I’d like to help out as much as I can.
