I can't believe that it has been a year already. The past 365days surely went by so quickly, it just feels like yesterday that i tortured myself to sleepless nights of planning about what to blog, taking paparazzi-like shots in the campus, composing journal entries for UAPAK, replying to readers' comments and waiting for the verdict of our grades for Interactive Marketing via different metric systems... And yet, i must accept that those were all in the past and a new batch of "forced" bloggers from UA&P's 4th year IMC are now asking me to link them and begging me to read and comment on their entries. *shivers* Déja vu!!!
But, enough about me and my nostalgic stories. The limelight is for the newbies, the new batch of Interactive Marketers for the year 2007-2008. So, let's welcome them, visit their sites and tell them our opinion by giving them a proper comment or two:
1. World Vision = http://urworldvision.blogspot.com/
This blog is a place where you can share YOUR vision about your community, your country, and our world. They regularly have new topics that may cater to your interest and they are encouraging you to share your views through comments. Also, this blog gives you the opportunity to make your world vision come true through your donations. The group is inviting all of us to dream with them through sharing YOUR WORLD VISION, there in OUR blog.
PLUS: they've got a nifty little contest going on until Feb.29, 2008.
2. IMC I AM STRONG = http://imciamstrong.blogspot.com/
This blog is in support of the I AM S.T.R.O.N.G organization and is dedicated to help the youth in their day-to-day decision-making. Topics discussed here are about life, relationships (family, friendship, love), school, and virtually anything under the sun that concerns the youth. They serve as ATEs and KUYAs from the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) and are here to guide teenagers through different situations and help them make the right decisions. Although, I AM STRONG is generally a VALUES FORMATION PROGRAM which seeks to equip the young with values and guide them in acquiring the proper framework with which to assess real-life issues and situations. Issues related to teenage life, tips to being a more responsible individual and announcements of other values formation events are to be regularly posted because the group's beneficiaries are highschool students.
3. UA&P Project ISKO = http://uapprojectisko.blogspot.com/
The members are all advocates of ISKO, the scholars' organization of UA&P. They want to generate awareness for the projects of ISKO to get support from the UA&P community, and others who are willing to support their causes. Basically, Project ISKO is all about helping scholars help others. The bloggers hope to get our support for the achievement of their goals.
Read. React. Donate. This is UA&P Project ISKO.
4. I KEEP LOVE REAL = http://ikeeplovereal.blogspot.com/
This site is a hodgepodge of articles, videos, photos and neat facts about true love and related factors. Based from the beneficiary's website: Not many people understand what real love is…We’re bombarded with too many confusing messages… It is perhaps about time to speak about love really is. Real love is a decision to treat ourselves and others with respect and not use another for our own wants or needs.
This may be the main goal of this blogsite. To spread the true meaning of what real love is and should be.
5. I SHARE HAPPINESS = http://www.isharehappiness.blogspot.com/
The writers in this site believes that happiness can mean different things to each person. it can be love, money, success, etc. But what they believed most is that we feel happiest when happiness is shared. They also believe that happiness is a powerful tool within, that what it can bring is something that is of value. To take that further, their blog's beneficiary is the Make-A-Wish-Foundation and through the readers' donations, the group would be able to grant wishes of terminally ill children. The group envisions this blog to be a venue of positivism.
PLUS: just like World Vision, this group is also offering a nifty little contest going on until March 24, 2008.
There you go my dearest blog lovers! Enjoy and please support them... for I too, have experienced what they're going through and i tell yah, it's not a pretty battleground.
