A friend told me, what did bloggers contribute to the society, knowing that the population of people having access in the internet is merely less than 5% of the over all population of the country and mostly coming from the middle and upper classes.
Being a blogger like what I mentioned before, bloggers like print writers, TV and movie writers and even story tellers in palengkes and barber shops.
They have stories to tell -- it may be similar to what we see on everyday living -- but the way stories are told may varies on its authenticity and impact to the readers. We can all talk or write about Cheap Medicines Bill but the difference or two or more bloggers, from just mentioning the topic on the blog a blogger who have sense of responsibility may write a deeper commentary on the issue and how it may affect himself and others.
Being a blogger we take a half of the journalistic role of the professionals, and that it to become a citizen journalist, to share information to others who may not know that the Philippines have two entries on the New 7 Wonders of the World, or simply sharing latest tips on earning more on Google Ad Sense. Our topic or craft may be different but our goal is the same and that is through our writings we can influence others.
