Supporting the Filipina campaign


Around two weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Dine encouraging support for her "Filipina" campaign. Peachy Herrin also shared this concern on our 2nd podcast. Dine and Noemi are also working together on The Filipina Images site with the intent of reshaping the image of the Filipina online.

I first heard of this campaign through Vonjobi who started it. At that time, all I could do is write a post about it.

Writing a blog post may help but I felt that there should be something bigger that needs to be done and hence the launch of the Filipina Writing Project. I'm encouraging everyone to participate and hope that this will also be a good preparation for an eyeball being set up on December 5.

When I posted this last July, it was supposed to be a pure search engine contest of sort. However, it is also a reality that not many are aware of SEO and may find the process complicated. Over the weekend, I began thinking of whether I will just scratch the project or convert it to something else.

This is where the writing project came to mind and perhaps may make more sense. Through quality content, I would like to believe, may be able to affect and influence search engine results. Whether that will be true or not remains to be seen.

I hope you can join the Filipina Writing Project.
