April is just the second publication month of the B&F channel, but I'm pleased by the quality of content that has been pouring out from its dedicated writers. Believe me, it's not an easy task, being an editor and a writer for thePOC. It requires intellect, commitment, attention to detail and most important of all - passion.
I might sound mayabang here, but the truth is not just anyone can do this unless this is where your heart is. After two months of working with my writers, I can say with all honesty that they love what they're doing.
I'm sure that some of you might find it hard to take the channel seriously - after all, it's not from Summit or any of the big publishers in the real world. thePOC is a project of Vibal Foundation, the charitable arm of Vibal Publishing House. The goal of the foundation is simple: to foster the development of knowledge through the support of digital media. It's the only foundation of its kind here in the Philippines to actually utilize the Internet for this reason. We would all appreciate it if you can support that goal by reading and providing feedback at thePOC.
Aside from that, here are the reasons you should read our Beauty and Fashion Channel:
1. It's free! It doesn't cost anything to get the link and paste it on your bookmarks or feed readers. If you find that the articles are a waste of time, no one is forcing you to read them. However it would be great if you can give it a chance! You might find something you like.
2. Quality of articles. Each article in the channel is well-researched and well-written. They're about kikay things, but you can find perspective and insight in the writers' work.
3. No ads. Since the project is funded by the Foundation, the site is dedicated to being a repository of information and opinion that aren't tainted by product endorsements.
That's about it, really. I do hope that I've convinced you to follow the B&F channel, the way that you follow this blog. It would mean a lot to me. :) If you can give me feedback about how the channel is run, how the articles are written, and topics you want to read about, that'll be great!
