Department Of Education (DepEd) Should Include Blogging in School Curriculum

Based on the survey result of Social Weather Station, there are approximately 8.4 million Filipinos who are unemployed. And that was about three months ago. Imagine how many individuals and families have meager or no income at all.

Unemployment is a huge problem the government must address. To be fair, the government is doing its best to provide citizens jobs through various agencies including the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), as well as livelihood assistance through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

If all of their efforts aren’t enough, or some of the programs are ineffective, then the government should find and try new ways that will lead to the reduction of unemployment in the country.

Why don’t the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) try to include blogging in the school curriculum? Why don’t TESDA try to offer basic blogging as a three-month course? Such as basic blogging site building, attaching layouts, how to simple run and etc.

If you only know how it works, blogging is one of the easiest and most effective ways to earn money.

Blogging doesn’t require a diploma. You only need a computer (you can rent one at an internet shop in the neighborhood), an internet connection, and simple english knowledge to start with.

You are your own boss, meaning you’re self-employed; you can manage your time and do the job at home; you can attend to and provide your family’s needs; and you don’t have to leave your loved ones to work abroad just to earn dollars.

I’ve been advocating this for a couple of years already because I know for a fact how hard it is to get a stable job. I’ve worked as a contractual worker in three well-known broadcast companies and as a government employee with a coterminous status and meager salary.

Owner of Coolbuster.net blog site said despite being a college graduate and a professional civil service exam passer, I wasn’t given a permanent job. So I decided to quit to focus on blogging. From there on I was able to earn a dozen times more than what I got in the past sixteen years.  

I know some Filipino bloggers out there who are making money online, around six figures monthly. If you blog and your blog site becomes popular, ads will follow and cash will pour in. You might even surpass their income.

Why don’t you try blogging after reading this post? Don’t waste too much of your time on Facebook. There’s plenty of blogging resources on the web. All you have to do is read and if you already have a know-how, create a blog. By doing so, you help reduce the number of jobless pinoys.
