The Blogger's Workspace

Blogging is serious business.

Most bloggers do it part-time, because income from it does not immediately become stable, so they report  to an office religiously, and write during their off hours. However, there are entrepreneur-bloggers who have found real opportunity in doing it full time, because of the different sources of revenue they have derived from covering events, social media marketing, copyrighting and advertising. So just like any other business, bloggers who write full-time are conscious of overhead, growth of their advertising sales, and impact on their savings. So they work at home, or go to the nearest coffee shop to write, spending a few hundreds on food and beverage. 

But when blogging becomes more serious, there is a need to get out of the house or coffee shop, and have a more professional representation. A place where you can work, but at the same time, with services that allows you to focus on your craft. That's where COWO comes in. 

COWO is a blogger's dream workspace - conducive for writing, lot of space to sit, strong WIFI, built in services such as money remittance of accepting payments from clients, strong coffee, access to printing services, hot pastry, access to rooms for meeting with clients and like-minded, trustworthy people to collaborate with. COWO has all of these, and more. The professional atmosphere makes you more legitimate to potential clients.

If you are a blogger or a writer, you can go into COWO, find a place to settle down with your laptop, connect to the WIFI and type away those thoughts. 

You can sit in any of the round coworking tables in the "NOMAD" section (sit-anywhere membership), and stay the whole day writing. It beats working in a noisy coffee shop or mall food court. 

Western Union is just at the reception area, so if you need to receive money from your clients, it's very convenient. There will be a courier service installed very soon.

Access to telephones and equipments just in case you need them. While blogging, you can just use the nearest telephone and call the reception area for any of your needs. It's really like having your own office, but without the high overhead.

Private meetings rooms allow them to discuss business with visiting clients or fellow bloggers, where you can rent out projectors and screens. 

The good news for bloggers is membership only costs a few Caffe Lattes a month. At Php 10,000 a year, or Php 850 a month, you get access to all of these features. If you are a blogger, why not drop by COWO and see for yourself. Grab a one day pass here so you can try it out before becoming a member. Here's how to contact COWO -


  1. The membership rates are confusing, is it P10,000 a month or per year? Please clarify.

  2. I'm sorry for the typo. It's only 10,000 a year :)
