On April 1, 2009, this blog’s first post was published. It was still called cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com
The first post was a Hello World thing… LINK. The blog aims to provide all the articles and links to developments in the city, the province and the region. Several posts followed and viewership increased by the day and month. It seemed a lot more people have become interested in developments in the city.
On July 20, 2011, cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com merged with cdolifestyle.wordpress.com and cdoheritagewatch.wordpress.com to become cagayandeorodev.com. By that time, the blog already had 1,295,000 Blog Hits. The merging also brought in some google analytics to analyze the blog stats.
On November 28, 2011, cagayandeorodev.com became cdodev.com. A few weeks later, cdodev.com was hacked. It went up online again after resolving the server and hacking issues.
On December 17, 2011, Sendong struck Cagayan de Oro and many people were searching the net for updates. On December 18, 2011, cdodev.com went offline as the server host crashed. The crash caused the erasure of some 65 posts. The posts were restored (actually, re-posted) one by one in January 2012 after a server was found.
As of March 31, 2013, there have been 5,002 posts, 24,789 comments and 3,695,305 Blog Hits or 2,404,876 Blog Hits since July 20, 2011.
