At The Great Wall of China

Hi! So if you haven’t figured it out yet, that’s me right there. My name is Elmer G. Balbin Jr. and I manage The Visayan Blogger 🙂

I am from Bacolod, Philippines and I currently work as a front-end web developer in one of the companies in Cebu. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology way.. way.. back in 2013.

I launched The Visayan Blogger in December 2016 but only started to write more frequently a year later, in December 2017. Since then, it has undergone numerous changes including site redesigns, domain name updates, different web hosting providers, and a shift on the topics that I write about. Blogging has not only provided me with a means to help others and new experiences but was always – and still is – a nice escape from everyday work life.
