So, to ensure that the bloggers at your events are TRULY writers, we have now enforced the “Tattoo ng Totoo” (Tatoo of Truth) ID scheme.

From now on, ALL writers will have a Tattoo placed somewhere on their body, that will properly identify them as a true (totoong) representative.

We at have taken some extreme measures to ensure all our 200 members are accounted for and properly recognized.

This is of course a measure taken in response to PR agencies reporting members showing up and using our site to get into their events –



PR Agencies and Event Organizers may now ask the WIM writer or photographer to show their true colors and present their WIM Tattoos. Please do note that we have some members who have chosen to place their tattoos in more private places (where the sun doesn’t shine) and in this case, you may need to usher them to a private screening area where they may show their “Tattoo ng Totoo” official ID.
