I applied for a writing gig at Metroblogging and filled one of the slots! Yehey! *passes free MRT tickets to everyone (hee hee)* Metroblogging is a network of city-specific blogs — each blog talks about what’s going on in their city. Want to know what’s going on in Miami? They’ve got a blog. How about Vienna? Yep, they’ve got one too. I’m one of the writers for the Manila blog and it’s time for me to keep those eyes and ears more alert.
What I liked about Metroblogging is that it’s a pretty personal web of blogs. I like how casual this network’s atmosphere is. That’s what encouraged me to apply. The entries aren’t too formally written — it’s as if you’re taking a tour of the city with a friend of yours. We’re encouraged to write about our favorite hang-outs, things we like (or dislike) doing, or perhaps things that catch our attention in the city. I’ve been living in Manila all my life and it’d be great to tell my share of Manila stories to the rest of the blogging world.
So… here we go! If you have any story suggestions, you can tell us about them here.
