As I said in my Plurk, I need to evolve in my blogging and that’s why I joined Barrio Siete, the refuge of all barrio folks who have made their mark in the city. It is always nice to go back to one’s roots and smell the breeze. My only mistake is that I thought we would all reminisce about all things promdi. I didn’t quite expect that we would talk about current affairs and intellectual chorva of the highest order. Napasabak tuloy ako!
Take for instance my post yesterday. Usually, I prefer writing about food, travel and other kakikayan sa buhay. I never really thought I’d go back to writing about Katrina Halili and the danged video scandal again. I had to because I need to blend in and be a trying hard social climber with all those heavyweights in BarrioCity like Reynz, the CPA with MBA from George Washington U, Cath ~ the CPA with doctorate and former dean, and other twinkle twinkle little stars (stand up to be counted na lang mga bro…. at bra).
The members are so prolific in Barrio Siete and the place is always packed with comments and posts. Not a dull moment here. If you’re a Filipino who wants to see a different dimension to present day blogging come on in. The only disadvantage is that the blog is predominantly written in Tagalog and might not be tailored for foreigner-kibitzers who don’t understand our native tongue. In that case, there’s always Yahoo or Google translator.
With all the action and reaction… mark my word, Barrio Siete will be an emerging influencer.
I mean, my votes for DigitalFilipino’s Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009 is up soon. Masaya ito! 😀
