Zamboanga Peninsula Bloggers

A few weeks ago, my friend Mr. Jerome Locson initiated a gathering of bloggers.  I immediately replied and volunteered to help out.  I like meeting new people and organizing gatherings and events even if these are sometimes too stressful to do.  I don’t know, but I feel alive and productive if I see an avenue for some of my ideas come to life.

Anyway, we have already met twice and have already added each other on Plurk, which is a way for us also to bond online.  We get to tease each other and comfort one another through the said latest micro blogging tool.

We also have made progress by making our meetups constant, we are scheduled for a meetup every tuesday night in any place as long as there is WIFI access.  So far the only place where we’ve met is at Mr. Bean Cafe in Catribo Complex, do you have any suggestions of another place where it would be cool to hangout?

We also planned to tap Bloggers living or are former residents of Zamboanga Peninsula Region.  Our region is always in the front page of Newspapers because of the different chaos that have transpired but rarely do we read good news that have happened and have given us pride.  We intend to change this course, with the help of blogging. I also believe that if we truly would want change to happen, we should not only be contented on doing the complaining but look for ways for this to come into reality. We also aim to promote unity, camaraderie and prosperity amidst our differences in religion or beliefs, school, age, gender and so much more.

We are still in the lookout for more active Zambo Pen Bloggers and if you know of one, kindly refer us to him or her.

If you would want to join us and be acquainted online or offline.  Just comment on this page and leave your contact info and we would get in touch with you as soon as we can.

By the way, if you are on facebook, you can hook up with us by joining our Facebook Group

Muchisimas Gracias! Daghang Salamat and…. Assalamu alaikum

    Hi Yolynne,

    Quetal? I was born in Zamboanga, grew up in Davao then went back there for my last year in high school then went back to Davao. Glad to know that there is a bloggers’ community in Zambo. Hope the Fiesta Pilar went well.

    Cheers! 🙂

    What a great concept Yolynne. I’m subscribing to these blogs. Mindanao blogging is becoming …. well, multidimensional.

    just started blogging last sept’08 here at wordpress and it’s great to hear some other Zamboangueños are blogging too. I know some friends who blog (at least at a personal level) but aren’t part of any community like the one you have now.

    I see your pic above and the bloggers look like they’re still students? (except for quite a few).I’d be delighted if you count me in.

    my email’s and I have a blog here at wordpress but I’m still too shy to show it off. It’s not that impressive and I have only like 3 entries for the past 2 months. Been really busy with work but I have quite nice ideas on my mind but haven’t had the time to compose a write up yet.
    But if ever your curious its 🙂
