Blog Quick Links: 03 May 2008

My apologies for the very infrequent posts. I’ve been busy and continue to be busy with some projects I have to do. In the meantime, here are some links which are worth visiting.

* Check out the Blog of the Sagada Igorot. His reaction to an Inquirer article about Sagada’s “takba” mirrored my reaction when I first read the Inquirer story. Methinks the source of the writer, if he did interview a source, was pulling the poor writer’s leg. Anyways, read the Sagada-Igorot’s post here.

* The Call of Nature blog has a must read post on our population problem, machismo, non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV), and the very small number of men (only 73) who underwent NSV in Baguio. Read the post here.

* Here’s something we should look forward to: two professors from Benguet State University are coming up with a biography of Bado Dangwa, World War II guerrilla leader and the first governor of the old Mt. Province (the present Cordillera Region except Abra).

* Howie Severino, host of GMA-7’s Side Trip ni Howie Severino, visits Sagada to look for wild horses. Read his posts here, here, and here. By the way, I stole the above photo from his blog.

* Shameless self-promotion plug: our attempt to gain worldwide popularity (hehehe) is starting to gel. It’s still a challenge though to develop a tone for the blog. Forgive the grammatical lapses because I was more focused on putting the blog’s structure. Excuses, excuses, no?

* By the way, if you know anyone who wants to join GMA-7’s newest reality show, you should encourage them to audition on 17-18 May at SM-Baguio. You can find the details from this Survivor Philippines blog. And here’s some tips on how to prepare for the Survivor Philippines audition.

  1. Blog Away, BILL! I’m sure you’re already getting a worldwide reading audience, hehehe… Or, at least you have a regular reader from Illinois. What grammatical lapses? Believe me, most of your European readers wouldn’t mind at all. Besides, this is your blog, not an English grammar class.


  2. And a regular reader from California.
    Google is making money out of your blogs – that’s why they can afford to feed all employees and their families & visitors European delicacies, among others, for FREE in their headquarters.
    Keep blogging.
