You may be wondering why I don’t post much about Manila, my grimy, dirty, lovable city. That’s because I write about my city over at the Manila Metroblog.
Metroblogging is “the largest and fastest growing network of city-specific blogs on the Web.” There are currently around 50 cities in the Metroblog network, among them Bangkok, San Fransisco, Singapore, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Berlin and New York City.
It’s a great place to know more about a city you’re thinking of visiting: see the city though a local or an expat’s eyes; get ideas where to shop and dine; read about what’s happening as it unfolds (like in the case of Hurricane Katrina, the London Bombings, the Kashmir Earthquake, Dawson College Shooting and most recently, the Thailand Coup).
Whether you’re researching for your trip or just looking for new blogs to add to your RSS, do check out the Metroblogs.
