Taga-Q.C. Ka Ba?

Taga-Q.C. Ka Ba?

I'm from Quezon City

I am. And I’m pretty excited to find a Taga-Q.C. as a blog so specific yet so close to home.

The content’s surprisingly good. I would love to see more posts like the Timbooktu bookstore, or even Ateneo’s real world rendition of Frank Warren’s Post Secret, one great filterblog.

You’ll notice the posts I mentioned are a bit Katipunan-centric. Maybe I’m waxing nostalgic over Gayuma or craving for Banapple that I’d love to see posts about them soon. And I hope that the author of this blog (as it doesn’t seem to be a group blog right now) has enough time to scour more streets of this really big, chaotic city and write about it, or at least have more people pitch in. It need not be in-depth, PinoyCentric style, but hopefully something vast and refreshing. This could be the start of something.

Manila may be the capital of the Philippines, and the Philippines as a whole needs more loyalty than its scattered islands and cities, but I’ve done many important things in Quezon City. I’ll dread the day when I have to part ways from it.

  1. Hi ia,

    I’m glad you liked the Taga-Q.C. blog. I do try to cover as many sites and events in Quezon City as much as possible, because my goal is to promote Q.C. as a primary urban city, like Makati or Pasig.

    Thank you for your entry and review about the blog. I really appreciate it. If you don’t mind, I will add you to the list of “Bloggers from Q.C.” If you know other blog authors that are from Q.C. that I can add, let me know also. Thanks.

    Nice blog and portfolio too, by the way.

  2. Hi Cielo, glad you dropped by! I think making a blog about QC is a great idea, that’s why I wrote about it. Writing about a third world country is hard enough; writing about a city in it online is even tougher.

    If you’re looking for QC bloggers I could point a few people in your direction, but I suggest you write some viral rollcall post in sites PinoyBlogosphere. In time the A-list Pinoy bloggers will pick it up and Taga-QC will be a great success.

    Good luck and thanks! ^_^
