Join the Philippine Blog Carnival: Manila, My Manila

Thanks to Grace of Filipina Soul, I was encouraged to revive a little known group-blogging project called the Philippine Blog Carnival.

It is a digest of blog posts by Pinoy bloggers blogging about anything that captures their interest be it a city in the Philippines, Pilipino culture and being Pinoy, common experiences, the stories of Juan dela Cruz among others. It is a demonstration of the diversity and energy of the Pinoy blogging community.

With this, and on behalf of Grace, we’re inviting you to join the upcoming edition of the Philippine Blog Carnival with the theme: “Manila, My Manila.”

All you have to do is tell your stories about the City of Manila; experiences, favorite places, food, people, anything about the city. Blog about it, use photos, make a short video or podcast. As long you are a Pinoy or Pinay who has a blog and have something to contribute, you’re very much welcome.

Simply visit the Philippine Blog Carnival page to learn more and if you’re ready, you can submit your entry using this link.

The deadline for submission is this Friday, June 27, 2008. The carnival, which is a super blog post containing a write-up about the contributions plus loads of link love to the respective bloggers will be posted on Saturday, June 28, 2008.

Want to host the Philippine Blog Carnival?

Which brings me to this point, if you’re willing to host the “Manila, My Manila” edition of the Phil. Blog Carnival on your own blog you’re free to do so. You don’t even have to write the super blog post itself, I’ll just e-mail you the draft post and all you have to do is to publish it on your blog. Soon enough, all those who joined will visit your blog to see how the carnival turned out and read all the other entries that made it into the carnival. Are you up for it? Just get in touch with me using this contact form.

Again, any entry be it a regular blog post, video post or podcast is welcome as long as it has something to do with the City of Manila. Of course, spam and off-topic entries will not be accepted.

To help you get started, here’s a great video documentary about Manila during 1938.

Much thanks to Philippine-American Commentary for sharing this gem.

Hope you’ll join or spread the word about the Philippine Blog Carnival, and I’m excited as how it will turn out.
