  1. This is a great list… I have been looking to get to know other Cebuano/Cebu based bloggers as well to virtually make friends and exchange experiences with blogging. My blog is only 6 months old and topics varies basically anything about Cebu. I share this blog with my best friend.
    Would really love to get connected to other Cebu bloggers. Would really mean a lot to me if you could send a heads up.
