What’s up with that? Anyway, I started blogging 2006 and I officially started this blog last June 2007 (HOMIGAD! I forgot that I just had surpassed 4 years of blogging. Here was my first post).
I bought the domain TambayanBox.org cause I wanted to feature Cebu Bands, Cebu Events, Places, Gigs and others. Yes, I was one of the pioneers (I think. Long before most bloggers did it.) who featured these stuffs. I had a vision for the site and I did get a decent following specially from bands. My biggest problem was, the site was hard-coded. Pure HTML and CSS! At that time, I thought using CMSes was not “ethical”. I acted like a wannabe-HTML-CSS-purist! I have managed to get the backup of the site running again for evidence’ sake! Here is the old Tambayanbox.org site.
Due to that, I ended up not being able to easily update the site! So, I tried to create a subdomain, blog.tambayanbox.org (was named [d’MusicBox]* for more than 3 years and was just changed to [TambayanBox]* lately to slowly migrate the site to the original domain but I changed my mind), to house my personal ramblings and all the shiznit using WordPress. I ended up loving WordPress and all my attention was put to the new personal site and added more WordPress blogs and it spelled death for TambayanBox.org – “The Real Online Tambayan“. DEATH! I had a big vision that also largely failed (maybe because of that cheesy tagline)!
I wanted to continue what I started in TambayanBox in this site (blog.tambayanbox.org) but I think it would look really awkward mixing it will my personal ramblings and I will be left with no place for my personal ramblings if ever. Also, I need a place to house my post-event and pre-event articles for most Cebu Blogger’s Society events and others as I hate putting too much formality in this blog because in the first place, I am not formal (at all!).
So now, I am all set to start TambayanBox.ORG 2.0. This will still feature Cebu Events, Cebu Bands, Cebu Hotels, Restaurants, Malls, Beaches, et. al.
Watch out! The Spot, The Bands, The Gigs and The Music! TambayanBox.ORG, The Real Online Tambayan. SOON To Re-OPEN!
