Oh my, i think Pete Hopskins from Blogger must be drinking while working again because he says people from the Philippines (Filipinas en Español, because they named the country in Honor of Felipe el hermoso) speak Filipino. i guess that means i Speak Mexican and not Spanish. how blind i have been!

But obviating Pete serious drinking problem under working hours, the good news is that all my fellow Pinoy friends can now not only end their sentences with "Po" (when possible) like when they write in Tagalog. but they now can do it in their own Localized version of Blogger.

And am glad they recognized Philippines needed support, it has one of the most vibrant Blogger Based Blogging Communities right now.

Like i said it got some Pinoy friends and i am even making a trip over there, so i am not just saying it just because saying. they do have a huge Blogger Based Blogging Community.

*Update*: yes, i do know i am being way too sarcastic, cynic and ironic for my own good. it is part of a sense of humor.

*Update 2*;  i posted a clarification here

Filipino is the English translation of Tagalog.

They're just the same.

We indeed have a very active blogging community - nationwide!

Filipino is our national language, Tagalog is just one of the many dialects we have =)

@Filipinayzd:

that makes no sense, i mean, i know what you mean but i find that weird.

i do have added a new post entry clearing up my stance on the whole

Tagalog-Filipino ordeal.


Thanks for visiting.

I remember my teacher in grade one saying that Filipino pertains to the "people" and PILIPINO is the language.

On the growing online pinoy community blogs out on the net you can never really count them. Even the expats are having a go on it.
