I was born in Cagayan de Oro City. Therefore my native dialect is BISAYA or Visayan in English terms. Most of the time, we are always laughed at because when we speak in English we have an intonation that is so distinct. Well most of us have it while others don’t. Nevertheless, I am proud of my dialect.
And since I am patriotic in so many ways, to my country the Philippines, to my hometown – Cagayan de Oro City, to my island – Mindanao, I am also to my dialect BISAYA. So as a sign of patriotism and pride, I have created the community Bisdak Bloggers. This community started as a group in Facebook and then we eventually branched out into a community blog as of yesterday, March 19, 2011, through the support of my fellow bisdak; thus claiming the domain www.bisdakbloggers.net!!
Bisdak is a word coined from Bisayang Dako. Dako means big. So when you say BISDAK, you refer to a person who’s native dialect is BISAYA. So, the name Bisdak Bloggers Network was formed to symbolize a network of people who speaks BISAYA and who BLOGS at the same time.
So, I am inviting you to come and visit our community blog at www.bisdakbloggers.net! Warning, we write in BISAYA most of the time, you might not understand some words. 😀
I am also inviting fellow BISDAK bloggers to come and join us! Let us have fun and be proud of our native dialect!!
