San Diego is the second-largest city in California, and a techie magnet by any standards – often nicknamed Silicon Beach. So I was amazed to see that our fair city was not represented with a metroblog here. How could that be? If local bloggers were snakes – ouch, another one just bit me.

“Well, no one from your town has stepped up,” said Sean Bonner. Oh, well, if THAT’S all it takes…by evening’s end, 13 SD bloggers had volunteered.

I just started a movie blog of my own (http://www.thepegisin.com) about a month ago, so I did hear some snarky comments about how ironic it was that the n00b would get this thing going. But you know, I think blogging is a lot like being a clerk at Tower Records. Show up 3 days in a row, and they make you a supervisor.

Expect this space to bring you quirky, offbeat observations by San Diego blogerati, as well as alerts about upcoming San Diego events, mostly likely about beer, noms, movies, music, art, photography, social media, and probably more beer. Bonfires. Tweetups. Stuff like that.

Want to be an author? You must live in San Diego, and you should probably contact me soon, as I hear they will cap that list at about 20. Read these guidelines, then email me at thepegisin@cox.net.

    I am glad you already warned them about the "quirky offbeat" part! LOL

    Right? It’s our metblog and we’ll be quirky if we want to. As if you or I could be any other way!

    Welcome!!!! I didn’t realize you guys had been writing for so long! Are you going to do an official "we’re live" post since today is the "official" day of start? As an OC Metblogger, I can’t wait to read about our prettier, WAY cooler city to the south!

    Congrats and welcome from one of the LA Metbloggers! It looks like you’ve got some great posts up so far. Can’t wait to dig in!

    Hi Dave! Well, I considered that, but our bloggers are adding posts so fast, I thought it might get lost in the shuffle. I kinda like the subjects I’ve been seeing. And our first post has all that TAA-DAA info. Thanks for the welcome! Thanks to you, too, Jodi!
