Metblogs recently extended its reach into its 57th city and the consciousness of San Diegans. Now San Diego Metblogs will be even easier to follow, as it has its own Twitter feed!

Are you in San Diego and have a Twitter account? Or maybe just miss San Diego and its perfect weather? (Yes, that’s a dig at you, East Coast.) Want to read local blog posts from 14 of the finest bloggers (more added every day) in America’s Finest City? Then just start following @SDMetblogs, my friend.

We’ll serve up local happenings, quirky observations, bargains, and fun things to do with a decidedly San Diego flavor. You know, like a fish taco. Okay, and some crazy-old-man-next-door-style rants. You know it will happen. Either way, you’ll get a tweet sent to your mobile phone or computer whenever there’s a new post to read.

So no more hanging around my front door demanding more blog posts, okay? Follow @SDMetblogs instead, and get offa my lawn!

Taa-daa! San Diego’s metblog is live!

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.
