I’ve been crazy about scuba diving for some months now, but I’m still very much a WordPress fanatic. Take a look at this dive photo of me and my underwater WordPress notebook, shot by the awesome diver-photographer, Bing Peña last 16 July 2011 at Angel’s Cove.
No, the guys at Automattic haven’t come up with a waterproof notebook — I just put a WP sticker on my Titan diver’s notebook, which I use for documenting stuff underwater. But hey, that would be a nice schwag for diver-bloggers, no?
Speaking of which, I’ve started another WordPress-powered blog, Scuba DAVAO, which is open to contributions from Dabawenyo divers or divers who love the Gulf of Davao.
Davao Gulf is home to dozens of dive spots. But more importantly, it is the habitat of thousands and thousands of marine species. The sad fact is, the marine ecosystem beneath the waters of the gulf is steadily being eroded. That’s why I’ve taken up the challenge to help preserve the gulf’s marine life through Scuba DAVAO, and through another movement called Save the Philippine Seas (whose site is also powered by WordPress).
