Rosarian Blogs Search

Using Google, I went searching for Rosarian Blogs -- blogs whose authors talked about or made mention of Rosario, Batangas in their posts -- while waiting for my rice to cook. It's almost lunch time. I'm hungry and yet surprisingly, I still find time for this kind of blogging churvas.

Here's 10 of what I found:

Rosario Batangas Links: My Favorites

In two days, I've joined two online communities of Rosarians. I am including their links in this blog. This is in line with my goal of being a catalyst for the creation of a network of sites, blogs, posts, trivia and any other means by which anything related to Rosario, Batangas is ever mentioned anywhere online.

I'm also including two sites which I think illustrates the future of what is possible when a Rosarian put his or her mind into something that he or she believes in.

I'm impressed with what I've found in the personal page of John Mark Zuño de Leon of the Zuño-de Leon Family website in Tripod and in Joice Anne Evangelista Carrido's blog Rain.

If you have your own favorite Rosario, Batangas websites or blogs, just tell me by posting a comment here or sending me an email with your suggestion.

New Section: Barangay Clusters, Rosario, Batangas

Just added the following section in the Wikipedia article about Rosario, Batangas:

Barangay Clusters

For purposes of community organizing and effective delivery of social development projects, the Office for Sustainable Development under supervision of the Office of the Municipal Mayor in 1995, conveniently divided the 48 barangays into 8 barangay clusters with 6 member barangays each.[2]

Barangay Cluster South East I
Antipolo, Calantas, Leviste, Matamis, Palakpak, Tulos

Barangay Cluster North East II
Macalamcam B, Nasi, Pinagsibaan, Putingkahoy, Salao, San Isidro

Barangay Cluster East III
Bayawang, Bulihan, Cahigam, Lumbangan, Mabunga, Mayuro

Barangay Cluster East IV
Alupay, Balibago, Mabato, Macalamcam A, Maligaya, Natu

Barangay Cluster Central V
Bagong Pook, Baybayin, Mavalor, San Carlos, San Jose, Tiquiwan

Barangay Cluster West Central VI
Poblacion D, Poblacion E, Itlugan, Maalas-as, Namuco, Namunga

Barangay Cluster East Central VII
Poblacion A, Poblacion B, Poblacion C, Quilib, San Roque, Sta. Cruz

Barangay Cluster West VIII

This system was patterned after the resolutions traditionally passed by the Sangguniang Bayan as part of its organizational plan following the general elections when new members are elected into office for a new term. Consequently, the barangay cluster arrangement was adopted and served as the framework for land use development strategies enunciated under the Comprehensive Land Use Plan of Rosario, Batangas for Planning Period 2000-2010 (CLUP).[3]
