Iloilo has been a source of pride to the writers and contributors of Our Iloilo. Its main author, owner, and webmaster of this site, Lornajane Altura, has been itching to start a blog ever since she has gotten involved in the world of online writing.
This blog will always be grateful to Mrs. Evelyn Palec, Lornajane's former co-teacher at the Jalandoni Memorial National High School for giving her the ideas on the blog itself. This blog would not have been possible without the contextual (and grammatical?) suggestions of her friend and co-teacher Mrs. Ma. Cecilia Simmons who has been a big help when she started it out with online writing.
The writers and contributors of this blog would like to show to the world the beauty, heritage, and culture that Iloilo has and would like to "borrow" the present city government's slogan "Dakbanwa sang Iloilo: My City, My Pride."
It is our pride to be Ilonggos.
May this be your source of pride, too!
