It all started with an email from Clair, who learned about it from Ramil's "Filipina," who got the idea from Ergoe's "Result-Oriented," who picked it up from Milky Soft's "Filipina and the Philippines," the one that started it all.
And now it has become a movement. With its own logo! Even Global Voices Online has taken note of the effort in its "Monday World Blog Roundup." The following are the blogs that I know of that have entries on the results that appear when the word "Filipina" is Googled:
- Blah!: "Google for the word “Filipina” and see what turns up" and "Thoughts on being a Filipina"
- Iblog: "The Google Zeitgeist on 'Filipina'"
W3O: "What is a Filipina?"
- To the Tale: "Stereotypically Speaking..."
- Sassy Lawyer: "What is a Filipina?"
- Drakulita: "Filipina!"
- Jardine Davies' Every Other Rambling: "Google Keyword: Filipina"
- Tigastitig: "Filipina"
- Information Narcosis: "The Truth About the Filipina"
- Snarkmarket: "Electronic Wars of Self-Representation"
- Global Voices Online: "Thursday World Blog Roundup"
- Teacher Sol: "I am a Filipina teacher" and "Yan ang Pinay"
- Milky Soft: "Small Steps"
- Balay ni Bambit: See sidebar
- Beth's Blog: "Google Bombing Campaign: Filipina"
- The Ignatian Perspective: "Using 'Filipina' Not A Dilemma"
- Ergoe: "Yan ang Pinay!"

I have also written "The Filipina in Cyberspace," "Images of the Filipina Online," and "Sacha Chua: Filipina."
So why am I doing all of this? I owe a lot to Filipinas, especially Filipina librarians, and my mom!
