It was in 2009 when I first joined the search for the top 10 influential blogs. Back then, I was just a newbie in the blogging world.  I was eager to learn the tricks of the trade so to speak so I spent endless hours pouring over entries, reading the posts of seasoned bloggers and their choices & predictions of the next big thing in the blogging world. I also have to say that I  was inspired to continue and pursue this passion after reading the works of my fellow newbies at that time who were part of the nominated list.
To date, the writing project still continues to support new and emerging blogs who are making a great  impact on their readers. It still continues to recognize blogs which were created to serve the purpose of not just informing the public of  both trivial and critical issues/concerns but influencing the way they think and do things too.
The past year saw the birth of blogs worthy of being called emerging influential blogs. Here are my top picks:
Vivi’s Random Ramblings.  It has some of the most beautiful travel photographs.  The author has brought me to numerous places around the world with her photos and travel notes. She  never fails to highlight the best the place has to offer.  She literally gives me a glimpse of the world.
The Purple Doll. I love the sincerity the author shows everytime she makes a review on a restaurant or food. The food photography is amazing as well, the author always captures the essence of the food in print and in writing.
Single Mom, Super Mom. I am inspired by the resiliency and tenacity that the author shows which are  reflected in her writing. I like how she never lets her situation gets in the way of her enjoying life to the fullest. Truly inspiring indeed.
Chilipina. Probably the only new beauty and fashion blog that I religiously read. I love her make up, particularly her lipstick reviews. I also like that she shares tips on how to look good given the plump figure.
Rappler.  I have to admit, I check out rappler first before I head to philstar and manila bulletin online for trending news. I like how the articles are written in different perspective since rappler is run by a group of veteran journalists. I alos like how they cover almost everything on business, lifestyle, the nation, technology, sports, etc.
Eccentric Yet Happy. I get up to date with the latest lifestyle and entertainment news here as well.  Author is clearly in the loop of things.
Sining Factory.  I get my culture and art fix from this blog.  It has interesting do it yourself art projects as well and infos on the latest events and happenings in the field of arts and culture.
Filipino Bloggers Worldwide.  A community of bloggers from all over the world which was created to help its members gain exposure/traffic. This blogsite is also a place where bloggers can get help in  ironing out the kinks in their blogs.  This community has greatly helped me a lot.
Pinabili Lang Ng Suka. I also like the author’s own brand of wit and humor,  every post also makes for a truly fascinating, interesting and fun read.
So Gelleesh.  Pure girly fun. This is where you can get your daily dose of kikay fashion, beauty, and lifestyle reviews and updates. Reminds me of glitters, pink, and flowers.
To check out the other blogs making waves this year, head over to the Influential Blogger website.  This writing project will not be possible without the support of sponsors such as Tof Salcedo, Philippine data center, Philippine online shopping, Manila Standard Today, DigitalFilipino Club, Search Profile Index, and many more.

  1. awww now ko lang eto nakita.. salamat! kahit hindi ako nakapasok sa top 10 I’m still happy to be nominated. thank you so much for considering me. 😉

  2. I have been considering getting into doing Search Engine Optimization lately. I believe that SEO is most important to enhance the value of blog and can help improve the development of the blog into a more positive direction. I agree with you. So this topic will clear many points why a new blog hits by reader. Actually it is more productive and this will work out better for me as well as for the publisher.
