It’s that time of the year again when the blogging community votes for their top 10 emerging influential blogs.
This will be my third year to participate in this writing project and for 2010, I decided to vote as early as possible. 😛
Pardon my laziness, if you could call it that way, but instead of waiting for other participants to make their vote so I could discover “vote-worthy” blogs, I’m taking the initiative to be among those who’d submit their entry in the first week.
And so, here are my votes and why I’m voting for them. In no particular order:
- The Thirsty Blogger – yes, this blog is still eligible to join. Yay! The cut off for this year is March 2009 and this blog started in May 2009. And I do hope you vote for this blog as well – one of the pioneers of its kind, a drink blog that is. 😀
- Pixel Quotes – so okay, I’m officially launching MY photoblog to the community by voting it here. This one’s no ordinary photo blog I should say. Go ahead and take a peak.
- Bongga Ba – an events and lifestyle blog and the only blog daring enough to post photos of me while having my acne pricked! LOL
- Don Trivino – I’m voting for this photo blog so he can finally transfer to me the full ownership of the Triple Chocolate Maple Passion photo I used. He actually took that shot and posted it first here 😀
- Crisendo Photography – the photo blog of good friend, Crisendo. He promised to vote for my blogs so I’m voting for his as well. 😛 But aside from this reason, I’ve always admired his Navotas photos that’s why I believe he’s worth my vote. By the way, look at one of his posts and you’ll see his archives below. This blog started in June 2009 so he’s eligible.
And that’s it… for now. I’m opening my last five slots to those who would leave a comment below and give a good reason why I should vote for their blog.
Here are my last five votes. Sorry it took a while, deciding was really hard… really… really, really.
- NomNom Club – because he likes feeding me Red Ribbon cakes… LOL. ‘Nuf said. 😛
- Project 52 Weeks – because she promised me a starring role in one of her upcoming independent films… Hah! 😀
- Foodie Manila – because I owe him one for teaching me how to use Foursquare during our drinking session in Ronza 😉
- Simply Rins – because she’s the only person I know who blogs about nail art… and also because she’s a long-time good friend 😀
- When In Manila – because I am truly amazed at how Vince took the Philippine blogging community by storm – from nobody to everybody’s friend. Hah… sipsip amf… paki-bati na lang ako sa show mo 😛
This writing project would not be possible without its sponsors: Events and Corporate Video, Budget hotel in Makati, Pinoy Party Food, Copyediting Services, PR Agency Philippines, Budget Travel Philippines, Send Gifts to the Philippines, Black Friday Deals, Roomrent – units for rent, Search Profile Index, and Corporate Events Organizer.
Moreover, I would like to encourage all bloggers to please join the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs Writing Project 2010 today (so you can vote for my blogs as well 😛 ). Visit here to learn more.
So I guess the only thing that’s left for me to say now is to explain the photo above. Or should I really? 😀

Thanks for all the suggestions, I’ve picked a couple and added them to my shortlist actually.

Hopefully, you can add me to your list as well. I started out early this year in the hope of trying to promote and share to my friends the really cool finds that we have here in Manila. 🙂 Think of it as a jump start for the newcomers to the fashion or beauty industry. 🙂
Hey! 🙂 I’m inviting you to visit tara-na.com. It’s a food and travel blog I created to motivate me to explore new places. This blog is inspired by a goal which is to travel the world bit by bit. I would start from my province and then progress to neighboring provinces to nearby countries and so on. 🙂 I wish to wake up someday and just suddenly realize that I have already achieved my goal. So yeah, it’s a long term project for myself. 🙂 You may want to consider it for your pick of the top 10 emerging influential blogs of 2010. Thank you! 🙂 And cheers to this writing project!
Goodluck to your blogs too.. they deserve to win.

Fitz I noticed na for your choices mostly photoblogs. I am assuming you are a visual person? Hehehe… then maybe http://www.foodiemanila.com deserves a vote too? THanks!
Hi! :] If you’re list is not complete yet, Please check out my blog at JAY-ELX.BLOGSPOT.COM
Started as a personal in September of 2009, this blog already received more than 25,000 hits according to StatCounter. Gained a Pagerank 3 and an Alexa Rank of 6,320 in PH (1,229,308 Worldwide) It’s always at the upper Top 15 of TopBlogs.com.ph in it’s category. With 98 blog post, this blog already received 121 blog comments.
Thru the Manila Bloggers Network, I got to access premiere nights invites and press screenings of major international films & local indie films which I get to post in this blog. Also because of my blog, I was able to meet the PR of Walt Disney Films, Columbia Pictures & Warner Bros and he invited me to attend their movie premiere so I can do a movie review in my blog. I was also invited by Star Cinema to attend their presscons, for the 3rd time now.
To prove that I don’t made this blog to gain money from it, I only put ads on it this month July 2010, after almost 9 months 🙂 Hope you can consider my blog 😀
Ako! nominate ko blog ko.
Kapal kasi muka ko. hehehe. pero kidding aside. Siguro kasi random lang ang blog ko at kahit pano namamaintain ko. un lang. 😀
You might want to consider including “Simply Rins” in your list! 🙂 It’s my personal blog that journals tidbits of my life, but primarily showcases my love for nail art. I personally see painting my nails and decorating it as a unique expression of my mood, creativity, and gives me a sense of individuality. I rarely see girls in our country that’s confident to wear nail art because society places a stereotype on it. I’d like to change this view through my blog. Wearing nail art or having polished nails does not mean a girl is “maarte” or “malandi”. It also doesn’t necessarily mean that she doesn’t do household chores. She’s simply being a girl and embracing it. 🙂
Hala, napahaba! Thanks!
I’ve completed my votes. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
Sorry for those I was not able to include – all are noteworthy and I’ve added all of you to my feed subscription. Keep up the good work and always have fun blogging!
Hahaha! Salamatz for nominating NomNomClub.com 🙂
