Congratulations to the Winners of the Emerging Influential Blogs for 2014

The 2nd Digital Influencers Marketing Summit was held last September 13 at the SMX Convention Center.

I had a blast last year, but missed this year's festivities because of a conflict in schedule. It would have been fun to chat and re-connect with the speakers, most of whom are my friends/acquaintances.

As part of the tradition, The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2014 were announced during the summit.

Props to this year's winners:

I realized that I had nominated 7 out of the 10 winners. :D

Last year, one of my blogs was included in the list: (blatant bragging here). I'm working on launching a new blog by October 2014. So I'm hoping to be a part of next year's batch of nominees! :)

Congratulations to Janette Toral for another successful event!

Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2014 Writing Project

Once again, it's time to nominate for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2014 Writing Project 

This year's project is brought to you by:

There are a heck of a lot of interesting new blogs this year, but I had to narrow them down to ten:

Very interesting topics, from friendship to relationships to travel destinations. Plus, I love the easy-to-navigate layout.

This blog highlights news, events, and current issues worth thinking and talking about.

As a semi-health-conscious dude, I do look at product labels to check the ingredients and nutrition information. But I have to be at the store to do that. With this blog, I can browse for the data from home prior to going to the supermarket.

The mouth-watering photos are very effective in causing my belly to rumble with anticipation. Cool logo as well.

Lip-smacking blog! We're talking about desserts here! Now I want some buko pandan.

I like the practical tips about budgeting, decluttering, recycling. Very neatly laid out. The short paragraphs and bullet points are perfect for people with short attention spans (I'm referring to myself!)

Blogs about making money through "rakets" or "sidelines" will always have a following.

This prolific blog has churned out over 500 blog posts in seven months! More content means more stuff to read, and more opportunities to influence readers.

This blog is dedicated to sharing recipes and cooking tips simplified enough even for kitchen dummies (like me).

This blog shares juicy inside stories from one of the largest - and still growing - industries in the modern era. And who doesn't like juicy stories?

X-MEN: Days of Future Past

What would you correct from your past to save the future?

If I could go back in time, I would not undo any of my mistakes, but... 

I would persuade my "old" self to develop the habit of documenting all the mistakes I made (within the same day, if possible), and reflect on them. Of course, I should document all the pleasant things that went my way as well.

This simple habit alone would accelerate my progress in becoming a better person.

With that, I wouldn't even need to "save the future" because it would take care of itself.


As an X-men fan, I'm looking forward to watching "Days of Future Past"!

Swapping An Old Car For A New Foton?

This is my pick-up truck. I want a new one because this one is so... flat.

I've been hearing good things about Foton, so let's check out the options.

The Foton MPX, with 12 seats.

The Foton View, good for 15 people.

An LPG powered forklift. Wait, what? How'd that get in here?

And this gorgeous thing is the Foton Thunder.

With a Cummins 2.8 liter CRDi diesel engine capable of producing 160 hp and 380 N-m of torque, it's as durable and as muscular as any other truck in its class.

But... it costs way less than the others!

The price difference - and therefore, savings - is enough to cover my parking, maintenance, and fuel expenses... for OVER a year!

Value for money, that is what I look for when buying a vehicle.

And to me, value for money is what the Foton brand represents.

So, I encourage you to join Foton’s Big Show 2013′s Grand Launch at the World Trade Center on October 25 and witness the launching of the new FOTON View, the 1st dancing wheel loader in the Philippines.

Get a chance to trade-in your old vehicles from October 26 to 27 and avail of BIG DISCOUNTS and BIG REWARDS when purchasing FOTON vehicles at the event.

Receive amazing giveaways just for showing up and get even more when you test drive their passenger vehicles or attend the forums and trainings.

On top of that, there's no entrance fee
