Emerging Influential Pinoy Blogs

Whoa! I almost missed this year's writing project again (like what I did last year)! 

One of the instructions on http://www.influentialblogger.net/2010/05/join-top-10-emerging-influential-blogs.html states that "Any blog in the world can be picked", and I've encountered several fascinating foreign websites, but I'd prefer to focus on Pinoy blogs. =)

1) When in Manila - http://www.wheninmanila.com/
I keep going back for more of their well-written articles and laugh-out-loud videos.

2) Nomnom Club - http://nomnomclub.com/
If you can use your less-than-a-year-old blog as leverage to organize parties/events and have somebody else pay for it, I would definitely consider you influential.

3) Thirsty Blogger - http://www.thirstyblogger.com/
One of those "Why didn't I think of that?" blog niches, further enhanced by skillful photography.

4) Ganda Ever So Much - http://www.gandaeversomuch.com/
Written by someone who is completely true to himself. No pretensions at all.

5) The Blogging Advertiser - http://thebloggingadvertiser.com/
Very informative blog which is in the process of bridging the wiiiide information gap between clueless bloggers and clueless advertisers. We're all clueless!

6) Sex and Sensibilities - http://sexandsensibilities.com/
Ana Santos pulls out all her professional writing skills on her blog. Nothing raunchy at all, just solid information about sexual health.

7) Facebuko - http://facebuko.com/
Not just a hilarious blog, it actually connects different aspects of Pinoy pop culture, creating  unusual snapshots of Pinoy showbiz "history as it unfolds".

8) Art of Changemaking - http://artofchangemaking.com/
Truly inspiring blog because she doesn't just write about change, she makes it happen!

9) Rina Alcantara - http://www.rina-alcantara.com/
Started out as a personal blog, well, it still is, but Rina is now devoting more time and effort in promoting individuality through art, specifically, nail art.

10) The Creative Dork - http://thecreativedork.com/
If you dare to use the word "creative" to describe yourself, you better have the ammo to back that claim. And I'd say that the author of this blog certainly has the right to call himself one. Check out his work!

Whew! I thought it would be easy. WRONG! That list took quite a while for me to put together.

Thanks to the following sponsors for supporting the project:
