Top 10 Influential Blogs for 2010

Since its inception, I've been joining the Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010 Writing Project.  Discovering new blogs is both a joy and to be enjoyed.  Having said that, here's my personal list for the Top 10 Influential Blogs for 2010:

Aileen & I got married the day after Christmas last year.  But months before our wedding and during our numerous wedding planning sessions, we took creative breaks from wedding discussions and talked about one of our favorite passions: blogging.   Aileen already had a wedding blog way back even before we knew each other. So we thought of conceptualizing a joint blog where we could tell our stories as newlyweds and how life is as a newly married couple.  It's not a mushy blog.  It's actually about day to day discoveries of living in a new home.

I already have a music site but it's catered specifically for Pinoy Music.  Aside from facebook, I didn't have any other site to share my non-OPM interests.  And since, I never had a video blog yet, I thought of putting up Version Mine.   It's a music video blog catered to amateurs who perform their own versions of popular songs, whether it may be an acoustic version, a piano version, an acapella version or a one-man band version.     You'll be amazed at how great these people render their own versions, sometimes even better than the originals.  And this is how the likes of Charice and Arnel Pineda both entered into stardom.

Having attended several events and gone to so many places and restaurants over the years,  I discovered that I had a huge archive of photos.  And a lot of them are pictures of food.   So I thought of putting them to good use and sharing them to everyone online by creating a photo blog catered to foods.   Hopefully, you'll get hungry while viewing.

I visit this blog when I don't want to think. Whether it's witty, funny, corny, silly or downright mind-boggling, 

it's an easy laugh when reading these silly quotes. I learned about this here

"Kung ang malaking langaw ay bangaw... ang malaking longganisa ay bongganisa."

  • Jejemon World 1.0 - http://www.jejejeje.com
It's not a jejemon blog but a blog about jejemon, sharing jejemon resources online and some jejemon sightings.   Love 'em or hate 'em, they've made noise in their own unique way.

  • Paranaque City Life - http://paranaquelife.blogspot.com
Since I got married, I've lived only in Paranaque for 8 months.  I didn't know much about the city and was at a lost at first.  But thanks to this blog, I got some tips and what, who and where on things I needed to know.  It got me to know more about the new city I live in.

  • Tea, Completely - http://www.teacompletely.com
I love tea.  And I guess every other tea lover would show interest in reading a tea blog.  The great thing is that they review all kinds of tea: hot, cold, milk, brisk, instant, brewed, powdered... you name it, they've talked about it.  That's why this is one blog I frequent.

Aileen & I were newbies at cooking when we got married.  I still am, but Aileen's cooking career is a success story.  And she's been getting a lot of instant cooking tips from our blogger friend Ria.  That's how I know that Ria is a food and cook expert.  And if she could give us goldmine tips outside her blog, what more treasure tips could she share with us.  Her blog is like opening a recipe treasure chest.  Leave it open by bookmarking it for reference.

I always make it a point to be on the lookout for breakout music blogs, meaning, music blogs that have huge potential of growing.  I discovered this blog through the creator himself Rab who told us about it when we were in Cebu.  As soon as I got back to Manila, I visited his blog and fell in love with it.   His efforts to choose a song request, study the song, record his own rendition and finally uploading it on youtube for all to watch is truly a self-expression.  And pouring your soul into each song whether you hit each note perfectly or not is a sign of courage and serves merit in my book.   I hope to hear more songs from Rab and who knows, he may even be discovered one day !

Admitting you're fat is the first step.  Doing something about it comes next.  Telling the world about it is optional, but this girl blogs about every step and thing she does to lose weight.   You can check out her progress as she documents each day by describing what she did or what happened to reach her goal of shedding pound after pound.   Not only is it interesting, but it's an inspiration to see someone like her achieve her goal.

Hostage Caker

Delicious to taste
Overdose of sweet intake
Can't eat it as much as rice
Otherwise, a diabetic will rise.

Born To Remember

No recall of what transpired
No experience to tell
The only thing you'll remember precise
Is the date you started life.

Wide-Eyed Zombie

Less rest, too little shut-eye
Longer day, too long awake
What your body can take
Can't go beyond the limit you create

I'm Back !

If you've noticed, I haven't been able to publish new posts for the past month.   My main blog has been on hiatus for several reasons.  

  • I got a new job and had to adjust to waking up early as opposed to staying up late.  
  • I also had to catch up on a lot of book reading to prepare for the new job.  
  • My desktop got busted.  I had to replace the motherboard and then suddenly my Windows 7 got amnesia the moment I replaced its motherboard.  And so I had to reinstall Windows.  All my programs aren't complete yet.   
  • I also handled 2 clients for their online campaigns and it took some of my blogging time away from me.  
  • My car got busted too.  Of all places, it had to fail me on the expressway.  Good thing I was stuck in traffic so it didn't look like I wasn't moving.  I finally got it to start just enough to get it to the repair shop.  Just barely 4 months when it checked out of the Toyota hospital, it's there once again, just in a different branch.
  • I had to travel from Paranaque to Marikina City for a couple of times to get some of my mails that are still being sent there and some stuff I needed in preparation for my new job.
  • Since I have no car, I commute to and from work, which takes more time on the road instead of in front of my desktop.  Plus all that commute is tiring and I kinda end up too tired to blog when I get home.
  • Rainy season.   Somehow, I find it hard to blog when there are heavy rains and lightning.  I guess it's a post-trauma effect of Typhoon Ondoy.
All this caused the following:
  • tremendous e-mail backlog
  • tremendous blog backlog
  • tremendous website update backlog
  • tremendous book reading backlog
But a blogger is always a blogger and if haven't heard from me, it's just that I haven't posted the stories I wanted to share.  Check back and I'll keep you guys posted.

In the meantime, you can also check out a couple of my other blogs.

Loyal Mail

Around the world in an instant 
But couldn't find its destination 
The address doesn't match a home 
The package can't be owned.

I paid for the send-off price 
I get the same package twice 
I leave it unopened 
For there is no surprise.

Terminally Late

Several planes have taken aflight
Travelling at breaking speeds
Feet are grounded, nowhere do I go
They are airborne kilometers away, I'm still at ground zero.

Bak Chor Mee

Singaporean style noodles with fish, dumplings, chicken bits, mushrooms and cabbage submerged in hot spicy soup

Zombie Alert

Staying awake when you've just taken sleeping pills
Is just as tough as trying to sleep after 5 cups of coffee
Fight the sleep, forego the rest
Zombie you become and alertness is your test.

Huge Banana Split

Room Service

House away from home 
In a land far away 
Zero is the magic number 
For attention during my temporary stay.
