Top 10 Influential Blogs for 2010

Monday, August 30, 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 -
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 -
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 -
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.
