I’ve been meaning to make my nominations for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009 earlier last week but I was out of town and had no access to internet for a couple of days. It’s a good thing I’m back just in time for the deadline of submissions. So, let me present my choices
A blog authored by Tyrone Solee, a Math degree holder from Ateneo de Manila University, that is focused on Financial Education. He talks about investments, financial concepts and entrepreneurship. Highly recommended emerging blog.
A personal blog of Ada, a registered nurse, which features reviews, current news and press events. She is also one of the three people behind the highly recommended Friendster Layouts and Glitter Graphics source Vixenart.net. She’s very friendly and has a cute sister.
A travel blog by the original Batang Yagit, Winston Almendras. His personal blog won the 2008 Blogger’s Choice award for having a unique voice, being original and mostly fun. Add all of that and transform it into a travel focused blog and Lakwatsero is what you get.
4. Patay Gutom
A collaborative food blog run by passionate and dead hungry bloggers from different key places in the country and abroad. Founded by Jehzlau with Winston and Andrew, they have proven their capacity to create buzz and of course, create a legion of Patay Gutom fans. Each and every post are fresh and will definitely make you hungry.
A blog that was started by passionate Cebuano bloggers, including myself, promoting the rich cultures and hidden treasures of Cebu. I myself has fallen inlove with Cebu and there’s no reason for you not to.
If you love reading The Onion, which is a satire website that features fake US news, then you will love Good Times Manila. It’s almost the same humor but features a local flavor featuring local “fake” news. Check it out and have a good time.
7. Focal Glass
A personal blog of Evanjohnn, a Cebu Photoblogger, who is very passionate in everything that he does. His blog is both light and fun and features a lot of events.
If you read the crazy ramblings of Maddox, then you’ll love this blog. Another satire humor blog, but takes a different witty approach guaranteeing you lots of laughter. If you’re bored and need a few laughs, you know where to go.
9. Flair Candy
A personal and photo blog by Hannah Villasis, a Certified Professional Accountant who lives her life passionately. She is into traveling and photography, and also my kababayan from Bacolod City.
Another personal blog, this time by Bryan Karl who is another Cebu blogger. He is a tech enthusiast taking up computer science in University of the Philippines Cebu. He blogs mostly about current events, opinions and press events.
