Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2011 nominations

A quick pause from my PALAWAN SERIES first as I want to nominate my bets for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2011. Influential Blogger is a writing project aimed at identifying new and emerging blogs who are making an impact to its readers in 2011. After much thought, here are my nominees.

1. The BUM Upstairs
This is the english blog of Arvin Bautista. I thought it's just the english version of his tagalog humor blog but through time it has evolved into something distinct and interesting. In the bum upstairs, topics are diverse from travel, events and photography. His integration of good photos in every posts catches my attention as they really compliment the blog entries.

2. - a blog that shares knowledge and useful information about blogging, social media, and how to engage your blogs properly online. Newbies would find it very helpful. I do.
3. Certified Foodies

Certified Foodies is a food blog by Pinoy foodies blankPixels (Mhel), Kien and their friends. We share our own recipes, foodie discoveries and adventures as we challenge our taste buds to learn more about cooking, taste dishes from different food places/restaurants and different ingredients.

I am a frustrated food blogger so this blog is perfect for me. Time to spark that love for food and the knack of writing about it.


4. Sleek in the City

 Sleek in the City is the Sleek Folk's Guide to the Best of Manila + Beyond. I write about events, food, men's style and travel.I somewhat see myself in this blog. I see how a young man explores the city and what it has to offer, shares his tales. It is a testament of how a person enjoys himself and not be selfish to keep it to himself alone. His stories are celebrations of life, things that should be cherished and at the same time shared

sleek in the city blog

5. is an up-and-coming lifestyle blog own by JayL Aquino. It is just a 9-month old blog but already averaging 35,000 views a month! Ranked by as one of the top 500,000 sites in the world and ranked as the #3,395 website in the Philippines. It already received a page rank of three, 218 email subscribers, 125 NetworkedBlogs followers,1,258 Facebook fans and 1,758 Twitter followers :) 


Here's my 2nd batch of nominations for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2011. I understand that one can only nominate 10 blogs so this will be my last. Too bad coz I have a lot of blogs in mind. To all those who I have not nominated, my apologies. For now, here's my final list.

emerging blog_the lostboy

6.Lloyd Lostboy --is a Wandering Wonder Kid from MNL. Professional Jetsetter and Backpacker. Blogger Wannabe. Boyfriend Material. Traveled in a number of cities looking for love. Also scoping out for the best attractions, best meals, and best lodging. Life is one long vacation! >> ok na ba yan or you want a mor serious one haha

emerging blog_the journalistic view
7.The Journalistic View is the author's bridge in pursuing a noble advocacy of informing the public of current events which may affect our daily lives and sharing unbiased views on sizzling issues thus giving people a wider perspective. The author always believe what Thomas Jefferson once said, "An informed citizenry is the only true repository of the public will."--A blog By Divine Caraecle

8.MY PAINTED LIPS--this blog is more than just a beauty/ cosmetics blog. It's all about lipstick, yes, but it is also about being and being pretty. Having four kids (while breastfeeding the youngest) without a helper, maintaining more than 10 blogs is not an easy task. It's very exhausting and I am not complaining. The thing is, with the many things that I needed to do, I also have to set aside a time for myself. And with all the things that needed to be done, it's like next to impossible. I found my me time through lipstick. I enjoy applying lipstick to my face.. and seeing how this shade or that transforms me from being a mommy to being a woman.

Lipstick is a main stay cosmetics in almost every woman's kikay kit, and it is also one of the most overlooked cosmetics (getting lipstick shades that is not compatible with the skin etc..). I hope with this blog, I will be able to influence other moms (and woman as well) to try out experimenting with lipstick and how this little stick can make a big difference. 

9.THE BACKPACKMAN--This blog details the travel of the blogger Anciro Romana. He features almost every place that he has visited in his journey to discover the beauty of Philippine Islands.

emerging blog_girl_kuripot

  15. Hi! I was wondering if you could take a look at Mommy Survival Guide and consider to add it to your list. It offers tips on parenting, home management, relationships, and other issues that parents face everyday. I started the blog because I know how tough parenthood can be - that's based on my experience with my three babies. It has been cited in a number of parenting websites and it made me win a SMART TV! I hope you can look at it. Thanks!

  16. WOW! im looking forward for this event.
