Living in a rapidly developing country like the Philippines, we are still sadly lacking in proper information dissemination activities. With blogs, I get to learn of hole-in-the-wall restaurants, magnificent untouched natural wonders, and simply the trappings of everyday existence in the country.
As such, it is quite refreshing to have writing projects like the Influential Blogger's Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2011 writing project, with the aim to showcase the blogosphere's emerging blogs and new sources of information.
That being said, I now present my top emerging influential blogs for 2011 (the initial list)...
1. The Average Jane
Very shameless plug here. But yes, I do would like to be considered as a emerging influential blogger. The Average Jane is about the mundane, ordinary things -- a lifestyle blog but less "mainstream." While others exalt Php800 flipflops, I write about the Php250 alternative. I write about the nondescript hole-in-the-walls and other ordinary stuff that others may overlook. I choose to view my ordinary existence in extraordinary ways. =)
2. Tales from the Tummy
I love a food blog with really good pictures. You're trying to entice people to eat at establishments, hence I believe that pictures definitely says wonders. And such is the appeal of Tales from the Tummy for me. Yum!
3. Blogger Manila
Blogger Manila is a good source for everything related to the blogosphere, social media and other online pursuits. There are interesting tips and event highlights for die-hard bloggers to enjoy. Definitely a must read for those starting out.
4. The Tummy Traveler
The Tummy Traveler details not just food, but also the blogger's travels accompanied with very interesting snapshots and descriptions. Its a good go-to source to whet your gastronomical and traveling appetites.
5. Make More Money Online (M3O)
M3O is an interesting blog that details tips and ways on how to make money online. It's a good read even if you're not seriously thinking of working online full-time.
Libotero is a travel blog detailing the blogger's love for travel, with an emphasis on the local sights and sounds, and everything related to it. A definite must-read for other similar liboteros out there, as well.
7. Yaya, where's my tsinelas?
I am such a stickler for a good lifestyle blog with interesting photos. And such is the case with the Yaya, where's my tsinelas? blog. Follow the blogger as she explores her city wearing her trusty tsinelas.
My list still isn't complete. I'm still on the hunt! So if you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment away! =)
