My Top Emerging Influential Blogs for 2011 (The Initial List)...

Blogging has indeed open up a whole new different world for me.  Whereas before, I would view the web as a place to simply check my e-mail, social networking accounts and for purely academic/work-related research purposes; I find that the emergence of blogs have, in a way, also altered my perceptions on information made available to the reading public.

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. 

6. Libotero

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!  =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
