The Uber Prestigious Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009

I have edited this post (7/11/09) because I'm happy to announce that I have finally (FINALLY! yes..) completed my noms for this year's uber awesome, uber prestigious top emerging influential blogs. I started out with just two nominations, and begged my readers to send me links to their favorite newbie blogs (and this explains why most comments here are suggestions!) and in the process, I have made several new blogger friends (and some jedi masters), improved my readership (to a staggering 30 visits per day! lol..), and most importantly, connected with people who share a true passion for blogging.

Without further ado, here is my uber awesome and eccentric list:
  1. http://www.adaphobic.com/

WOOT! CONGRATULATIONS! You're all winners in my book (or post)!

Awarding will be on August 8, 6pm at Casino Filipino in Paranaque. Confirm your attendance to this event here.

  9. I love coffee, too. Does that count for something? Ahahaha. Hi, I'm Jan of WritingToExhale. If you do drop by in my blog, I'd serve you coffee. Promise. I'm hoping you'd have a look-see because you might find something you'd like. If not as a nominee to your top 10 list, then maybe as a friend? ",)

  12. Rey,

    I would like to promote my blog. Creative writing is a relatively small niche in the blogging community and it is my goal to entice the writers/bloggers/creative minds out there to go back to writing.

    I specialize in short stories (less) and poetry (more) he he he. Maybe you could take a look.

    Thanks!

  13. Hello Rey,

    This blog is "neat", speaks of the thespian in you. I would be honest to say that I am commenting because I feel the need to campaign for great blogs that could complete your list. I am not one of them though, but I would like to recommend:

    http://Zorlone.blogspot.com/ Zorlone is authored by Dr. Lorenzo Bernardino; the first practising doctor-come-poet, I've met in the blogosphere. He's brilliant. You've got to visit and read his posts to find out for yourself. It's not everyday that we come across such a dynamic fusion of science and literature.

    http://writingtoexhale.com/
    Jan Geronimo authors Writing to Exhale. If you read this guy, you won't ever regret visiting his blog. He's a writer extraordinaire, with sometimes 78 comments in one post. That's quite a feat!

    http://thestrugglingblogger.168center.com/
    The Struggling Blogger is authored by Roy dela Cruz, a father blogger who owns 13 blogs! Being a single parent who writes for these various niches is a Herculean task; that in itself speaks about how versatile he can be.

    These are my three top bets. It would be most appreciated if you can consider them worthy of your nomination.

    I have my complete list at this URL if you would like to visit more.
    http://jenaisle-candidthoughts.blogspot.com/2009/05/my-pick-for-top-10-emerging-influential.html

    Thank you and more successes to you and your blog.

  17. Hello Rey,

    Thanks for the inclusion of WritingtoExhale. We appreciate it a lot. Sana ma consider mo rin iyong iba. I was trying to comment about your post above, but it gets aborted everytime, so I'll post my comment here instead.

    I am a fan of Slumdog Millionaire, I've watched the movie at least 5 times and Dev Patel is cool. I think I would enjoy airbender too based on your post.

    Have you seen Shrek? I like these awesome cartoon series because of its simple but thought-provoking story line. I think it would be the same way with The last airbender. Thanks for sharing your review.

  18. hmmm... how to get in your spot?

    my friends say I have the flair for writing... but why is it that everytime I get into these situations, I don't know what to say?

    I'm just not good at 'lifting my own chair'

    may I invite you to my blog instead?

  19. Thanks for this post. I want to take part in this award as well. You may want to visit my site :)

  21. Darn. My friends Doc Z/Zorlone and Roy are both shy. Bummer. Sige na nga, tulungan ko na kayo sa pagbuhat ng bangko nyo. O ayan. Ngek, mabigat, ano ba to?!

    Rey, these two are great persons. And so is Kevin who is not at all shy about asking for your vote.

    Oh before I forget: Thanks a lot for putting up my name there. Mga heavyweights kasama ko? Wow. I'm deeply flattered. Thanks, Rey. ",)

    An honest message divulged,
    softly as a token of words.
    From million neurons indulged,
    clamor of fighters shields and swords!

    I lift this humble offering,
    mere letters unfit for a deity.
    Free from a tremulous calling,
    of honor and respectful trustee.

  35. Rey, may I make another recommendation for The Struggling Blogger?

    He is a truly dedicated and passionate blogger who could be a true and loyal friend. If you visit his 13 blogs, you would get a glimpse of his endearing qualites.

    Influential? I would recommend a blogger who can contribute something positive to the blogosphere, and I'm certain Roy can do that. Thanks again and way to go!

  36. Hello Rey,

    Thanks so much for choosing The Struggling Blogger. You won't regret your decision. Hurray for your top ten picks.

    Cheers! :)

  40. Rey, thanks a lot for squeezing in Roy. I know you're under a lot of
    pressure because you've lots of friends yourself. My kind of thankfulness
    does not translate into material things. But let me tell you you've got
    your back covered. The Jedi Bloggers are all behind you. But of course as
    Doc Z will say - pag may kainan na involved sa usapan, we'd be all in front
    of you, blocking your access to the smorgasboard of good food and wine.
    Ahahaha. Yeeha. ",)

  41. hehe! thanks Jena! Yep, i am CERTAIN that i will not regret my decisions! woot! great list up there no?

  42. sige doc Z. turuan mo nga kami ng basics of poetry writing. I only write silly poems, and have never published any "real" ones. lol. 8-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. With that creative mind of yours, I'm sure you can make poems that make mine child's play.

    Besides, I am stil learning. Makapal lang ang mukha kong magpublish.

  51. hi barrycyrus! are you related to Miley? hehehe.
    Thanks for the compliments and for dropping by.

    Actually that's a good question. I haven't really thought about it. It's "rey junior" because that's my name, but I think it can also be "rayjur" or something like that. lol! what do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't yet, Reyjur. Ahahaha. Sounds strange. I'm not sure yet if I can come. I'm a little antsy at social events eh. And I'm not at all sure I'd like to meet some people there. But if I am sufficiently caffeinated baka sakali. Ilang oras lang naman un, di ba. Then I can I get back to wearing tsinelas and walking shorts uli. :-P
