My Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2011

It was in 2008 when I started reading blogs, though I have to say that my favorite blogs are those that have been there for years, there are also (which I follow and frequently read) who just started a year ago but already gain popularity and influence.


This writing project by Ms. Janette Toral gives recognition to new bloggers which started April 2010 to present. To show my support, I also listed my Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogger.
Now, here’s my Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs.
1.    The Lost Boy Lloyd
This wandering wonder boy goes number one on my list. Sharing his own personal travel experiences and insights, just like me anyone will surely pick one or two tips on planning a memorable vacation. I also love his vivid and lively photos. Do check out his blog site and find out why I love The Lost Boy Lloyd.

2.    Pink Magaline by Jingke Kolca
Aside from food and travel blogs, recently I became so interested with online contests and this blog offers simple to follow online contest like the recent Magaline Giveaway that I also joined but unfortunately did not win. I like this blog because it’s all about woman, her need and wants. Like her, I also love to shop and Pink Magaline features weekly shopping haul and SALE finds. But most of all, I like PinkMagaline’s Pinay in Pink wherein she features one beautiful, talented and inspiring Filipina every month. 
3.   The Tottering Mama by Mommy Olga
Though I’m still single, I still read blogs about parenting, adjusting to married life and role of a mom which I share inspiring stories, tips to my sister and my mommy friends. Olga, a fulltime mom not only became a good influence to her children and family but also to her readers like me. In this blog, she shares simple stuff of providing kids activities to the most difficult task of being a mom and a wife.
4.    RizalPark.Org
Managed by a group of bloggers with Jhong Medina as Founder of this blog. It  aims to promote our national heritage – Rizal Park. This year in celebration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal, this blog is a great source of information for important events and happening inside and outside Rizal Park. RizalPark.Org shares significant details which is part of the Philippine history like the chronology of Rizal’s life.

5.   Foodamn Philippines by Daryll Dial Villena
Started in January 2011, this blog is all about personal FOOD encounter by  mommy blogger Daryll. Featuring great food finds and events inside and outside Metro Manila, Foodamn has gain influence reaching more than 200 likes on Facebook Page. Her up-to-date blog post covering special events and personal insights makes her readers keep coming back.    
6.   The Average Jane
I always love the simple things just like the simple blog of Tin Solis Kiok aka The Average Jane. She writes about anything and everything from food, travel, entertainment, crafts, photography. She is right when she said that “Life is not a spectator sport. If you’re going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, you’re wasting your life.” It is true that sometimes we didn’t know that happiness is in simple things.
7. by Liz.
This blog helps people including me who are in search for online opportunities and making money-guidelines. Liz also shares her knowledge on gaining more visitors on your site. This site teaches me what the internet has to offer. 

8.  Lost Tsinelas (Yaya, Where's My Tsinelas)
Honestly, this is one of my favorite blogs. I like everything, from the title to the content and photos. The author follows his trusty slippers in search of great accommodation, best food and document memorable travel experiences. Just like me, I’m sure readers enjoy following Yuri and learning from his travel and food adventures.  I also love his photos, it’s very natural, the colors are real.
9. Certified Foodies
In this food blog you'll be up-to-date with the latest food finds, restaurant reviews and important events. Read inspiring stories of siblings Mhel and Ken, the Certified Foodies and learn some recipes and cooking tips, too! 

I never thought I will be having my own blog for I am contented and enjoying reading other blogs until I discover myself making videos on places we’ve been and later on distributing those to my friends and relatives. Until one day, I realized I have a lot of photos to keep so I decided to put them in one place so everyone can view, that’s how LivingMarjorney started.

I am proud to say that this blog has made a big difference and changed my outlook in life. No, I won’t be including my blog to the list for I really want to nominate those who I believe are influential. This blog has a lot more to discover and a long way to be influential, who knows maybe next year?

10.   Pinay Travelogue
Lynette is the person behind the Pinay Travelogue. She blogs about  interesting places like the island of Mindanao, discovering the hidden beauty and culture. Visit her blog and be captivated by her amazing photos and shared stories.
There goes my Top 10, how about you? Visit and join the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs and nominate your chosen 10 blogs. Deadline of submission is until September 7, 2011 only.

P.S. The above mentioned blogs are my personal choice which I believe are influential and I hope through this, I was able to help in promoting these blogs. I don’t personally know or met the authors except for few of them (two or three) and had short conversation at some blog events.

This writing project will not be possible without the support of sponsors such as Cyber Monday Deals, Tribeca Private Residences, How To Videos, Palawan Beaches for Sale, Green and Natural Lubes Philippines, Philippine data center, Philippine online shopping, Singapore jobs, Pinoy Party Food, Manila Rentals and Great product deals.
