Blogosphere’s Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010
Ahhh… Blogosphere, one of the worlds I mostly visit next to the portal under my bed while dreaming. Because of not having the luxury to visit some bookstores due to lack of time, I satisfies my literary hunger by scanning the vast world of the Blogosphere.
What I love reading blogs is that you’ll be able to discover new breed of writers, unique train of thoughts and creative ideas. Here, literatures are fresh and untouched, unlike those in the bookstores whose ideas are “processed” by editor, censorship and franchising.
I still love books but blogs are way different, It’s like sharing each other’s sub consciousness as we read freshly pressed ideas or while writing our own grunts and ideas through a blog article.
Anyway, there’s this project about the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2010 wherein bloggers around the world can share to others what they think are interesting and influential blog sites of the year.
Well, with no further ado, here’s my top nine [for now] entry.
1.STRANGE FRUIT [chicogarcia.wordpress.com]
Enter the world of the infamous FM jock as he tackles everything under the sun from viral videos he likes up to photography. I love his photographs every time he came back from a vacation. He featured and gave reviews to some resorts and tourist destinations here in our country that many of us are not aware of. And by the use of his hobby, he was able to give his readers a glimpse of those vacation getaways by his nice photographs. Also he have this THE MORNING TOP TEN, wherein he posts funny and or interesting transcripts of previous top ten episodes heard on their radio Morning Rush with Chico and Delamar over at RX 93.1.
2. THE CREATIVE DORK [the creativedork.com]
Let the title speak for itself. Well, I’m studying how to become a professional graphic/visual artist and this graphic designer’s blog is sort of one of my bible. His works are so amazing; I adore them and at times, felt frustrated by those artworks. His posts about his pop culture preferences are something to look forward to. So Hip and the lay-out…well, so dorky, so creative. 😀
3. JASONHAMSTER : ANG BAGONG RIZAL [jasonhamster.wordpress.com]
This blogger have this gift in storytelling, he got this interesting scenarios and dialogues in his head. He got this thing with veggies, fruits, plants and animals. He write these short stories full of emotions complete with some illustrations [that I think Jason made out of MS paint] , it’s like reading an adult version of Veggie Tales. No wonder he won a Saranggola Blog SIKAT award last year for a certain category.
4. MARY ANN LICUDINE [nnayam.blogspot.com]
I am so proud with this Pinay artist. Her artworks are so dreamy. She posts her projects in works and as well as the step by step process or evolution of her stunning artworks. This woman relived my hobby to draw and rekindled my childlike imagination through her blog. It’s nice how people like her see things in a different way and able to share it to the world.
5. CHICO AND DELAMAR’S TOP TEN BY BLUE RITZ [cdtop10.blogspot.com]
For those who don’t know, People who listen to RX 93.1’s Morning Rush are called “Rushers” . There are 2 types of Rushers, those “ACTIVE RUSHERS” who contributes entries for the top ten and those “SILENT RUSHERS” who just listen and if got time, will tweet the ultimate duo for some greets and requests. That radio show is like a huge family or barkada and because of this man’s dedication, the community extended abroad. Blue Ritz is such a dedicated rusher, he records the show every day and post it into his site for everyone to download. It’s a nice experience for people like me who can’t listen to the show because of work to download the show’s podcast and play them whenever and wherever I want. Laughtrip with the Morning rush duo could be endless if your playlist is full of Top ten. And at times, top ten gives our barkada a laugh during our drinking sessions or post prods. 😀
6. FACEBUKO [facebuko.com]
This infamous parody of facebook is hilarious. Those made up accounts and statuses are so funny, it’s like having access and have a laugh on celebrities’ catfights, got overload with the mushiness of Cha Cha bulilit’s love life and Politicians’ dumb and dumber status replies. Your addiction with the actual FB will be papered here, like what the site’s status says, “It’s like Facebook. Only Delicious”
7. THE PROFESIONAL HECKLER [professionalheckler.wordpress.com]
Political satire at its best. His posts are funny and full of wit and one of the blog relevant to me when it comes to current events. Well, as a callcenter agent, I don’t have that luxury to watch TV specially news that much, that’s why I always follow this site. His nasty take on politicians and celebrities are so rewarding and I must say, It’s like watching a show straight out of a local version of Comedy Central . If you got a chance to check the site, please do check out his “Top 10 Messages Left on [blank]’s Answering Machine” post wherein Politicians and Celebrities leaves their sarcastic and funny voicemails. I also love his posts during the election season, he have this “Ayon sa mga Bituin” and “Twitter” segments for those who joined the election rat race.
8. AROUND THE BUZZ PRIMETIME [aroundthebuzzprimetime.blogspot.com]
To update me fully on what’s happening on the local scene, I complete it with some dose of local showbiz news. It’s local movie reviews are very useful at times that I’m craving for something local to watch in the cinemas.
9. PROJECT 52 WEEKS [project52weeks.com]
I envy the way how she come up with those micro short films. I envy her a lot because she has a set of friends who are willing to act in front of her camera. I visited her site by having a typo error during one of my google searching sessions. I badly want to create short films but I don’t have enough much time and friend actors to work with. I envy this blog a lot hehehe. 😀
