Take 3: Reyna’s Top 10 Choices: Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009

by reynz on June 7, 2009

Can you believe this? Eto! Final na talaga! With all my credentials and I am not getting this right? Hehehe! Leche! Hindi kasi to pinag-aralan sa MBA, kaya wag nyo akong sisihin! Parang naririnig ko si Itay! “Mag-aral ka uli!”

Yeah, yeah, yeah! Palpak ako sa Take 1, at mas lalong wez ko check ang Take 2, and hopefully, I get this right this time. As the saying goes, “try and try! until kasuklaman ka!” hehehe!

Most of my choices are still the same, except for Brother Utoy who was disqualified. So, I guess, talagang hindi na yata ako saved hehehe! Kasi, papalitan ko na sya. And I am choosing BARRIO SIETE. Which took me forever to decide hehehe! Charing! Haller!

I chose Barrio Siete largely because of the great company I have in the Barrio and the concept that we have is real and is working. This is going to be one large online community of domestic and overseas Filipinos who have succeeded in their quest for success despite struggles, hardship and adversities in life. That place, or phase in life is what we call “Barrio Siete“. It’s a concept. And we are determined to push Barrio Siete to play some meaningful role in the future. I don’t know what role yet, basta! And given the initial success of Barrio Siete, I don’t see why not! Let me brag a bit!

Here’s our one-week record!


That’s a week’s record folks! An average of 20 minutes is being spent on our site. Meaning, nina-nam-nam nila ang aming mga sinusulat. Wagi! And then it went to this:


And to this.


To this…


You want to know what it is now?


And so, here are my complete list of Reyna’s Top 10 Choices: Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009!

  3. It’s Johnonymous!

*clearing my throat to sound like Ms. Janette Toral*

Ahem, please note that candidate no. 7 Sa Labas ng Mandaluyong cannot be found anymore by the search engine. If you want your vote to count, please update it and put in writingtoexhale.com instead.

Yan na po ang bahay ng Lolo Jan from Sa Labas ng Mandaluyong. Ewan ko lang kung hahabulin pa rin sya ngayon ng mga men in white with tasers and white jacket. After all, mataas na ang ehe nyan ngayon kasi na sa WP blog na siya. Now, let’s get serious –

Barrio Siete is a great nominee. I love that site, too. Parang palasyo rin. I can be myself there as well as here. It’s my preferred hangout, Barrio Siete. Pag pagod na ang panga ko kaiingles, dyan ako nagpapahinga at nagrerecharge. Please take note, this is not snooty compliment. I mean it. Great ideas written in everyday language – that’s Barrio Siete. Kaya nga ko nagbabasa dun eh. So I can learn how to communicate more effectively.

Last night, I enjoyed two articles. Mam Cat’s on MLQU and Reesie’s post. I’ve come away a smarter man reading just these two posts.

For other readers na undecided which blog to vote for? Consider Barrio Siete. Take it from Lolo Jan: if you choose it, hindi kayo mapapariwara.

Hahaha – the missing link na matagal na ring hinanap ng National Geographic – ang Barrio Siete…I got the same caveat from Ms. Janette – Brother Utoy is overage…

bluep June 9, 2009 at 4:54 am

wait! question. does that mean if ever I vote I have to put those links in my post eh boboto lang naman ako tapos kukunin ng mga sponsor na yan ang PR ng blog ko? ganun ba yun? hahaha

paki klaro nga inang at parang ayoko na bumoto pag may ganyan mga sponsor ads sa ilalim ng votes.

Kaya ako nagkaka swine flu eh dahit sa kakuriputan ko haha

Unfortunately, that’s how the tabulation is – to be on the masterlist.

How can you be included in the masterlist?

1.) Complete the 10 lineup with no disqualification.
2.) Mention and put the links of those sponsors.

So you can vote – but unless you’re in the masterlist, your vote is not counted.

Janette Toral June 13, 2009 at 11:54 pm

Hi Reynz. Add ko lang clarification. As long as you have the ten line-up, pasok siya sa masterlist.

Adding the sponsor is only an option for those na gusto sumali sa raffle.
