mum's thoughts, blogging contests

The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs Writing Project is up again this year on its 7th run. It has been a while since I last join and I am glad to have find the time to write an entry {am also crossing my fingers to win the $100 cash prize :)}.

Here are my top picks of must-read blogs that I think deserves to be hailed as emerging influential blogs, which you all have got to check out if you haven’t already:

  1. ALetterWriter. Com ~ letter are just the sweetest but it is also most unfortunate that letter-writing is also a dying art. That is why I really enjoy reading all about this heart-warming letters in this blog. The world needs more letters and if this lovely blog can encourage at least one person to write down a letter then I am all for it!
  2. ~ a lovely play on words if you ask me. I love how the author gives details on each issue or topic she tackles on her blog. She sure is one mum with a lot to say and I enjoy reading a piece of her mind at the end of each post.
  3. ~it does pay to be in the know and this site is a treasure trove of valuable info and trivia about the Filipinos and the Philippines, which I absolutely like.
  4. ~ online jobs are the next big thing and if not for online projects I receive time and again I will not be able to afford to continue staying at home to care for my son, so this blog is a must-read. It features invaluable tips on how to be successful in online works and where to find the best online jobs.
  5. ~ I love discovering bloggers from my province, that is why this particular travel blog is included in my list. Love your own so they say. Bias aside, this traveller also features a host of interesting spots in the country!
  6. ~ a traveller features different local delicacies from the beautiful places in the Philippines that he visited, what could be more delicious than that? ūüėČ
  7. ~ this is a go-to place for everything and anything Pilipinas!
  8. ~ is a very interesting mum blog I just recently discovered. This sassy mum of 3 plans to exlore as much of what the world has to offer, which I absolutely like to do myself!
  9. ~ another travel blog that I have just discovered recently. Traveling is something I’d most definitely want to do if I had the resources so reading all about other people’s travel adventures is something I really enjoy.
  10. ~ spa is one of my simple pleasures, that is why I love reading about the newly-opened spas and their popular offers even when I cannot afford to go for a treatment on a regular basis. This site is a perfect hub for all things spa.

This writing project is brought to us all by  Optimind SEO Company, Infinity Hub, E-Commerce Boot Camp, and Digital Influencer Boot Camp, and runs until 15 September, 2013 so hurry and join while you still can. For rules and other details, check this post:
