I could not afford to let this month pass without beating the deadline for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2011 Writing Project spearheaded by Janette Toral. My nominees are blogs from SocCSKSarGen that are making waves beyond Mindanao.
1.SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers- the blog of Mindanao’s Funnest, a community of bloggers from South Cotabato, Cotabato Province, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos City (collectively, SOCCKSARGEN or Region 12) that seeks to balance the usually sensational and negative reporting coming out from Mindanao.
2. The Bookworm of Gensan- the blog of Prof. Gilbert Tan that influences me to splurge some more on books and truly own them by reading with passion. He has been touching lives for decades yet he manages to stay fresh and relevant in the 21st Century. Such inspiration!
