My Personal Picks for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2014

Many people underestimate the power of blogs as a form of influence, especially here in the Philippines. In the US, many blogs are actually used by big companies to reach out directly to their market.

Blog sites being maintained by moms, for example, are given product samples for review or even sponsorship by companies who make items that are being patronized by the blog’s readers. Because they have a clear statistic of the readers, their advertisements’ target audience are sure to be hit which makes the campaigns very effective and very cheap, compared to making use of traditional advertising tools.

Influential Blogger recognizes such types of blogs. Now on its eighth year, the site recognizes the top 10 emerging influential blogs whose audience and readership is gradually increasing in the past year.

I tried submitting this blog for the award but unfortunately did not make it through the cut. The blogs need to be created not earlier than August 2013 and while this blog was officially launched on August 13, 2013, I had already posted out a few entries when it was still hosted under WordPress.com.

Modern Mamas Unite!

About two weeks ago, modern mamas united for a fun-filled event at the Ayala Center Cebu, sponsored by Modern Mama PH (Facebook). The day started out with a yoga session, which I was not able to join in. A mommy blogger friend, Balot of Balot’s Chatter, was able to almost attend (haha she was slightly late) and saw moms and their kids joining in the stretching exercises.

When the daughter and I arrived at the event, there were still a few mommies around. Some kids were gathered around two tables that had coloring materials so we decided to join in on the fun. I was drooling over all the colored pens and crayons from Stabilo.
