My Vote for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs

Tuesday, June 3, 2008




I regularly visit 10 or so blogs on SAGADA and the IGOROT people. Only 3 of these qualify for the requirements of the The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs in 2008. Here they are:

1. VISIT SAGADA. You have to give it to this group of guys on how they've come up with a comprehensive guide on visiting my hometown of Sagada, Philippines. From travel information and answering visitors requests, to travel tips, hotel and restaurant reviews, to the best photo gallery on Sumaging Cave, this blog is a one-stop online resource on how-to's with regards to visiting Sagada.

2. CALL OF NATURE. …it’s not just another call from the lavatory. That's how Scott, the blog author chooses to headline his blog. And going through his posts, his outlook on multiple issues ranging from socio-political issues and Christianity, are exactly that - personal and unique and far from being typical. He's a prolific blogger too. His almost 200 posts since December is a huge blog chest worth digging into.

3. BLOG OF THE SAGADA IGOROT. Just because. Started early this year as a blog for the relaunch of the Sagada Igorot Online website, this blog is an insider's lens on SAGADA and the IGOROT people by a Sagada Igorot himself. A recent post regarding an Igorot Slur at a Filipina website brought to light how Filipinos still incorrectly view the "Igorots" as ignorant and misinformed.

Rounding up my top 10 blogs are:
