Hello everyone. I've decided to come up with this writing project of identifying new and emerging blogs that are making an impact to its readers in 2007. These are blogs that started anytime from August 1, 2006 to the present. They are gradually gaining a considerable amount of readership and influence.

To join this effort, please do the following:
  • Write a blog post and pick your choice of 10 (or less) emerging influential blogs. Any blog in the world can be picked. (You can update the same post entry up to July 28.)
  • Include a link to this post to help spread the word. (Hope you can also vote for it in Digg)
  • Post a comment and let us know about your entry. Only one entry per blogger. Cut-off date and time for submission of entries is on July 28, Saturday, 5:00 pm (GMT+8). Afterwards, submission of comments in this page shall be closed.
Every week, beginning May 19, I will:
On July 29 to 31, I will:
  • Make a final review of posts. We will post a message in your entry to inform you that we've completed the review and no more updates shall be entertained afterwards.
  • Note that we have the right to disqualify entries and the citations they made, if we are not able to confirm or authenticate the blogger's identity on or before July 29. This is especially true to blogs with anonymous identities and those with pre-dated entries (versus its blog date creation).
On August 1, 2007, we will do the following:
  • List the The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs in 2007 based from your posts.
  • I will pick ten entries in random who will get one hundred dollars (US$100) each.
May this serve as a worthwhile learning experience and be able to spot new blogs that are making great waves out there! Cheers!
