  • Blogs with anonymous profiles were visited earlier. Those that are not in the masterlist are no longer included in the final tally.
August 1 eyeball - I invite those who submitted an entry to the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs to come and attend. We will be drawing the 10 winners on this day who will get US$100 each. Of course, those who can't make it are still part of the draw and can win. The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs in 2007 shall also be announced. Please don't forget to confirm your attendance.

Ms. Janette, thanks for creating this project which brought much attention to my super lame-o blog where I only write 4 entries per month, haha. How that's influential, I have no idea. :D

I did notice that this guy's revisions here may not have been communicated to you.

I can account for and name all the lovely 19 bloggers who voted for me... and definitely, Selaplana's revision (where he added my name later on to his list) didn't get counted in the final numbers... which would've made it 20 instead of 19. I only found out his revision recently because I saw some incoming traffic from his blog post.

Well, in any case, no big deal. Thanks again to you and everyone who nommed me. Congrats to everyone on that list. :)

@fruityoaty - thank you for the heads-up. I'll be doing a final check on all entries for updates. On August 1, a final top 10 list shall be posted based on it. Your numbers will also be updated by that time. Thank you for your patience.

Hi Ms. Janette! Again, much thanks for coming up with this project. Indeed, it has been an interesting experience. Am still feeling the rush - and i kid you not!

I have posted a note at my site - thanking all those who have voted for the A-Kid and I noticed that some votes for the AnitoKid may have not been counted, i.e., four (4) votes . And this is completely understandable because of the overwhelming response to the project. Such a huge turnout!

Like my online buddy, FruityOaty, I, too can account for all my online buddies who have voted for me (25 votes in all instead of 21).

I hope this info helps in your final check of entries, Ms. Janette. Again, maraming,maraming, maraming, maraming salamat!

@anitokid - entries that were not included in week 11 are those who:
- did not include a link to the writing project
- did not register their entry in the writing project
- did not heed our request for updating of blogger profile, reflecting their full name and email address.

For the last one, they are included in our final round of checks. If they will be able to update their profile, as we requested, their entry will be included in the masterlist and citations shall be counted.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the speedy response, Ms. Janette! And thank you very much for including them in the final round of checks.

Again, maraming salamat kabayan!

Hi, Janette,

I am overwhelmed, yet humbled.

From the bottom of my Sexy Heart, thanks to you all, dear Readers, Blogfriends, and my Family for having supported me, such that I am now doing what I like most-WRITING, which is my passion.

Thanks to you, too, Janette for this initiative, which has acknowledged the new bloggers, winners and not.

Happy rakenrol congratulations sa inyong lahat.

Sayang lang, medyo tumagal ako sa list pero nasipa din on the very last week. LOLz.

Pero kahit na ganu'n, much thanks to Ms. Toral for initiating such a great writing project. Marami nga sa mga bagong blogs ang nabigyan ng atensyon at karampatang pagkilala. Naipamalas nila kung gaano sila kaimpluwensya sa mga minamahal nilang mambabasa.

Muli, binabati ko kayong lahat. Rakenrol.

Wow. I can't believe I managed to get to the Top 10 list. Thank you very much for this writing project.

Happy Blogging to all!
Janette Toral said…
Just updated the list as I got pointed to several entries this week that have made changes after I initially visited them. Everyone's kind understanding is very much appreciated.

I was actually expecting that there would be a change in standings sooner or later. Oh well, there's still some time until the final announcements of winners ^_^ Goodluck to us all.

Happy Blogging!

@the anitokid - The 4 that you mentioned have not updated their profile, as I requested from them when they submitted their entry last week. As they have missed the deadline, they will no longer be included in our final count.
I find that throughout, this project has been so exciting. I congratulate Digitalfilipino for bringing us onto the next level of blogging excitements. I salute!

Actually, I've been meaning to point this out for weeks (but got too lazy about something trivial)... The name of my blog got mistaken as "It's not only fruity, it's oaty!" (that's actually my blog tag line).

The blog name is actually just:

Thanks. :D
