Preparations: The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs in 2008 Writing Project

With the response we got in the top 10 emerging influential blogs in 2007, I often get asked if we'll do it again in 2008. After giving it a great thought, I've decided to do it again.

I encourage you to subscribe to our blog and receive updates as this writing project evolves. This will keep you posted on upcoming activities too.

To be better prepared, here are some early pointers I'd like to share:
  • New blogs created from July 2007 to the present are qualified to be cited. They are gradually gaining a considerable amount of readership and influence.
    • Old blogs who move to a new domain are disqualified
    • Blogs who remove their archives just to fit in the cut-off date are disqualified.
  • Bloggers interested in joining can start writing a blog entry beginning May 3, 2008 citing up to 10 blogs they found to be emerging and influential. I will be making a blog post at that time where link to entries can be submitted.
    • Any blogger in the world can participate in this writing project.
    • Any blog in the world can be cited.
    • It is likely that most of the guidelines last year shall be followed for the 2008 edition.
  • Writing project entries shall be accepted up to August 2, 2008 (tentative).
This writing project will not be possible without the support of sponsors such as PRC Board Exam Results.

Parties interested to sponsor or donate raffle prizes during the eyeball/announcement day can e-mail me at digitalfilipino (at) gmail (dot) com. As usual, prizes will be given or raffled to writing project participants only and not to the blogs they cited.

May this serve as a worthwhile learning experience and be able to spot new blogs that are making great waves out there! Cheers!
