Blogs have become one of the primary shapers of today’s internet generation. We no longer just rely to the traditional media for information because blogs do also provide us fresh contents to read.
As we celebrate the 6th Blog Day today, August 31, 2011, let us acknowledge those blogs that made an impact to us personally or even to our community.
First on my list is the tech blog Unbox.ph. The blog is my primary source of news in the technology world. Backed by one of my idols in the Pinoy blogosphere Mr. Carlo S. Ople as the EIC, Unbox.ph ‘features awesome products for the modern-day Filipino’ ranging from gadgets, wheels, to movies and other stuff for men.
Next in line is my friend’s Unrequited No More blog. I can still remember how surprised she was when her blog got significant number of followers in a short period of time. She’s just merely sharing her experience of being ‘head over hees in love with her best friend (now boyfriend)’ and all of a sudden, people are starting to contact her for some love advice. Way to go, Kat!
Another personal blog is my third pick. This time, my Christian brother Kim’s Dreamland. He’s pretty much sharing things that interest him. I can actually relate to some of his posts but I don’t leave any comments. Let’s just say, I’m done with sharing personal stuff online.
Entertainment blogger Pinoy Gossip Boy falls under my fourth list. The blogger behind the PGB blog, Mr. Aaron Lozada, was recently crowned the Online Editor of the entertainment section of PhilStar.com. If you want showbiz scoops, his blog is the go-to place.
One of my favorite radio DJs Gino Quillamor’s An Introverted Mind in Extrovert’s Body is my fifth pick. This is his personal blog and I can say I can almost always relate on each of his posts. It’s as if I was the one who wrote them.
And the last post goes to the blog of my radio DJ idol Chico Garcia – Strange Fruit. I’m a ‘rusher,’ a term coined to all the fans and followers of Monster Radio RX 93.1‘s morning show The Morning Rush. I don’t know where he got his brain but his intelligence, creativity and extreme sense of humor are just way too much to handle. Good thing they all fit to his human brain.
That’s it! I’ve finally completed my list. Can I just add that this thing is making me feel sick on a long weekend? I mean, I’ve been squeezing my brain to remember the best blogs out there that need to be recognized. I know, some of my picks are not new in the blogosphere but they’re not that ‘mainstream’ as other popular blogs. I believe, they should be recognized too!
Happy Blog Day everyone!
