There are many different types of blogs emerging and influencing different people, most of them differ by one another not only in the type of content, but also in the way that content is expressed or written or how may people read in between the lines. Many blogs provide informations on particular topics or be able to inspire others by sharing their passsion, wonderful thoughts and experiences that are able to motivate a lot of blog readers and writers to explore life. For me, blogging is not an easy job, one must have the passion and intrinsic motivation to provide a better one. So, here are my picks for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009 Writing Project by Janette Toral:

1. Zorlone

This is a blog by Dr. Lorenzo Bernardino a specialist in Internal Medicine. His dedication in his passion are greatly reflected in his poems which are very beutiful with nicely structed words and he is able to inspire life in his own very simple way. He's really gifted with writing skills that he expresses his thoughts in his masterpiece. The first time I visited his blog, i read his poem entitled "Padyak" it is really a nice poem for me, made me interested in his future post.

2. The Struggling Blogger

This is a blog by Roy dela Cruz a widower who write many different articles, poets and short stories which are very informative and inspiring because he greatly express his thought honestly. His post that i first read is the entitled "Clothes for my kids" which made me think that there are really a lot of sacrifices in life and also his other posts such as the "The life i can only dream of" and "More of my dream life" which are more of about his personal dreams are very inspiring. His creative artcles are made influencial by his very inspiring thoughts.

3. Writing to Exhale

This is a blog by Jan Geronimo of Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro who is for me he is a very talented writer. He express his ideas in his articles and poems which are so inspirational yet informative that boost up your interest and he is very dauntless in his words. He deeply shows his great willingness to learn in his post. his poat that i like most is his "My Philosophy in a Bottle of Ketchup" where in he share about his very simple life , it is so inspiring and made me thought that theres a lot of fascination even in simplest things in life. prooving the motto “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” by L. da Vinci

4. Lifelots

This is a blog by Irene, her posts are very interesting. There are many lessons in life to be learn that inspire and motivates the reader to explore life. She motivates her readers to live life to the fullest without hatred. I love the lines from her post "Learn from one rebuke" which says "Mistakes and pain are part of growing up and who would want to feel the same pain over and over again that is why we have to learn the lesson of the mistake and never do it again.......Life is never perfect - we just have to make it worth living.", i love her positive outlook in life, it really inspires me.

5. Father Blogger Dot Com

This is a blog by Angel Cuala, for me he's a very influencial blogger because he shares from his real personal experiences in his blogs that many people can relate and his wonderful thoughts gaining lessons from his life as a great father. his posts in his blogs entails a lot of being practical in life and necessary information, just like in his post "Battered Wives: Not Just a Problem of Physical Abuse" and his "Financial Crisis: How Our Children Can Help" which are very nice.

    Learning to write is like walking,
    each step made careful not to fall.
    A steady hand guides the pen in writing,
    like knees sturdy not wanting to crawl.

    Lines made with love and passion,
    deserves a second look within.
    Like sunshine on a fair day of creation,
    a poet made substance begins.
