I am a blogger.

28 Jun

Janette Toral, author of the Digital Filipino website, encourages all bloggers to come up with their top ten list of blogs that made an impact on their readers in 2009. 1.  Hay Men! Ang blog ng mga tunay na lalake!– I will nominate this blog if only for the dozes of laughter I get when I read any one of its entries.

2. Good Times Manila– If you think this blog is screwing with you then it is. It says so in the disclaimer. Hehe.

3. Patay Gutom – Any blog that says “Application for new members are now closed. Because… it’s not open anymore.” on their membership form wins my heart. I never thought the word “patay gutom” can sound so classy. Hehehe.

4. Numbrd– I’m including this blog in my shortlist for it’s sheer uniqueness. I hate numbers by the way.

5. Chasing Light– This blogs is so full of life and positivity. Plus, I heart anyone who can make Spanish Sardines in Tetra Pack look good in pictures.

6. Zorlone– He reminds me of an art I have long since forgotten.

7. Writing to Exhale– One word. Elegance.

8. The Thirsty Blogger – This is a toast to relationships that were formed, mended and ended over drinks. It has always been a mystery why some people are willing to shed a couple hundred bucks on drinks that they can take buy anywhere for more than half the price. Well I say, it’s not about the tea. It’s about the time


9. Bahay ni Badong– I have enough deep thoughts in my brain that I can handle. If this blog was a movie, it’s a feel good movie.

10. This is why you’re fat.– Wow, ang sarap mabuhay!

Go to Top Ten Emerging Influential Blogs of 2009 by Janette Toral. This writing project will not be possible without the support of sponsors such as Absolute Traders, My Brute Cheats, Business Summaries, Fitness Advantage Club, Events and Corporate Video,, Dominguez Marketing Communications, Red Mobile, Budget hotel in Makati, and

    So this is the headquarters of my enigmatic reader. I can’t copy your delicious one-liners, forte mo un eh. Ahahaha.

    Were you sizing up my blog when you visited me? Oh no, I should have behaved better then. “,)

    It’s my short-tempered alter ego you’ve read in my blog. I’m the good, benign version.

    Nice to meet you Nobe.

  20. ceblogger

    June 22, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    hey, nobe! you’re blogging left and right na ah! how many blogs do you have now?

  21. jan geronimo

    June 22, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    @Novz: Nobe has other blogs? Saan? Undeclared wealth yan ah – parang Imeldific jewels lols. Maimbestigahan nga.

    Nobe – own up. Where na these blogs? Ahahaha

  22. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    @ceblogger: hahaha! ginawa ba naman ako imelda ng mga blogs. hehe. secret.:)

  23. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    @jan geronimo: ikaw! ikaw pala ang matagal ko nang hinahanap.

    7. BLANK (no more). wink

  24. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    @jan geronimo: I’m probably under their watchlist for wasting so much of their precious bandwidth. ahaha!

    BTW If only words could kill, ang pinatatamaan mo sa Pull Up, Kid:..” ay matagal na sanang nagpalutang-lutang sa ilog pasig. hehe. 🙂

  25. jan geronimo

    June 22, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Di naman, Nobe. Rubber bullets lang po yun. Pang disperse lang sa unruly company. Masyadong feeling Imeldific eh. Di naman sya royalty. Supposedly matalino naman. Okay na un – na-disown na ako nun. Which is quite a relief. Kasi too close for comfort eh – sobrang feeling nya eh.

    Hey, thanks for considering me in your list.

    O, di ba, sabi nga ni Jehz na pinulot daw nya sa “Lost” – the universe has a way of course-correcting. It’s one of those things, I guess. Thanks. “,)

    thus the blog, writing to exhale.. 🙂

    June 22, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Hi Nobe,

    Magpopromote lang ako dito.

    My blog belongs to the creative writing niche. Poetry and creative writing are my specialties. It is my goal to influence people to come back to writing. You can view the archives when you come visit. I hope you would.


  28. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    hello Z, welcome to my blog. 🙂

    wait.. Z as in Zorro? hahaha. jk!

  29. zorlone

    June 22, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    Zebra!!! LOL!

    I wasn’t expecting that. he he he! I like your sense of humor!


  30. ceblogger

    June 22, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    hi nobe i remember full well your previous site, and those witty lines and the controversial images. nasundan ko pa yun, pati na yung wedding mo and blogging hiatus mo. stalker ba? di naman. it happened na nabasa ko lang. haha.

    btw, i promoted your deariago site sa twitter. it’s kinda unique. so far wala pang kaparehas, except yung previous site mo.

    And i linked this site na rin in my blogroll.

  31. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    my goodness, naalala mo pa iyon. i closed that site kasi inaway away pa nila ako doon while i was pregnant. i was stealing pictures daw! hahaha. i was D BITCH of the internet community at that time.

    kaya ngayon yung dear iago, site ko complete with PHOTO CREDITS na. hahaha!

  32. Nobe

    June 22, 2009 at 10:41 pm

    @Z: sabi ko na nga ba zebra e!

  33. aajao

    June 23, 2009 at 9:44 am

    wow. dinaig mo pa ako. you already have seven and i only have three. parang baligtad. hehe.. anyway, i’m still rooting for your other blog, dear iago dot com. you shuld have entered it in your list. pwede yun. and btw, to make your votes valid, kailangan yata naka-post mga sponsors nung writing project.

    go, go, go, Nobe!


  34. Nobe

    June 23, 2009 at 10:21 am

    OIC. hehe. thanks. ilalagay ko mamaya. 🙂

    June 23, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    I really hate it when I have to make a pitch for my blog… that doesn’t sound influential, does it?

    but everybody’s doing, what the heck!

    so please, do drop my blog and take a look…

    wait a minute! you’ve been there! So I guess, you already have your opinion then

    oh well, at least my friends are in your list 😉


    I can still partake of the pizza

  36. jan geronimo

    June 23, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    Nobe, can I make a personal pitch for my two great friends? Roy and Zorlone.

    They’re both great bloggers and even greater friends. Roy is my Jerry Seinfeld. That’s one of the good things that endeared him to me. Roy has a passion for one-liners, too. Just like you are.

    Zorlone or Doc Z is a great poet buddy. Do you love poetry? He’s the man! Please consider him too in your list. Else he’d camp right here and do a rain dance. Ahahaha. Right, Doc Z?

    Thank you for “finding” me. “,)

  37. zorlone

    June 23, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    I got back as soon as I heard my name again. Yup! Rain dance worked so far Jan.

    Nobe, Jan was right about having good friends online. I can count a handful cause it’s hard to place your trust to anyone online these days, same with everyday life for that matter, of course you know that already.

    June 24, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    Hi Nobe!

    I really appreciate that you mentioned my letters to my wife. Unfortunately, it was started April 2008 which disqualifies it from the competition.

    Still, I would like to thank you for the gesture


  41. Nobe

    June 24, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    really? dang! i was really touched by the words in that blog. just one month short and u would have qualified. ill let it stay there until i find a replacement though. 🙂

    June 24, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    wow isa na lang makukumpleto na ..

  43. Amor

    June 24, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    Hi Nobe, maybe you can replace Letters to Mama with, parehas naman na kay Kuya Roy yun. Just suggesting. 🙂

    At sa number 10 pwede mong isama si Doc Z o si Snow. Kung pwde lang naman. Hahaha! nangi-ngi-alam ako sa list ng may list. 🙂

  44. Nobe

    June 24, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    Good morning, Nobe.

    Maglalaba na sana ako nakita ko link ng top ten mo kay Janette Toral.

    I hate to be a spoilsport, but here goes. *in my best impersonation of Ms. Janette Toral:*

    “Please take note that “Ani-mo!!!” started blogging way before May 2008. Please update your entry and leave a link to my blog when you’re done. Thank you.”

    O, di ba? Parang siya na rin. Pssst. Nasa balay pa niya si Mam Janette, catching up on beauty sleep. Kaya pinangahasan ko na ito. Ahahaha.

    To sum up, you’ve to put on your blogging boots again and make the rounds. lols. Peace! By the way, I have a new logo. 🙂

  49. Nobe

    June 28, 2009 at 4:31 pm

    An art is not an art if not appreciated,
    with lines and colors from an artists mind.
    Longing for the awesome array – much awaited,
    the beauty and splendor created – now defined.

    Simple luxury of a forgotten vase – honored,
    sculptured to its finest tangible shape,
    Ever lush with a sense of distinct roar,
    artist dreams through his hands escaped.

    Thank you for the nomination!
