Then on Saturday, there is the Company and Richard Poon at the New World Hotel Grand Ballroom.

My 2010 Influential list of bloggers

Here are my ten influential blog nominees for 2010 in random order

1.  SPIT (Silly People's Improv Theater) - - It's sad that their home (Mag:net High Street) met its demise recently, but I believe that we will see them in a weekly haunt sometime soon.

(Update: The group has their own blog as well)

2. The NomNom Club - - Last year's winner Jonel of Let's Go Sago spins off his food blogging into a blog of its own.

3. 100Araw - - Being an election year, it is important that an election blog is nominated for this year.

4. Manila Concert Scene - - It is important to know that there is someone covering the music scene a little bit.

5. The Art of Changemaking - - This blog by Nina Terol-Zialcita is about the making a change, a change for the better and how we can get that done.

6. When in Manila - - Vince Golangco has made the successful transition from being in the new media towards the mainstream media with his current stint as a DJ for Mellow 94.7. But we all know him more as the man behind this travel and lifestyle blog.

7. Blogwatch - - Bloggers covering the news the way the mainstream media does it.

8. Underdog Boxing - - Carlo Pamintuan is a boxing fanatic. It is important that a new breed of sports bloggers emerge to become the new age reporters and observers of the sports scene.

9. Go Ateneo - - For anything Ateneo sports, this is the place to go to.

10. Nonoy For President - - Nothing like partisan sports blogging armed with a sense of seriousness and humor. Named after former Finals MVP and current PBA Draft applicant Nonoy Baclao as a form of tribute to his constant pwnage of whoever crossed his path.
