Jedi Bloggers in the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2009

The Jedi Bloggers (courtesy of Jan of Writing to Exhale), came out victorious from the Awards Night for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs of 2009. The dust has settled down and there are collateral losses; nevertheless, the impressive results are all worth it.

Congratulations to the organizer of the writing project – Janette Toral – for the wonderful adventure and for the valuable lessons learned.

These are the Top Ten Blogs for 2009

Kelvinonian Ideas 2.0
Tales from the Mom Side
Let’s Go Sago!

We would like to thank everyone who voted for these remarkable blogs. These are all “must-read” blogs; you must hop over and peruse their rousing and thought provoking posts.

Special mention goes to the Jedi Bloggers: Jan, Roy, Zorlone, Kelvin, Dee and Angel (honorary member)

Here’s to a new breed of blogs who truly “breathe blog” (courtesy of Roy of The Struggling Blogger).

Here is Dr. Lorenzo Bernardino’s – aka Zorlone’s heartwarming speech during that momentous event. It is an extemporaneous, touching delivery of a blogger who has carved his name from being an unknown into what he is now – an Influential Blogger, who has provided inspiration and motivation for “would be poets” and creative writers in the blogosphere . Way to go Zorlone!

Congratulations again Doc Z, Roy, Jan, Kelvin, Dee, Angel and the rest of the winners!

Thanks a lot for the mention. It brought a lump to my throat.

You are the moonbeam in the inky night;

the firefly of each wayward traveler.

You are the welcome shade in a scorching day;

the warm umbrage of refuge and love.

You are the sparkling rain in a humid weather;

the dewdrop in the morning dawn.

You are the joyful song in everyone’s heart;

the promise of another fruitful start.

You are the one who makes my life complete;

the breath of life into my soul.

You are the quiddity of my being;

The one I would love forever.

I often wonder what am I to you;

the moonbeam or the shade of blue?

I guess this won’t really matter,

just as long as I have you!

Ever nominated my Random Thoughts Blog which is DQ because of its date of creation. It was Jena Isle’s Random Thoughts that was qualified.

Thank you guys for nominating my blog. I would have composed a poem for each of you if I had the talent of Doc Z’s poetic inspiration, so I just dedicate one poem to all of you. More power and may the force be with you!
