It's another time of the year that my favorite blogging project, the Emerging Influential Blogs Writing Project opens. Definitely, I have my entry post giving you my Top 10 new blogs which emerged this 2013.

Since 2010, it's my hobby of joining this project. That year, my first entry was my entertainment blog TV Series Craze which is now a very popular site in the world-wide web. Then last year, it was my newly born lifestyle blog, The Lifestyle Portal which took the No. 1 spot on my list. This year, I have no new blog to put on my Number 1 list but since it's my passion and hobby to join, I pick Top 10 new blogs from my blogger friends and acquaintance.         

The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2013 Writing Project is now on its 7TH Year. It seeks in identifying new and emerging blogs who are making an impact to its readers in 2013. These are blogs that started anytime from July 1, 2012 to the present. These blogs are gradually gaining a considerable amount of readership, following, influence and fascinating the reader in various ways. The bloggers behind them established the blog for various reasons such as expression of thoughts, sharing of knowledge and insight, building a movement, events reporting or coverage, and some for profit.
