Philippines Best of Blogs




While waiting for Migs to finish his pinoy blog aggregator and search project, I thought I’d help him a little more by creating a directory for all great commendable pinoy blogs out there.

When I labeled it Philippines Best of Blogs, I mean no splogs, un-updated, non-sense blogs included and with the word “best” loosely used to reason out for rejected entries.

I have enough sources of blog listings from PinoyBlog and PinoyTopBlogs but I’d like to start from scratch and allow the bloggers themselves to submit their blogs so they can come up their own descriptions which btw is used in the search feature. There’s some sort of categorization there but if you think I missed something, please leave a note or a suggestion.

I’d like this one to be a DMOZ of some sort for Philippine blogs. Again, just to clarify – blog by Filipinos or about the Philippines/Filipinos (if you’re not a Filipino) are qualified on the list, subject to approval. I was originally planning for a wiki but I thought it would be too tedious.

Go ahead and add your blog, your friend’s blog or any other notable pinoy blogs you know (just use the search before you do so).

Update: Please ignore the reciprocal links field. No need to do that part.

    I don’t know when I will be done. Continuous work and learning in progress!

    In the meantime, I suggest:

    Join TailRank, and upload your OPML file containing the feeds you read. You can export this from your feed reader, if you’re using one.

    Submit the same OPML file to Megite. See the right hand column of my Megite page containing PinoyTopBlogs feeds.

    Your mailer has been sending the PinoyTopBlogs Advisory continuously for the past hour. Might want to look into it.

    once again.. a cool idea! 8)

    but may i suggest an “art” and/or “literature” category? there are lots of pinoy artists out there…

  6. vonjobi says:

    i’m actually a DMOZ editor. once the categories are solid enough, i suppose i can take care of “culture” :)

  7. yuga says:

  9. yuga says:

  10. masterbetong says:

    i submitted my site 2 days ago but it was not listed until now.

  11. yuga says:

    @ masterbetong

    I checked our logs and your blog wasn’t on it. Can you resubmit? Thanks!

  12. vonjobi says:

    i think i submitted my blog under “culture.” did you reclassify under “academic”?

  13. yuga says:

    Yes, I did. I thought it was more appropriate there. :)

    Off-topic question: How much do you earn in adsense?

  15. Miguel says:

    Needless to say… I never finished (or really started!) my project.

    It’s hard to code for fun when you’re already coding for work!

  16. myRobert says:

    It seems that the add a blog link doesn’t work. Or I can’t find it.

  17. flora says:

    It’s weird. When I just ignored the reciprocal link url a message appeared >A link to http://www.yugatech.com/blogs/ could not be found at the specified URL. I don’t know, maybe I am just being slow on this? hehe…

    I hope my blog is qualified.
