Every year even though I have no new blog, it's always my hobby to join this writing project which recognizes the new blogs which emerge significantly in the world wide web. And yes, three of my major blogs were proud products of this writing project!  

This year, my excitement was tripled because I have my new blog which is this very own Runner Rocky. To be part of this writing project is Runner Rocky's advance birthday gift to this blog as it will celebrate its first year birthday this November.   

This Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2015 Writing Project which is now on its 8TH Year seeks in identifying new and emerging blogs who are making an impact to its readers in 2014. These are blogs that started anytime from May 2014 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. In my case, this blog Runner Rocky was born to dedicate to my other hobby which is running and fitness routines.

As our usual tradition, we are picking the Top 10 new blogs which we think most influential this year. Now, what do you think are my top picks? Well, here they are:

1. Runner Rocky - Of course taking the No. 1 spot is my very own blog.
