It all started with a single thought of traveling the world before turning 30 – that’s approximately 9 years. Between Coordinates is mainly established to hold posts about my travels and my plans to circle the globe. Instead, it became a portal for some people to relate about the places they have been to, experiences they had when they started traveling (especially packing light), and just having those “spur of the moment” conversations practically anything under the sun (life per se, struggles, passion, finances, the importance of living and work). 🙂

I am deeply honored to have been considered as an “influential” blogger by some people that I’ve met and even some people that I haven’t. I’ll take this spot to thank Cris Reyes of Pinay Thrill Seeker for mentioning me in her website and also Kuya James of Journeying James for recognizing me. This made me think that my daily writings could “possibly” have the power to affect a person, thing, or any course of events beyond my control. The feeling is amazing! (Oops. Sorry for the exaggeration.) 😀


The Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs for 2012 Writing Project is on its 6th year and aims to highlight the impact “new” blogs have towards its readers this year. The blogs to be considered here are those that have started last June 1, 2011 until today. The blogs now are gradually gaining a huge amount of readership, following, influence, and “fascinates” the reader in so many ways. The bloggers behind every blog established it for various reasons such as though expression, sharing of knowledge and insight, building a movement, events reporting or coverage and some for profit.

Here are some of the blogs that have captured my attention:
