First of all, Congratulations to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean Underground River for being in the TOP 28 Finalists in the campaign for the Top 7 Natural Wonders of the World!
Now, it is time to campaign to all our friends and family to cast their final vote for Puerto Princesa Underground River! From now until 2011, the top 28 finalists will be put to a global popular vote. The top 7 Natural Wonders of the World in terms of votes win. (The estimate is that there will be over 1 Billion votes!)
In the last global voting done for the New 7 Wonders of the World, which registered over 100 Million votes, the founder Bernard Weber shared his analysis of the votes. Here are my top 3 insights:
1. The highest number of voters were children and the young people of the world. Our campaign should focus on them.
2. Most of the votes came from developing countries instead of the developed worlds. Don’t underestimate the power of Filipinos and Asians.
3. We need to learn from the effective voting campaign for Mali, Timbuktu vs. the failed campaign of Alhambra in Spain.
The 7 Natural Wonders of the World Campaign is now on Phase 3 where the New7Wonders Panel of Experts have chosen the Top 28 Finalists.
I just voted for my Top 7 Natural Wonders of the World. What is your Top 7? Vote for Puerto Princesa Underground River Now! (Yes, you need to vote again for this last and final round.)
Live an Awesome Life,

P.S. There seems to be a bug in the voting system. I voted for Puerto Princesa, Halong Bay, Great Barrier Reef, Maldives, Yushan, Sundarbans, and Komodo but I got these confirmed results:
At least the Puerto Princesa Underground river is there. I’m not sure where to report this. Did you experience the same bug?
