Truthfully, I hate using the term “women bloggers” because it doesn’t sound correct to me; that said, it is widely used. Just not here. “Female bloggers” sounds worse. 😉 I decided to go with chick bloggers and hope the term doesn’t offend. I am a chick through and through and use it with only the utmost respect. 😉
Without further ado, here are 5 outstanding bloggers you should check out.
1. Sonia Simone
Characteristics: Funny, witty, and of this list, is the one that shares the most similarities in writing style with me. If you like my blog, you will like hers.
Topics: Many. Blogging, social media, communication in general, business, and related topics.
Recommended post: SlowBlogging. Successful blogging is not always about speed to market, especially if what you are really aiming for is high quality content. There are many bloggers out there pumping out 30 posts in 30 days, and that’s wonderful, but it’s OK to take your time on the really great ideas.
2. Tamar Weinberg
Characteristics: Brilliant, constructive, and always on-point.
Topics: Blogging and social media.
Her blog: Techipedia.com
3. Kiesha Easley
Characteristics: Encouraging and creative.
Topics: Blogging, social media and Internet marketing.
Her blog: Weblogbetter.com
Recommended post: I Threw SEO to the Wind. Read this post to discover how writing great content and promoting your blog well is more effective than stressing out over SEO.
4. Marie Forleo
Characteristics: Edgy, motivational and engaging. An impressive video blogger, also.
Topics: Success, marketing, life, among other things.
Her blog: MarieForleo.com
Recommended Post: Want a Booming Local Business? Try This. This is a great example of how Marie engages her readers, and is also a great example of video blogging done well.
5. Jennifer Brown Banks
Characteristics: Top-notch writer. I wish I could write half as well.
Topics: Writing, blogging and related topics.
Recommended Post: “Kids Don’t Try This At Home!” Do All “Good Writers” Make “Good Bloggers”? My answer: No, not necessarily and blogging is not a “write” of passage for writers. This is just a really interesting topic from a great blogger who just happens to be a fantastic writer, as well. Actually, you should go read this post and leave a comment because this is an on-going debate, I think.
Ones You Might Have Missed
I also wanted to include a few who don’t focus on blogging, social media or marketing. What I like about the following blogs is the personality and interest in the content found in each of them.
Lucy is a new college graduate, a new children’s book review blogger and is currently hunting down her future career in publishing (ah, to be fresh out of school again…). She is incredibly dedicated to blogging, and there’s something about the whimsical nature of her blog that is attractive. Lucy is also very down to earth and has been a great person to interact with on Twitter.
Recommended Post: Young Adult fiction today: What the market needs. This is one of Lucy’s longer posts, and it demonstrates that her knowledge and understanding of books goes well beyond just reading the back covers and regurgitating blurbs. She’ll go far in her career. Good luck, Lucy!
Michelle is very honest and her writing style is natural and unpretentious. She finds a way to weave herself into her posts, and that is very cool. Even if you don’t like cooking (like me) you will find Michelle easy to relate to.
Recommended Post: Chicken Scampi and a Funny Story
Whether you are pre, peri or post-menopausal, this blog is hilarious and good reading. That’s really all I can say about it because every time I think about the blog, the corners of my mouth turn up :). Life after menopause must be funny – at least, that’s how these ladies make it seem!
Recommended Post: Mary: Sticky Note. My thoughts exactly.
That’s the round-up! This post was fun to write, so you can expect more of them in the future. I have a growing list of chick bloggers to recommend, so just hold tight because yours might be next!
If you have a chick blogger to recommend, feel free to leave the link here – even if it’s yours! If there’s one thing we can start to learn from dudes, it’s how to toot your own horn.
