When it comes to lists of leaders in the tech industry, there is usually always one person who notes the lack of women appearing in them. And it’s no surprise they notice.
A Little List Analysis
I took a look at 14 lists that have come out over the last year for the top bloggers, social media marketers, search marketers, and entrepreneurs. The average number of women included is 34% IF you include three lists that were actually dedicated to women. In the other 11 lists that were a mixture, only an average of 16% of the people mentioned were women.
It’s not like there are not any awesome women out there – there just seems to be more men. Please don’t think I’m complaining – I’m not really. I have had the pleasure of being included in several of them, and am highly thankful for that!
Who Are These Women
This list includes female bloggers that cover a huge variety of topics in the blogosphere. They are not only bloggers, but many are also published authors, entrepreneurs, CEOs, experts in their niche, and overall inspirations.
I have included many well known female influences as well as some that are just starting out but have a very promising future in the blogging world that I have come across online, found in other lists, connected with in forums like the Third Tribe and the BlogcastFM Green Room, or met at events such as Blog World Expo and Social Media AZ. Many are pretty active bloggers, although some I include in hopes that they will get going again!
So without further ado, here are the fearless females in blogging, organized alphabetically by first name (as a few in the list go by pen name or don’t publicize their last name). Enjoy! Also, don’t miss the great giveaway at the end of the post!
