Women in Blogging: 115+ Fearless Female Bloggers

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!

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 (links no longer available). In the other 11 lists that were a mixture, only an average of 16% of the people mentioned were women. There have also been a couple of editorial additions to the list, based on proven track records and industry authority.

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 within popular online forums, or met at events such asB log World Expos and, for my area, 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! (These ladies are listed in alphabetical order for simplified navigation. Also, a few have been reluctantly removed after the publishing of this list because they have seemed to drop off the face of the earth and their links are broken.)

HI Kristi,
You are such a dear for compiling this amazing list of women blogger. And you are even more awesome cause you have me on it. Thank you! I am honored for the mention.
Some women on this list i know, and love, but there are still some I need to check out. Wow! We women do rock the world! 🙂
Its always empowering to see successful women comfortable in their ow skin, being themselves and shining.
Thank you again Kristi. You are awesome.
Much love,

Of course you would be in it, you silly! 🙂 Zeenat, you are an amazing blogger but an even more amazing person. No surprise in you being on the list my dear. The real shock is to have me on here. Gosh is this a beautiful day or what!

@Farnoosh,- awww…you are a sweetheart! And how funn that we are here in this beautiful list together.

@RObin- You know I love you…and your words here just make me do a happy wappy jumpy dance…YAY! Thank you for being you and for being in my loving circle of love. love and hugs~

@Bishwajeet- oh my…am I in your city?? I had no idea! I am gonna come over to your side of the blog o sphere and then maybe stalk you 😉 How fun to find another person from the same geographical location!! Thank you for your kind words 🙂

Hi dear Kristi, seriously honored to be on this list – I really am – and such an amazing resource to go through and check over the next days or weeks since I like to take my time to get to know new bloggers well….
On the topic of men vs. women, my only thought is this: Only the best should (and eventually do) float up to the top. To me, it shouldn’t matter if you are a guy or a gal, if you come from one end of the world or another, so long as you are the BEST in that field or for whatever list you are being featured – or for that speaker slot at Blogworld (that was a long debate too) – then you deserve it fully – and if we only focus on the best of the best, and not any other factors, then the true numbers show up without a bit of discrimination…..they really do – and for me, all through my career (12+ years at large and small corporations) and all my interactions in other communities, men are hugely supportive of women succeeding but never of anyone just complaining. I think we just have to get on with the game and show what we have, which is no doubt what all the women here on this list are doing, and you being on top of it all. I am so happy to know you dear Kristi and that lunch is so on me next Blogworld :)!

I haven’t felt like there was discrimination, per say, in the lists (hence why I mentioned I wasn’t complaining). 🙂 I have just been following women bloggers that I expect to see on these lists but aren’t usually mentioned. I even read on a blog post somewhere that one blogger felt like there weren’t enough women bloggers out there – she was wrong, but I thought it might be partially due to the small percentage of ones that are included in big time listings. Blogging seems to be a pretty equal playing field, especially from what I noted at Blog World. Just thought I’d shed some light on some great women who deserve to be on every list, including you! 🙂

Kristi, I wasn’t talking about YOU my dear (so sorry if it came across that way!) – I was just expressing my thoughts on this topic because it comes up more often than not and I wanted to emphasize that there really is greatness everywhere and no one is trying to hide the women from the lime light. It just seemed like an appropriate place to share those thoughts, that’s all :)! Your recognition here is extremely kind and very well thought-out …. and I am glad you don’t think there is any discrimination at all, I don’t either – we have a fantastic playing field here and we should do with it as much as we can….thank you again for including me among such good company!

Hi Kristi,
This is super of you to do this!! It’s such an honor to be included here among all of these wonderful women bloggers. I’m excited to be considered “Fearless!” – it makes me feel all tingly inside 🙂
Anyway, please count me in on this giveaway.
To share what I did:
Guest posting has made the biggest difference in my blogging life. I wrote a guest post for the former owner of WeBlogBetter and he liked it so much that he thought I would make a good new owner for the blog – I didn’t realize he was looking for someone to take it over, but he had a lot on his plate at the time. Ever since I took over the blog, I’ve been doing my best to produce quality content geared to help and inspire other bloggers.
Also, having my blog featured on Lisa Irby’s blog (another great woman blogger on this list), has made a tremendous difference as well – I was afraid to submit the blog for her review at first, but I decided to toss my fears aside and just go for it! I’m glad I did.

That’s an awesome story of how you got to own the site – proves the power of guest posting right there! You have been producing great content – I remember when I first saw the site, I was definitely impressed! 🙂

Hi Kristi
Thank for the including me on the list 🙂
I an following the twitter list as well, thanks for putting it together.

Birds is a multi author blog and I am privileged to blog with such strong, purposeful business women.

Holy Moly what an awesome roundup of fabulous women you got there Kristi!

And THANK YOU a million times for including me here :). I’m honored and flattered to be on the same page as some of these absolutely brilliant “blogaladies” – many of whom I religiously read and admire – including you. But you already know that lol.

Kristi, this was an excellent idea for a post and a wonderful way to acknowledge the hard working, well-spoken, intelligent, admirable, talented, bloggers, business minds and leaders that are women.

I look forward to going through this list one by one and getting to know those ladies that I don’t already. Looks like I’ve got my reading set for the next couple of weeks lol ;).

Thanks again for everything. Coming from someone like you, it means a heck of a lot to part of this bunch!

Happy Monday

Ooops, I new had forgotten to add something :).

Hello again Kristi,
I’d love to enter the giveaway :). As to what I did:

*Well, I’ve told everyone I spoke to in the last 2 days – and their mother – that the uber cool, popular and famous Kristi Hines wrote a post about 125 awesome and fearless women bloggers – and that I was in it :). I’ve been rather popular all day lol.

*I tweeted the crap out of this. And I’m sure I’ll tweet again a few more times – in small doses though – as not to bombard my followers ;).

* I shared it on my Facebook group (nittyGriddy) where some really cool folks have been stopping by to leave their ‘likes’ and 2 cents. And even better: some friends also shared it on their profiles – just cause they think us gals are uber cool and brilliant in a fabulous way :).

* I just joined the “Women in Blogging” LinkedIn group – but it’s still pending approval. Hope they let me in lol ;).

* I subscribed to the Kikolani newsletter – although for some reason I could have sworn I had already done that. Hmmmm…well just in case I haven’t before, I did so now :).

* I attempted to create a pretty widget where I could boast about being on Kikolani’s “125 Fearless Female Bloggers” list – but, it didn’t look so great – CSS and I aren’t that close. But soon, when my new blog redesign is up and running.

* I thought of writing a short post on my blog (started it) – and realized I would want to mention and congratulate every single one of these women – first and foremost you. And if I do, it would be another list of 125 names lol. So, that one’s out for now, but you never know what else I could come up with in regards to that ;).

* I’m thinking about having t-shirts made (one in almost every color) saying “Hey. Look at Us gals” hahaha. But…modesty has its limits I suppose lol.

All that to say, thanks and to everyone who doesn’t win this DVD – I would still recommend that you buy one – I’m sure it will be great (seeing the women featured) and provide some A+ stories.


You’re welcome! I really liked the post you did on your birthday where you just talked about the things people didn’t know about you – it’s always great to see someone show their personal side as well! Enjoy the journey through the other great bloggers here!

Thanks a lot Kristi.
I had fun writing that post – although I hesitated quite a bit since I’m not really used to sharing that much in public or online lol.

But I’m glad I did it! It’s gotten some great comments and reviews and I’m thrilled with the fact that people found it entertaining to read.

Cheers to your continued success Kristi :). I’ll be looking forward to reading more great and useful posts from ya.

Kristie, what a tremendous list of powerful women bloggers you put together. I’m blushing 🙂

This is my first time seeing Gail’s pic, you’re a great detective too. I’ve got my work cut out for me keeping tabs on all these awesome gals. I’ll follow your Twitter list for sure.
Have a great week Kristie.

Kristi, oh Kristi, I just don’t know how to thank you. I am speechless and feels so humbled, thinking how I made it to this list of great female bloggers! 🙂

I have a confession to make, as Kristi and I haven’t had any form of interaction before. I discovered Kikolani around three months ago, the same time I started blogging! I knew how famous she is, and I made the right decision of connecting with her, both just on facebook & twitter. But, that’s the only communication I have with her. So to say that I’m surprised with being included in the list is an understatement – I could’t hide my excitement until now!

I look up to so many female bloggers from my niche, and if I may add a few, here are their sites:
Emma Tiebens:
Amanda Marie:
Jennifer May :
Layla (from Toby & Layla):

Outside of my niche, of course there is “the” Marie Forleo…
Marie Forleo:

I am thanking you from my hometown here in the Philippines with an unreliable connection (the reason it took me sometime to go through most of the comments & the list itself). I’ll be back in Singapore this Friday, and I can’t wait to connect with the rest of the females in this list! ^_^

Being a part of this list is both a great blessing and definitely a challenge for me. A challenge to always learn from the best (such as yourself & the women in this list), and to take action, NO MATTER WHAT 🙂

BIG thanks and BIG hugs to you all! 🙂


I have a Twitter list, I call it the Butterflies , I was about to create a nice post like this one , but when I open my email today I found out that you was faster than me 🙂

Anyways, thank you for the awesome list or Butterflies!

I’ve had a similar (but somewhat different) post regarding women – sitting in my Drafts folder since May lol.

What’s even worse, is that it’s been half way finished since then. Looks like it may sit there a while longer.

But I think Kristi has done a hell of a job here! And it means quite a bit when it comes from someone like her.

Cheers to your lovely butterflies :).

Hi Kristie,

I am speechless…OK not that speechless that I can’t say THANK YOU. What an awesome list of women and what an honor to be on it.

I know we’ve only touched base a couple of times but each time has been great and I’m really looking forward to watching it grow.

This list must of taken you forever to create…you once again raised the bar! It’s going to take me days to go through it and see who I’m not following on Twitter so I can connect with them. 😉

Hey listen I was going to email you if I didn’t hear a response from you, but since I’m here, check out my post today. I’m creating something and it would truly be an honor if you could participate in. And it will only take a few minutes out of your day. 😉

Thanks again and awesome job as always!! Ciao.

Thanks again

Wow and wow again. Do you ever sleep Kristi??!! What a list 🙂 I was very surprised to see myself on it. Being fairly new to blogging I have so much to learn. Some of these awesome women I already follow on Twitter and read their blogs regularly.

However heaps I have just been introduced to. Have bookmarked this page and will work my way through them all. I am sure I am going to be learning even more. Thanks for including me on this list Kristi. I am smiling and although it’s nearing the end of the day in this part of the world, can’t resist going to visit some of these ladies now.

Patricia Perth Australia

I do sleep. I’m just super busy during the waking hours. 🙂 I’m glad you are getting to add some great ladies to the ones you’re already following through this list.

Kristi, this is a fabulous list and is going to keep me busy for a long time checking out the women, the blogs and following them on twitter. Thank you so much for including me in this illustrious list of women. Also, great idea on the Women in Business video give-away – it’s a very inspiring film.

Blog on!

The video was part of the inspiration leading into this post actually. It started when I entered their contest, and when I didn’t win it, I preordered right away. I popped the audio version onto my iPod and listened to all of the women’s stories. Very motivational to hear them! 🙂

WOW! Thanks so much for including me in such an awesome list of bloggers Kristi.. this list is amazing..definitely going to set aside some reading time as I saw several bloggers I hadn’t yet run across that I’d love to get to know further.

I agree it seems women are a bit of the minority at times when it comes to lists like these, unless it’s a list geared specifically for women..hopefully with posts like this, the tides will turn a little more in an even keeled favor. 😉

Hugs, hope your holiday was awesome!


I have always known that there are so many great women blogging – just thought it was time to get them showcased! It’s really awesome reading the comments and knowing that people are discovering new bloggers here!


What an honor to be included on this list of amazing women. And what you dont’ know is that your blog is (and has been for a long time) on my list of “never miss reads” on a weekly basis.

The information, resources, thoughts and ideas you share are truly invaluable and even though we’ve never met personally, I see your blog and your face and consider you “friend.” Oh the beauty (and the power) of social media.

Thanks again so much for including me here – what a lovely treat to start the week with. I already know and follow many of these amazing women, but can’t wait to check out and start stalking the rest right away :))

Take care and thank you – I’m so very honored.


Thanks Shelly! That really does mean a lot. It’s always great to know I have the amazing support of online friends, which are just as powerful as those offline. 🙂

What an amazing list Kristi! I don’t know how you do all you do, but I am so HONORED to be on this list. I’m looking forward to checking out all these blogs and bloggers.

This is a great list of woman to follow! Thank you for putting the time and effort into curating such a great list. Couple of woman you should keep an eye out for in 2011 are:

Meghan Wilker @irishgirl
Nancy Lyons @nylons or

Jennifer Kane @jenkaneco
Kary Delaria @karyd or

Another great blogger and person is Erika Napoletano @redheadwriting

Have a great week!

I almost forgot and I should not have and I apologize Tara!

Tara Hunt @misrogue & Co-Founder of

Ok I am done now! Sorry about that. I still totally dig the list you put together and now have found a whole new group of fabulous people to keep an eye out and follow. I completely understand the data analysis takes you where it goes to form these lists. Thank you for publishing how the data lead you to this list, this makes it easier for most to digest.

What advice would you give this group of woman to show up in the analysis?

Advice… I guess it’s all about marketing and getting on people’s radars. I’m sure that the lists I have been on have been the result of regular interaction with those bloggers in their comments, on multiple social networks, and so on. It takes time and dedication (not sure I was that widely noticed until I had been at it for at two years). But if you’re creating good content and really engaging with lots of bloggers, it will happen!


Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. This comments section is really cool too! I’ve met even more bloggers through it.

Well, it’s a good thing I’m prepared to wait for time to work it’s magic, then. Good to know I’m on the right track.

Hi Keith,

Kudos on Erika from Red Head Writing. I’m a big fan of hers.

Not only does she tell it like it is, but she has a great way with words. She’s an excellent and captivating writer. Much like the title of this post here – fearless – is exactly her style and tone.

I’ll check out the other 2 you mentioned as well. Good to know.
Thanks for sharing.

Cool Ingrid and Kristi! Krisiti I just a fyi I have come back to this list 6-7 times this week to show people how to find new people. Plus again would like to give a virtual high five for curating such usable information! Plus discovering all this great woman!!!

Leila – you’re the bomb, thank for you that Ms. NinuNina :).

It’s quite an honor to be on Kristi’s list! And she’s done an amazing job of rounding up these Super Women – and I have to say, I’m totally psyched about being included among them. YaY :-).

Thanks again.

You definitely should go through the names and blogs of those you don’t already know. Each one has a ton to offer and all the ones I do know and follow are brilliant writers. I’ve learned a boat load from them.

What an amazing list of people…and truly very well respected women making strides in our world! I know several on this list, and will just echo what you’ve said – these are fearless female blogger making a difference!

So, so awesome to see you highlighting all of these wonderful women of the world wide web…and beyond!!

Great round-up! I think it’s great you included seasoned veterans as well as women just starting out. Great range and variety of bloggers…

Thanks for compiling! I found lots of new people to follow!

Yes, I wanted to have a bit of both – people that if you haven’t heard of, you should, and people that you probably haven’t, but again, you should! 🙂


This looks like a lot of work and I’m sure it will pay off in spades. Thank you for including me in your list! The only person missing up there is you!


I was pleasantly surprise to be mentioned on this list. Good I follow you and I always click your links to read your content. As I read everyone’s bio and requested everyone on Twitter I noticed I was listed and that made my day an probably my entire week! Thanks Kristi!

I would also like to enter the giveaway. I Tweeted & share on FB and I’ll subscribe to the newsletter and linked in group.

Have a great week!


What a fantastic list! And huge thanks for the inclusion, very much appreciated 🙂 It’s even more awesome to see so many great names and faces here — loads of women who I know on Twitter, or chat to on Skype, or see at conferences…

Will be checking out some of the new names to me, as well. 🙂

Thanks for putting this together!

Thank you so much for including me in this post! It’s so funny as I was reading through the list, I thought to myself: It would be neat to be included in a list like this one day. 🙂 So imagine my big old grin when I saw my name included. How exciting! Thanks again and I totally love your work and appreciate your support.

Hi Kristi!

Wow, what an awesome tribute to all of us women bloggers here 🙂

Thank you so much for making this and sharing this and bringing more awareness to each of our work – and thank you so much for including me too 🙂

You are and have always been so generous with your talents and kindness on the web, it is such an honor and pleasure to know you 🙂

You’re welcome. I haven’t gotten to visit as much as I’d like, but I love how you have the three blogs that compliment each other so well for spiritual and physical well being, plus the beauty of Evolving Scenes. It’s great to know you as well! 🙂

Hi Elizabeth,

I have to admit, I don’t read a lot of sports blogs. But now that you mention it, the one I do read is Forty Deuce. It’s a witty / humorous blog on tennis. I’d love it if you would share more female bloggers in the sporting industry here in the comments!

Female Sports Bloggers? Hmm.. I’m totally into sports and haven’t seen too many women bloggers. Be sure to come back and list a few, Elizabeth. 🙂

PS I love the diversity of this list too!

This is definitely one of the most well-rounded lists of women bloggers I’ve seen, and I’m so pleased to recognize a number of them.

The recognition is awesome. Thank you for putting this together, for promoting these women, and for keeping up such a helpful blog.

Cheers, Kristi!

Thanks Tia! There are certainly a number of niches I missed out on, but I would have been compiling the list forever if I got into those. I’m glad lots of people have been suggesting those bloggers that I missed!

Dear Kristi, I just love you for doing this for so many wonderfully dynamic women!! What an honor to be included here. Wow!! I’m quite stunned. I have always admired your work and incredible uplifting energy. To be recognized by someone whom I look up to, is just thrilling.

This is an astounding resource for me. It took a lot of work and time to put this together. I look forward to connecting with these other women bloggers. The whole post is powerful because you have not only honored us all, but in bringing us together, you have acknowledged women as a powerfully positive force in the world. Bless your heart for such a generous gift. I’m very touched by it. Hugs, Robin

Hi Kristi,
I’m so delighted that you are shining a light on talented women bloggers. I’ve found it curious that even in the personal development field men are listed far more than women. This is an amazing list and I look forward to discovering more smart and inspiring women. Farnoosh Brock, Tess Marshal, Evita Ochel, Zeenat Syal, Robin Easton, and Mary Jaksch are a few who inspire me regularly.

I’m thrilled and grateful to be include among these fearless stars. Thank you so much.

One of your keynote characteristics is boundless generosity, which you have demonstrated once again with this resourceful list.

Hi Kristi,

Yap! I know I’m a…boy but to be sincere I know most of these Women and they’re doing a lot to contribute to the blogosphere. I haven’t seen must list about women bloggers and this sums it up!

Guess what? I’ve been wanting to guest post for lots of women bloggers for a long time and I think this list will make work easier for me 😉

Thanks so much for the awesome list!

Incredible list! I have no idea how you came up with all these phenomenal women bloggers, but I am so grateful! Thank you~!

My favs? Geez so many! Ok here goes: Cori Padgett, Mari Smith, Erica Douglass, and Marjorie Clayman

Other fantastic female bloggers? (well there’s Me, of course! haha) and Martha Giffen of; MJ Schrader at; Kelly Maria Clark at; Lynette Patterson at – and tons more!

Thanks for the suggestions! Coming up with everyone was pretty simple – there were about 50 that I knew off the top of my head, and as I went to their sites, I would see other familiar names that I’d have to add on. 🙂

That’s pretty impressive! I’ve only been actively blogging for 2 years, although I have done it on and off for 10. To be seriously engaged for 7 years – I would love to see a post on how blogging has changed from then till now.

This is a great master list. I know for myself, I like to keep my lists shorter, but some of these I have connected with via social networking, and others I still need to meet. A few of these I have met in person and that list actually grows all the time.

I met Liz Strauss at WordCamp Chicago 2009 and it was awesome to meet her. I am going through getting sponsorship to try to go to SOBcon 2011. Apparently Chris Brogan will be there too… my chance to possibly interview him…lol

On the one hand, I love this list! It’s got a ton of new women for me to check out and I always like to see women acknowledged.

On the other hand, I hate that there has to be a list of “women” bloggers in order to be recognized. I’d prefer we were all just bloggers with no distinction needed in order to get a little love.

I agree. The inspiration behind the post is that some really amazing women in blogging never seem to get mentioned, even though they have as many Twitter followers / readers as some of the others in lists, maybe because of their niches or whatever the reason. I thought this way, I could hit both the A-listers and ones that I know will be one day as well.

Wow! What an awesome list of female bloggers. I follow several of these women already – shout out to Ann Smarty, the Outspoken Media ladies, and several others!

I am sure there are even more wonderful women who are blogging that we don’t know about. Sometimes, we just get drowned out by the mass of men in our industries, which is too bad. Come on ladies! Blog proud and loud! (Some of these ladies are already making their voices heard! Woo hoo!)

One outstanding female blogger who I would love to add to the list is Heather Lloyd-Martin over at Heather not only tackles topics related to content marketing, SEO copywriting, and client relations, but she also blogs about roadblocks that cause you to get in your own way. Sometimes the timing of her blogs is scary, especially when she touches on an issue that I am struggling with, but haven’t mentioned.

Thanks again for highlighting these women and for the Twitter list to follow these amazing bloggers.

I was shown this blog as a list of Fearless Female Bloggers. Frankly i was rather surprised to see very little in mental health. Most of these folks appear to be coaches, bloggers who write about blogging, gardeners etc. I’m sure these are all fabulous women…but fearless? Perhaps for ypur next list you can take a look at some of the really brave work that’s being done to help women in the venue of MH Blogging?

I consider many of them fearless because, if you read their bios / posts, they write about topics / experiences that are extremely personal and would be tough for anyone to share on a worldwide platform. Especially the women in the personal development area. I’m not sure I could even be as open as some of these ladies are on some subjects, but they were extremely inspirational.

I would be happy to hear about some of the bloggers you read, if you want to list them here! 🙂

Thank you so much Kristi for featuring me with so many other inspirational bloggers! I consider You at the top of this list. I you see just going for it – writing such great content. I really admire your work- keep it up!
Blessings ♥,


I kinda agree there; mental health doesn’t get the attention it should. I have a severe anxiety disorder and I’ve spent the past two years pushing through it and building a business. It is something I talk about rather openly in interviews and on my blog.

Because I am so open, people come to me with their stories. There are so many brave, fearless woman who are choosing to be discreet with their mental health issues.

I’m actually starting a site called ‘’ where I can encourage some of my friends to share their story. I have no idea how it’s going to work but just wanted to say that people aren’t ignoring mental health. I get annoyed at how it is shoved under the carpet but thats because there is no-one encouraging the conversation in their niche.

actually i don’t find that weird , women are presidents now , why cant they be bloggers ? and successful bloggers !!!!!!!!
well ,i do believe that this field is not made only for man because hen it comes to creation and writing and managing , women can handle themselves and be very known !!!
i do agree with the fact that many of women can have a bright and promising future since they are active and taking care of what they are doing !
Very nice Post , thank yOu for sharing it 🙂

Looks like a great DVD, count me in for the contest! I joined the LinkedIn group and shared this post on Facebook. As a fellow woman blogger, it’s great to see women featured in a list like this 🙂

Hi Kristi, thanks for the mention. This is an amazing list of women and I’m honored ot be a part of it. Of course you should be up there as well 😉

I love this list! It is a very diverse group of women, and it was my pleasure to meet some of them in person at Blog World 2010.

What a fabulous display of Link Love Kristi!

Hi Kristi, thanks for including me on your fab list.l What a resource and only one hot chick missing but I think we know who that it don’t we;) Off to join your LinkedIn group now and of course I’ve Stumbled, Tweeted and FBed this – delighted to share it. xox From me and all the koalas of Australia, Annabel

Thanks for the support Annabel, and for mentioning the koalas. My hubby and I will be in Melbourne at the end of January, and we’re looking forward to meeting some of those cuddly looking cuties!


I just wrote a long comment and can’t see it…either it’s waiting for review or I’ll write another. Just know I love that you’ve included me on your list. I live in the Southwest as well. Let’s do coffee…I’m thinking you’re in AZ?!? I’ll be back 😉

Hi Kristi,

I can’t thank you enough for including me in this list! I’ve followed your blog for quite a while, and always find it inspirational — thanks for all of your hard work providing great content, tips, strategies, etc., for all of us!

Interesting article. I tried blogging years ago. Unfortunately I ran out of inspiration and quit. There are so many interesting people out there blogging, funny people too. And for many of them it’s their hobby, not their regular job! Thanks for sharing, I’m gonna go check out some other blogs now =)

I entered the giveaway by joining Linkedin and signing up for the newsletter.
A few of my close blogging friends–whom I’ve also met offline–are on this is my mentor and also a few of my teachers. Which means I have amazing people guiding me! I recognize several names from blogs I frequent for personal insight and there are many new names for me to check out..Thank you!!

Wow, this is truly…an unexpected and wonderful honor, Kristi. I have looked up to you nearly from the moment I joined this space. To be mentioned on such a list, by you, is really pretty darned awesome 🙂

Thank you thank you thank you. I am awfully proud to be in this company!!

What a terrific post, thank you! I’m only up to the A’s so far and have already found masses of great content in their blogs, phew! If I can only get my workload under control I could post to my blog more often and one day make a list like this. Thank you for the resource 🙂

Please count me in for the DVD! I’ve shared this post via Twitter (@divinemscharity), Facebook (Charity Gamble), I’ve joined the LinkedIn group, and subscribed to the newsletter (same email as I used in the email field).

Bloggers I already knew and loved on this list were Ileane, Nile, Kimberly Castleberry, and Blazing Minds. 🙂 They are all just plain great bloggers with a lot to say and a lot of knowledge on their topics.

An awesome list there Kristi, and you’ve mentioned many female bloggers that I’ve been following for the past few months, like Denise, Gail of Growmap, Mavis, Ching Ya, Cori of BGB and Celestine (she really is a good writer). I’m surprised that you haven’t included yourself on this list of fearless female bloggers 🙂

You know what really blows my mind? How very hardworking, giving and detail oriented you are. Every post is carefully written and you put your heart and soul into it. That speaks volumes about you Kristi, as does the way you honour others.

So I want to honour your passion and commitment to blogging excellence. Truly, you’re one of a kind and everyone can see that. Thank you for including me in this list, it’s phenomenal to meet other women entrepreneurs rocking it out. Much love sister xo Tia

Wowza. I’m back again! I wanted to go through the list again and meet some more.

Sigh. Now if only I could figure out how to find some old lady bloggers like me, and I could feature the good ones amongst them. But I just can’t seem to locate them.

They HAVE to be out there! Don’t they?



P.S. Let me know if you kids know how I could search for them. I’ve tried a lotta phrases. No luck yet.

Hi Kristie,

I’m really proud to see Ileane (my Mom) and Kissie on this list. I’m learning so much from them. I’m going through the list looking for other fashion bloggers like myself to see if I can network with them.

Thanks for putting the spotlight on the ladies!

I forgot to mention… done all of the requirements. I would not mind being entered in the giveaway. I am not usually one to win any, but hey… worth a shot. 😀

Super!! I already know of Marjorie Clayman from her outstanding presence on Twitter. (She was mentioned in my most recent blog post for her Twitter community building at #tweetdiner.)

I’m bookmarking this page so I can explore the blogs of the others at my leisure and in depth! Looking forward to some excellent reading.

Wow what an awesome list of women. I am honored to be in such great company. I kinda like the title too “Fearless Female Bloggers” lolol I will have to mention it to my mother next time she says I take too many chances at pissing people off 😉 As a woman I have never known (accepted) the word can’t. As long as you believe in your heart you can that’s all that matters.

Grazie bella you are very gracious for putting this list out. I did want to mention Urban-SEO is my personal blog glad you dusted it off, reminds me I should be posting more often there than all the other places I write.

I’d like to simply RT, err…say “dittos” to Gabriella’s comment. I am honored, but I feel a little unworthy given the list of those who regularly pump out great content. And “grazie bella” for putting together this list.

I learned 1) about some women I have not “met” online, 2) about the Women in Blogging group on LinkedIn, 3) I was no longer following you on Twitter (how did that happen), 4) I need to get my blogging Mojo on a regular schedule, 5) about your rich website and content.

Thanks again!

This list is brilliant! I’ve been talking to my Girl Scouts about “Girltopia” a journey to create an ideal world for girls. This list goes a long way to show that there are a LOT of awesome women doing amazing work online. Thank you!

Giveaway: I had already joined the Linked In group, but I just subscribed to the newsletter (in addition to having this blog in my Google Reader.) I’ve also shared this post in Twitter & Facebook. And I’m looking forward to going through the list to add to the conversations on Twitter.

Thank you so much for including me on this impressive list of female bloggers. I took the time to click through to each one of them and was literally blown sideways by the variety, the humor, the information, the great twitter backgrounds and the resources. I’ve booked marketed everyone, am following everyone and am grateful to you for bringing so many smart new women to my attention.

Hi Kristi

I have not checked all their bio’s but is this a global list or are they all US based?

One person who is worth checking out is Sangeeta Haindl (based in the UK) who blogs on Social Media for Just Means.


I didn’t pay attention to where everyone was from, but I know there are bloggers from Singapore, the UK, and Australia, to name a few far and away places. I’m sure there are more represented, just can’t think of them off the top of my head. 🙂

You certainly have an awesome list, but I would like to nominate one person I feel is missing – Dr. Ellen Weber. She write a powerful blog, Brain Leaders and Learners and has a large following. She averages over 300 visitors daily on her blog and she participated in the Bloggers’ Hub at the World Business Forum in 2009. Though she may not participate in many of the arenas you mention, she has great expertise in her topic and has published many books with major publishers and articles in many magazines and journals.


I cannot imagine the time spent, how selfless of you!

Thank you, thank you for sharing this wonderful group of bloggers with us and I surely appreciate making an appearance as well. 😉

I’ve shared through Twitter and Facebook, I already subscribe, and I am definitely following this list. So please add me to the drawing! 😀

Finally, two female bloggers who comes to mind quickly:

Evelyn Parham ( Become A Healthier You
Denene Millner ( My Brown Baby

I have another good friend that I want to mention Melissa Hincha Ownby who I’ve known for almost 10 years. She has several blogs and she guest blogs for Mother Nature Network

Please post if you have additionals blogs.

My 2nd blog is which is my journey back to fitness after 2 kids (& the resources helping me) when I used to be a skinny multi-sport athlete. 🙂

Oh my goodness, that made me laugh. I just checked her blog out and read the line “my blood pressure danced the salsa.” That is so fitting of anyone who has found their website was down. Great suggestion! 🙂

Kristi, thank you for identifying me as one of your fearless (ha! if only you knew) bloggers. I am deeply honoured to be included with such accomplished women and to be part of a piece which clearly took a great deal of effort to compile. Many thanks for going to the trouble.

For fun I blogged about how I discovered I was on the list

A couple of ladies worth following:

April Dunford, Excellent insight – focus is product marketing, but relevance is much broader.

Nicole McKinney, Consistent, passionate blogging about business and social media.

Thanks again!

P.S. Please enter me in the contest if not too much trouble.

WoW Kristi.

You have captured some great gals here. This for sure show some fearless determination from you. We all can learn from your example.

Have to add a couple of great bloggers from your list to my own.

I really love how you support your fellow fearless female bloggers. Shoot we guys has something to learn from you gals here.

Great job Kristi 🙂

Cheers.. Are

Great list Kristi. I absolutely love that you didn’t stop with the well-known faces. You brought my attention to so many female bloggers whose talent I hadn’t known about until now. And of course…I’m truly thankful that you included me. You rock!

Kristi, I’m truly honored by your kind mention here. You’ve clearly put a considerable amount of effort in researching this wonderful group!! I made sure I’m following all now. [I don’t often consider myself a blogger as I think it’s supposed to look a ‘certain way’ – you know, three times a week minimum. Lol!! 🙂 That’s all about to change, though! ;0]


A list of 125 – that is an impressive feat. We try to do various top 10 lists and by number 5 we are running out of ideas 🙂 Seriously, this is a great list – I have bookmarked it and it makes a great reference. Thanks!

I’m honored to be part of this amazing group of women bloggers. Thank you so much. This must have taken so much work on your part. I just followed your Twitter List and will go through it to connect with the women I’m not already following.

As for suggestions – Cindi Matthews @Moomettes Her blog is

Kelli Miller @momof3boys3702 Her blog –

Cat Davis @3kidsandus Her blog –

Thank you Kristi and an honor to be enlisted with these wonderful, talented women. 🙂 It’s nice to see that lady bloggers are acknowledged. Found some new blogs / Twitter accounts to follow too, thanks to you! You should have included yourself in the list too, I’m sure nobody would object that. You are well deserved to be mentioned too.

Social/Blogging Tracker

Kristi – This list is definitely an eye opener that there are some great women out there in the blogging world. I am sure this list took you a good while to put together and it definitely shows you put time in because I check out some of the people on this list and there blogs, and in the information they provide are really impressive.

I also took a look at the DVD called Women in Business 2.0. and that also looks great. Anyway, great list and I will try to check out the rest of these lovely ladies in this list.

Wow! I have known that women know what to do and are success in online business but this list is huge – thanks a lot. I gonna visit all their sites and become one of them!

What a wonderful bunch of women! I am a PR student who will be graduating in the Spring. I had to keep a blog for PR Writing this semester and have had trouble getting the hang out it. I took the time to read the bio’s of several of these women who are leaving their footprint in the virtual world… and am extremely impressed! Keep up the good work and thank you again!

Holy cow! This is what I call a massive list of explosive women bloggers! You have really kicked the blogging game up a notch here Kristi and now I’m smiling wide. 😀

Really glad to see a lot of familiar faces as well as amazing professionals I haven’t gotten the chance to connect with. This list will come in handy to learn more about my neighbors and help me to expand my network experience. Thank you!

But mostly, thanks a bunch for putting together this awesome post. More folks are now aware of how powerful blogging is, that it’s not only for personal means anymore but a way to professional develop and build your presence online.

The proof is here among these great ladies. I look forward to learning from them all. And all I did to start was reach out, connect and blog about it! 🙂

OK, so what am I going to do to earn some points for this giveaway?

1 – Tweet and Follow the list
2 – Share on FB
3 – Join the LinkedIn group
4 – Will mention this post in upcoming Month in Review article, yay!
5 – Share it on other social network streams, if not vote if already on Blog Engage, BloggerLuv, BlogKube, StumbleUpon, Digg and so on

Really appreciate you for making my day awesome. Beats the flurries outside at the moment. 😉

Talk soon Kristi,


Plenty of inspiring ladies across many diverse fields on this list! It’s always great to see anyone, male or female, sharing quality content, entertainment and value, and the ones I’ve checked so far from this list do exactly that.

Thanks for putting this resource together,


Hi Kristie:

How is it that you did not include your name on the list? Being quite humble, I would take it. You have now developed a fabulous list that every new and not so famous female blogger would have to strive to get into and set that as their goal. There is such a variety out there, it is quite interesting. Thank you.

Kristi – I see lots of women bloggers here I’ve been either following for a while or have come across (happily!) in the blogsphere. But I must admit that Fiona Bosticky and Denise Wakeman are two of my all time favorite bloggers – they rock!

I’ve entered your generous giveaway, too, and thanks! I’ve shared this post on Twitter and Facebook and joined the LinkedIn group. Best of luck to all the participants.

P.S. and Oops. I also subscribed to your newsletter, Kristi, and forgot to mention that in my previous comment. BTW – your newsletter will probably be one of the few emails I’ll actually look forward to opening. Is it just me? Or is everyone getting tons and tons of frivolous junk in their inbox these days? It’s almost impossible to keep up with. 🙁 That’s why I rarely subscribe to anything anymore.

Great list – some I knew, some I didn’t. Have shared and will be back for more!

I too am pretty fed up and the gender bias in these list – would be nice to see some great women making it onto mixed lists without having to do a female only.



What a great introduction to these fearless female bloggers. Look like I’ll have to come back to your post a few time this weekend to keep up with all these amazing female bloggers in your list. Thanks for sharing!


This is an amazing list of talented women, thank you for sharing.

I have personally worked in groups in Ana Hoffman and Mavis Nong. So it does not surprise me that they are on your list. They provide valuable content and I learn something EVERY TIME I visit their blog.

I hope to see two other bloggers, Heather Stephens and Susanna Hess added to your list in the future. They are involved in the same group with myself, Ana and Mavis.

They all make me a better blogger!

Thanks for sharing this Mavis!

Tommy D.

Hi Kristi!

I’m truly amazed by the list you’ve put together and I am so excited about your contest. I’ve joined the linked-in group, joined your list, tweeted, shared and liked your post on facebook and I’m blogging about it as well as sending it out to my email list! I will also be following every one of these amazing gals!

You absolutely inspired me with this list! Thanks to Mavis Nong and Ana Hoffman who let me know about it. I’m looking forward to your fetching Friday post!


Kristi, Thanks for taking the time to put this list together. I definitely want to visit all of the ones that I have not seen before. The ones that I am familiar with are excellent ones. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog as well, I really do appreciate it!

I love the giveaway that you have set up! The DVD sounds great! I have joined the LinkedIn group, signed up for your newsletter, tweeted, and shared on FB. I am also following the list on twitter.

Oh my gosh – how fun to see this list and see several blogs that I read and others that I am friends with on Twitter.

I signed up for your newsletter, joined the LI group AND shared on Twitter.

Also, for your reading pleasure and because I think she’s also one to watch and is beyond fearless is @RedheadWriting (

I can’t imagine how long this amazing list has taken you to put together so big congratulations on celebrating the many wonderful women bloggers out there.

So happy to see many friends and women I admire on this list and there’s even more – can’t wait to see a series on this like I do with top women in business to follow on Twitter.

Glad to have connected with you here too Kristi and looking forward to joining the LinkedIn Group


Hi Kristi,

thanks for putting this list together, awesome. I am particularly happy to find Ana Hoffman and Mavis Nong on your list, two good friends I work closely together with on a regular basis.

Your list will keep me busy for a while, some of the other bloggers I know as well, for example Kimberly Castleberry and Shama Kabani.

Take care


Thanks Kristi for taking the time to put together this awesome list of women. I have connected with a couple of these ladies but now I will enjoy meeting some others on this list. I would like to say – it sure would be interesting to see the demographic statistics. In other words, how many of these women are from certain areas of the U.S. or other countries. Maybe that would make for another good post?!

Definitely a good point. I know there are probably a lot from the US, but also some from the UK, Singapore, Australia, India, and other various parts of the world. I thought about including it, but I couldn’t find information on where some people were located, so I just left it off. I’m sure that there are bloggers all over the world though, and depending where you are located, you will find some more easily than others. 🙂

I’m a first time reader of your blog and really appreciated your list! I blog in the world of nonprofits, specifically social media and multi-generational topics with a little bit of board governance mixed in. I would DEFINITELY add Rosetta Thurman and Trista Harris to your list. You’ve inspired me to start a list of my own and share some of my favorite female bloggers from the nonprofit world. Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, I love the list!

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing several of these extraordinary bloggers for a little while now, but most of them I wasn’t aware of. In looking through the list, there are some I’m looking forward to checking out further.

Thank you for putting this together. It’s truly a great list!


Kristi you put in a great deal of time putting together this phenomenal list. I love to see great women being recognized. I’ve got a lot of new leaders to add to my twitter list. What was your criteria for making the cut? Is this a list that you’ll be putting together every year? Thank you so much for exposing me to a new group of fearless women.


Hello Kristi,
Congratulations on your great article on these very creative women. As a blogger yourself, you are adding to the collective innovative voice. It takes daring creative skills to connect, interact, link, comment, communicate. You and each of these bloggers and commentors are somehow offering your skills to empower others. This ends in making the whole world a huge Chat Room, which is indeed a great purpose when we look at things with a little perspective, it is certainly a new necessary stage in our society and world development.
Warmest regards,

Wow, Kristi,

241 comments on this post already and 23 trackbacks! I keep coming back to it because there are so many bloggers on it that I don’t already know. Thanks for including me and I’m off to meet more of the women you’ve included here.

Hi Kristi,
I know one of your honorees, Margie Clayman as a friend and mentor. Being familiar with her work I know she gives back so much to so many. She is always willing to assist anyone that seeks her advice that wants to learn about blogging and social media. I am familiar with many of the names that have made your list and now I feel I have a treasure trove to explore and learn from.

Kristi girl, you have just made my day! I appreciate the honor to be amongst such great women and know I will be developing great new connections just from this list alone!

It’s going to take me some time to really delve in and get to know everybody as I’d like to not just follow them but also check out their websites, connect with them personally, and learn more about their passions. So much to do, so little time! Now I have to make sure I maintain my new status 😉

Make it a great day and talk to you soon!

Hi Kristi,
I am a man who read and follows many blogs around the world, and for some reason I read mostly female bloggers, women writing a little deeper and better articles. My personnel favorite is Kim Woodbridge who also is on your list.

I’ve been an avid reader of some of these female blogs for my own knowledge and out of interest. My favorite is Erica Douglass her entrepreneurial story is very inspiring.

Kristi, thanks for sharing with us the names and the blogs of the most awesome female bloggers out there. For sure, the count of “125” will surely multiply as time passes by.

Wow Kristi!
I know I’m late for the party but I am truly honoured! To be included in a list like this… with all these powerful women online and offline, it’s amazing. Thanks so much for that and believe it or not, this just pushes me to keep doing more…

Well done to everyone else on the list too! Women Rock!!

Hi Kristi,

What a great list this is!

Can it be added to, and if so can I nominate Nikki Katz?

She’s the Managing Editor for, has been a freelance
writer and blogger for over a decade, writing for, iVillage
and b5media. Her Twitter accounts are: @nikki_blogworld and @katzni.

Here’s some background on how Nikki came to be Managing Editor of

Here’s a link to her posts:

Here’s Nikki’s personal blog:

I know I’m biased, but she wows me, and I rally for people who wow me,
what can I say! 🙂

Best to you and yours on the holidays,

Dave Cynkin
Co-Founder, Sleep Deprivationist & Thrill Seeker
BlogWorld & New Media Expo

Thanks for the comment and nomination Dave! I’m sorry I missed her in this list!

Just as an update for you and everyone, I’ve received so many amazing nominations that I will be compiling another post of all the recommended bloggers here in the comments. Unfortunately, it does take a bit of time to do, so it probably won’t happen until the new year. But it’s coming! 🙂

What a great list – I have to say that 85% of the bloggers I have never even heard of. I know have a nice long list to start reading and learning from in 2011! Perhaps by 2012 I’ll make it to one of your faved lists!

I keep returning to this list because there’s no way I can absorb all the information about 125 people in one sitting. I think I’m going to have to make this a weekly thing. Actually, maybe I’ll visit this post twice a week, learning all I can about one or two women each visit. By the time next year’s list rolls around, I’ll have managed to become fully informed about each woman on the list. I’m honored to be amongst such fearless folk! 🙂

I am honored to be included on your list!

It’s been way too long since we’ve connected. So many changes have occurred in my life in the past year. And yet …I continue to blog!

Did I say I love blogging? It’s evolved for me and I’ve made so many lifelong friends through blogging. I can’t believe I only found this list today. But better late than never, right?

Thank you Kristi,
Debbie Petras

Hey Kristi

Wow, what a long list and that should give me some great additions to my RSS reader. Thanks.

One that you missed – and that will confuse your list – are the famous twins at, Janice Croze and Susan Carraretto.

They have been blogging since 2006 and 5MinutesForMom was quoted as 2nd top parenting blog in the Wall Street Journal and constantly ranks around the top at Technorati.

They also run five sister blogs such as and and, as if that isn’t enough for no sleep, they run two ecommerce toy stores.

The twins pioneered the concept of giveaways, carnivals and Twitter parties in their niche and are the inspiration for untold numbers of mom bloggers.

Notable events they run or are involved with are the Ultimate Blog Party, Disney Social Moms and Blissdom Canada.

Oh, and they look kinda cute, lol!

ps: no, they didn’t pay me to write that!!!
pps: you have fabulous blog content, btw. I’ll be back often

I couldn’t find myself, so here it is, #126:
I’m a speech therapist and Kindermusik educator and on my blog I like to talk about language development, child development, music benefits, bilingualism and more!
Seriously, I follow some of these women and they are amazing!

Wow, I love this list very much! Thank You for all the hard work that you give to make this list and i am proud of these type of ladies who have the guts to speak as some does not have no matter even if they are man or women!!!
