101 Women Bloggers to Watch in 2010

WOW! It’s hard to believe it’s 2010! And I am so excited because I am sure this is going to be the year of the Social Media Entrepreneur.  Participating in and leading Social Media has become a way of life for people personally and professionally.

Along with Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and many other niche social networking sites, blogs are mainstream now – books are being written by, for and about bloggers. Movies are made showcasing bloggers’ stories and bloggers are headlining news stories every day.

It is an honor for me to share our annual list of 101 Inspiring Women Bloggers to Watch with the readers of WE Magazine for Women.

I want to thank all our readers for all your Women Bloggers recommendations. WE had hundreds of entries. And because there were so many, this list is by no means complete. Consider this the first round of women bloggers to watch for 2010.  In fact, we will be creating several lists of women bloggers to watch this year. There are just too many good bloggers to showcase!  Of course, feel free to share your favorite female bloggers in the comments section below. 
By the way, if you are a woman blogger who has been blogging for at least six months, feel free to share your blog. Please leave your blog title, the url and a one sentence description in the comments section. I personally review EVERY Blog that is on this list before listing it, and would love to do the same for your woman edited, published, or owned blog.

And if you happen to be one of our bloggers to watch, CONGRATULATIONS! (You can download our new logo by right clicking and saving to your computer) or email me at heidi (at) we magazine for women dot com (no spaces) with “Send me the Women Blogger Logo” in the subject line.

  16. So sneaky to publish an article like this…extremely good way to get traffic linked back to you, by all these 101 people who are excited to be mentioned. A Top 10 would’ve been a little more believable.

  17. Heidi Richards says:

    Hey, thanks for the complement! And this is actually our 4th list, so its not really sneaky. If WE can turn our readers on to great new bloggers AND make 101 women happy, in my book thats much better than just 10.

    Iris and Lynn,

    Our pleasure really! Being married to a chef, I have had the good fortune of NEVER eating a frozen pizza and since I started working from home about a year ago, have also learned how to cook a few dishes. Don’t want to do it every day mind you, but it is fun to find new and interesting (and tasty) recipes and whip something up to surprise him!

    Thanks for the great blog… keep on cooking!


  20. Heidi Richards says:


    Glad you made the list! You are one of my FAVES! Whoohoo!

  23. Thank you so much for including me on this list!

    And, to back up why you did it – it’s really pretty funny what you wrote, because I was ran for and was elected to office in November, my first time ever running for anything, and I’ve started a blog about my city and my experience on city council called “In The Arena”:

    Apparently extremely few female political bloggers have run for and been elected to office (so far I’m the only one we’ve been able to track down but I can’t believe that!), so I’m very excited to blog about the in the arena experience now! I will be keeping up Writes Like She Talks as well though.

    Thanks again. :)

  40. Hello. Great spot! I’d like to toss my blog into your proverbial best of women bloggers hat! The name of my blog is “Diary of a Writer in Mid-Life Crisis”. I’ve been writing it for about three years now and it’s about how to deal with the issues that plague women at mid-life (i.e., slowing metabolism, stepchildren, hair in the most unusual places, etc.) with a smile and a little bit of denial. :)

    I update approximately once or twice a week (I’m due for a post, in fact, today or this weekend…). You can read it at Thank you so much for your consideration. And no matter what you choose to do, I’d love to know what you think of it!

    Thank you for sharing your insight into turning passion into prosperity. I so agree with you. It is only through self-discovery that we can find our real talents, hopes and wishes. And through passion and commitment we work through our “issues” and come out a more holistic person.

    Hope you are having an exceptional year filled with prosperity, abundance and good health.

    101 Women Bloggers to Watch and no mention of Pamela Geller of

    No one, female or male, surpasses Pamela Geller in original reporting, incisive and insightful commentary, and courageous advocacy for the rights of the despised and forgotten — such as the victims of Islamic honor killing and the traditional Islamic death penalty for those who leave Islam. Pamela Geller originated and led the effort to memorialize Aqsa Parvez, who was murdered by her father for refusing to wear the Islamic headscarf, and has been a tireless advocate for Rifqa Bary, the girl whose father threatened to kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity.

    Pamela Geller is, in short, one of the leading genuine advocates for women’s rights — women who are really threatened in concrete circumstances today — and your omission of any mention of her casts a huge shadow on your entire list.

  122. Dear Heidi,

    What a great list of blogs to check out! I have been blogging since 2004 and am a professional artist living and working in the burbs of DC. I started out with many others on the AOL journal platform, and when AOL placed ads on paid members “journals” overnight I moved with about 150 other writers to Blogger.

    There is a wide-ranging network of artist bloggers (painters, authors, book binders, glass artists, photographers, ceramicists, and the list goes on) many of whom are women, and we write about our lives and inspirations and daily process. It is enlightening to have that window into an artist’s life and makes the art created all the more interesting.

    I have found that my blog is at least as effective as my website is in driving traffic toward my work, and I have made so many business contacts through my daily process writing. There is no ignoring social media now, it is only a matter of choosing how and where to join in.

    Bloggers who make the list are those that let us know they exist.

    We find them a number of ways, via google alerts, from other bloggers, from blogrolls of blogs we frequent and more.

    The blog must have a clear purpose and the blog owner must be a woman. There must also be a section with either the “about us” or history of the blog and a way to contact the blog owner if we have any questions. If not, we don’t include the blog in our list. The blog also must be online a minimum of 6 months to make the list although we generally chose those who have been around a year or longer.

    We try to be diverse with each list so we don’t fill it with a lot of blogs of the same topic or area of expertise.

    My goal is to inspire women to not only find inner peace, but to see that every challenge is an opportunity to finding real strength – one that is based on a strong heart.

    Single moms are closest to my heart because I have been one for 15 years, and my greatest joy has been raising my son( he is now 17)

    I also experience a major life changing even 7 years ago where I almost died in a car accident, so the past 7 years have been a catharsis for me to find my passion which is writing. That is why I love blogging:)

    Hi Hedi, I really enjoyed your list! As a wannabe blogger I’ve been looking for some ideas to get me started. I’ve checked out a few blogs and can’t wait to look at some more.

    During my research I came across an interesting blog recently called Girls Gone Reading

    According to the site, “It is a page for all women who love to read and want to share thoughts and opinions regardless of geographic location.” It’s a blog about books and provides a way for people to set up a book club of their own.

    I’ve been thinking of doing something similar geared more too men, but check it out if you get a chance.

  192. Though I have been named as a ‘Woman to Watch’ Blogger on the Website posted .. this blog has not been updated recently. I’ve determined to ramp up my postings. I hope you will come by for a visit and join me in a quest to take responsibility for personal health choices.

    Examine Your Sweeteners: The title of my latest Article. Most everyone has a sweet tooth .. This is written to help people make responsible choices for the type of sweeteners consumed.

  193. Hi, I wanted to share our blog Week X Week. Read Week X Week for commentary and analysis by Peace X Peace writers who bring their personal and informed perspectives to current events effecting women and peace.

  194. Hi
    I have just (today) discovered you!
    This list is a fabulous idea and I would like to present you with my three blogs.
    I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and type 2 diabetes in July of 2007 and I have always had health issues and allergies, so I have started these blogs to help others in the same sorts of situations. (Deals with all things gluten free) (Talks about allergies, diabetes, and general health) and my newest baby
    which looks at the ties between Celiac and other diseases/afflictions/disorders/syndromes.
    Thank you,
    Aunt Jayne

    My blog is Linda B’s Blog and it’s about my OOAK handbeaded jewelry designs and accesories. I design Judaica jewelry and women’s wire beaded kippot and items for holidays, too.

    I’ve been blogging for about 4 years and I love featuring other shops too.

  209. Led here by A.E. Brains blog. Nice list of blogs here!! We women can sure pour out our words that mean so very much….especially when read and really taken in; by women.

    I write a blog called: Shauna’s Life In Pain And Other Fun Things
    over the past 2 1/2 years.

    Shauna’s blog writings focus on the subject of Chronic Pain. She is a nurse who has dedicated her life to those who are ready to leave this earth. Hospice Nursing is Shauna’s calling and both her mom and dad passed away on Hospice, with Shauna a Hospice nurse at the time of her father’s care, and the time spent nursing him to the very end is to Shauna,” The best gift he has ever given me.”

    Shauna’s blog is exceptional as the subject of Chronic Pain is written through two viewpoints: That of a nurse, and that of a patient. Having the ‘inside’ scoops on those things medical, has helped her tell the stories of her life in pain, while able to teach in each post. The focus of this blog is to let others see that they are NOT alone! Pain patients need to interact with other pain patients; as no one understands your pain, as another person with pain.

    Wanting to consistently give correct medical information, Shauna pulls from her extensive knowledge from both nursing and personal experience, giving ideas and tips such as Finding You Pain Doctor. The Top Ways To Help The Pain Patients In Your Life, Keeping a Pain Journal, and posts that go deep into all pathologies of the spine.

    I’d be honored to be included in the blogging list of Women Bloggers to watch in 2011. Gentle Hugs to all always—-<3

  215. David Walker says:

    Wow! What an awesome list of bloggers! As a keen blogger myself, I am looking forward to going through it and making some powerful new connections. Thanks again for taking the time to research and publish this list! David.

  216. This is an awesome list!

    One great find is Susan Flynn’s “You Can Never Have Too Many Books” blog. I’ve made a challenge like this myself but didn’t quite get as far as she did.

    Keep up the good work!


  217. Wow this is a great list…thanks!

    Contact me

  218. Great list indeed. If I may also add, there are 2 women bloggers that I find really great but somehow missing in this list – it’s Emily Chang (an award-winning web and interaction designer) as well as the women bloggers at

    In your list, I’m a big fan of the The Fast and The Fabulous for they have interesting perspectives in a male-driven and dominated industry. They are like a breath of fresh air in the same manner Danica Patrick is to the world of motorsports.


  219. Tracey Madsen says:

    I’ve checked out some of the blogs in this list and they’re worth my time. Thank you for posting. I particularly like Golf Chick with Kristen Williams and Cathy Burton Taylor’s Miss Chatter. Thanks for recognizing what these women are doing.

  220. That is one heck of a list! lol

    Certainly enough blogs there to keep one tied over for some serious amount of time – good work!

    Girl power indeed!

    Great to see that blogging is still fully alive and kicking.

  221. Hey, Great post. I love women and the Internet has opened a much greater opportunity for feminine expression and ideas to widespread. Here’s a cool post I found:

  222. Heidi Richards says:

    Leo, both of the women bloggers you mention have been in one of our lists… thanks for stopping by!


  223. @Roy – LOL who doesn’t love women! (sorry just couldn’t resist!)

    So would there be a 2011 list? I’d like to post a link to it on my motivational site, I think it’s inspiring for women!

  224. Thanks Heidi for updating me on this. Great to see so many women bloggers making a difference in different online communities :)

  225. Wonderful list!!!

    I am still receiving emails in regard to any comments on this list, and wanted to check back in with you to let you know I am still blogging away at: ‘Shauna’s Life in Pain”, it is 3 years this month!! How time does fly…

    I have enjoyed reading from the list and am looking forward to the next group of Women Bloggers to Watch!! There are so many excellent blogs!!

  226. Daniel Hansen says:

    Can never go wrong with the posts of Gail Metcalf…get on her list!

    Daniel Hansen

  227. What a wonderful list! Thank you for taking the time to put this excellent resource together for us. Now to start clicking and see which blogs I want to learn more about!

  228. “My name is Kimberly Ray,Author of the book AND YET, YOU STILL CHOSE ME, inspired by my true story of child abuse…

    Producer of upcoming film,Picture Me Blue No More based on my book, AND YET, YOU STILL CHOSE ME, Writer/Director/Producer of film is Perla Faye. Her production company is Onyx Pearl.”

    Kimberly…check out your blog…very inspiring! Wish you the best with the movie!


  229. This is really inspirational stuff, but there’s a real danger that reading so much good material will mean I have to ration myself. I’ve had a work from home business for a few years and I recently started blogging. I’m hoping that’s going to become a habit.

  230. Eric Pelzer says:

    Cool list! Until2010 is a very good blog I think. She writes a lot about politics and economics, which I like and enjoy reading about, so get on her list if you like that too!:)

  231. Thanks for the delightful post. What a wonderful assortment of blogs by women for women. So many of these look intriguing that I don’t know where to begin. This is definitely a keeper as I will refer to it often. Thanks again.

  232. Great list! Have you seen Mommy CEO, by Sabrina Parsons. She writes about life as a mom and CEO. If you like business, you’ll love it. If you happen to be a mom, so much the better (I’m not, obviously)
    You can see it here:

  233. I was glad to stumble upon your post. There are so many interesting blogs and what a treasure trove of information for woman. I will definitely bookmark this one.

  234. Go girl. Nice list!

    News on Women is a great one. :-)

  235. This is a great list and apart from being inspiring its also great to see “how its done”. The one blog from the list that I do know very well is “Success in Sweatpants” by Trish Lambert and its one of my favorite blogs that I read daily.

  236. Wayne C. Burkhart says:

  240. Balloons Childrens Clothes says:

    Great list. Thanks.

    I’ve been reading a number of these blogs and particularly like One Green Generation by Melinda Epler as it always seems to have straightforward simple tips and ideas that really work. Any chance of a follow up posting with more new blogs for 2011? (or even for 2012 as we’re half way through 2011 already!)

  241. gonna visit soon

  242. Sara Angel@ cheap granite countertops says:
