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.
