Women Bloggers to Watch in 2008!

"We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared."
Mary Kay Ash

Women are blogging in record numbers these days - so may blogs, so much content and so little time to check them all out. Each month during 2008, I will be highlighting dozens of blogs written by women, on a variety of topics, genres and locations around the globe. These women share one thing in common. They have a goal, a theme and a purpose in their lives. Please do stop by their blogs, check them out, leave a comment and see how many great relationships you can develop online in the next 12 months.

Here are the Virtual Woman's Day 25 Women Bloggers to Watch in 2008 for January:

Look for our next 25 in February - the Baby Boomer Bloggers....
Until then, let your fingers do the walking ....

Heidi, how exciting to find my name and blog, Home Biz Notes, mentioned on your list of Women Bloggers to Watch in 2008! I'm pleased that Yvonne Russell (my co-blogger) and I can bring information and resources of value to home business owners and those thinking about starting home businesses. Let us know if there is information that would be particularly helpful.

Heidi, I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to see that you listed my blog on your list of Women to Watch in 2008!

This may in fact be one of the most exciting things that have happened to me since I started my home business.

I never knew that I would love this type of work as much as I do and now to be recognized for it is such a great feeling!

Thank you so much,

Laura Licata

I'm surprised and honored to have my site listed and linked on your list of Women Bloggers to Watch in 2008! Thanks, Heidi!

I can't wait to share my thoughts, experience and ideas with other women bloggers. Working on identifying the right product / service to sell online, as well as learning to utilize the right online marketing strategy has been exciting for me.

I look forward to building more online relationships, especially with other women with the same interests.

Cheers, Samantha Tang

Magic In Words said...

I'll echo what we are all saying, thank you for featuring my blog, Magic In Blogging, and me as one of the Women Bloggers to Watch in 2008.

I've spent a lot of time over the past few years heralding blogs and their value to solopreneurs. I love that there are so many women paving the way.

Kudos to all of my fellow female bloggers for bearing the torch!

Heidi, I am both honored and flattered to be named to your list. While I already know and admire several from your list, I do see a few names I don't recognize and will surely enjoy getting to know them.

Thanks so much!

Oh, I have been reading MomGadget for such a long time and I love Gayla's blog!

You may want to consider Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist, Julie Pippert's Using My Words, Katherine Stone's Postpartum Progress, Carol Bradley Bursack's Minding Our Elders and Erin Kotecki Vest always give you something to consider and discuss at Queen of Spain.

All are OUTSTANDING writers who provide consistant quality content.

Thanks so much for mentioning my blog as "one to watch". And I love the idea of learning about other "women to watch" throughout the year. So powerful. Makes the gears start running in my head how I can start a similar empowerment campaign on my own blog (and in my industry). Kudos on a great idea, and thanks again for including my blog in it.

Marijke Durning said...

What a great list of blogs. I have more reading to do!

The Home Pro said...

Thank you for posting these blogs. I know Laura (#5) and she really is one to keep your eye on.

Great information and I have added even more to my list of blogs to check out.

Kim Guymon said...

Great list! I think women bloggers are often overlooked. We tend to be thought of as just blogging about our families, but there is some serious great blogging going on out there by women!

Andamom said...

What a wonderful way to ring in the New Year -- I was quite tickled to be listed with such talented and wonderful women bloggers. Once things calm down, I'll definitely take a look at the other blogs listed here and come back to visit your blog as well.

Thanks ever so much... Jules @ Andamom
