96 Women Bloggers to Watch for Spring 2008

I love lists... making them, reading them and finding them. And I love reading great articles that can help in with an area of my life I am interested in improving. Blogging is one of them. I read at least two articles every day about blogging and I check out at least a dozen new bloggers a week. So I have mentioned several great women bloggers I have come across since our last list of women bloggers to watch came out and also want to share five articles I found particularly informative.

I got a lot of information from an article written by Lisa Druxman of Entrepreneur.com. She Says, “Whether you start your own or visit someone else's, blogs can help you build the relationships your business needs.” Hurry over to Lisa’s article, “Real Moms do blog” - it is filled with great tips and motivation about why you should start blogging.

Tali presents How Do Small Blogs Make It Big? - The Story of Search for Blogging posted at The Marketer Review, saying, “How do you grow your small blog? A case study.”

The 3 Reasons People Visit Your Blog at Millionaire Secrets - The article suggests how Content, entertainment and people want to get to know you will get people to visit your blog and keep them coming back for more.

If you like adding photos to your blog read 15 Best Image Search Engines to Find Photos Online an excellent resource for finding great images online.

And finally, here's a very ecclectic group of talented women called "96 Women Bloggers to Watch this Spring" - be sure and check them out!

First of all, good list. Out of all the women bloggers in your list I read "Add Your Comment Here" with Kate. Very informative and entertaining at the same time...

IMR editor said...

Hi there, great list of people to watch. Please add my friend lynn miller's blog to your roll.
www.organicmedia.com is really on a green roll: getting lots of attention with her great smart writing and good ideas for moms and for you aussies and brits, mums.
I like it, and know her to be passionate about her campaign against cheap plastic junk, etc. I am not involved with it but think she is doing a great job. Julie, www.eimr.blogspot.com

B. Wright said...

A wonderful list. Keep up this great work. I'll be checking in often...

Lynn from organicmania.com said...

I'm thrilled that Julie Power, Editor of the Internet Marketing Report, proposed adding me to your list of 96 women bloggers to watch.

Unfortunately, there was a typo in my url...it's http://www.organicmania.com

The site is designed to help make sense of healthy green living. Would love to have you come check it out! It was built out of my frustration with trying to make sense of my organic and green purchases.

Thanks! -- Lynn

IMR editor said...

correction.

oops. So i raved about Lynn Miller's blog www.organicmania.com but put the wrong url in last comment. This is correct one.

Laurie Ayers said...
