Seven Blogs You Should Be Following

Seven Blogs You Should Follow 150x150I am sharing with you a list of Seven Blogs You Should Be Following if you are serious about growing your business. If you want to be recognized as a leader in your industry, you need to position yourself as someone who knows where the market is and where the market is going. You also have to provide content that is interesting, informing and engaging.

Blog readers have many choices available and they will quickly move on from a blog with irrelevant and outdated content!

One of the best ways to provide your readers with interesting, informing and engaging content is by following industry trends and keeping abreast of what others in your industry are talking about. The easiest way to learn what is happening in your industry is by following other blogs.  


In this blog post I share with you Seven Blogs You Should Be Following!  


Copyblogger - When I started my first blog I was all over the place with my content. From Copyblogger I have learned, how to not only, create killer blog content but to create content that is focused for my audience. Copyblogger has tons of FREE training on content marketing, which hands down makes this a blog you should follow.         

Dani Johnson - There was once a time when I couldn’t focus on my business and was tied to a job because I was drowning in debt. When I started following Dani Johnson’s blog, I learned the value of eliminating debt, cutting out unnecessary spending and making my money work for me!

In less than three months, I paid off more than $3,000 worth of debt after reading her book “First Steps to Wealth.” Dani also shares FREE training on her blog that will help you improve and advance in every area of your life. 

Leaving Work Behind - This blog isn’t as well-known as the other six blogs on my list but deserves to be talked about. The Internet offers everyone the chance to earn income outside of a 9 to 5 job.

On his blog “Leaving Work Behind” Tom Ewer chronicles step by step how he left his full-time job and not only replaced but exceeded his income all working from home. His blog serves not only as an inspiration but as a practical guide on how to build the life of your dreams.    

Melinda Emerson - If working from home isn’t for you but you want to venture into the world of small business then you must follow Melinda Emerson’s Blog. Not only will she teach you how to run a profitable small business but with her highly acclaimed book she will teach you how to “Become Your Own Boss In 12 Months.”   

ProBlogger - If you want to blog like the pro’s then you should be following ProBlogger. ProBlogger covers everything from SEO, themes, writing, marketing and much more. 

Ray Higdon – Ray Higdon is truly living the American Dream. He went from being in foreclosure to earning millions and helping others learn how to achieve success in Network Marketing. What I love about Ray is that he doesn’t give you hype! You won’t be told to sit back and be online everyday. He will show you how to build a profitable business both online and offline. 

Sandi Krakowski - Sandi has helped thousands of people build multi-million dollar businesses from home. Not only will Sandi teach you how to grow your business but she will motivate and encourage you to be the best person God created you to be.

There you have it, a list of Seven Blogs That You Should Be Following.

If none of these blogs fit your industry or niche, I encourage you to find ones that do and make a commitment to spend at least 30 minutes a day reading them. 

I would love to hear from you, please leave a comment and share some of the blogs that you follow and why. 

Your Success Partner,

    Best advice I have read about why to acknowledge the blogger whose post you find valuable.

    Hi, Yaisa!

    I began following Sandi Krakowski a few months back. I haven’t taken any of her courses, yet, but have really enjoyed learning from her blog posts and emails. Seeing her on your list encourages me to try some of the other suggestions you have. I am trying to make a go at the niche area of scrapbooking and cardmaking, but also dabble in affiliate marketing. These blogs above should be good resources for me. Thanks so much for the great content!

      I recently took one of Sandi’s courses and I learned so much. Next year I hope to join her coaching group.
