Last year I compiled a list of the 50 best blogs by women, however over the past year I have met a ton of cool people on Twitter and I have stumbled across some truly amazing blogs. So I thought it would be fun to make this an annual affair. Just like last year I have decided not to feature any of the power bloggers like Heather Armstrong and Ree Drummond (even though they totally rock), but these blogs below have been my go-to resources for awesome information, a bit of humor and some fantastic recreational reading.
I think you’re really going to like these – enjoy!
And if you happen to be one of our top 50 bloggers, congratulations! (You can download our new logo by right clicking and saving to your computer) or feel free to email me at holly (at) theworkathomewoman (dot) com and I’ll send you the logo.
