The Third Annual 50 Best Blogs by Women – 2011

By Holly Reisem Hanna

For the past two years I’ve compiled a list of what I think are the 50 Best Blogs by Women. If you can believe it, it actually takes me a full year to put these lists together.

Each and every day I’m on the lookout for great new resources and fresh new voices. Some of these women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person at the Blissdom Conference; others are part of the Austin Bloggers Social that I belong to and yet other I’ve found on Twitter or Facebook.

The point is… there are so many fabulous women out there creating their own career path and/or business for themselves either by blogging or through blogging – and that is very powerful!

To show my support and recognition for all of these amazing women who are creating their own destiny in the world, I present to you, The Third Annual 50 Best Blogs by Women.

And if you happen to be one of the 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.
