The Fourth Annual, 50 Best Blogs by Women – 2012

Best Blogs by WomenBy Holly Reisem Hanna

It’s that time of year again!

For the past four years, I’ve compiled a list of what I think are the 50 Best Blogs by Women. If you can believe this, it actually takes me a full year to put this list 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 working with, some I’ve found from comments left on last year’s best-of-post, a couple were featured on the news – but this year, I found the majority of these blogs on Pinterest!

What I find so amazing about blogging, is that there are so many fabulous women, in a ton of different niches, that are creating their own destinies and business opportunities – and that is powerful stuff!

To show my support and recognition for all of these amazing women who are creating their own path in the world, I give to you, the Fourth Annual Best Blogs by Women.

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.

    Holly – what an amazing group of women, though i must admit, I think that humor category is by far the best. Where did you find me, I mean, her? Yes, her, who’s most certainly not me, she’s hilarious!

    Thanks – great list!
