I work in blogging and I have two blogs. That said, my RSS feed is chalk full of wonderful, fabulous bloggers. I try to keep it pretty tight, as in, if I don’t read you regularly you’re out. Here are five bloggers that truly stand out – I gobble up their new posts with vigor. You will too.
1. Danielle LaPorte | White Hot Truth
Danielle is soulful, brilliant, and keeps it real. She lays it all out there and nicely ties in her business with her Firestarter Sessions into her writing. Straight up, she inspires, for a living. She definitively states: “I’m interested in liberating truth, raw reality, and grace.” Danielle encourages me. She makes me laughs. She has drawn me to tears numerous times with her alive writing and vision.
2. Erika Napoletano | Red Head Writing
Erika is powerful. She isn’t afraid to admit her mistakes and she doesn’t apologize for who she is. It’s refreshing. When someone is human, this is when we want to connect with them. She’s edgy and it’s why readers love what she’s going to dish out. I love The Bitch Slap whee she writes about something that needs a bitch slap, and eloquently slaps you with the why. I mean, her bitch slaps are delivered with serious hollaback. Can’t argue with that.
Three favorite posts: 19 things I wish I knew when I started my business. Access. The Bitch Slap: On Fear
3. Ashley Ambirge | The Middle Finger Project
“Rejecting the status quo and rebelling against mediocrity.” With a tagline like that, you’re either going to sink or you’re going to soar and Ashley is the latter. Last Summer Ashley stayed with me as she was road-tripping across the country with her Way Below Status Quo Crew. Ashley exudes confidence and fun that is contagious (in writing and in person). She’s unabashed about her business and is encouraging everyone to watch (and learn) from her journey to make $97,000 this year. Oh yes, did I mention she relocated on her own to South America to live, travel and work the life she loves? That’s right. Rebel of intelligent power.
4. Kelly Diels | Cleavage
“Sex, money and meaning. Writing through the lines that shape us.” Professionally, Kelly “seduces” with her words, which makes her blog intriguing to read as she twists, creates and builds…all with her words. I appreciate her candor and ability to share and process, with us, life’s mysteries, fears and joys. Her intelligence coupled with wit, makes me adore her even more.
5. DeaAnne White | Live the Charmed Life
DeeAnn is an American Expat living in Europe. As an Italian who loves the hedonist, indulgent lifestyle (yes, me) I love DeeAnn and her responsible yet deep, beautiful way of living and truly creating a lifestyle. She talks about being classy, a real woman, traveling, charm, and exploring yourself. Her posts give me wanderlust and miss my life in Europe, while also always leaving me with a bright smile. I have so much respect for her, especially since her story is so varied.
After all, she explains her writing and vision best: “It’s forgetting all that we’ve learned about having it all, doing it all, and being it all. It’s being discriminating about what we allow into our lives, and it’s courting serendipity whilst abandoning what silently steals our passion. It’s daring to explore a simpler, lovelier, more discerning lifestyle.”
