100 Female Bloggers To Follow

100 Women Bloggers to Follow

2016 marks the return of the 100 female bloggers to follow list. These smart women are active bloggers, say interesting things and talk about things that help women in business.

Now, the boring admin part… This list is in no particular order. I know, I should have some kind of ranking system, but to be honest, women are ranked every day on how they look, how much they weigh etc. This list is just a list of 100 smart women you should follow. Number 97 is just as interesting as number 5.

How do I come up with the smart, amazing women bloggers here? I ask the community to suggest women bloggers, I ask the current, active Birds contributors, and I add the people I notice.

There are no Birds on the Blog contributors, past or present on this list. We believe in giving women a hand up, and this is our opportunity to recognise those outside of our immediate community.

Skim through the list, click on the ones you like the sound of and then subscribe. When you’ve done that, leave a comment with a link to the female bloggers who are not on the list, that should be. Let’s make this an amazing resource for women everywhere.
