Top 5 Blogs to Follow

I started this blog a couple of years ago, and surprisingly, most of the blogs I've been following then are still on top.  The best way to get ideas for posts or how to develop your blog is to follow those on top.  I once heard somewhere that if you want to be rich, you need to study what wealthy folks do and apply it.  The same applies to blogging, where all of the successful ones started just like mine here, and perhaps just like the one(s) you're working on.  If you're out of ideas to write about already, still finding your niche, or just want to see where you could be in a few years, I highly recommend you subscribe to the following blogs:

1.) ProBlogger - This is a VERY successful site that originally started as a blog about blogging, SEO, and many other things related to web presence.  This is the very first place a new blogger should look when getting started.

2.) For Bloggers by Bloggers - This is a site/blog that brings great advice for bloggers as well as many fun reads.  My favorite post by them was 7 Pieces of Blogging Advice That Bloggers Should Ditch Right Now which takes an opposing stance on most of the blog tips you see on the web nowadays, and their points actually make sense!

3.) FailBlog - If you haven't heard of it yet, and are looking to do a blog or site mainly comprised of images, this is a great example of how it should look.  The content flows well and they have found a target niche that works.  It is also very easy to read and navigate, both key in an media-oriented blog.

4.) StrayBlogger - I found some of the most useful content on this site, and this would be especially helpful for someone who already knows their niche but wants to get hoards of traffic and possibly monetize their blog in the future.

5.) BitDoze - The blogging section at has some great information on producing traffic through link exchanges, case studies, and every other tool you could think of that isn't covered in the above four sites.  This is the last place I would check in the blog development process, but is likely the most important.

If you like what you see on these sites and blogs, and are ready to get working on yours, I also have a post covering topics to write about and tips for getting the most out of your blog once it's going.  Also, always feel free to leave a comment or email me at
