5 Top Influential Women Bloggers: Part I

There are a lot of women bloggers around the world wide web, but some women bloggers rule the blogosphere by their views and writing, influencing the blogosphere at large. On International Women’s Day, I salute these 5 women bloggers who inspired me when this blog started a few years back.

Here they are (in no particular order)…

Gina TrapaniGina Trapani
She is the founding editor of Lifehacker, which was one of the first blogs I started reading since its early days, and Gina has pushed LH to be one of the most popular blogs ever. It has a daily dose of everything from life hacks to your geeky adventures. Send her a tip, and wait for the news to circulate…

Lorelle WordPress Lorelle vanFossen
When I switched from blogger to WordPress, one blog consistently guided me through my newbie WordPress steps. Meet Lorelle on WordPress, queen of WordPress, whose useful tips and tricks on everything WordPress will help you become a better WordPress blogger. Also blogging on BlogHerald.

Jensense Jennifer Slegg
She blogs infrequently, but when she does, it is the most authoritative analysis of contextual text advertising on the web anywhere. Wait for Google AdSense or Yahoo Publisher Network to modify a policy… and await the JenSense take on the issue. I have never been disappointed and learned a lot about the finer clauses.

Liz StraussLiz Strauss
She is successfully blogging on the Successful blog and recognizing SOBs (Successful and Outstanding Bloggers). Possibly the most influential relational blogger, by recognizing good content, she has a fan following of SOB’s. When this blog was taking its early stumbling steps, she inspired me to be worthy of the SOB award.
