The 30 Best Business Blogs for Women

The majority of blogs on topics relating to business and entrepreneurship are written by men yet women are starting small businesses at twice the rate of our male counterparts.

  1. Sweet! You beat me to the punch…I was putting together my list of favorite ladies in marketing & business too. We share a few of the same picks (which means these ladies really know their business!) but I’ve also found a couple women here that I must add right away. Great job, Natalie!

    Thanks for including Market Like A Chick in this awesome list of talented women in business! 🙂

  2. Natalie, we’re delighted & honoured to be included in this list of stellar bloggers! Thanks so much for including us. Like Coree, I found some favourites of mine in the list as well as some new names I’m excited to discover.

  3. Thank you all for the comments. I also think lists like this are wonderful because they introduce you to new bloggers that you may not have known about before. All of you are such fabulous women!

  4. We are thrilled to be included among such a prestigious group of talented women entrepreneurial bloggers! Thank you ever so much.

    I am sure the list will continue to grow each year to ensure no gifted woman blogger is ever left out.

  5. Thank you all! The response has been incredible on this post.

    @Carma: I’m not sure how many blogs each woman has but I imagine some have more than one. I know Susan Gunelius writes for several sites and blogs and will be writing the upcoming Blogging for Dummies book.

    To everyone who has asked about growing this list, I would love to see this list grow for next year and make it an annual thing. Also, last year the She Takes On The World Women of the Year awards were a great success and that will be happening again in December.

    Thanks for the support, comments, and tweets 🙂

  6. Fantastic list – this will be a great resource in the future!

    I would also like to suggest – edited by Jill Foster, which has daily articles written by over a dozen women entrepreneurs. It brings together many different voices from various types of businesses. Lots of great stuff in there!

    (for full disclosure, I’m one of the many contributing writers)

  7. These are great blogs my some very smart people. One you should add to your list is Women Grow Business ( with its Editor, Jill Foster. Many if the people on this list have guest blogged there. She was just at the GrowSmartBiz conference and did a great job promoting female entrepreneurship.

  8. Thanks to everyone for the comments and recommendations. I am working on another list to include these recommendations. It’s great to connect with so many fantastic bloggers.

  9. I love the way you gave recognition to great women blogger especially those who do well in business.

    maybe it’s natural for women to be successful and yet never hesitate to share knowledge and expertise for free. I salute everyone who made it to this amazing list.

    I myself has been taking baby steps in running my own business and I really appreciate seeing a list like this for reference.

  10. Thanks Carol! I think it’s wonderful that successful women share their experiences and help other women. Congratulations on starting your own business and good luck!

    Sulaiman, thank you. We need men to champion the empowerment of women worldwide, especially in places where women are still seen as second class citizens.

  11. I just stumbled upon this…I can’t believe I haven’t seen this list yet! I follow a number of these blogs weekly. Thank you for pulling together a great list and for giving me some more blogs to check out.

  12. Great job for promoting women empowerment! I personally believe that women nowadays are closely competing with men when it comes to entrepreneurship and taking on the business world. Women should never be underestimated! That’s why as a woman, I believe that by having the right attitude, by nurturing my skills, being persevered, and most importantly being able to manage my time in order to make the most out of it will make me just as successful as other men! With that being said, I want to share this link to all of you where you can learn a lot about time management specially made for a successful woman like you. =) I hope you visit it and let me know what you think. =)

  14. As always, congratulations to the amazing women who was included in your list. I love women who empower other women. I am not ‘tooting’ my own horn but my blog, ‘Sylvia Browder’s Blog for Women Entrepreneurs’ and now authors provides resources and articles in the areas of beauty, entrepreneurship, health and wellness, financial wealth, spirituality and general news about women. In addition, I profile the work of authors and the success of women in business. In the last few weeks, I made several top lists. I am planning to add an ‘Ask Sylvia’ column to be able to answer business related questions.

  15. Hey Natalie! Thanks for this! Will have to check these out. Marie Forleo’s blog is really good too. Just watched your video on your favourite books…. my to-read list has blown up lol thanks for the material 🙂

  16. Just saw this great new product – MessagePetz on (the funding platform) – wish I didn’t have to wait until christmas to get one for my son – but it will be worth the wait! i don’t know if it will work but i attached the link.

  17. I really struggle to find decent business blogs out there – I am so glad I came across this site {though I am sure my morning self might regret this midnight stumble – after hours of addictive reading}
