In all fairness there are literally thousands of great blogs out there, but due to a limited amount of time and attention span I have chosen to pick the top 7 blogs that I enjoy reading on the subject of blogging and business.
I do apologize that I was not able to include every blog that I like to read as there are a bunch of them, but I think that the ones I have provided here will be a great resource to anyone who enjoys blogging.
So without further a due:
Brian Clark and his crew of bloggers have done an amazing job on teaching others how to write great content.
Copywriting is a topic many bloggers have heard of, but few know how to truly do well.
Copyblogger breaks down several different important aspects of writing that can very easily elude bloggers who are both new and unexperienced when it comes to creating great, compelling content that readers will love.
If you are looking for ways to increase your writing skills, and trust me even the professionals (including myself :-) need help, then check out Copyblogger.com
Darren Rowse is not only a great business man when it comes to creating blogs (he has several successful blog niches), he’s also a great blogger in his own respects.
Problogger is a website dedicated to sharing the ideas and experiences from bloggers all over the world, including Darren himself and allowing them to write and post their experiences and knowledge on the website.
