7 Blogging & Business Bloggers You Should Follow

Lets chat the business of blogging. Part of becoming a Certified Personal Trainer has been developing a business plan for becoming a girl boss (my new favorite hashtag!) and Jill Conyers | Fitness Health & Happiness is part of that plan. This list of bloggers has been a tremendous help in creating a business plan and building my business.

A happier than usual Friday to everyone because that’s how it feels. Maybe it’s the fact that I continue to enjoy this feeling of total balance in life and a peace that, no matter what I’m doing, surrounds me. If I could bottle this feeling for all to enjoy, I would be a wealthy woman!

Lets chat the business of blogging.

Part of becoming a CPT has been developing a business plan for becoming a girl boss (my new favorite hashtag!) and Jill Conyers | Fitness Health & Happiness is part of that plan.

I recently realized the reading list on my computer has changed drastically. The blogs I follow and read most often are a balance of fitness/recipes, nutrition and, most recently, the business of blogging. Essentially, the reading list is a reflection of fitness, health and happiness and the section of happiness a.k.a. business and blogging blogs has grown and has become my not to be missed reads.

I’ve absorbed myself in not only rebranding, but also learning all that I can about the business of blogging. It’s a slow process and the following ladies have been a tremendous help. I look forward to their emails in my inbox.

    1. Thanks so much Katie for you kind words! I can easily spend hours reading blogs about blogging. Much love xoxo

  38. this makes me want to get more organized! which i need! love the round up! and love your inspiraiton. will check them out

  39. Thank you for sharing these! It’s been fun watching your blog grow and evolve. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with mine–it’s always been kind of a public diary for me. I want to keep writing for me and for my readers–and that doesn’t always click with sponsors. Interesting…

    1. You’ll find what works for you Wendy. My blog evolved kind of unintentionally until I hit that place and knew this is it. This is what I want for jillconyers dot com. Then the intentional started.

      Have a wonderful weekend Wendy.

  40. These are great. You definitely have gotten more to the business side of things, and I hope/I’m sure that it will work for you!

    1. I’m optimistic about making it work. As much as I love blogging my passion is doing and sharing what I love in real life. Creating both 🙂

  41. I took By Regina’s course earlier this year. It was incredible! I still go back and reference many things she taught in it. I also read these other ladies as well!

    1. Taking a course by one of these ladies is on my to-do list for early next year. It’s hard to choose which one. Have a fantastic weekend Megan!

  42. Yay! Can’t wait to check out your boards, thanks for sharing! 🙂

  43. I learn something new everyday! This is a great list, I will check them out. Thank you for sharing, I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    1. Happy to share the blog business love! There’s so much great info. Enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend Amanda.

  45. I read a LOT about blogging and follow a few of the bloggers that you recommend. There is so much great info out there, but honestly I get more excited when I see women entrepreneurs killing it with their blogs! Blogger2Business is a great Facebook Group with like-minded folks. I’m still trying to figure out how business-y I want my blog to be!

    1. Hi Janelle. My blog has slowly evolved over the years until I knew, this is it, this is what I want my blog to be. Does that make sense? I’m a member of B2B but have yet to take the time to see what it’s all about. Maybe today. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you Coco! I have to ask and actually I feel like I should already know. Is Coco a nickname? I always wonder 🙂
