Top 10 Bloggers that Rock the Blogging World!

(Left Photo Credit to: ladymonroe)

The blogosphere is full of entertainers, educators, hooligans, and misfits that both inspire me to be better at what I do, and improve my business, so today I want to pay homage to a few of my favorites. I’ve tried to pick a few of each type, therefore not all of them will be business bloggers. I think it’s important to learn from people…

Outside of Your Niche !

In no particular order, here they go:

1.  Brian Clark

Brian Clark is a great businessman, and his blog is full of masterful copywriting and content marketing tips. But that’s not why I follow him. I follow Brian because of what he does outside of his blog, not because of what he writes on it. For example, his product creation process is fantastic, and the way he pulled off the merger with Genesis was brilliant. Brian isn’t a blogger…

He’s an Entrepreneur !

2.  Darren Rowse

Darren Rowse is one of the godfathers of blogging and it’s because of him that bloggers like me know the power of list posts, traffic funnels, and niche blogging. Digital Photography School is a master class in niche marketing, and Problogger.net is what I like to call “blogging 101;”

It’s a Fantastic Place for
Any New Blogger to Start !

3.  Fred Wilson

Fred is a venture capitalist in New York City that doesn’t use his blog to make money directly, but still updates it at least once per day. Fred is the epitome of how to use blogging as a brand building and educational platform, and its because of his blog that I’m able to understand…

The Startup Scene and
Venture Capital Industry So Well !

4.  Pat Flynn

Pat started off teaching passive income strategies for online marketers, and even though I feel he’s gone astray a bit to become a non-passive pro blogger, I still admire his strategy for making money online. And who can argue, his last report showed gross earnings of over 40k in a single month…insane! Pat makes money with iPhone apps, niche blogs, affiliate marketing, and product creation, so if you want to learn how to diversify…

He’s Your Go-to-Guy !

5.  The Oatmeal

Matthew Inman, the creator of The Oatmeal, is on what I believe to be his third successful online venture. The first was a dating site that was later acquired by a competitor, the second was as the co-founder of SEOmoz, and the third as The Oatmeal, where he’s made loads of cash monetizing

Hilarious
Web Comics and
Doodles !

Though his blog is different, I still call him a blogger because of his content marketing method. If you want to learn how to make money outside the make money online niche, then you can’t help but want to soak up…

Every Bit of Knowledge
From Him that You Can !

6.  Cameron Moll

There is no substitute for quality, which is why I think Cameron Moll is one of the best in the business. Though he’s a designer, his work transcends design in a way that brings it to the commoner, like you and I, and helps us appreciate and understand the importance of great design. His blog is full of great links and ideas, and his Colosseo piece is one of the best pieces of art I’ve ever seen. Want to learn how to market something?

Check Out the Video Sales Page,
it’s Brilliant !

7.  SEOmoz

I spoke of SEOmoz a bit ago in respect to their lead designer, but now I want to address the work of the current team and their CEO, Rand Fishkin, who has helped to create one of the best SEO blogs on the web. SEOmoz has great content to help budding bloggers learn how to optimize their on and off page SEO, but also has a ton of great tools to help you do that even better. If you want SEO help…

This is Where
You Need to Start !

8.  37 Signals Blog (Signal vs Noise)

Though this blog has lost some of its luster since David and Jason no longer write for it frequently, I still believe it to be one of the best small business marketing and product related blogs on the planet. The thing I like about these guys is that their philosophy bleeds through on the page, and you can’t help but read it and either love or hate them. Before their business became a multi-million dollar one, they used SVN to build an audience that cared, and…

It Payed Off Big Time !

9.  Seth Godin

You can’t help but be impressed by a man that is able to say so much with so little. Seth’s posts might only be a few hundred words, but they feel like a few thousand. His ability to get at the core of an issue, and pinch until it hurts, is why I am able to get value from him day in and day out. It’s also why I buy his books and support his efforts at the Domino Project. Seth is an oddball, but…

I Love Him for it !

10.  Gary Vaynerchuk

What can I say about Gary that hasn’t already been said? He’s a ball of fire, full of passion, and one of the most inspirational guys I’ve watched or read. He is always innovating, always building, and always motivating, and if it weren’t for him, I would have had some very dark days. Sadly, Wine Library TV is no longer running, but you can get your Gary fix via…

His Books,
Videos, and
Interviews !

So these are my favorite ten bloggers across the web, but I’m sure I missed a few. The thing about blogging is that the industry is changing every day. I wanted to include Leo Babauta, Chris Guillebeau, Hugh MacLeod, Danny Sullivan, and a hundred others, but maybe I’ll save them for next time.

Stay Frosty,

The Bad blogger

Argie Monroy May 19, 2011 at 2:43 pm

I’ve been through there sometimes. And I’m using their free tools as well. Although I didnt know that SEOmoz is a blog until you featured it here. Anyway, one of my favorite tools from them is Trifecta. I’m sure you’ve make use of it as well.

Haha it was a little bit of a surprise seeing the 37signals blog on the list, but it is a sweet spot. As for the others on the list, I pretty much had them named before I opened the post based on what everyone always says. Crazy part is I’ve only had a chance to check out CopyBlogger and Darren’s blog a while back. It’s been a while maybe Ill head over and see what new stuff is going on.

These are great bloggers and they have had major impact on our thinking though I believe there are indie bloggers that kick most of these guys ass when it comes to blogging. I am not talking about speaking like Gary does so well or Fred when it comes to VC and trends or Seth and his brilliant marketing mind (untouchable). I simply don’t agree that these are the top 10 Blogger that Rock in the Blogging World. It’s to thin of a slice based on popularity not really RAWKING IT~! ;)

Well, everyone had their rock blogger, to me they does rock the blogging world especially not just their content but the way they blog and move in the blogging world. But I believe there are a lot more which I didn’t know, well… do you mind naming a few, so that the readers here and me knows about them?

Reply

Tony Berkman May 21, 2011 at 1:55 am

You’re right each one does rock.

There are so many incredible bloggers that rock that it almost requires narrowing them down by category.

Seth definitely rocks no matter how you shake it when it comes to new media, breakthrough thinking, using blogs and new technology to market. He’s untouchable.

If you were to ask what’s the best attorney blog I have read it is Robert Scott Lawrence http://www.whoisyourlawyer.com/

In the last 30 minutes I found 2 blogs that I think rock for different reasons. If you have similar interests to me in reading positive blogs that focus on the joy of life and on gratitude, this blog rocks http://positivelypresent.typepad.com/

If you are aging :) and are a creative person, I love this blog http://middlemojo.com/ Not only is the design stunning. The content is unique and the presentation rich and relevant to their mission of understanding “what happens when creative people get older and older people get creative.”

Your list certainly includes bloggers who have massive horsepower of success to fuel them to new heights. My mission is to find Indie Bloggers who rock yet aren’t discovered or whom may never be discovered yet they rock their particular niche.

Thanks for an interesting thread.

Best,

Tony

Seriously speaking I have come across a few of them, not all and now I am wonderign how I missed such amazing bloggers. As for Seth Godin, I had one of my readers really wondering why people like him, because he really doesn’t blog, just leaves his “thought for the day” on it and she was surprised how so so many people ended up liking him. Well personal preferences that everyone is entitled to but is was hard arguing with her.
Thanks for the amazing list. Have a great day!

Well… Seth’s thought is something that usually amaze people, and of course not everyone is into him, just like I might like some of his thoughts but not all, everyone had their personal views in certain content, so is always 50/50 in terms of which one you actually like and not like…

Jason May 21, 2011 at 4:31 pm

It’s a really nice gesture to make a shoutout to the blogs that you consider to be at the top of the industry. Bloggers sure can learn a lot from seeing how others blog. With the things they learn, they can definitely enhance their own blog.
