The big fat list of blogs for women business owners

Looking to read more about running a business as a woman?

I thought it would be a nice idea to list all the blogs I know for women who own their own businesses. Some of these I read regularly and others were suggested to me on Twitter, Facebook or in the survey I ran a couple of weeks ago.

Some of the links below aren’t technically blogs, but as long as they include a decent amount of freely available articles or videos I’ve included them. They aren’t all aimed directly at women, but if they have a high proportion of women contributors, commenters or readers I’ve included those too. Also, I’ve included big blogs and small blogs, both new and established, as I find I can learn something from each one of them. I wanted to include as much great info as I could.

Oh and sincere apologies to anyone I’ve missed out – please do leave me a comment if you know of any!

  1. thanks Helen – have some of these bookmarked already and will be taking a look at the others – your recommendations have always been great in the past and this looks like another goodie!

  2. Wow, what a great list of blogs! I like the categories as well, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with a blog roll when you don’t know what their core message is. I’ll come back to this list for sure. Thanks so much for sharing and your “survey” idea was *ingenious*

  3. Thank you very much! The categories are pretty loose, but I thought it would be hard to find your way around such a long list without them. As for the survey – thanks to my fab readers for taking the time to give me their feedback!

  4. This is a great list and I’d love to be included. My name is Tai Goodwin and the blog is an online magazine for EmployedPreneurs – professionals who are launching a business while working fulltime: http/

    Stay Brilliant!

    1. Thanks Tai, I haven’t heard of your blog before so it’s good to ‘meet’ you. πŸ™‚ Loving the idea of an ’employedpreneur’!

  5. Fantastic! I shall be bookmarking this for future reference. It’s so exhausting to be a full time stay at home mum working full time from said home that I’m always looking for inspiration and for the relief that others find it hard at times too
