In January I announced a monthly series of the 30 best of #30bestof. This will be the first overview in this series. Ladies first, so I will start an overview of the 30 best female bloggers on marketing, social media and entrepreneurship.
It took me a while to collect a list of great female and male bloggers. Both lists have now more than 30 bloggers so I can choose the best ones. The 30 best Male bloggers will be published in March. First, in alphabetical order, the best female bloggers.
My idea is to give you new content ideas, inspiration for your bog. Add the ones you like the most to your feedreader or subscribe to the newsletters and get inspiration delivered to you.
I think that posts like Are you on first-name terms with your buyer personas? and Marketing lessons from ‘the other’ Adele are great.
A great post by Amber Change Is Sexy, Until it Costs.

I really love what Laura Roeder http://lauraroeder.com does. She works actively with video and is always launching programs. A very successful lady.
Lately you really have to look for Laura’s (@lkr) posts and there are lots of guest posts. Funny if you watch this video He Who is the Most Consistent Wins where she talks about blogging, sending newsletters to keep your clients informed and up to date.

Conversation Agent by Valeria Maltoni is a blog with quality content on marketing and technology. Book reviews, selection of articles to stipulate a point, forward thinking. Always informative.
It was really difficult to make this selection. Some bloggers did not make the list although I like what they wrote, but they are not blogging anymore. No use to show you a blog that is not active.
Then I had to make a selection to keep it on 30 blogs. Come on ladies that was impossible to do. Some blogs had to go, but this is my list. Even though it is more than 30 (+7) it is my list for you. You Like?
