Nikki is one cool woman. Let me tell you why - the dress she's wearing on her landing page is amazing. She thinks the most important thing in the online world is communication. She's been featured on a lot of top websites and publications. Oh, and she tripled her income. Enough said, really.

25. Secrets Of A Side Hustler

I'm sure you'll have all heard the phrase "side hustle" going around blogs here, there and everywhere. So it's only right that there's a website dedicated to it! Secrets of a Side Hustler is all about finding out the secrets of starting, growing and marketing a business while you're working a full time job. This site has got so many great resources for you to check out. But what's even better is that they've got a thriving community.

26. The Alisha Nicole

I go on this website every single day and I know you will too. And because it's so great, I'm just going to leave it to Alisha...

Here's what Alisha has to say:

"I help creative women turn their passion into a profitable online business through my blog and one on one coaching services. What I believe makes me stand out is the fact that I am very transparent about my personal journey as a business owner. My readers know that if they ask, I have no problem sharing what I've learned from failure and success. Also, I speak (and write) to my audience as if they are already my best friends. I think it's what makes my community feel so much more relateable!"

27. Julie Harris Design

Do what you love and love what you do - two things you know Julie Harris is really passionate about. You know that whether shes's working with a client, communicating in her Facebook group (which you should definitely join!) or writing a blog post, all she wants to do is help people.

Here's what Julie has to say:

"I strive to redefine what it means to be an online business professional by collaborating with other entrepreneurs, small businesses, freelancers, and bloggers to create brands that look, act, sound, and feel just like them.
I believe that we are our brands. Our brands are us. Our brand is a direct reflection of who we are and what we stand for.  People may not remember what we say, but they will always remember how we made them feel.  
There is nothing small about being a small business owner. We may be small but we are fierce. We have the ability from day one to create an experience that touches at the hearts and minds of the people we connect with, and that is truly powerful."

28. Betty Means Business

Not only does this site have a great name, but it's also jam packed full of great information. From mini guides to checklists and a great newsletter, Kate who runs Betty Means Business, is definitely a leader in the playing field.

Here's What Kate Has To Say:

"I help women coaches and consultants create truly irresistible premium offers, charge (and be paid!) what they're worth and intentionally engineer success so they can shine neon bright. In my own consulting firm I've tripled my fees, commanded 5 figure days and generated $50k+ months - and I'm excited to share my secrets and shortcuts so you can too!"

29. Design School Canva

Most of you will know that I already rave about Canva, so there was no question about including them in this round up. Canva is a design tool that makes it really easy for you to create graphics and images for your blog, plus great social media images too. The blog called Design School is - you guessed it! - all about design. But for me, it's one of the best marketing design blogs I've ever come across. The key is that they can help anyone become a designer. Their blog just goes to prove that it's possible.

30. MailChimp

For those of you who don't know, MailChimp is a piece of email marketing software. It lets you set up campaigns to send out to your email subscribers and allows you to place sign up forms on your website to let you get that all important email address. Their blog shows you how to do that. They talk about creating great subject lines, the power of email and all the tips you need for creating a great email marketing strategy. It's the best email marketing blog I know.

31. Blogging Your Passion

This site was founded by a guy called Jonathan in 2011. His mission is to help bloggers become better bloggers. He does this by sharing his tips and knowledge of how he became a better blogger. He's been featured in Life Hacker, Business Week and a whole host of other places, because his tips are just that good.

32. Boost Blog Traffic

This blog is so good, I'm just going to go ahead and let it be explained for you!

"So, let me guess.  You wouldn’t exactly call your blog “popular,” right? You don’t have a huge audience … but you do  care about the readers you have, and you do care about creating really good content.
You write a great post — the kind of exceptional content that builds a relationship with your customers. You publish it to your blog. You wait for the visitors to come stampeding in, and …
Nothing happens.
No comments. No tweets. No pats on the back, telling you you’re doing a good job.
It’s wrong.
And after years of watching from the sidelines, writing for huge blogs like Copyblogger, I’ve finally decided to do something about it:
I want to teach you everything I know about building a popular blog.
Yep. 
Everything."

33. Be The Vibe

I came across Be The Vibe on Jen’s website – she always does great round ups. This was one of my best finds. Go to the home page of Sian’s website and the first thing you see is text that says:

“Live your truth so fiercely, others follow your lead.”

“Your truth” are the words that stood out to me. Sian’s aim is to help you find your truth, whatever that truth might be. She gives you tips on branding, creating and maintaining your business, and living life as someone who is self-employed. What she does is different and that’s why it’s so great.

34. Amanda Genther

Coming up with ideas can be hard. But Amanda wants you to get past those stumbling blocks and dive right into your next big idea.

“I write about making your ideas happen, pushing past resistance and launching your digital programs over on my blog. I also talk about my experience with running a business, the challenges (and blessings) of being a work-at-home-mom to a sweet little boy and tips on how to increase your productivity and reach your goals.”

She’s got everything covered. Branding, Launching, List Building – you can find everything you need on this site. Amanda talks to you in a very down to earth way and covers issues you won’t find anywhere else. Her content is a must-read.

35. Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur is the number one go-to site for entrepreneurs. Whether you’ve been doing it for five years, or you’re thinking about making the transition, this site has got everything you need. Growth Strategies, Success, Communication, Young Entrepreneurs, Change, and Productivity – the topics they create content about are endless. They sell books, do coaching and have some huge names as contributors. If you’re not reading Entrepreneur, click on the link to it right now!

These guys publish a hell of a lot of content each day. My advice would be to go through the topics that interest you the most and dedicate an afternoon to reading as much as you can. You’ll come across some seriously great articles.

36. Sarah Von Bargen

The tagline to Sarah’s site is: “making you awesome on the internet.” Here’s what she has to say about it:

“Over the last five years I’ve grown my blog to 11,000+ daily readers – and I did it without surrendering my life to social media or working 12 hours a day.
Now I use that hard-won knowledge to work with clients one-on-one, creating gloriously specific, just-for-you plans that make your online space hum with traffic and awesomery.”

She uses the word “awesomery”. I was sold right then.

37. Bombchelle

For number 37, I thought I’d let Michelle take the lead:

"I created Bombchelle so that creative freelancers could find a place to learn about productivity, systems, and business...without being bored out of their mind. My goal is always to find new tools people can use, and to show them how to use those tools in a way that works for their business, without getting too far into "one size fits all" territory. What keeps you productive and creative might not be the same as what works for me...and that's okay!"

38. Olivia Adams PR

I’ve never come across a site like Olivia’s before. With so many people creating the same content, it’s refreshing to find someone who’s blogging about something completely different. In her words:

“Olivia Adams PR is a public relations blog for today’s creative. Whether you’re a PR student, marketing professional, creative writer, or business owner, this is a space where you can find resources to help you build your brand and develop authentic relationships.
Not only is this blog dedicated to learning, but it’s also a place where you can grow as a professional. As a public relations professional, I love helping others find their voice, build their brand, and connect with the right people. Hopefully, you’ll leave my blog feeling inspired and ready to chase after your passions!”
