10 Women With Amazing Business Blogs

March 21, 2014By
Sarah Bird

Sarah Bird is the CEO of Moz.

I love reading all kinds of blogs. There are millions of different perspectives on life and you can really learn something from everybody. I love stumbling on a new blog and reading what the person has to say. You get a feel for their personality and it can make you think about life in a different way.

I like reading blogs about various topics including business, golf and psychology, but I also like stumbling on other types of blogs.

Recently, read a few great posts and realized they were by some really talented and really smart women in business. I wanted to put together a list of some great female business bloggers.

So here is a list of some of the great ones.

1. Sarah Bird

Sarah is the new CEO of Moz. Her taking over was one of the bigger stories early in 2014 in the tech world. The company’s former CEO, Rand Fishkin, has been very open and honest with his experiences taking Moz to great heights over the last several years. He keeps a blog and is very forthcoming with his story and it’s really helpful for other executives.

Sarah brings a new perspective to the popular Moz blog. Her first post was a recap of the year the company had in 2013. That was her first post on the Moz blog in a few years and I’m hoping she continues with a few more updates this year.

2. Michelle Zatlyn

Michelle is a co-founder at CloudFlare. Their products make your site supercharged with more capabilities including more speed. The CloudFlare blog has tons of good information including a great archive of posts from Michelle. She hasn’t posted one in about a year, but there is always hope that she picks up blogging again and until then you can read through her past posts.
