These are the bloggers who I love with utmost devotion and love..and yes, some (okay, a lot of) envy. These are some of my favorites for whom I make time to follow and read about. These people have been my inspiration, my virtual online support system, my source of laughter and my rock stars. These people influence a big community and give countless bloggers the reason to believe every day that life is never easy, but if you can give your best, success has no option but to award you the prize.
They already maybe in your list of followed sites. But, feel free to hop onto their social media accounts and say hi.. 🙂
1. Cait from Paper Fury
If there is anyone who can tell you the meaning of the killer blog titles, it’s Cait. Just reading her blog post title will make you want to read all the other post titles from the sidebar. Even her comments are so awesome that I am happy to love and envy her.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Writing skills
My Favorite moment: She calls herself with so many names and addresses her readers with a variety of names as well. I seriously laugh at times by her use of ‘splendiferous’ words, but they also seem more personal that I feel like I actually know her, even though I don’t (if sending her a couple of emails count as knowing her).
Reach her at @PaperFury!
2. Melyssa Griffin from MelyssaGriffin.com formerly known as The Nectar Collective
Melyssa is a superhero in social media, more specifically Pinterest. She is the proud owner of the site formerly called as The Nectar Collective and now branded with her own name. Melyssa blogs about entrepreneur and blogging tips, along with offering courses – one of the very popular course being the Pinfinite Growth.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Confidence
My Favorite Moment: Nowadays, most bloggers share their income report in order to benchmark themselves and inspiring others to grow further. Did you see her March 2016 income report? It’s not the income that made me WOW that post (even though it’s really really incredible how much a freelancer can earn), but it’s the honesty with which she shared how she made such huge income.

3. Sarah Morgan from xoSarah
Sarah is a blogger wiz, specializing in coaching people on how to grow their blog audience and establish your blog and business with successful and profitable results. I am in Sarah’s Slack community and she seriously has some commitment towards her members. She never left a comment or question unanswered, even though she was not tagged in it. I wish I had that type of commitment towards my commentors. 🙂
The very idea of this blog post came from one of her newsletters. Thank you, Sarah!
Reason for envy (LOVE): Dedication, Relaxed approach
My Favorite Moment: Sarah’s relaxed approach to things is amazing. Where did I notice it? Webinars, group chats, and meetings. Her way of handling things are really cool.

4. Leah Kalamakis from The Freelance to Freedom Project and LeahKalamakis.com
Leah is someone who I closely connect with, even though she doesn’t know that. 🙂 If you ask me one name in my sleep of who I dedicatedly stalk for the past few months, it’s Leah. She is INCREDIBLE. As with others on this list, I didn’t know her personally, but if some day, I need an advice about my life, blog and business, I will undoubtedly turn to her. Her courses are one of the few which yields immediate results. If you are looking to take action in your freelance business, you should take a look of her awesome courses.

5. Ash from The Middle Finger Project
“The Middle Finger Project” – The name should say Ash’s personality. She follows a humorous approach to getting things to her readers, which actually works great. If you haven’t already, you much definitely go read her posts. She will make you think while laughing – it’s called WIT.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Website design and Guts
My Favorite Moment: Have you worked your way through Ash’s website? Just try a search – this is what fills the whole screen. There are so many other examples. She doesn’t follow rules like others. She seems to have her own and they are so good. Just getting into her website makes me happy. And don’t forget the posts which contain audio. Go follow her and enjoy!

6. Erin E Flynn from ErineFlynn.com
Erin is a blogger that I newly have taken a liking to. Informative blog posts and simplistic design is her charm.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Simplicity
My Favorite Moment: Not yet. I just love her post ideas. It’s different and what I would like to read in recent days of my busy work. I have to know more about her, in order to have a favorite moment with her or her site.

7. Nellie from Nellie and Co.
I know Nellie only strictly via my Feedly. She has some awesome content there. While most of my Feedly contents are inspiring, Nellie’s content are informative and productive.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Amazing content
My Favorite Moment: Her “Blogger Love” posts are the main reason I find new bloggers that I can love. My Feedly has so many new entries because of her.

8. Krista from Krista Rae
Krista is another passionate blogger who moved from a full time job to being an solopreneur. Whenever I read the posts from her, it’s like someone pushing you from all sides to do something you love.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Passion
My Favorite Moment: Her recent post of “From Side Hustler to Solopreneur” is one of the most favorite moments that I had in her site. It was honest, but inspiring. It’s really really great how she managed to get past the biggest fear of anyone’s life – insecurity. You have to read it to know what I am raving about.
9. Ashley from Nosegraze
Ashley is the reason I know many of the above bloggers. Her site is where I found these people. She is the first freelancer, who inspired me that things can be different in the world of books, reviews and monotonous design and marketing. Her posts, her design, her courses and her freebies – they all stood unique in the land of book blogging or what I know of it.
Reason for envy (LOVE): Creative thinking
My Favorite Moment: I would forever be grateful for the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin. If you see her shop, things are different than most other shops. She created what is required and what helps us save time, rather than just pretty themes (which she does as well).

10. Jenny from The Bloggess
I have been in love with her writing even before I started blogging. She is one of the few bloggers who I follow since dinosaurs roamed the Earth or older than that. Her posts crack me up.
Reason for envy (LOVE): For Being herself!
My Favorite Moment: Any blog posts mentioning her daughter, cats and her poor (or not) husband. 🙂
