    Great work – we can appreciate the research you have done here to produce an excellent resource.

    While we tend to be kind of anti-personal development in a striving and toiling type way at The Freedom Bus (I guess we’re more taoist). we recognize there is much good stuff to be read here.

    As others have said, many well known names, but also for us many we haven’t read. And if one can judge a blog by the quality of its peers that means we have much great content to read.

    Thanks again,

    Ian & Kate

    @Vered

    You are welcome. 🙂

    @Glen

    I love the list you got there. I did photoshop a little of your photo and I’m really bad at it. Sorry that the photo turn out this way. I got to improve on photoshop skills. 🙂

    @Positively Present

    Do check them out. All of the bloggers listed have great articles on their site. But beware of information overloading. 😉

    @Writer dad

    Thanks for visiting and also for your comment.

    @Armen Shirvanian

    It is really hard to create a successful blog and I hope this list can help others to find out about their work. 🙂

    @Shaun

    I got to admit it took out quite some time to compile this list. But I believe the effort is worth it if I am able to share with others some of the great personal development bloggers and blogs in the blogosphere.

    @Anthony

    Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the list.

    @Bud

    Problogger is one of the blogs that I keep track too. It is a great blog definitely but I believe it provides more information on regards about blogging. Anyway I’m glad that this list will help you to find suitable blogs for guest posting. Good luck!

    @Celes | Embraceliving.net

    You are welcome. You got to check out the other bloggers too. I was surprised by the amount of high quality blogs when I was digging around for them.

    @Albert | UrbanMonk.net

    You are welcome. You have great articles at your blog and seeing the amount of subscribers you have, I definitely got to include you in the list. 🙂

    @FFB

    Do check them out . They have lots of valuable knowledge and experience to share with us. 🙂

    @Marelisa

    You are welcome. 🙂

    What an awesome list Vincent, thank you for including me 🙂

  31. FFB says:

    Awesome list of writers and their sites!

  32. Thank you for adding me to the list! That’s very kind of you 😀

  33. Hey Vincent, thanks a lot for including me on this list! This is really an extensive and quality list. I love how you added a profile picture and description for each of the bloggers. I’m going to check out the other bloggers now.

  34. Bud Hennekes says:

    Great list Vincent! I was just trying to decide on a list of blogs I want to guest post for and this list made my life so much easier!

    I would have included Problogger on the list even though his blog is mostly about blogging. He supplies a great deal of information on how to be a better person! 🙂

  35. Anthony says:

    Wow, that’s quite an extensive list there.

  36. Shaun says:

    Lovely list, I really like that you included a blurb and a photo for each blogger. Must have taken you some time!

  37. This list is chock full of individuals that I am quite glad to know of. There are some others on the list that I don’t know of personally, but read articles from, and then there are a couple I did not know of at all.

    You’ve created a wonderful listing here, and the pictures do well to provide us with a sense of the people behind the valuable content.

  38. Writer Dad says:

    Awesome list, hard to argue with a single one!

  39. What a wonderful list!! I’ve heard of some of these but not all of them and I’m really looking forward to checking out the sites I haven’t visited before. Thanks for posting this!
