When I first started Blooming Anomaly, I had very little knowledge of blogging. Since starting this gardening blog back in April of 2017, I have learned a ton, by reading and getting inspiration from other bloggers. Here are some of the best bloggers to follow in 2020.
For those of you who have been blogging for some time, you know how overwhelming all the information can be. I use to sign up with every blogger I found to copy their way of doing things. Since then, I’ve narrowed down my list to the few bloggers below.
Some blog about other topics besides blogging, such as saving money, beauty, and family. They all have one thing in common: they are all very successful at blogging! Some of these bloggers were able to see results within a few months of blogging, while others took years to get to where they are.
Despite all of these bloggers’ different blogging niches, you can learn something from each of them. Maybe you follow one or two of them already! Below are some of the best bloggers to follow in 2020.
The Reece Family of Its a Lovely Life!
I stumbled upon this family when skimming Facebook for blogging inspiration soon after I started by blogging journey. They were running a get to 10,000 followers contest at the time and I jumped on board. I was able to jump start my social media following with this contest and learned many other things about blogging along the way.
The Reece family started their blog all the way back in 2000, which has now grown into an impressive blog with 1 million fans. This family of five spends half the year traveling while inspiring others to start a blog and living a life they love.
If you appreciate information without fluff, Neil Patel is the blogger to you. His clean cut look on his blog and videos keeps you focused on all the great information he provides on blogging.
I love how he presents information by getting to the point immediately without too much extra information. If you click on his “Top 5 Tips to Improve SEO” video, he will get straight to the point on what his tips are and why, and that’s it.
Neil also has plenty of freebies on his site. I have been using his Ubersuggest keyword search tool, which is very useful to see if certain keywords are being searched, your competition, and more.
This New York Times Bestselling author has been blogging for years, so he definitely knows what he’s talking about!
I found Ell soon after blogging. This talented gal started her blogging journey around the same time I did. She started making money on her blog at six months and was soon blogging full time.
Ell also is the founder of Boss Girl Bloggers. Her Facebook group quickly grew to an impressive 30,000 followers and growing! She also has impressive following numbers on Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram.
What makes Ell stand out from the others is how quickly she was able to succeed with her blog. She did this on her beauty and lifestyle site, all while still in her mid-twenties!
Ell created an affordable Pinterest course during her first year blogging. I have yet to take it, but have read all the wonderful reviews from other bloggers who have.
Check out Ell’s beautiful lifestyle site here. Ell is such a dedicated blogger, that she also recently started another blog, Boss Girl Bloggers, dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs. Both sites are beautifully feminine with light colors and handwritten script.
Jeff Proctor and Ben Huber
While Jeff and Ben get tons of traffic and make lots of money on their blog, they are very honest with how long and how difficult this journey was. Their no nonsense Facebook group is a great place if you are a beginner blogger wanting to make money online.
I found these two while scrolling Facebook and joined their BTOP Facebook Group. They use to run weekly giveaways for blogging related goodies. Who doesn’t love free stuff, right?
I won Monica’s Froese’s Pin Practical Masterclass through these guys and was able to learn how to better use Pinterest to drive traffic to my blog through this class. I talk more about Monica and her impressive background below.
I didn’t know about Monica until I took her amazing Pin Practical Masterclass. I already was using Pinterest to drive traffic to my blog, but was able to increase that traffic thanks to Monica’s class!
Not only does Monica run a blog to help working moms balance their work and personal life, she is a mother of two herself. While working in the corporate world in 2015, Monica found time to speak to the President of the United States about balancing her work and home life as a mom.
Monica soon quite her job to run Redefining Moms full time in 2016. Check out everything she has to offer to working moms and bloggers on her site!
Michelle of Making Sense of Cents
If you have been blogging for some time, you will hear about Michelle at some point in time. She started her finance blog to help herself and others keep track of their finances. She made a name for herself by paying off almost $40,000 in student loans in seven months!
When Michelle is not busy running her blog and helping others with their finances, she is enjoying life on her sailboat.
Michelle is also the creator of Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing and was featured in a CNN newsreel for making a million dollars blogging. She is definitely one of the best bloggers to follow in 2020!
