5 women bloggers you really need to follow

Hey, I don’t think women are noted frequently enough for their accomplishments. Women dominate social media and have a huge impact in the blogosphere, but aren’t always recognized.

My team and I compiled a list of women bloggers who are the real deal. You should follow these folks on Twitter, and check out their blogs. These women are on top of of the latest tech news, nonprofit strategies, and social media trends.

5 Women Bloggers to Follow:

Xeni Jardin is an editor and blogger for Boing Boing, a web zine they describe as being “devoted to the weird, wonderful and wicked things to be found in technology and culture.” Independent for nearly 25 years, they publish a daily mix of short articles, long features, and video productions.


Beth Kanter is the author of Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media, one of the longest running and most popular blogs for nonprofits. Beth has over 30 years working in the nonprofit sector in technology, training, capacity building, evaluation, fundraising, and marketing.


Shelly Kramer blogs about internet marketing, social media, and tech at V3, a full service integrated marketing, digital communications and social media agency.


Kara Swisher is co-CEO of Revere Digital, co-executive editor and blogger for Re/code, and co-executive producer of The Code Conference. Re/code is an independent tech news, reviews and analysis site. Because everything in tech and media is constantly being rethought, refreshed, and renewed, Re/code’s aim is to reimagine tech journalism.

  1. Thanks for compiling this list! I would also recommend Melissa Atkins Wardy’s blog: http://pigtailpalsblog.com/. From her blog: “Our blog educates parents on media literacy, marketing, sexualization, gender stereotypes, and body image.”


    1. Like Synchronicity post, “Being a female it is just a coincidence”… I agree!


  2. I’m already following Shelly Kramer (she really does share good stuff) and will check out the others. Thanks for sharing this list. =)


  3. Ok Craig, I have to call you out on this. These lists are fine, but these people been done to DEATH already. I mean seriously – if these women don’t already have enough followers? As if they’re not all well known, sought after, and probably very well off financially by now?

    How about featuring some of the NON super stars? Super stars do NOT need any more attention. Kara Swisher? Xeni Jardin? Both of these women have let their success go completely to their heads are arrogant egoists (try to get a meeting with them if your name is not Craig Newmark!)

    I hope you can ramp up the quality of these lists. They just make it look like you’re ego stroking the same old same old – again, as if they need it.
