25 Personal Development Bloggers to Rock Your World

I love reading, writing, growing, and creating. I love blogging!

I have a masters degree in counseling psychology so personal development was a natural niche for me when I started.

I find that other bloggers inspire me, motivate me, encourage me and challenge me. They make me laugh and they make me cry.

Some have become my friends, confidants, mastermind, and business partners. On my list of awesome bloggers you'll find some of the best bloggers, a few brand new ones, and many that are in between.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Today I want to share with you personal development blogs, that along with a commitment to take action, can change your world!

1. Everyday Bright  Jen Gresham is a scientist by training and an optimist at heart. She teaches others how to turn their career fantasy into reality.

2. The Daily Love Mastin Kipp offers a free e-multivitamin for your soul. He blends wisdom with style on his blog and delivers a daily email and Twitter messages for a fast paced lifestyle. 

3. The Happy Seeker Christopher Foster is the oldest (79 years) newest blogger online. He offers advice on how to achieve happiness, inner peace, and stillness in your life. Chris and I have become good friends.

4. Powered by Intuition Angela Artemis will inspire you and motivate you to make your dreams a reality by developing and following your intuition. Angela did a reading for me last year after my mom passed away. Amazing!

5. Abundance Tapestry Evelyn Lim will teach you how to turn your dreams into reality and inspire you to live abundantly and consciously.

6.  For a Better You and a Better World Arvind Devalia shares inspirational but practical advice on how you can leave the world a better place. 

8. Soul Speak Jodi Chapman and her husband Dan Teck will teach you the power of journaling and have created a Soulful Journals Series, to help you life a life of passion and meaning.

9. Simple Marriage Well known self-development blogger, Dr. Corey Allan is committed to love! He teaches that marriage is more about becoming a better human that it is about two people being happy. He's deep, inspiring and just plain awesome.

10. Balance In Me Anastasiya Goers just a regular girl who is health conscious and who offers practical advice on her blog derived from her own experiences of living a busy life while staying in great shape both physically and mentally.

11. The Bridgemaker Alex Blackwell offers themes of forgiveness, faith in difficult times, and appreciating the preciousness of each moment. 

12. Positively Present Dani's blog strives to support the idea that life is best lived if it's lived right now with a positive attitude. I've followed Dani since 2009 and have watched her and her blog take off and soar.

13. Motivational Memo Peter Sinclair is a "heart to heart resuscitation specialist" who wants to help you develop your strengths and live your passion.

14. Good Life Zen Here you'll find practical inspiration by Mary Jaksch where you can get a new take on life, and find creative ways to make your wildest dreams come true. 

15. Constantly Evolving Caroline Manrique is a self-taught brilliant photographer that writes personal stories and insights from her heart. She's raw, honest, and fun! I've hired her for both her photography and her design work.

16. Always Well Within Sandra Pawula intersects personal development, simple wisdom, wellness, and ecology. She invites readers to tap into their own inner spring of true happiness and freedom.

17. Change Your Thoughts Steve Aitchison has over 500 articles on his blog. He invites you to change your thoughts, beliefs, and actions to create a life that you love.  

18. Zen Habits I took three habit courses with Leo last year. I feel like I've gotten to know him better with both the webinars from the habit course and the webinars in the A-List Blogging Boot camps. Down to earth…awesome.

21. Zen-Mama Besty will inspire you to become a better parent. She posts stories and awesome family photos of her travels that will make you want to grab your kids and hit the road.

22. Treatment-Talk Blogging newcomer, Cathy Taughinbaugh is passionate about supporting people in recovery and others who want to live a life of inner peace and joy. 

23. Awake Create Fran Sorin will help you awaken your creative spirit so that you can live a more joyful, authentic, and meaningful life.

  • Cheryl February 7, 2012, 10:04 am

    Hi Tess–

    Thanks for a great list. I’m a fan of several bloggers on your list, but have now discovered a few more to check out.

    And since you said we could…

    I thought I’d include a plug for for my own blog, The Manageable Life (http://themanageableilfe.com). My tag line is “Choose to live better.” I believe it’s the choices that we make, each and every day, that determine the kind of live we lead.

    It seems that our approaches to living a “bold life” and a “manageable one” actually have a lot in common.

    Here’s to living a bold, exciting, and yes–manageable life!

  • winsomebella February 7, 2012, 2:55 pm

    Angela, Alex, Leo, Mary and Barrie are invaluable sources for me already. You are so correct in pointing out how much inspiration and strength and guidance we writers, especially, can gain from following and participating in their blogs. They offer many free online guides and services, as well. Hurray for blogging! It has saved my self-esteem completely, no kidding!

    It’s called ‘That Which Really Is’ ( http://thatwhichreallyis.blogspot.com ), and is a chronicle of my own personal life journey as I challenge myself, stretch my own boundaries and overcome my fears.

    Thank you for this blog. I have the same loves in my life, writing, reading, growing and creating.. Finding like minded beings is great, it feeds the fire to continue on the path. Sometimes what I write is a bit controversial to the masses, but I don’t know anymore how to not express my truth.

  • Jake January 3, 2013, 10:33 am

    WOW!!! Great list!! I’m just starting my own blog [http://www.jakerentuma.com] and I now have a list of people who I can look up to in this niche. Thank you very much for this post! I greatly appreciate this!

  • Ethan Poltrack January 19, 2013, 12:37 pm

    yeah its cool to hang out with like minded people. I think it’s T. Harv Eker that said when you complain you becoming a living crap magnet. It’s good to hang out with positive people. Thanks

  • JJ Wong January 20, 2013, 8:51 am
