An inspirational guide for blog readers and bloggers!
Do you love reading blogs and are you looking for new awesome, inspirational, and interesting blogs to follow in 2021? Or are you a blogger that wants to learn from and get inspired by other great bloggers? Then this post is for you!
In this post you find my favorite blogs divided by niche. Since my own blog is about blogging and business tips, I obviously mostly follow blog- and business bloggers as well. This is why most of the blogs you find in this post, are about this topic as well.
However, don’t run away just yet! You’ll also find awesome lifestyle, personal, travel, food & nature blogs!
Some of these blogs have been around for quite some time and already have a large following, while others are still relatively new, but are working really hard to conquer their place on the internet too.
But… each and every blog I mentioned in this post is worthy of being mentioned on this list of most inspiring & interesting blogs, and should be on everyone’s to-follow list for 2021!
I know how difficult the blogging business is, and the effort it takes to make it on the internet. And although this is a very competitive business, I believe bloggers should help and support each other when we can.
I believe your success is determined by what you do for others, and not so much by what you do for yourself. This is why I came to the idea to put all these amazing, hardworking & inspiring bloggers and their blogs in the limelight today.
Have fun reading this post about the most interesting blogs to follow in 2021, and hopefully, my favorite blogs will be yours too after reading this post!
PS. Do you want to start blogging, too? Start with my blogging guide for beginners. I’ll take you through the process of starting your very own blog in 9 simple steps! And if you already have a blog and struggling with creating content that converts, please read my post about writing blog posts that convert like crazy!
Blogging & Business Blogs

Nadim: “With the current economy and coronavirus situations, many people have flocked to online opportunities, with little or no knowledge of how to operate”.

Today her blogs are popular by many and with Boss Girl Bloggers she has built an amazing community for women who want to learn how to grow their blogs and online businesses. And it is being said her course Pinterest with Ell is the best Pinterest course out there.

Online Business Growth Hacks
Louise, the creator of Online Business Growth Hacks, is an entrepreneur and an ex tech marketing leader with a passion for people and process. She now helps other small business owners and bloggers achieve their dreams both online and in life.
On her blog, you can find tips about blogging & entrepreneurship, and also about wellbeing and mindset. Most blogs only focus on either mindset, or on business tips, but I believe a successful business can not exist if it wasn’t for the positive mindset of the owner. That’s what makes her blog unique to me!
If you’re looking for great business and mindset tips Online Business Growth Hacks is definitely a blog to follow for you!
Panda Making Money
Lomash, the creator of Panda Making Money, created this blog nearly a year ago to spread knowledge about digital marketing and building an online business. Topics that he covers making money online, blogging- and social media marketing tips.
So far it has been a great journey for Lomash. He wrote his first interview, monetized his blog, made his first affiliate commission (Congrats!) and met some great people in the blogging community!
He believes consistency is one of the biggest factors when it comes to building a successful blog, and he knows how hard and challenging it is for a blogger to maintain consistency. You have to stay motivated along the way, and at the same time don’t get yourself overwhelmed with blogging.
Rach Talks Business
Rachel is the face behind Rach Talks Business, a platform she created during the first lockdown to support small businesses through these uncertain times. She is passionate about helping others and incredibly proud how her little blog grew!
She has received so many messages from small businesses thanking her for her support and she is proud to have created something that benefited those who struggled the most.
If you have a small business and could use business and blogging tips, Rach Talks Business is a blog you should definitely follow!
I’ve been following this blog since I first started blogging. Angela and her blog StrayCurls have been a great source of inspiration for me. And not only because of her great, informative blog posts, but Angela designs all her illustrations herself! Yes, she creates all those awesome graphics herself! Wow!
If only I had it in me to create graphics like hers, but my drawings are comparable to those of a 3-year-old (or even worse). 😉 So, I just choose to enjoy Angela’s graphics instead.
StrayCurls is a blog for women who want to start a blog, who already have a blog and want to monetize it and for the advanced blogger who wants to grow her blog traffic.
TechnoVans is created by Vanesh, who is a Software Engineer by profession and is blogging on the side as a hobby. Which is amazing, because blogging is very time-consuming. Yet, you can find lots of great content here!

I always love to read inspiring personal business stories, and on TechnoVans you find many interviews with bloggers and people who work in technology.
The Country Executive
The creator of The Country Executive, Shane, is born and raised in rural Texas. He joined the Air Force and left for 20 years to grow his career. He got experience, educated, and succeeded in LA, DC, the Bay Area.
Back home in Texas in 2018, he met many people that thought like he used to, he could never do XYZ. He was raised similarly but learned through experience anything is possible if you apply yourself. Now he wants to share those lessons learned, inspire people that more is possible, and to be the best version of themselves.
That’s why he started his blog in April 2020, and never looked back!
Tia Says is a blog created by Ekta Swarnkar and she blogs about blogging and money-making tips. Next to blogging, she is currently studying to become a librarian, which she will be finishing in a year!
As a real bookworm, she loves books and wanted to pursue her passion for books, which is why her first blog was a book blog. She quickly discovered she also loves to write herself and the real power of blogging. She learned the basics of blogging while creating her book blog, and realized she wanted to help other creative minds to give their passion a spark, as well.
Ekta decided to start a second blog for this cause, and voila, Tia Says was born. A platform where she shares her best blogging tips to help beginning bloggers!

Madelinewilsonojo.com started out life as a ‘book & communications blog’. According to Madeline it spawned from a place of frustration; whilst applying for and experiencing many job applications. She decided to carve out her own space in the career path she wanted.
She started this blog in 2016, so she could speak freely about her love for books as well as provide an educational platform for people who fit her demographic (young, black, and from a particularly affluent background) who’d like to break stereotypes by asserting themselves professionally in the workplace without intmidation.
Since then the blog has expanded to include more exciting material, and now it’s the place she lovingly refers to as the place where we amplify the voice of the strong black lead, through book reviews, film reviews, and real-life interviews!
CJ Hall‘s author, Kathryn, has been a blogger since 2007, and now she has a blog page on her website where she likes to publish short(ish) posts about her travels, her family, her personal life, and her thoughts.
She blogs because she finds it therapeutic to write creatively and as an author she feels it’s important to write each day, even if it’s just a sentence or two. It also helps her to combat the frequent writer’s block episodes we all know all too well when she expresses herself in her blogs.

Her blog is a place where she shares stories from her life and what she’s learned from the experiences. And it’s where she shares her ponders about how she believes we can all make our lives more fulfilling and true.

Her blog focuses on writing tips, and serves as a platform for other authors through her author interviews, and story times – which are two stories that she posts new installments of weekly.

Last, but definitely NOT least: meet Lisa, the amazing creator of The blog of a 20-something year old.

She is very new to blogging but has always loved writing, and plans for all of us to hear a lot more from her and about her as she progresses with her blog.
