My Top 10 Blogger List of 2013

A blogger these days isn’t just someone writing about what they did that day. I think Facebook took care of that.  There are many types of bloggers: Mom(my), Travel, Humor, Fashion, Photography, Food/DIY, Entertainment, and the list goes on.

There are some bloggers that have been at it for many years, while others are just starting.  With social media in play, bloggers can get the word out about a company, brand that is excellent; or they are able to do the opposite. Either way their reach, opinions and content can really reach many people in many parts of the world. They are to say the least; influencial.

Although I have had my blog since 2009, it wasn’t until this past year and a half that I figured out where I wanted to go with it.  I still have a ways to go, but I wanted to shine a spot light on those blogger that I consider my Top 10 of 2013. These bloggers have encouraged me to strive to another level, and inspired me in what I have seen them do in this past year.

I turn 45 today and in the past few months have wondered if I will ever reach their level of what I consider success. I decided that with hard work and perserverance, I can reach a level of my own success. Thank you to those in my Top 10 List of 2013 for giving me someone to look up to. For the bloggers I consider close friends, along with some awesome PR Reps that I consider ‘top of the line’. Without you I would be fumbling along having to try even harder to find my way!

I know there are more, and I apologize if I have left you out. I am proud to be an Entertainment Blogger. I enjoy my job and my circle of friends. I have been able to experience things I never dreamed of, for instance going to LA twice in less than two years thanks to Disney.

Lifting others up not only helps the ones you lift up, it helps you see a bit higher; and reach to  a place you never dreamed or even imagined!
