It’s time for part 3 of our top blogs to follow in 2019list. These lists have become so popular that I just can’t help cranking a new one out every month or so.
Since many bloggers follow the site, I’ve taken a collection of blogs that I personally follow, and researched some others (which I’m now following), that focus specifically on blogging advice.
It’s safe to say we all knew the blogging niche is pretty crowded, and there are so many contenders for a list of top blogs for bloggers. Which made it all the more harder to choose.
