9 of the Best Probloggers of 2010


When it comes to blogging for profit there are many people who are on the horizon taking their aim at the money to be made. However, when it comes to truly connect, engaging and reaching a market, the many become a smaller amount because only a remnant get the fact that real problogging happens not when you toss a link in a blog post; but rather when you can truly get folks to react and take action.  They come from all walks of life and each one share their message with their market in a dignified relevant manner!

Get Online Basics has been paying attention to these mavericks and we want to share this list with you.

These bloggers were chosen by our fans on Facebook, folks we tweet with, and then there are those that we love ourselves. We had a checklist that we followed to determine is these bloggers were what we were seeking for the Best Probloggers of 2010.

Here are a few of the checkpoints we used to determine the bloggers a good fit for the Get Online Basics audience:

  • Relevant Engagement – Do they truly engage with their audience on their blog or via their chosen social media platforms?
  • Practical Information- Is the content on their blogs useful and applicable for growth?
  • Clutter Free Blog – Remember clutter is not your blog’s friend!
  • Consistency – Do they blog frequently? We weren’t seeking daily bloggers but rather a pattern of consistent output of content.
  • Connectivity – Is it easy to connect with the blogger? Or are they locked down like a Fort with no way in.
  • The Repeat Factor- Would a reader want to visit the blog again and again?
  • The Service Factor – Are they offering a service to their audience? Or are they just spiting out affiliate links looking to make a dollar?

It was our goal in pulling this list together that we made sure that we were bringing you some of the best for helping you not only build a great blog but a great online presence as well.  Enjoy learning more about these great ProBloggers, visit their blogs, and see why they have the JUICE!!!

In no particular order our list of the Best Probloggers for 2010 are…
