Four Personal Development Bloggers I'm Watching in 2010

Life can be stressful and lonely as we rush from place to place and task to task. During periods of downtime due to ill health I learned that connecting with people who inspire me via the internet was helpful when I couldn't get out and connect face to face.

As I worked on my own recovery I took to blogging to share what I've learned through my own studies and experiences. My desire with Living by Design was to reach out to anyone struggling with anxiety or adversity and encourage them to remember that in every moment we have the chance to choose how and who we want to be.

Inspired by Probloggers recent invite to "Create Your Own Bloggers to Watch List" here's my quick review of some of my favourite bloggers that I recommend looking out for in 2010...


Carole Fogarty - Rejuvenation Lounge 

Carole's posts are highly informative and easily digestible - perfect for busy internet readers looking for great advice on self care. Any mother of three who can write with such ease and enthusiasm gets my vote.


Some of my favourite posts of last year from Carole:

Dani - Positively Present

Dan's already been recommended on Serene Journey's list, but she has to be on mine too purely because Dani is such a bloody good writer. Prolific and free, I watched her stroll into the blogosphere in 2009 and establish herself with her regular thought provoking posts. I'll definitely continue reading in 2010.


Some of my favourite posts of last year from Dani:

Monica Bloom - HeyMonicaB  

Monica's tag line is "a blooming resource on Ayurveda" and that's exactly what she offers. Sassy, informative writing on the ancient art of self care with lovely text illustrations for many of her posts. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn about Ayurveda and pick up some great tips.

Some of my favourite posts of last year from Monica:

Shann VanderLeek - True Balance Life Coaching

Can you write from the hip and the heart? Shann can. Lively, audacious and groovacious, this is a blogger I've watched throughout 2009 with interest. In September this year I ran a project idea by some blogger friends and Shann picked it up with such open minded enthusiasm that we teamed up and launched AnxietySlayer

Some of my favourite posts of last year from Shann:
