      WOW! I am shocked and humbled to be listed with the likes of those you put me with! Thank you so much for the kind words (and yes I am a serial entrepreneur!)It is a true honor to be listed next to names like Darren, Brian and Daniel!

      I only discovered your site a couple of months ago, and have enjoyed reading and commenting here.

      Two you listed I don’t read (yet) are Weblog Tools and Blogic Think, headed off to check them out now.

      Thanks again Matthew, and your site is one I consider an authority on the topics I read here!

      Thanks for the list. I had 50% in my RSS feed already. I’ll add the three missing blogs to my feed reader and see how it goes. By the way you forgot to mention Blogtrepreneur!

      Three other blogs I enjoy following are Entrepreneurs-Journey, Quick Sprout, and the Smart Passive Income Blog.

      Hey ! Thanks for listing my blog here. I have already subscribed to all of them and I love reading DailyBlogTips and CopyBlogger.

      Thanks for the shoutout Matthew!

      I’ve never heard of BlogicThink so thanks for that one. I have a huge guest post coming up at Daily Blog Tips in march which I think you will like. It’s about article marketing and how it’s not dead yet.

      I’m trying to think of a blog that I can add to this list but I’m drawing blanks, so I’ll just leave it there.

      I don’t really go to all of the big named bloggers, I find just as much useful information just surfing the net. There are a lot of good ideas floating around and I don’t want to miss them because i am following the herd.
