Mohsin Naqi

Mohsin’s blog, Blogging Bips, covers “blog writing, marketing, and design.” He’s a fairly prolific twitterer, though he tends to spend more time replying than posting about himself. If you’re looking for some conversation on Twitter, you’ve found the right person. Follow MohsinN.

Michael Martin

Michael was the first person I ever followed on Twitter, if my memory is correct. He blogs over at Pro Blog Design, and is what you could call a design expert, and it wouldn’t be much of a stretch. His blog’s well worth a read, if you haven’t already been there. Follow problogdesign.

Daniel Scocco

Daily Blog Tips, mainly written by Daniel, is true to it’s name. Every day, guaranteed, you’ll get a new informative post on blogging. Mr. Scocco is very knowledgeable about blogging and writing, and manages several blogs of a similar style to Daily Blog Tips, such as the aptly named Daily Writing Tips. Follow danielscocco.

Collis Ta’eed

Collis has one of the most inspirational success stories on the internet, in my opinion. He and Cyan Ta’eed used to be freelancers, until they started the website FlashDen, a highly profitable Flash asset marketplace From there they founded the company now called Envato, which is a network of websites by the Ta’eeds, as well as a maker of “creative communities” for those who have the money to have one built. I first heard about Collis when I found his blog North X East, which he eventually sold to another blogger. Collis is a talented designer and entrepreneur who blogs on several of Envato’s properties. Follow collis.

Lorelle VanFossen

Lorelle is one of the few lucky bloggers to have a wordpress.com subdomain that’s just her first name. Lorelle blogs about blogging over at lorelle.wordpress.com. Follow lorelleonwp.

Matt Harzewski

Me! I’m a blogger, I use Twitter. I tweet frequently as I wander around the internet, reading my RSS feeds, skulking around Digg and Reddit, and blogging of course. Follow redwall_hp.

That’s all for now, everyone. Be sure to leave a comment if there’s an interesting blogger you follow who you think we all ought to know about.

    These are worth following too: Robert Scoble (Scobleizer), John C. Dvorak (THErealDVORAK), Leo Laporte (leolaporte

  • http://marketingtechblog.com Douglas Karr

    Bummer!  I didn’t make the list.

  • http://lorelle.wordpress.com/ Lorelle

    Actually, Douglas would be better than me on this list. :D Thanks for the inclusion. I’m more a lurker than chatter, but I’ll do my best to live up to your expectations.Thanks!

  • http://www.webmaster-source.com Matt

    Keep up the suggestions. In a week or so I’ll amend the post and add a “bonus reader-submitted” section. (And I’ll probably put you in there Douglas.)

  • http://www.garanew.com Gossip

    Ha, you should put urself into the above list, :-) and I will sure follow you!

  • http://www.techzilo.com Sumesh

    Well, I am humbled by the inclusion in this list – which includes Darren, Collis, Maki, Skellie, Adii, Mohsin, Daniel, Michael and you Matt, of course, all of whom I admire :)

    You have not included some info, like Skellie is the editor of FSw, and may not really be “she”. ;)PS: Your comment form is acting weird (some characters are not appearing), I am on Firefox 3 on Windows. And why is subscribe to comments checkbox appearing under the footer separator (a line).

    PPS: Though you mentioned TechZilo, I would have loved to have a link from you to my blogging-related (hence more relevant to WS audience) BlogCreativity.com. It is non-commercial and I write my heart out, tell me if you like it :)

    As for my suggestions: Scoble, Arrington, Brian Clarke, Gina Trapani, Chris Pearson, Jon Snook, Eric Meyer, Veerle Pieters, Mike Castilla (last five are designers, hence more relevant for WS readers).

    Come to think of it, that is quite a list, I will write one of my own on TechZilo. Expect a trackback to this post soon…

  • http://www.webmaster-source.com Matt

    @Sumesh, I’ll add the link to the post along with all the other changes, once the comments quiet down a little bit, and once I get around to making the other changes.

    I wasn’t entirely aware of the comment form issues (I’m on FF3 too). I haven’t noticed any character issues, and I don’t normally see the subscribe to comments checkbox since I’m normally logged-in to WordPress, and it doesn’t show for admins. I’ll look into it though.
