I have been a fan of blogs for a long time, I have started a few and stopped writing a few. This time when I started a blog I wanted to continue. I really want to stick at it and keep it going, so I have been looking for inspiration, help and guidance to see what makes a good blog and to keep blogging.
I have came across a wealth of people inspiring bloggers in different ways and to help you with your blog, from getting it started to keeping it going. Here are my top 8 helpful books etc that have inspired me, helped me plan and now, commit to blogging.

This book is a really good place to start, Natasha informs you all about blogging with great interviews with seasoned bloggers from all different types of businesses. Some great tips on how to make money from of your blog too.
2. Girl Code – Book by Cara Alwill Leyba

3.Career Girl Daily – Website and book – Ultimate Blog Plan
I came across CGD via Blog Lovin and loved some of their posts, I then registered for their newsletter. I have attended the Career girl masterclass which was a brilliant way to spend a Sunday and not only spend time with a room full of dedicated women, but also listen to them too. CGD’s Ultimate Blog plan really makes you think about all areas of your blog or business and set it out on paper.
4. She Means Business – Audio Book by Carrie Green
I have read Carrie’s book and listened to the Audio book and although they may both be the same thing to you, listening to Carrie’s bubbly personality really made me want to get out there and do the things she suggests. I have already started my “Dreams” Jar.
