We’re all influenced by someone or several someones, whether it’s a teacher from your past or a colleague you’ve just started working with. Personally, I’ve been influenced by our fearless leader here at Type-A, Kelby Carr, my daughters who push me daily to be a better person, and grandfather, Gilbert Louden, who never let me settle for good enough. I love to read about how people have touched each others lives, that’s why I was so intrigued by BlogFrog’s latest campaign introducing the Blog Frog Influencer’s circle. Just this week, Kelby shared who her top influencers are in the blogging community and included three very lovely and successful women who don’t apologize for who they are. Emily, from Colorado Moms, wrote a beautiful post on the women who have influenced her career coming off the heels of BlogHer where you’re constantly surrounded by influential and inspiring women. Amy of GreebleMonkey also shared her influencer choices, all of which are entertaining, engaging, and full of witty reparte.
