    Thanks so much Donna!

    It’s an honor to be placed among other wonderful personal development blogs, more so to be mentioned on your blog. 🙂

    I guess I just love sharing my experiences and exchanging views of other people over at my blog, which could be related to various niches, just as you mentioned.

    While I do know Sylviane and Marty and their lovely blogs, I do need to check out the others, which I shall soon after commenting here. So, thanks for introducing some more fellow bloggers here.

    And of course, thanks once again for the mention – much appreciated. 🙂 Happy Valentine’s well in advance too. 🙂

      Hi Sylviane!

      I was compelled to do this blog as a shout out for other readers to see. I love self development as you know.

      My main mission is to see people grow. This is why I mentioned others,because there are so many ways to grow and each person I mentioned has different ways to show them how.

      Hi Michael,

      These are but a few great bloggers in this niche that I work closely with. There are so much more, but I didn’t want to make it an overkill blog post.

      When one is writing about personal development, I think it is important to offer readers several different modalities to resonate with. These kind folks above are helpers in many different ways than I.

      I sincerely believe that when we are in this niche, we do have the responsibility to SHARE with others so our readers can be the best they can be.

      Thanks for stopping by,

    Wow, I know they appreciate it as well because I see they’ve stopped by and commented. I appreciate you introducing us to some other great bloggers.

      Hi Adrienne!

      I’m sure you will enjoy my other Self Development Bloggers. Too bad I cut it down to five.

      In the future I will like to bring on another five of them because we all learn differently and respond to different things when on our learning journey.

    Hi Donna

    What a great idea for a post. Given my world has been about Personal Development for so long it is good to be introduced to a couple of blogs I have not visited before.

    It is interesting that the 5 blogs have different themes. There are so many different aspects to personal development. I love it!

    Thanks Donna.

      I knew you would like this one! Yes, they each have different themes that is why I narrowed it down to these five on this post.

      People respond to different things, so hopefully whoever comes by can be sparked to grow just a little bit more!

    One of the best parts of the internet is being able to connect with people I otherwise would never have met. I enjoy reading the blogs of four of the people you have listed here. And the other, I just haven’t read yet, but now I can.

    The fact that you are recommending them puts them right at the top of the list of people to pay attention to. Thank you for creating this list, and for sharing some cool stuff and good people around the internet.

      I have learned this method a long time ago Barbara.

      This has been the backbone of my off line business. When I had my Psychic Shop Mind over Matter, there were always too many people for me to handle, so I set up a referral system of people in the local area for them to see if they were visiting for the day.

      These people were shocked because their mindset was that I was giving up business. But what happened was I earned their trust and respect for being a person looking out for their good.

      Hey this is what business is all about.
