Updated February, 2018 to reflect updates to the various blogs mentioned. Enjoy!
I read a lot of blogs.
I probably have 50 or so in my RSS reader right now. When I decided to make this blog post I thought it would be a bad idea to list every single blog that I follow. Needless to say, I had a really hard time narrowing it down to my top 7 blogs that will make you rich.
However, I finally managed to narrow it down. These bloggers are in order for me. I recommend checking them out in the order listed and take note of what each one's strengths are so you can come back to them whenever you're struggling in certain areas. These are the bloggers that can proudly proclaim “I Will Make You Rich.”
Out of all of the blogs that I read, I think Pat's is my absolute favorite. The thing that I love most about Pat's blog is that he is so genuine and transparent. If he does something that works really well for him, he tells you about it. If he does something fails miserably for him, he'll tell you about that too. His life is pretty much an open book.
How Pat can make you rich
The title of Pat's blog pretty much says it all. He teaches various passive income streams. His favorite passive income streams seem to fall straight in line with my favorite passive income streams. He is very much in to niche blogging and affiliate marketing, which happens to be what I love and what I teach…
Make sure you check out Pat's monthly income reports. In these reports, Pat breaks down every single thing that generated an income for him in the previous month with lessons to take away from his triumphs and failures from that month.
If Pat is my favorite blog to read each month, Michael is definitely an extremely close second. I think the thing that I like most about Michael is how blunt he can be. He has no problem calling out people who he thinks are doing things wrong and praising the people doing things the right way. He's also one of those guys who won't hold back. If he learns of a strategy that works for him, he has no problem sharing it with his readers. That's what a blog should be about… No holding anything back or only giving you bits and pieces of something. Michael shares it all.

Income Diary has so much going for it. Michael teaches strategies on how to have a more effective blog (much of Business & Blogs was inspired by tips that Michael gave). Michael also teaches blog monetization techniques and traffic techniques. If you're interested building a more effective and efficient blog, look no further than IncomeDiary.com
ProBlogger was one of the first blogs that I ever read. Before I even knew what WordPress was, I was introduced to Darren's blog. It was the first site that I ever came across that made the idea of creating an income from blogging actually possible in my mind. I didn't know that it was possible and discovering ProBlogger.net flipped that switch in my head.
How Darren can make you rich
If you've ever dreamt of making a full time living from blogging, you need to have Darren's blog in your RSS feed reader. There are new tips and tricks posted every single day that will improve your blog. You will learn monetization techniques, traffic techniques, search engine optimization, social networking, ideas for creating content, how to overcome writer's block, and so much more. It's basically become an encyclopedia for everything blogging.
Andrew's site is awesome! Andrew committed himself to doing one interview per day, every day… and he's managed to keep up with it for nearly two years! All of the interviews that he's done have been compiled in to an, easy to navigate, video blog over at Mixergy.com. He's landed some pretty amazing interviews too! Gary Vaynerchuk, Seth Godin, Matt Mullenweg, Tim Ferriss, Darren Rowse, and so much more.
The thing that makes Andrew's site stand out above the rest is his willingness to dig deeper with the people he's interviewing and ask the tough questions that most interviewers wouldn't ask. He doesn't take affiliate commissions for any products by any of the people he interviews so you know that there are never any ulterior motives to his questions.
How Andrew can make you rich
Andrew has interviewed some of the top minds in business and marketing. He has dug deep and asked the questions that really get people describing exactly how they have achieved the success that they've achieved. Some of his interviews you can actually pull step-by-step business processes out of and implement them in your own business. Andrew only interviews the best and the brightest. If you can't learn from them, you may be headed in the wrong direction with your business…
Copyblogger is one of the most popular marketing blogs on the internet. The focus of Copyblogger is mostly copywriting and beefing up your writing skills. Want to write better blog posts, learn how to create a sales letter that converts, or write emails that get peoples attention? Copyblogger is a damn good place to start!
Copyblogger has been around for quite a while now. This means that it's another one of those “encyclopedia” type blogs. I constantly refer to this site when I need to write a sales letter or have writer's block trying to write an email. I pretty much always find what I'm looking for.
How Brian can make you rich
I've always said that if there are any two skills that you can learn to be successful, they would be search engine optimization and copywriting. SEO gets you the traffic and copywriting gets you the sales. Studying the heck out of Copyblogger will definitely help you improve your skills in the first half of that equation. Learn to persuade people with your writing and you can sell anything you want… Need I say more?
Justin Brooke is someone that I actually discovered quite a while ago. Back when I was studying website and blog flipping (something I still do from time to time). At the time, he was pretty much the top dog in the site-flip niche. To be honest, I'm not quite sure where he stands anymore in the site flipping arena anymore. I haven't studied that model in a while because I feel that I've developed a system that works well (more on that later).
What I do know is that Justin's blog at AdSkills.com has some of the most forward-thinking traffic strategies I've ever seen. With each new post I'm amazed at the strategies that he's discussing. As soon as I think I've got all the traffic strategies nailed down, Justin introduces me to something new.
How Justin can make you rich
It's been said many times… If you've got traffic, you can make money. Well there are very few people that understand traffic like Justin. I guarantee that a quick flip through his site will land you some new traffic strategies that you've never even comprehended before. Get your monetized blog up and running and then soak up all the tactics Justin teaches and you'll be well on your way.
Ramit's blog at IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com was the first blog that I ever started reading. Back when I was a finance major in college, I loved learning Ramit's personal financial management tips. He teaches you about saving, investing, managing debt, credit card tricks, and various other “money hacks”. He is the guy that you learn from when you want to figure out how to keep more of the money that you make as well as grow it through smart-investing and strategic use of credit cards and debt.
He's moved in to teaching a bit about blogging and creating online products now as well but his core niche is managing personal finance. He even wrote a New York Times bestseller entitled “I Will Teach You To Be Rich”.
How Ramit can make you rich
Well Ramit's blog is called I Will Teach You To Be Rich… So right there you know you're on a blog that's pointing you in the right direction.
So many marketers make decent money and then blow it on extravagant cars or toys that they have no need for. Personally, I like to figure out new ways to make my money work for me. I like to save, invest, and make my money work for me. Ramit will point you in the right direction for this sort of thing.
And don't forget about us… 🙂 Everything we write, we write to try to help people grow their business and make more money from their business.
