Very cool post & definitely is inspiring to me at the moment.
I am interested in what the criteria for this list was. I thought for sure social media examiner would have made it.
I would love to see this updated. I may try to do it myself. I know RayHigdon.com makes over 3k per day.
Wow I think you have become my new hero. Every time I open twitter, I see a post from you and I wondered how you do it. I am a new Blogger, I launched in April this year and since, I have been learning about social media. One thing you have taught me is that regular posting keeps you on top.
Thank you so much, I think you Rock

Hi Nancy, Great list! Thanks for posting this. I am curious though how you got your data? Also, I am surprised Lisa Irby was not on your list. I’ve been following her since January. have you heard of her?
Thanks Nancy! I’d love to see 50 sites that make a difference in the world. Please come up with a list of sites that inspire people to do better and be better. Thanks!
Thanks so much for the feedback! I will try to see how I could incorporate that into my niche.
