Top 20 Female Bloggers in South Africa

Given blogging is such a big deal at the moment, I couldn’t resist putting together this blog post on the Top 20 Female Bloggers in South Africa (other than myself of course :P). These women are very well known in the blogging community and given their popularity, I’m sure we can all learn a thing or 2 about these lovely ladies!

I’ve included links to their Twitter profiles and websites to help you get to know them a little better AND I have included what blogging platform they are using in case you are thinking of starting your own blog and are still deciding what to run it on.
