The concept of personal and community development is very old and it is considered one of the vital parts for exceling in any type of the field. Personal development and its concept means different to different people belonging to different fields and professions.
Personal development can be described in a single sentence and one can say that it is about firstly identifying the challenges, finding the solution and then integrating the answer or getting on the right course to achieve the desired result.
The experienced personals have documented the process of achievement and success by studying. If one flips through the pages of history then he or she will find that a number of individuals have tried to develop the concept of personal development. There are many online sites that provide their help and services in community and personal development. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. For the sake of this list, my choices for this section all revolve around books that are more about igniting passion and giving ideas rather than a step-by-step action plan. These books all DO have actionable steps to take, you will learn things, but I feel that their true purpose is as inspiration and motivation.

This is the fourth year that we have compiled the Top 100 personal development blogs and every year we see more and more blogs adding great value to people all around the world. I must say, because of all the awesome value that everyone is putting out there on the internet, it is getting harder and harder for personal development bloggers to make this list. Now, more than ever, is the perfect time to regain focus on what you truly want in life and ensure you have the strategies and support you need to be successful at it too.
Being a student of the personal development industry most of my life, I’m always on the lookout for the latest and greatest resources to not only implement into my own life but to also share with those around me.
The key to all this information is being able to pull what’s relevant for you and being able to apply that information in a systematic and successful way that will lead you towards your desired life. I feel honoured to know that over the last few years I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know a lot of the blog owners in this list and share some great experiences with them. It is somewhat tricky putting together a list of the Top 100 personal development blogs as it can be rather subjective in nature.
As with previous years, what I have created is a list of personal development blogs that rank from the most trafficked (largest number of visitors) down to the least trafficked. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that a larger site (a site ranked towards the top) does not necessarily indicate that the site is of better quality.
One thing to add, there have been numerous other top personal development blog lists throughout 2015. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
My recommendation to you is to browse through each of the blogs below at least once and then pick out the two or three blogs that really resonate with you. Be sure to subscribe to their content and make personal development a key focus for you this year.
Firstly, I have used the Alexa rank of the website as the primary ranking method. Alexa provides a relative ranking of each website based on the number of visitors it receives. Secondly, I have included Google Page Rank. Google Page Rank is one of the tools Google uses to determine a sites relative importance. People often question the validity of such tools, however, when comparing more generally the relative size of a website they are quite accurate and very useful indicators. Last year we introduced the concept of ‘magazine-styled’ or ‘multiple-authored’ personal development websites. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between multiple-authored websites versus personal blogs. As a result, this list now provides a reference to the best personal development websites (as opposed to pure blogs). If your blog is one of the Top 100, you have the honour of displaying the following badge on your site.

About Brendan BakerBrendan Baker is Australia's leading personal development blogger and and helps people build and grow online businesses based on their passions. Thanks for sharing this – always a great place to find new sources of motivation and inspiration! Utter the words personal development and some people will roll their eyes or conveniently scurry for cover in an obscure corner of the room. We could talk about the “nuts and bolts” of personal development such as goal setting, prioritising and discipline, which are all very important aspects of personal development and online business success, but I would like to focus on something that underlies the implementation of these aspects. This wonderful quote by motivational specialist Brian Tracy is a great phrase to remember and one that is central to you as a person and an entrepreneur.
Be positive and energetic and this will come through in you as a person and in your business. Just as your diet affects your physical health and energy, what your “feed” your mind has a direct impact on how you think and interact with people - and how effective you will be in business.

Deep down most of us probably think we could increase the “positive” quotient in our personality. Creating and maintaining self-esteem is about taking care of your mind - in the same way you must take care of your body. Business success is very much tied to our mindset, energy levels and how we feel about ourselves.
Claire, I find you blog a guide that should be available to every person, I'm concerned that if any individual doesn't practice your guidelines for all of their lives and is now only going to use them because they want to start a new business is in trouble.
Hi Claire,first of all in the say how much I enjoyed your quote from Brian Tracy, he is one of my favorites, and one of the most powerful motivational speakers and personal development guru's around. It is said by many that studying and applying philosophy is one of the best way to achieve professional and personal development.
But it can be said that personal development is nothing but focusing on different available methods to develop awareness, skills, attitude and abilities to get the desired result.
Personal development enables you to achieve the goal by making some effective changes in you or in the procedure which the company follows to deal with the situation and that too in different environment. Normally personal development is nothing but it is just cultivating progressive attitude in the person, learning or studying and applying success principles or formulas this can be in both in personal as well as company’s context.
They have documented process of success as science which can be applied by anyone and in field. In many of the books one can find the words such as moral character, virtues, ethics and many other which were used in place of personal development.
In reality every single book on this (now 175+ title) list is a great personal development book. This list includes, the grandfathers of all self help books, and it also has some of the modern masters of inspiration, education and self-empowerment. But please keep in mind that reporting images that are not abusive is against our terms of service and can get your account blocked.

It’s all about setting your year up for massive success and what better way of doing that then presenting you with the best personal development blogs for 2016. So if you have made the list of the Top 100 personal development blogs this year then I, and everyone else, give you HUGE congratulations!
Sylvia and I had a relatively quiet one with friends as we now have our 6 week old Emily with us. The turn of the New Year gives us a clear time to separate the past and move forward into the future. It’s the perfect time for creating new habits, setting your goals and making real change in your life.
Since I’ve been running my own business I’ve fallen more and more into the well of personal development and self-improvement and I absolutely love it!
But not only that, there are so many of you making an impact in this world through your personal development blogs I can certainly say that after sifting through each and every self-improvement blog, I’m highly impressed with everyone’s work! To avoid this, I’ve removed any of my own opinions or judgements and let pure metrics do the talking.
This list will provide you with a clear indication of how large a website is and its relative importance in the personal development blogosphere. Generally speaking, you will find that the larger sites have been around for longer and have more blog posts and content being crawled by Google. This is the fourth year our official list has been compiled and we continue to make it more comprehensive each year.
As we progress throughout the year we all face different challenges and often those challenges have already been faced by others elsewhere in the world. You will also find that you will resonate strongly with some blog owners and their content and perhaps less so with others. A rank of 100,000 would mean that the site is the 100,000th most visited site on the internet.
Other tools might indicate that a lower-ranked blog in our Top 100 is infact larger than a higher-ranked blog, but generally speaking, the Top 10 websites will always be larger than those ranked 10-20, and those ranked 10-20 will always be larger than those ranked 20-30 etc.

These are websites that originated as personal development blogs but have grown to a level where there are now multiple authors providing content on a regular basis. Many are clear cut, but more and more bloggers are accepting guest contributions making it somewhat difficult how to classify them. I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world.
This is the most comprehensive list of personal development blogs on the internet and I’m honoured to have you as part of this! I give you full permission to make this your best year ever and apply what you need to from these blogs into your life.
If you are REALLY serious about starting a home business online then taking time to look carefully at yourself - your  state of mind, goals, motivations and work habits – is actually pretty fundamental to how well you will succeed. It is about learning to be more effective, work smarter, be positive and motivated so you can accomplish your goals.
Track how well you are doing and maybe ask someone close to you for feedback on how you are doing. Achieving these goals helps boost self-esteem and positive feelings so that you will be more effective in everything else that you do. Personal development and its concept cover a wide area of activity and they can be applied to various businesses and to financial growth. One can also study about personal development by studying the experience of the others who have achieved their goals and have shown significant growth in business and on personal level also.
If you’re looking for someone is slightly unconventional and super successful, you’ll love his blog!
Whether you need a product developer, manufacturer, writer, designer and so forth – you will find it here, and often times for a great deal!

With the internet now a common place for everyone and the ‘free economy’ being born, it’s amazing to know that what was once hidden from the majority of people and limited to a select few people paying $5,000 to access information at a weekend seminar, this information is now mostly widely available for free on the internet or at least at a much more affordable price. Keep in mind, even though the blogs towards the bottom are the ‘least trafficked’, they are still within the Top 100 out of hundreds and thousands of personal development blogs out there on the internet (if not more!). For this reason, there is a wide variety of blogs on the list; including business, career and work, happiness, health, productivity and more. With the millions and millions of websites on the internet, such a ranking is classified as pretty good! To sum it up, the larger and more trafficked sites will always tend to be ranked higher regardless of the tool being used. This means that you can search for your favourite blog to see where it is ranked and sort by any column, such as page rank or alphabetical order. I’d love to hear your thoughts so we can continue to provide the best resource available! Think positive thoughts and you will come across as a positive, motivated and energetic person, and this will show through in your business. Work out how you can “Be The Best Version Of You” and you’ll find that you can be more effective, motivated and successful online. I wouldn't mind composing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write related to here. Looking for a mentor or team of people with like standards could really improve their success.

This show will provide practical advice and common sense tips to help you along your journey. In saying that, however, the top sites have lasted the test of time and continue to have strong readership so they must be doing something right!
The Top 100 Personal Development Blogs are not ranked by Google Page Rank, however I have included the PageRank of each blog for you to utilise if you wish (you can filter by this). I have two of his books – and they are all packed with hundreds and hundreds of resources.
