Top 50 Bloggers To Follow In 2014 And My 2013 Blogging Recap

Share This Article

It is the time of the year again and 2013 is coming to an end. Basically, hours left to celebrate the new and upcoming year 2014.

As a recap, I started this blog back in May 2013 and it was great. Honestly, great could possible an understatement.

I was basically known for my crazy case studies, controversial comparisons and super long blog posts.

As for the record, I do get tons of email from corporate companies complaining about my blog post as I did no-BS reviews on them. Some even offered me to re-review their product with test runs etc. Thank you for that.

I believe I was also known for my absent-minded when it comes to blog designs. Within 6 months, I changed my blog theme nearly a dozen time and thank you to all of you to have taken the effort to bear with me. Yes, put the blame on Genesis Framework :)

Along the way, I was lucky to make some of my posts went (some sort) viral and I really appreciate that. Some of my favorite posts are:

In terms of affiliate marketing, I consider myself extremely lucky. I managed to tweak certain parts of affiliate marketing strategies and landed myself constant affiliate earnings of at least $500 per month. Pretty sweet for a decent blog.

Also, my paid services such as SEO and social media are also moving to third gear and funding me a decent amount of income too. Read more about it here.

Of course, the downside is that I am spending around 18 hours in front of the computer or laptop. Even my optician had advised me to reduce the usage of computer and these technological stuffs or I am asking for trouble.

Yeah right! <- Okay, I am just a hard headed dude.

What to expect from Reginald in 2014?

I had said this in my previous newsletter; it will be explosive. Many plans are already on the way and I am already forecasting a super busy and hectic time.

Just to keep you in the loop, here are a few of the upcoming projects:

  • More contests
  • Membership site
  • Redesigning my website (for real)
  • Free blogging courses

Of course, these are just the icing of the cake. If you want to know more, you can sign up for my newsletter below to get notified as soon as the projects are up and running.


In 2014, I would be publishing around two articles per week as I am running my own SEO and social media services. Nonetheless, you guys are still important for me and I will do my best to share all those juicy bits of SEO and influence marketing here.

Also, I am starting up a secondary website (which I will not disclose yet) thanks to the overwhelmed requests from some of loyal my readers. It is going to be epic and mind blowing. Period!

Being said that, I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2014 and may you be blessed with success in everything that you do.

You have been great and thank you for being apart of my lovely journey in 2013.

    Hi Reginald!

    I am very grateful that you have included me to your list. Although we are fairly new friends, I am following your blog and have learned so much from you. I thank you for that my friend.

    I am looking forward to your membership site and all the other goodies you are going to roll out in 2014! If I were to name this year it would be the year of “expansion!”

    Happy New Year!

    Thank you so very much for including me with those other super fabulous bloggers. I’m truly honored! Happy New Year my friend!

    Btw, love the selfie! ;)

    Thanks so much for mentioning me in the post, it has been a pleasure connecting with you in 2013 and hope to continue the relationship in 2014.

    Hi Reginald,

    What a pleasant surprise! Wow, I feel so honored. :)

    You are like a friend whom I’ve known for a long time. You are extremely talented. Congrats on the $500/month affiliate marketing earning. You have taught me a lot specially on the SEO. You are a great influencer.

    Influencers doesn’t necessarily mean you earn 6-figures a year. But I heard that when you are a blogger, you ARE an influencer. And to me you have influenced me so much.

    I wish you a Prosperous New Year my dear friend.

    Hi Reginald.

    Many congratulations on such a successful year, and thank you so much for including me in this list – I feel very honoured to get a mention.

    Your success is well deserved – you obviously work extremely hard (and smart, too!) Your earnings from affiliate sales are very impressive.

    Do look after your health, though – if you’re in this for the long haul, your body will start to feel the strain as you get older – believe me, as someone who now suffers from chronic neck and shoulder problems, it’s really important to take care of yourself!

    Thanks again, Reginald, and I wish you even greater happiness and success in 2014 – Way to go!!

      You are .. marvelous. I look up to you nearly all the time. I still remember the first time reading your blog. I was like “hey, she can really write!”.

      For me, my success this year is all about .. you guys. Knowing you guys makes everything look so worth it and I have to thank you for that.

      Morally and mentally, thank you for being my friend!

      Looking forward for a better and much explosive 2014!

    Great post! I only just found your blog a couple of days ago through google+ and loving the content I’ve read already. I can see you will go a long way as your posts are so interesting and fun to read. One thing I need to learn is to breath some more personality into my blog posts instead of them just being informative. Thanks for sharing!

    • says

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for dropping by! Hope you liked my humble blog.

      Well, what makes a great blogger is personality (at least, for me). As much as this is a competitive world, I have huge respect for those who help around. For example, majority of the list up there are willing to lend me a hand when I am asking for something.

      Okay, I know I am kinda a pain in the a*s but yeah, I think putting others first instead of ourselves make them great. And you don’t need to have 10,000 traffic a day. All you need is passion and positive mindset.

      Make sense? I know I am weird :D

    Hey Reginald,

    Well you know I’ve very late in getting by here but thanks for including me in this list. I so appreciate that and the recap on how your year has been. For someone who only started his blog half way through the year that’s very impressive I might add. See, this is what a little hard work will get you.

    I have no doubt you’ll continue to provide us with more awesome information as this year progresses. I know for me I definitely look forward to it.

    Thanks again Reginald and for taking into consideration what I emailed you about earlier this week.

    Happy New Year!
