Blog Chicks is a community for like-minded female bloggers to share their experiences and discuss topics relevant to them.

Blog Chicks was created in 2007 by Leigh when she assembled the first version of the Australian Women Bloggers directory, showcasing the amazing and talented range of female bloggers we have in Australia. From parenting to business, lifestyle to history; you’re bound to find a blog you’ll love reading.

The directory has now grown to over 4000 bloggers.

Regular meetups, webinars and our Facebook group provide opportunities for the Australian women blogger community to connect and share their experiences.

Blog Chicks runs under a strict no-bullshit policy.  There is zero tolerance for negativity, gossip or toxic energy in our groups or at meetups. The group is supportive, encouraging and a safe place for new and old bloggers alike.

Blog Chicks is a hobby only, and there is no intent to create a profit through the community. Any monies earned through advertising or affiliate links are used to offset the costs of maintaining the community.

Leigh maintains the website and directory. She has been blogging and moderating communities in various forms since 2003. She now makes a living from her passion, which offsets her evenings spent Blog Chicks’ing and looking at cat gifs.

You can find her personal blog at absoluteLeigh.


Rah has been blogging since 2005. She has a particular affection for cats, cupcakes and Barack Obama.

Rah is the outgoing personality in our team – you’ll know when she’s in a room because she involves everyone and loves a laugh. Without her, we probably wouldn’t leave the warm glow of our computer screens!

Her personal writings can be found at Rahest, and more professional side can be seen at Smarter Admins.
