Recommended blogs

Here are the blogs that I’m reading at the moment. I’m not going to call it my Top 10 (not least because there are 13 on the list right now) because the selection isn’t about excellence or enjoyment or, for that matter, an endorsement of the content. I’ve chosen them more as a representative cross section from the sectors most represented by delegates who attend our blogging workshops.

It’s a dynamic list in that I add links when I stumble across something interesting or instructive and tend to remove others that I find myself reading less often. This helps keep the list to a manageable size. There’s really no point trying to follow 20 or more blogs simultaneously because there’s then no time to write your own posts! And by all means send me your suggestions in the comments or by email.

I recommend you start your own rolling list based on your sector (if it’s a work blog) or personal interests (if it’s a personal blog).

Happy reading!
