Essential blogs for your feed reader

Blogs - headline

Thought we’d share some link-love today by recommending some blogs for your feed reader (and if you’re not using a feed reader to keep up with new articles, why not try out Google Reader?)

These don’t particularly follow one theme, but they’re all blogs that I look forward to reading each day… and you might too.

  1. DVICE – Part of the Sci-Fi Network, DVICE brings you hot tech news from around the globe. No, wait, it’s not as dull as it sounds… they cover the cool tech :) If you’re interested in gadgets, new technology or, yes, sci-fi, this is a blog well worth checking out.
    Their “about us” blurb says this: Technology is our obsession. Whether it’s the next hot music player or a new Mars lander, we want to know about it, write about it, and shake it till it breaks. It’s all in the spirit of bringing you the wildest and most interesting stories — just minus the tech jargon and throwing in a reality check.
  2. Lifehacker – “Tips and tools for getting things done”. Their tagline pretty much sums it up, really: whether it’s about repurposing a cabinet as a charging station, tips for maintaining your night vision, software reviews or geeky news, Lifehacker probably covers it.
  3. Escape Adulthood – Kim and Jason Kotecki are on a mission to help adults lighten up… curing them of what they call “adultitis”. If you feel like your days can be heavy (and who doesn’t, from time to time) then Escape Adulthood can give you plenty of ideas to recapture the childlike joy you may have left behind. Go on, have a read… you might actually enjoy yourself!
  4. Blah, Blah! Technology – Wayne Smallman delivers speculation on future tech, and opinion on current tech in his excellent blog. He has an uncanny knack of getting things right, which makes some of his more speculative pieces all the more intriguing. Check it out, and see if he clicks with you.
  5. Problogger – Australian blogger Darren Rowse shares tips and techniques to make you a better blogger. Whether you’re aiming to become a “professional” blogger or do it for the pure fun, there are handy tips here every day and a great community of commenters to learn from.

OK, so these are just a few of the blogs that I have in my feed reader, but they definitely constitute the ones that I couldn’t do without. How about you, though? What are you reading? If you think others would enjoy it, post a link in the comments.

Go on… share the link love ;)

  1. Thanks for the link, Chris! Makes me feel pretty cool to be considered “essential.” I totally love Problogger and Lifehacker, too.
