Top Tech Blogs To Follow
So you want to keep abreast of the latest tech, but you can’t be bothered to watch the news, flip through some janky magazine or follow every tech influencer on Twitter. No worries!
We’ve put together a list of the best tech blogs going. Have a scroll, pick a couple you like the look of, bookmark those babies and just check in when you need your fix.
Over 28 million social media followers and in excess of 7.5million shares a month? Mashable clearly have something to say and the gen-pop want to hear it! Search by region, field, medium – videos, articles, interviews – they’ve got it all. Including, more Webby awards than I could be bothered to read through. If you’re looking for digestible content and tech insider knowledge, look no further.
You’ve heard of Wired, right? How can you not have? Currently at the helm is ex-NewYorker.com editor, Nicholas Thompson – so we know they’ve got some kudos (and nearly 3 million Facebook followers to boot). Their homepage is littered with big names, and not just techies. Mila Kunis, Justin Theroux, Nina Dobrev, Eva Longoria and Liza Koshy grace their articles, to name but a few. Wired are making nerdiness cool again – and we’re here for it.
Whilst not technically a tech blog, Business Insider gets the scoop. Their ‘tech’ section alone boasts 2.7m Facebook followers and 17.2k on Twitter (@BIUK_Tech). From product reviews to investment news, ’10 things you need to know’ to international break-throughs – BI keeps it real. Founded in 2007 by former Wall Street-er, Henry Blodget, the site is now the largest business news site on the enter web.
As soon as you land on TechCrunch’s site, you know it’s going to be tech heaven. Simplistic styling and bold headlines make it easy to navigate to the kind of content you like. Their navigation even splits into start-ups, apps, gadget, events and videos – making the user interface that much more personalised. Even better, you can actually meet the crunchers behind the site, at Disrupt – their very own technology conference event with top-dollar speakers and unveilings.
Not just a great blog, but a great podcast too! Recode have cracked the ‘appealing to all bases’ algorithm. They are also incredibly writer-focused, giving plenty of site space to their team and keeping by-lines in another colour. They also host CodeCommerce, a convention in New York. So, you can catch them online, on social, on their podcast and in person. We like you, Recode Team.
What started as a blog about (you guessed it) gizmos and gadgets, is now an international hub for ‘architecture you’d trade your Wi-Fi connection for; spaceships that soar to new and unexplored solar systems; futuristic automobiles and oceanic vessels…; military innovation and eyebrow-raising government farces’.
There are sites for countries all over the world, with specific news on tech in that area. I really love the ‘WTF’ page that features weird and whacky stories with bizarre headlines and the odd curse word.
Founded in 2004, Engadget is a longstanding and exhaustive supply of tech news. Their niche? Gaming. Releases, reviews and recommendations, it’s all there – with new articles being on posted every 4 hours (on average). Engadget have also utilised YouTube more substantially that any other blog in this list. Their ‘hands-on’ reviews are slick, clever and plentiful – what’s not to love?

Ooops, how did that get in there? Ok, we’re not up there with Mashable and the like, but our #tech blog is growing too!
