How to Find Blogs You'll Enjoy

Finding blogs to read just got a whole lot easier

It can be hard to find blogs to read among all the other content on the web. Between social media and other sites, blogs are hidden within tons of other content.

Blogs are all about personal, customized content, on nearly any subject you can possibly think of, from knitting to skiing or learning how to barbeque. If you're not sure what blog to follow, maybe you'll stumble on one about technology, crafts, parenting, fitness, sports, entrepreneurship, etc.

Whether it's a personal blog you're looking for or a professional one offered by a business, below are the best ways to find blogs that interest you.

Use a Blog Finder

Best of the Web Blog Directory

Some of the best blog sites have been curated by other people. They've taken the time to find online blogs and put them into a list that's easy for anyone to look through.

A web directory meant just for blogs is one way to find new blogs to read, but we also have some handmade lists of the best news blogs, digital camera blogs, and political blogs.

Find Blogs From a Blogging Platform

Blogspot search on Google

A blogging platform is what a blogger uses to publish their content. Depending on the site, you might be able to search for other blogs on that platform to find something new to read.

For example, free blogs created at Blogger use blogspot.com within the URL. You can run a web search for that using Google's inurl command to find all the sites that are hosted for free on Blogger's website.

Tumblr is another blogging platform, and finding blogs to read there is even easier. Use the search bar at the top of the site to see what you can find with a keyword or two, or browse the Trending page on Tumblr. We also have a list of some of the weirdest Tumblr blogs to check out.

View a Blog's Blogroll

Blogrolls are collections of links placed on a blog that the writer enjoys and wants to recommend to you. If you have a favorite website that's updated regularly by someone you follow, then chances are they have a list of blogs that they recommend to their readers.

This is a great way to find blogs to read that are most likely related to the one you already like, and best of all, they're recommended by someone you already trust.

Find a Blog on the Website

Lots of websites have an area of the site that's dedicated solely to the company's or person's blog. An easy way to find a blog on a website you already visit is to look for a mention of the blog on the home page or somewhere in the menu.

If that doesn't work, you can find the blog with a search engine; just enter the company or person's name followed by the word blog. Some sites put their blog at the end of the domain name, such as example.com/blog.

A simple web search for Google's official blog shows that you can find it at blog.google.

A blog is sometimes wrapped up in a part of the site called the newsroom, but it usually functions in much the same way as a blog. For example, the Facebook Newsroom is Facebook's blog.
