It shouldn’t be any surprise that the tech world embraced the blogosphere far before every newspaper in the country started making their writers blog alongside their standard news stories. As a result, there are blogs that are so great, so informative, so current — you’d be lost in your tech career without them. Here’s some we monitor daily. Add them to your bookmarks!

Mashable

If you haven’t heard of “The Social Media Guide,” you just might be living under an old Commodore 64. Updated constantly, and nearly always entertaining, Mashable takes the worlds of Twitter, Facebook, entertainment, news, and everything else techies are talking about and, well, mashes it up into the kind of blog casserole we just can’t get enough of.

Gizmodo

Pretty much known as the TMZ of tech after they paid for a “lost” next-gen Apple iPhone — the fallout became front-page news across the world. Scandals aside, Gizmodo’s been a must-follow site for a long time, with tons of relevant posts, a youthful vibe, and some of the funnier commenters on the Internet.

Gigaom

If you’re looking for what’s next, look no further. Om Malik’s creation has grown into one of the largest blogs worldwide, and it’s all due to focusing on what’s new. News and analysis on Web 2.0, technologies and startups, social media, gaming — you name it, GigaOM has it covered. That’s what happens when you have a team of 12 technology-obsessed writers (six of which have authored over 100 posts each).

ZDNet

Founded in 1991, formerly on CompuServe and Prodigy, ZDNet was purchased in 2000 by CNET (CBS Interactive), and reports on a variety of tech news. While they focus heavily on the usual suspects (Apple, Microsoft, Google), ZDNet also features product reviews, software downloads and tons of news and analysis on tech businesses and issues.

TechCrunch

Younger than ZDNet but no less influential in the world of Web 2.0 and tech startup news, TechCrunch is big. How big? Try No. 2 on Technorati. And TechCrunch isn’t just the second-biggest tech blog, it’s the No. 2 blog overall behind The Huffington Post (Mashable is currently No. 3). And why is TechCrunch so big? They have a huge team, their own “network” of sites (including MobileCrunch, TalkCrunch and CrunchGear).

ComputerWorld

More and more of the best “blogs” are actually websites that compile several different bloggers, and Computerworld’s blog is no exception. Remember those mainstream media sources that realized they needed to add blogs to remain viable? Computerworld — one of the oldest and most respected IT magazines — is a great example. CW has plenty of great blogs to choose from, but our favorite is the aptly named “Apple Holic” by Jonny Evans.

Google

Sure, this blog’s name isn’t exactly the catchiest in the blogosphere, but who cares? Nobody who works in IT (actually, nobody who lives and works in 2017) can go very long without interacting with something related to Google. This is the place to find out everything about the search giant, the apps they’ve created, and information about the company.

Engadget


What’s a list of blogs without one of the many different sites devoted to Apple gossip? After all, Apple might have surpassed Microsoft as the world’s most valuable tech company while you’re reading this article. So after checking out the Official Google Enterprise Blog, be sure to check out Engadget to make sure you stay up-to-date on both of the most glamorous tech companies out there. Engadget does the best job at balancing good writing with nice graphics and pictures.
 

How-To-Geek

Even the best IT “geeks” can’t possibly know how to do everything. That’s why we love this site, where you can find out how to remove hyperlinks from Microsoft Word Docs, review products, and play a ton of free games, all on the same site. Geeks unite!

ITBusinessEdge

An all-encompassing site that happens to have some of the better tech blogs out there, ITBE is essential for those in the tech industry. After all, one of the toughest (and most exciting) parts about working in tech is that it’s ever changing. Snooze for a couple days and you’ll miss the news that what you’re working on is obsolete and the company you thought was king was just bought by someone else.

Amazon

Whether you're looking to stay up to date with Alexa and Fire TV or you're just interested in find out the latest tricks and inventions in the teck world, Amazon's Developer Blogs is the place to come and quence your thirst for you much needed info.

Microsoft

After reading up on all your interests and getting answers to many questions you might have, you can always come visit the official Microsoft Blog where you will find all the new innovations and global outreaches on behalf of the tech industry.
