6 Blogs I Check Daily

Blogging plays a big part of my day to day life. I gain knowledge, learn new tips and tricks and keep up with ever moving WordPress news. Well news in general really.

Because of this I wanted to share with you 6 blogs that I check nearly every day. Starting off with WPMU.

WPMU

A WordPress news and tips blog ran side by side with the WPMU Premium network. Featuring +140 plugins and 160+ themes.

ManageWP

A blog ran by Manage WP, a WordPress management solution. This blog features tips on blogging, productivity, WordPress tips and tricks and more. Its also worth checking out there monthly theme and plugin posts.

Leaving Work Behind

Leaving Work Behind is owned by Tom Ewer, a freelance writer who writes for ManageWP and many more company’s. One thing I like most about his blog is that he publishes his monthy income from freelance writing. His story is also very interesting as he left his full time job to become a full time freelance blogger. Well worth a look if you are unsure on making the jump.

The Next Web

If your into technology, including gadgets like mobile phone, tech company’s, computers, websites… well anything tech. This is the blog for you!

Creative Boom

This blog is a must if you are a freelancer in the creative industry at all. This blog provides vital information on the world of freelance including tips and trick and everything in between!

WPDaily (now Torque)

Torque took over from WP Daily a few weeks ago now – when it was WP Daily I used to browse the blog every day and even contributed to the content been posted. However 8BIT who were the former owners of WP Daily decided to call it a day and sell WP Daily. Now it has been purchased by WP Engine I do still check this blog but not as often as I used to. Sad really.

And that’s my 6 blogs I check daily. Do you have blogs that you check often? I’d love to hear them in the comments.

Top 10 Blog Articles – July 2013

This website is a personal project of mine – with set goals on teaching myself, not always the easy way how to successfully set-up, run and grow a blog on the internet.

This blog has been around for approximately 3 months now and so far the traffic is going the right direction month by month. However one fact I have seen from my stats is that in those 3 months a large 86.5% of people are new unique visitors. While there is nothing wrong with that, my ultimate aim is to build traffic and build a group of returning visitors. People who check my blog once, twice or maybe more in a month to build an active community of visitors commenting.

This is why I have decided to bring a month by month list of what are my top blog articles from blogs all over the internet for you to checkout. Starting off with the month just gone July.
