15 Tech Bloggers To Follow In 2016
One of the things I love most about the Internet is how much it has pushed resources, both casual and professional, to provide better and better content. Not only do we have an endless stream of information at our fingertips 24 x 7 x 365, we can have it in whatever flavor or specialty that strikes our fancy. A danger, though, is that we get stuck reading the same old stuff, never branching out to take in a fresh angle or perspective.
For this reason, I like to evaluate my news sources every so often. I jettison some that feel stale or have started to get a little boring, going on the hunt for fresh places and faces to feed my technology addiction.
I decided to share some of the blogs whose writers I feel are worth following this year. They represent possibly some new faces you haven’t seen previously, but all have solid takes on technology, covering all sorts of topics from blogging and online income to computers and gadgets. I’d encourage you to check each of them out, take a look at some of their content, and see how it might fit in with your regular technology news intake.
One word of caution…I can’t take responsibility for the great ideas you might gain from these bloggers, nor the endless amount of technology “stuff” you’re likely going to be putting on the wish list. Enjoy!
