The other day in conversation on Twitter with Nathaniel Southwood (@NateDawg27 (https://twitter.com/NateDawg27)) we were prompted to think about beer blogs and bloggers again.It’s easy to get stuck in a rut following the same few people you’ve always engaged with since year dot and thus get the idea that Beer Blogging is Dead when some or all of them give up the game. Meanwhile, whole new waves of blogs have come, and maybe gone, and probably been replaced by yet more.
We share round-ups of interesting stuff every Saturday (https://boakandbailey.com/tag/news-nuggets/), trying to cast the net as far and wide as possible, which hopefully helps highlight interesting writers but we sometimes end up featuring the same names time and again for various reasons.
So, by way of a bit of extra sauce, what we’re going to do here is provide a list (if not’s rude to say so) of less well-known bloggers we’re following via RSS (we use Feedly (http://feedly.com)) with brief notes on what they’re about.
You might not like the look of all of them, and inclusion doesn’t necessarily equate to endorsement, but hopefully you’ll find at least one or two new things to spice up your feeds.
