    Default Favourite & less favourite beer bloggers

    ROBCamra mentioned on another thread that some of the Blogs in the Blog Tracker section were a bit, well not to his taste. So not a poll but which bloggers are a "don't miss" and which "a load of piss" for you? I'm not suggesting the least favourite get kicked off the site this is just a bit of fun and no one gets hurt.

    My list of what's hot:

    http://pubcurmudgeon.blogspot.com
    http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/
    https://boakandbailey.com/
    http://tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.com
    http://zythophile.co.uk/ (when sticking to history)
    http://brapa-4500.blogspot.com/
    http://cookinglager.blogspot.com/
    http://seeingthelizards.blogspot.com
    https://ladysinksthebooze.wordpress.com

    and what's not - just the wurst:

    https://retiredmartin.com (boring)
    https://baileysbeerblog.blogspot.com/ (mega-boring)
    https://thebeernut.blogspot.com/ (if you want to wind up this one, make a comment including the word "Eire" instead of "Republic of Ireland" he'll love you.)
    http://maltworms.blogspot.com (that stream of consciousness stuff can get a bit waring)

    others are just dreary or take themselves too seriously or pontificate with too little knowledge

    (and/or bad spelling/grammar, does anyone these days know the difference between To, Too & Two or There, They're & Their? or not let their spell checker get away with Then for Than?)
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I broadly agree with your list. There were several who seemed to feel the need to highlight how anti-Brexit they were, which was boring and ruined whatever they were writing about. Cooking Lager is my favourite.

    I am wondering how many people who have recently started writing a blog, are now reluctant to make their blog public - especially on Pubs Galore, for fear of being secretly sniggered, and sneered at?

    This is my blog, It's nothing too thought provoking , I'm not into politics, beer politics or otherwise, it's generally just a retrospective commentary on various pub visits. Personally I couldn't care a jot if it's sniggered or sneered at, It's there so if anyone who comes across it and gets something from it, that's fine, If it's not their thing , that's also fine.

    An excellent blog. One that really is just about the love of pubs and beer. The internal (pubby!) photos give the viewer the feeling that they are in the pub and taking in all its atmosphere. Especially enjoyable at this pub free time!

    Thank you Alan, It's not something I'm serious or obsessed about and done nothing since the pubs have closed, just a little creative outlet now and again.

    If it's "secretly" how would they know?

    I suppose if you write something in a public space you must expect criticism, and I don't mean trolling. If someone finds a blog boring or dreary that's just their opinion and the blogger can either ignore it or think about it.

    Quite correct.
