10 Blogs to watch in 2010

10 Blogs To Watch in 2010

This post was going to be my 10 favourite blogs of 2009, however as I started writing the post, I couldn’t get the list down to 10, so here is my list of 16 sites which I think you should be checking out regularly in 2010 and retweeting and commenting on the great articles you’ll find there.

Here we go:

  4. Menwithpens
  5. Johnny B Truant
  6. Chris Guillebeau
  7. Giveabrick
  8. Ittybiz
  9. Jonathan Fields
  10. 2Chicksathome
  11. Bluepop13
  12. David Risley
  13. A Meaningful existence
  14. Problogger
  15. Don Power
  16. The Middle Finger Project

When I originally wrote this post I thought that 10 Blogs to follow would be a great title. The truth is I do follow more that 10 blogs as you can see from the above list. Following the great comments below, I thought I’d update the post with a few further blogs that I follow but less frequently and also the URL’s to the blogs suggested in the comments below:

  1. Copyblogger
  2. Blogger illustrated
  3. Wassup Blog
  4. Not a Pro Blog
  5. Man v’s Debt


  • Gordie - Lifestyle Design For You said:

    I would like to add and πŸ™‚

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hi Gordie, thanks for sharing. So why should these blogs feature on here then?

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hi Gordie,

    I’ve visited Man v’s Debt a few times since I came across him on Problogger. I’d not come across Notaproblog before I saw it on James’ site a few weeks ago.

    But, you’re right they both should be on the list and I’ve now included them!

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Ben Lumley said:

    Hey Matthew

    Thanks for being included in your list. There are some awesome blogs on the list – lost of them I already regularly follow.

    But I think you’re missing an important one.

    The Big Red Tomato Company

    It’s really good – you should check it out!

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hey Ben, thanks for the comment.

    This Big Red Tomato Company blog sounds great. I’m adding the RSS and newsletter subscription now!

    Thanks for the great ideas!

  • Justin Matthews said:

    I want to be on the 2010 list….:)

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hi Justin, thanks for the comment.

    Tell us why you should be on it then!

  • TheInfoPreneur said:

    Hey brother,

    Thanks for an awesome mention, yeah number 1!

    I would like to add Allyn from and Sire from

    Re-Tweeting now

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hey James, thanks for the comment and sharing the other blogs. Always lots of value from you!

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hey James, I’ve added the blogs you suggested to the list. I had not heard of them until I came across them on your site a few weeks ago. They have great information and they should be on the list.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Eleanor Edwards said:

    Wow Matthew, I don’t know what to say, thank you 😳

    Thanks too for introducing me to some new blogs. I look forward to checking them out (once I get the children to school ;))

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hi Eleanor, that’s quite alright, you have some great articles on your site and a great idea and initiative. Good luck.

  • Karen said:

    Thanks for including me, Matthew. It’s much appreciated to be in such a great list for 2010.

    I like lists like these because you sometimes get to discover new blogs that you haven’t visited before.


  • Heather said:

    Cool, more sites to check out πŸ™‚ Think I’m already subscribed to half of them though… Some great stuff there.

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hi Heather, that’s really good news. I hope you’ve found something new and useful in the list.

  • Ralph said:

    I don’t know all of these blogs but I will be checking them out.

  • Matthew Needham said:

    Hey Ralph, glad you’ve found something new here. I hope you find them of benefit.
