The New Blogger's Guide to Following Bloggers on Twitter

Well done me for accidentally covering up my own face. I guess you could see it as an improvement.

When you first create a blog, you'll fall into one of two categories: either you'll have no idea a whole blogging community exists, which is the possibly outdated category I used to be in (?!) or you'll know there's a blogging community but you'll have no idea where to start. Because it's a pretty massive community. Like, global. Who do you follow? How do you find new blogs to read? You know they're all out there somewhere but it would be so handy if there was just a list...

It wouldn't be possible to make a list of every single blogger in the world, but to get you started, here's a list of blogging pals you should be following. I've put one of these lists together before, but it was ages ago and I've made so many new friends since then (so, a side note: if you're an old friend of mine, you're not on here because you were on the last one!) Now, originally this was going to be a list with a bit of writing about each person, but it soon became apparent that I was basically saying the same thing over and over again. They really are very good eggs.

For ease, I'll be linking to people on Twitter - you don't have to have Twitter to look at their profiles and then their blogs. Go and show them some love!

And while we're here, why don't you add to the list in the comments? Partly to help the newbies, and partly - selfishly - to help me... it doesn't matter how long you've been blogging (don't even ask, but I'm 18 in human years, and wrinkly and grey-haired in blogging years) you'll never know everyone.

Who should we be following?


  1. I've been looking for a list of exciting new people to follow!

  2. Thanks! I don't follow any of these bloggers, so I will check them out. :)

  3. Thanks for putting out this list! I personally looked up 'best book blogs by teenagers' to get ideas for starting my own one, and it really is inspiring looking at what young people have created just out of their love of reading.
