Best blogs for webmasters

To learn more and to keep up with the latest trends, I was following 41 web-related blogs… daily! My interests are web design, marketing, front-end development and digital activism. I used to scan about 120 new posts per day and select just a few to read.

But that’s a lot of time spent scanning Digg Reader and that’s not sustainable. Today I’ve decided to change my approach and scan a smaller list with my favourite blogs. Now I can save time, relax and think about how to practice what I’ve learned on the best posts. Many blogs talk about the same issues anyway.

Selecting my short list favorite blogs was not easy, as all the 41 deserved to be in, but this is my final choice:

Web development and web design

  • A List Apart (RSS) – It has an excellent archive of web development related techniques.
  • Smashing Magazine (RSS) – Webdesign, webdevelopment and the business of making websites.
  • Nettuts (RSS) – Great tutorials for beginners and advanced web developers.
  • Daily JS (RSS) – A blog about JavaScript, browser-based and in the server.
  • HC Cognition (RSS) – Focused on creativity and management of creative teams
  • The Web Ahead – Podcast about front-end development and the future of web technologies. Recently also the home for “The Web Behind” series, about the history of the world wide web

Digital marketing

Digital activism

Social networking

If you want to try reading this blogs regularly, I recommend using an RSS reader like Google Reader and import this list. You can download, unzip and import my OPML file.
