It seems blogrolls are making a comeback. I didn’t have one the last time around they were a thing. This is exciting — here’s mine! 😀
Each blog listed has a feed you can subscribe to. I recommend Miniflux for a feed-reader.
- A fully-managed, hosted solution costs $15/year, and is a great way to support an indie developer.
- You also have the option to self-host.
- I can set you up on my Miniflux instance.
This is not an exhaustive list. I do update this now and then but do not expect the Arch Linux experience (bleeding edge).
My favourite feeds are marked with an asterisk. (*)
Friends I’ve made thanks to the Fediverse:
- Arpit Batra * — a very human and personal blog from a fellow Indian. good to see more of this around the web.
- Chris Burnell — notes on front-end web development.
- Chris Wiegman * — engineering manager and speaker prominent in WordPress spaces, writes tech and personal life.
- Darek Kay — an accessibility advocate writing notes on front-end web development.
- Darshak Parikh — yet another friend from India. into Linux (elementaryOS specifically, for which he makes apps too!), web development, and pixel art.
- Jan-Lukas Else — an active blogger who posts about his personal life; works on cool side projects too!
- Kev Quirk — an active blogger who posts all sorts of things: tech, bikes, children, pets being the main topics of interest. That’s not it; you’ll also find some detailed tutorials.
- Mike Stone — well-flowing personal notes/opinions on all things open source.
- Mo Bitar — developer of StandardNotes who mostly writes philosophical pieces.
- Nathan DeGruchy — mostly personal but also tech related content sometimes.
- Nicholas Danes * — a friend who, like me, chases things that don’t break all the time and at the same time are not a hammer on his mental health, time, and life. No longer keeps a blog.
- TyChi * — pens his journey against Big Tech. very friendly and open to collaborations on anything he vibes with.
- Veronique * — quickly becoming one of my favorite personal/art blogs. I love her honesty and her style of writing (somewhere very neatly between journaling and professional prose).
- Vincent Tunru — very considered thoughts on practices and tools in the tech industry.
The following folks inspire me:
- Aral Balkan — fighting the good fight. level headed and friendly. very opinionated.
- Cassidy James — works with open software in a meaningful way. has worked with elementaryOS in the past and championed a standardized way for apps and Linux OS to understand dark mode preference (will always have my thanks).
- Josh Justice (CodingItWrong) — a Ruby on Rails & React Native developer trying to do things right in the industry.
- Max Böck
- Piccalilli (All Content)
- Sara Soueidan
- Tiny Subversions — author of Hometown
- Tom Preston-Werner
