Refresh Your Feeds

A quill pen.

The other day in conversation on Twitter with Nathaniel Southwood (@NateDawg27) we were prompted to think about beer blogs and bloggers again.

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut fol­low­ing the same few peo­ple you’ve always engaged with since year dot and thus get the idea that Beer Blog­ging is Dead when some or all of them give up the game. Mean­while, whole new waves of blogs have come, and maybe gone, and prob­a­bly been replaced by yet more.

We share round-ups of inter­est­ing stuff every Sat­ur­day, try­ing to cast the net as far and wide as pos­si­ble, which hope­ful­ly helps high­light inter­est­ing writ­ers but we some­times end up fea­tur­ing the same names time and again for var­i­ous rea­sons.

So, by way of a bit of extra sauce, what we’re going to do here is pro­vide a list (if not’s rude to say so) of less well-known blog­gers we’re fol­low­ing via RSS (we use Feed­ly) with brief notes on what they’re about.

You might not like the look of all of them, and inclu­sion does­n’t nec­es­sar­i­ly equate to endorse­ment, but hope­ful­ly you’ll find at least one or two new things to spice up your feeds.
