So here it is, the creme de la creme of UX bloggers, if there was a ‘Bloggers Blog Award’ for user experience related content then this will indeed be it.
In our previous post, the Top 50 UX blogs, we contacted a variety of specialist bloggers directly and asked them what blogs they follow and who do they get inspired by? From the responses, we compiled the ultimate list of blogs and resources.
However, in addition to this initial research, there was a clear trend of specific ‘UX bloggers’ regularly noted by others. These guys not only write for other websites but have their own blogs and twitter feeds that provide great content. It would only seem fitting to give these thought leaders a special mention.
So we thought we’d compile a list of the top 10 UX bloggers, as voted by others. Check out the shortlist and let us know who you get inspired by in the comments below.
