23 WordPress Blogs You Should All be Subscribing To

in Blog

There are thousands of blogs which post tutorials, tips and recommendations for WordPress users. No doubt you have come across dozens of these when searching for a solution to a WordPress related problem in the past.

However, most of these blogs cover a wide range of blogging, design or web development topics. There are actually very few good active blogs which focus solely* on WordPress. Therefore in this article I am going to show you 23 great blogs which I believe all WordPress users would benefit from subscribing to.

* Two personal blogs have been included in this list because they regularly post about WordPress related topics

Another good WordPress blog is WP Hacks, but unfortunately there have been very few articles over the last 6 months so I could not include it in the main list. The strangely misspelled How To Spoter also has some good WordPress tutorials from time to time but most posts are not WordPress related so the site could not be included.

Hope you enjoyed the article. Make sure to check out the WordPress blogs you haven’t come across before. I’m sure you’ll find a few new additions to your newsreader :)

    I’ve been subscribing to 10 or more WP blogs listed here. I recently subscribed to your feeds and to a new WP blog that posts a lot of WP tips, I was just surprised that it’s under Blogger.

    BTW, WPtavern’s feedburner is linked to wpbeginner.
