There are a TON of great blogs in and about Austin. For several weeks now I’ve been compiling a list of as many as I could find about all sorts of topics here in Austin and Central Texas.
Click to Tweet 100 blogs about Austin
Today I heard one of the oddest lines I’ve ever heard while helping someone move to Austin. “I’m moving to Austin without a Job”. This guy was going to start a blog, and make a go here.
It caused me to stop and think for a few minutes.
Anyone can start a blog. For free. But to make a truly great blog takes some work.
Work like these people have done.
Here is my list of the 100 greatest Austin Blogs. Ordered alphabetically because I don’t know of any other way. Most are updated daily or at least several times per week, and all are worth checking out. Now, just because your blog or your favorite blog isn’t on this list, it’s not because I don’t like you. I just don’t know about you! So be sure to provide suggestions in the comments below and I’ll add it!
