A Comprehensive List of Austin’s Best Blogs

(Update: I wrote this blog post in 2012 and just updated as of April 28, 2015)

There are an ass-load of awesome blogs in Austin, Texas.

(I think) I read a statistic somewhere that Austin has more bloggers per capita than any place in the country.

Since I have zero proof that Austin has the most bloggers of any place in America, one fact I do know is that Men’s Health Magazine labeled Austin the #8 most socially networked city in America.

Since we boast such awesome blogging talent, I wanted to create a comprehensive list of Austin bloggers for those interested in the Austin scene. We have amazing writers who cover everything from lifestyle, music, food, humor, travel and dating. Take some time and get to know these great Austinites.

If you don’t see one of your favorite Austin blogs listed that may be because a.) I’m only listing blogs that have blogged within the past six month and blog more than once a month and b.) I’m a jackass, I didn’t know that the blog existed and you should correct me by sending me the URL to your favorite blog in the comment section RIGHT NOW!

If I forgot your blog, I promise you, I don’t hate you! Send me your blog URL in the comments below and you can slap me next time you see me in public.

Don’t want anyone to be disappointed with the lack of dating stories now that I’m in a long term relationship. My old blog “Single Blonde in the City” has better dating stories if anyone wants them.

    Would love to attend a meet-up for other Austin bloggers! Keep us posted….

    I’m an Austin blogger! I was in last weekends Listen To Your Mother show. I’m more of a humor writer than anything. But when you have “mama” in your title, you get associated with mommy-blogs. I assure you, I’m more than a mommy blog…those chicks make way more money than the nothing I make off of my blog!

      Yes! Of course! I’ve added you to the list! <3

    I see I better publish my own list. There are entire categories you don’t cover in yours. My quick count in my RSS reader is 27 Austin blogs that aren’t mentioned above.

    • Reply hipstercrite April 29, 2015 at 11:57 am

      Yes, you should!
      It’s difficult for me to keep up with them all, so that’s why I ask people to share their blogs with me so I may add to this list.
      If you create a list, it’s all the more exposure for those bloggers.

    Also, if that lady bloggers meetup y’all mentioned becomes (or already is, this post has been up for a bit) a thing let us know. We are definitely interested !

    Perhaps not your typical blog, but I run my own business in Circle C (I’m a dentist, my practice is called Southwest Smiles) and I manage a blog on my dental office’s website full of both fun and informative facts about dentistry. There are so many things to learn about taking care of your teeth, my patients are often surprised! I answer questions about why teeth feel fuzzy (, what foods are good for your teeth, and I want my next one to focus on bad dental habits. Too many people chew on ice and don’t floss! If you care about your teeth and want to learn more about taking care of them, you should check it out!
