The 40 Leading Startup Bloggers

When I pivoted my business two years ago to focus on startup marketing, I did a couple of things to drive brand awareness: write two blogs posts a week, and publish a weekly newsletter featuring a variety of startup content.

In the process, I started to track bloggers who wrote about startups on a regular basis – people such as April Dunford, Ben Yoskovitz, Mark Suster, Fred Wilson and Tomasz Tunguz.

For whatever reason, it seemed like a good idea to create a list of startup bloggers. It seemed like a pretty easy assignment but it took several weeks of research, which involved looking at dozens of Websites.

What I surprisingly discovered is there aren’t many individual bloggers who blog exclusively about startups on a regular basis – I’m talking about on a weekly or even bi-weekly basis. Some of the startup bloggers mentioned on lists such as this one from OnStartups have either stopped writing or do so infrequently.

In the end, I came up with 40 blogs that fit the bill. Keep in mind, it does not include large blogs such as VentureBeat, TechCrunch, The Next Web, et al because I wanted to focus on individuals. If you know a blog that should be on the list, leave a comment.

      Thanks. It was an interesting exercise but I’m glad to have captured people who provide great startup counsel. Thanks for the comment.

    Thanks Mark. This is a valuable list. Using a slide deck is a great visual way to present the blog. What do you think about also including links to them and mentioning why they made the cut in your top 40?

      The flipbook (powered by Uberflip) has links to each blog. Click on the image and it launches the flipbook. I’ll also upload it to Slideshare with notes. Thanks for the note.
