At Fueled, our mobile design company is composed of coders, designers, strategists and product experts. This year, we've added a new set of talent: We now have 15 writers on our growing content team.
While all of our writers come from backgrounds in journalism, media and marketing, not all have been immersed in technology and the startup ecosystem. So when they asked us, "How can I become a better tech news writer?" We answered, "Become a better tech news reader."
To jump start their careers as tech bloggers, we compiled a list of essential reading. We hope you find it useful too!
- The obvious choices are the tech blogs like: The Next Web, Read Write Web, TechCrunch, The Verge, Lifehacker, Tech City News (for London-based news) and The Guardian Technology.
- We tap Fast Co Exist when we're looking to see articles like this.
- Paul Graham is the JC of tech startups. He offers great advice and unique insights.
- SayMedia: The essential website for keeping up with media news.
- Help Me Write Blog: This is a great resource for writing tips, interviews, and interesting insights.
- NotCot: A collection of great design sites in one place. We use it for quick design inspiration.
- Two epic communities: Hacker News + Reddit Technology: These UGC powered sites are jungles. However, if you're willing to dig, you will be rewarded.
- We love email newsletters like Startup Digest: A weekly digest sent to your inbox. Use it to stay up-to-date on anything and everything startup related.
- And The Albion Almanac: Sign up for this newsletter and find yourself looking forward to its arrival every Friday. It is is an excellent curation of weekly news from tech to business.
- And the Protein Newsletter: This weekly read is the smaller, cooler version of whatever Vice is trying to be. Sign up for their newsletter and check their website daily. If you’re in London, check out the coffee shop in the bottom of their office.
- And for Fueled specifically, iOS Dev Weeklyis great. We rely on this weekly newsletter for it's hand picked selection of links on news, code, design and business.
- Lastly, if you love newsletters, be sure to sign up to Fueled's. We're launching our own soon!
