Welcome to “my favourite blogs of 2013”! Here are am going to introduce you to some of my favourite blogs from last year and why I’ve chosen them.

Without further ado, here are the blogs.

Why have I chosen this blog? You may or may not know, but LevelUnlocked.net was the first proper website I made and had a real go at. When I sold it, it declined fast due to a bad owner, but now an enthusiastic father-son partnership has bought LU and it’s flourishing. A new design and a hard working team. Plus, I really like the idea of the father-son duo, awesome.

What is Geoffrey Koester? This blog is something not too disimilar to mine – it is the writings of an aspiring journalist who has a particular interest in politics and history.

Why have I chosen this blog? I really like what Geoffrey’s doing with his blog. He wants to pursue a career in journalism, and he’s going the right way about it. Some really interesting food for thought articles on his blog, accompanied by a great design and writing style. Kudos, Geoffrey.
