Blogger leaning on a RSS button.

I think one of the faults of this blog is that I don`t link out enough. Which is a shame because there are some super bloggers out there providing great information on e-cigs – and the search engines don`t always do a great job of sifting them out from all the rubbish out there.

So, partly to make up for that, I have selected my favourite blogs, all of which I read regularly, and all of which correspond to the following critiera:

  • not wholly commercial (it can be commercial but must have some non-commercial content)
  • is regularly updated (honourable exception made for Kate`s Vaper`s Network)
  • has quality content
  • exclusive or regular focus on vaping (with a bit of leeway for the scientist`s blogs below)

Please share your own ideas in the comments section! Also, please take the time to visit, read and comment on the blogs below :)

Users` Blogs

1. Steve`s Vaping World

Screenshot from Steve`s Vaping World.

A constant stream of quality, well written, well-illustrated blog posts, from reviews to guides to round up of e-cig news. I like this blog so much I commissioned Steve to write an illustrated guide to refillable electronic cigarettes (which you get for free when you sign up to our newsletter!)

2. SmokeScreen

Screenshot from 52 vapes of vaping.

Australian vaper-blogger Sana Nolan charts his progress into vaping and away from tobacco cigarettes with an attempt to create 52 blog posts about vaping. Keep it up, Sana!

Unfortunately this site is no longer up

3. Guide to Vaping

Regularly updated Guide to Vaping does a great job of providing resources for both beginning and intermediate level vapers.

 Visit Guide to Vaping.

4. The Truth About Nicotine

Vocal EK, the author of this blog, may not post frequently – but with learned, in-depth posts about nicotine misconceptions this is a good read for the serious vaper.

5. Grimm Green Industries

Grimm Green

Grimm Green is a fun blog, full of ever-changing and very cool graphics – as well as well-organised resources for vapers.

Visit Grimm Green Industries

6. Wisconsin Tobacco Harm Reduction Blog

Don`t expect a very light read, or regular updates, but if you are looking for informed, cutting analysis into the world of vaping, smoking and THR this is the blog for you.

7. The Happy Vaper

Although infrequently updated, this is a nice, relaxing video blog which feautures revews, often in the background of a walk in the English countryside. More recently there has also been a video summary of Vapefest 2011.

Scientists` Blogs

8. The Tobacco Harm Reduction Blog

Screenshot from smokles.

A team of scientists blog about tobacco harm reductions, snus and electronic cigarettes. They don`t blog as frequently as they used to, but when they do they are full of thoughtful insights – and cutting remarks on the Antz.

Visit the Tobacco Harm Reduction Blog

9. Tobacco Analysis Blog

Everyone interested in vaping, tobacco and tobacco harm reduction will, sooner or later, chance upon this blog. I`m just speeding up the process.

Vendors Blogs

10. Vapor 4 Life

Vapor4Life is a vendor`s blog, and, as you`d expect, quite commercial, but I like the way they feature users writing about their experiences switching to and using e-cigarettes.

    Thanks James! I am honored to be included in your list. I even found a blog or two on the list that I didn’t know about before!

  2. admin December 1, 2011 at 1:01 pm #

    You really deserve the mention, Steve, sorry for not linking to you more ;)

  3. Chris Birks December 1, 2011 at 1:03 pm #

    Prof. Beard’s blog is a cracker:

  4. James December 1, 2011 at 1:47 pm #

    Thanks, Chris, I’ll be adding it later.

  5. Brett C. December 1, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    We have a company blog page that isn’t all about selling products, it’s more about helping beginners get started and what not. We work very closely with Blake from http://www.GuideToVaping.com but our blog address is http://blog.texasselectvapor.com

    We aren’t competing with any of the above mentioned blogs by any means but we just thought we’d share a link to the blog, it may have a topic you’re looking for that you cannot find somewhere else.

    Thanks!

    • admin December 1, 2011 at 3:38 pm #

      Thanks, Brett, I’ll be checking it out.

  6. Kate December 1, 2011 at 3:57 pm #

    Thanks for adding Vapers Network, James. It’s not used for blogging at the moment but the static content is usually up to date.

  7. admin December 1, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

    I thought you would keep the content up-to-date, Kate.

  8. Mike Morgan December 1, 2011 at 10:35 pm #

    My E Cig Werks blog has been going for four months, and I’m trying to provide unique and original content along with affiliate links and more at http://www.ecigwerks.blogspot.com. Thanks for all the great information here, Mike Morgan

  9. John December 2, 2011 at 12:03 am #

    Great article! I’d also like to mention that I like reading http://e-cigcentral.net It’s a user reviews blog, and most of the popular e-cigarette models are there. I’ve also e-mailed the owner of the site several times asking different questions that I have about e-cigarettes, and he’s always been helpful!

  10. Greg December 2, 2011 at 1:04 am #

    Don’t forget about the CASAA Media blog — http://casaamedia.blogspot.com/

  11. GuideToVaping December 2, 2011 at 1:21 am #

    Thanks for placing GTV on the list and recognizing what we do. It’s much appreciated. I’m not sure how the other bloggers feel, but at GTV, we feel that with the more blogs that have this useful and ‘unique’ information will only greater our chances of someone noticing electronic cigarettes. We’re all after an awesome cause and I think that’s pretty cool.

  12. Steve K December 2, 2011 at 1:33 am #

    I’m with you! My philosophy with this particular genre of blogs is that a rising tide lifts all ships!

    I’m almost afraid to mention blogs, because I interact with so many awesome people I’m afraid I’d leave someone out. But here’s one that popped into my head. http://www.vape-break.com He does a pretty good job with adding the humor to his posts

    I know it’s your blog to begin with James, but you totally belong on the list too :)

  13. Texas Select Vapor December 2, 2011 at 5:41 am #

    Hey there James, I thought of another great blog that you might also like to include in your great list, http://www.vapehouston.com has a lot of really cool information. The lady that runs the blog is super cool and she covers a lot of topics there.

    Just thought I would mention that here, keep up the great work James! You are an asset to the vaping community!

  14. admin December 2, 2011 at 10:31 am #

    Sorry, Greg, I don’t how I missed the CASAA blog – now added!

  15. admin December 2, 2011 at 10:32 am #

    Steve, it seems a bit arrogant to place my own blog on my list of top e-cig blogs – but thanks for the compliment ;) I’ve added Vape Break, please feel free to make any other suggestions!

  16. admin December 2, 2011 at 10:37 am #

    @Guidetovaping, no problem – I wasn’t sure about Texas Select Vapors, though, as it seemed mostly geared towards customers.

  17. admin December 2, 2011 at 12:32 pm #

    Texas Select Vapour, vapehouston seems a little light on content at the moment, but I’ll keep my eye on the site.

  18. Kristin Noll Marsh December 2, 2011 at 7:24 pm #

    Thanks for the nod to my blog – it was a complete surprise to find out it was on the list! (I know I don’t post as much as I should, but being the admin for the CASAA Blog, the CASAA Facebook page, the CASAA Twitter account, the CASAA news page, keeping up 2 businesses, a family with young children and as long-winded as I can get, I somehow don’t seem to have enough hours in a day!!)

    Thanks for listing CASAA’s blog – I do often link to other blog posts there (including mine and Elaine’s) and also have links to interesting/related blogs in the left sidebar. The CASAA blog is the place to find out what is going on in vaping legislation and all CASAA news & Call to Actions – so people should definitely sign up to follow or get the RSS feed!

    Don’t forget Dr. Carl Philip’s blog at http://ep-ology.blogspot.com. Dr. Philip’s is our (CASAA’s) Science Advisor and has done much to promote tobacco harm reduction and e-cigarettes as a viable option. I’ve learned a lot from him!

  19. admin December 2, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    Thanks for the comment, Kristin. The reason I haven’t linked to Carl Phillip’s blog was because he is already represented by the tobacco harm reduction blog (http://smokles.wordpress.com/) and I tend to find that his smokles blog is more e-cigarette focussed than his ep-ology blog – but please correct me if I am wrong!

  20. DebiMax December 4, 2011 at 1:01 am #

    Hi James! Love the list! I have a blog, but it’s not just for vaping stuff. I just review pretty much whatever, but this month is going to have several PV relating reviews, so I’m not sure if that counts or not… if you think it would, let me know and I can send you the link?

  21. admin December 4, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

    Thanks for the suggestion, DebiMax. I read your blog with interest but I am really looking for blogs which focus solely on vaping. Will have to get you reviewing the smoker’s halo, though ;)

  22. Audrey S. December 7, 2011 at 9:49 pm #

    Thank you for including the Vapor4Life Blog on your list! It’s a fun way to interact with other vapers, share tips, personal experiences, and product information.

    • admin December 8, 2011 at 2:12 am #

      It’s a pleasure, Audrey.
