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 :)
1. 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.
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.
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 is a fun blog, full of ever-changing and very cool graphics - as well as well-organised resources for vapers.
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.
8. The Tobacco Harm Reduction Blog
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.
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.
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.
Here's some more great suggestions left on facebook, forums, the comments e.t.c.
11. Professor Beard's Blog
Suggested by Chris Birks and Jaded on UK Vapers. Here's what Jaded said:
'An informative and educative blog that celebrates the lost art of the text review and features the most amazing, almost gynaecological, uber macro photography... '
12. The Vape Babe
Suggested by Casey J Peter.
Vape Babe, if you are reading - what is a Pink Ming?
13. Vape Break
14. CASAA Media Blog
Suggested by Gregory.
Keep the suggestions coming!
