Recently, I set out to find the top bloggers in the Hamilton and Burlington area. Little did I realize that there were so many active bloggers in the area blogging about subjects ranging from Politics to Pulled Pork.
There were so many Hamilton & Burlington bloggers creating great content it was difficult to pick just 10 blogs. In order to make the list the blog had to be by someone who lives in the Hamilton & Burlington area.
Here are some of the criteria I used to narrow the list down:
So without further ado, here are the blogs that stood out from the crowd in no particular order
- Unique subject matter
- How often the blog was updated with new posts
- Quality of content - good, interesting writing and photos
- An active reader base commenting and contributing their opinions
- Good website & blog design
