Vuelio uses a proprietary algorithm to create these rankings, based on topic-related content in blogs on its system – you can read more about the process here. Our research team actively seeks out new blogs and bloggers for inclusion, but if you think we’ve missed someone, please get in touch to let us know.
Staying at the top for gadget inspecting is Geeky Gadgets, launched in 2007 as a place for Roland Hutchinson to share the latest tech news with other enthusiasts across the world. Find updates on Apple, Android, Deals, Gadgets, Technology, Hardware and Gaming as well as Auto, Camera, Entertainment and Mobile Phone News, Concepts and Design, and lots of Geeky Stuff. Alongside reporting on all this new tech, the editorial team also create their own working prototypes and concepts – they really know their stuff.
The very cool and smart blog Coolsmartphone is here to help upgrade your phone with the best software, payment plan deals, accoutrement – basically, anything you need to get your phone just as you want it. Whether you’re a fan of iOS or Android, you’ll be able to find what you need quickly among the Reviews, Features and How-To sections. Founder Leigh Geary sadly passed away earlier this year – if you’d like to donate to Leigh’s chosen charity in his memory, you can find details here.
Rounding off our top three is The Red Ferret, which stays in the same spot for another year. Founded by Sunday Times feature writer and columnist Nigel Powell, the Red Ferret has been ‘covering the people’s tech since 2000’. Nigel and the team find the bizarre among the best when it comes to tech – check out recent articles on the world’s first 3D-printed house made of raw earth, how a new lozenge can rebuild tooth enamel painlessly and a self-build DIY phone kit (for you electrical engineers with free time and a soldering iron).
Moving up a spot in the ranking this year is the truly mighty Mighty Gadget blog, sharing Buying Guides (including gift guides and shopping), the latest technology news from around the world (new stereoscopic 3D display and eye tracking for laptops), Phones & Mobile (what is the best football game on the Google Play Store in 2021?), Smart Home features (fridge freezers with artificial intelligence) and Reviews (what streaming microphone to pick if you want multiple pickup patterns).
Our first new blog to the ranking this year is GadgetsBoy, a website dedicated to gadgets and technology. ‘We review them, we take them apart in some cases, we test them and bring you the latest news’. The blog’s team of reviewers, reporters and those busy surfing the web for important breaking news share 5G, Android Reviews, Gadgets and Technology. If you’re working from home, check out their take on standing desks, and for those who want to move around a bit more, their review on portable speakers available to buy.
This Joseph Onibokun-founded blog TechSling moves up two spaces in the Technology ranking this year, continuing to attract followers and fans interested in going behind the scenes with high-profile and emerging developers. Content is split into Tech, Business, Education, Entertainment, Social and Lifestyle and just some of the topics recently tackled include why cryptocurrency and video games work so well together, trends propelling IoT adoption this year and why humans have no chance against AI (*gulp*).
After being stuck at home through the UK lockdowns this year, a bit of automation for daily chores and tasks would certainly be nice – luckily, Automated Home is here to help you kit out your homestead. Mark McCall originally launched this blog back in 1996 to chronicle the creation of his own automated home and now shares his know-how with others hoping to do the same (or, at the least, those who want to install a connected doorbell). Flick through Mark’s recommendations on New Products, Tutorials, Hardware and Software, too.
8. She Can Code
For ‘the latest in tech, diversity and inclusion’, She Can Code – another new entry to our ranking for 2021 – is the place. The Blog Squad working on She Can Code features a whole host of contributors from different areas of the technology industry who are ‘passionate about technology and diversity, sharing thought-provoking, valuable, and translatable content that will help you to excel in a career in technology’.

10. STEM Women Blog
We round up our ranking with another new entry, which started its first ‘STEM Women’ assignment in 2016 as a gender balanced recruitment agency for a graduate recruiter. Since then, STEM Women has helped over 180 graduate employers attract female applicants to graduate schemes, placement opps and internships. Recently on the blog, the team has been celebrating Pride Month, introducing new graduate trainees, the must-read books for women in tech and how to kick Imposter Syndrome in the butt.
