21 Creative bloggers you need to follow

Although I’ve been blogging for 7 years now, I don’t think I realised that creative bloggers existed until 2014 – I was just doing my own thing on the internet. Since 2013-ish I struggled to describe my blog, usually settling for ‘design blog’ which was correct I guess, and still is, but nobody really ‘got’ what that meant.

Like most non-bloggers, my introduction to blogging (pre-2009 when I started my blog) was via fashion – the first blog I ever followed was llymlrs aka Lily Melrose who is still going strong. Fashion and beauty bloggers, now along with lifestyle bloggers, are the most recognised group of bloggers on the internet. This is mainly because the most ‘famous’ bloggers write about fashion or beauty, and also because there are SO many of these types of blogs. Right now the market is very saturated (every man and his dog has a blog) and it’s becoming incredibly hard to stand out from the crowd. For me, there is one category that is ALWAYS overlooked: creative bloggers.

Creative Bloggers

So maybe I’m slightly biased because I am one, but creative bloggers are amazing. They are so talented, good at sharing their thoughts and feelings, and have a great eye for details and photography. Blogging is the perfect platform for creatives, because its possible to post the development of a project and receive feedback from across the world in an instant. The internet and creativity is a match made in heaven. With this in mind, I have gathered a few of my personal fave creative bloggers so you can enjoy them too:
