Last April I had the honor of contributing a guest list on the 10 Best UX (User Experience) Design blogs [the list, my blog post] for Six Apart’s Blogs.com.
I still regularly read almost all of the blogs I listed, but recently realized that there are many new, revamped or lesser known UX blogs that really deserve some attention. Another year, another list.
Now live on Blogs.com is my 10 UX (User Experience) Blogs to Watch in 2010!
Okay, so I couldn’t pick just 10…there are 11.
Here are my picks for the UX blogs to watch in 2010, in alphabetic order:
- 52 Weeks of UX
For each week in 2010, co-writers Joshua Brewer and Joshua Porter each offer a highly focused post that packs a lot of punch.
- 90 Percent of Everything
Harry Brignull illustrates Sturgeon’s Second Law — “90% of everything is crud” — with periodic insights on how to create the 10%.
Liz Danzico’s scrapbook of seemingly disparate ideas brilliantly broadens the scope of experience design.
- Johnny Holland
An international group of writers explores the meaning of interaction design and aims to have its (sometimes incendiary) essays start new conversations.
- Pure Caffeine
Nathanael Boehm shares his thoughts on the intersection of social experience design and Government 2.0.
Keith Lang talks about technology trends and how they relate to cognitive psychology and user interface design.
- Usability Post
Dmitry Fadeyev provides weekly tips and resources on how to make your products more usable.
Jasper van Kuijk posts design examples, news, and observations on consumer product usability as he works on completing his PhD.
- UX Booth
Andrew Maier, Matthew Kammerer, and David Legget are three fresh-faced guys behind the blog that’s becoming one of the most widely read UX resources.
- Winning Content
Colleen Jones shares demonstrates the crucial role that content strategy plays in creating positive user experiences.
- Wireframes Magazine
Jakub Linowski proves that there’s no right way to wireframe with regular samples of practitioners’ UX deliverables.

Thanks for this round-up… I found some new sites to add to my reading list.
Nice list Whitney. I'd add Semantic Foundry and Bokardo.

Thanks, Greg. I had Bokardo on my list last year. Will Evans' Semantic Foundry is definitely another favorite, thanks for mentioning it.
Thanks! Some of the listed are real treasure.
