I've tried my best to keep this question non-subjective so am not asking which blogs are definitively "the BEST" but instead am using the opportunity to just try to broaden my scope of reading around the subject.

I am already reading blogs by Michael Bolton, James Bach, Alan Richardson, Dorothy Graham, the Google Testing blog (James Whittaker) and the Weekend Testing blog.

Can anyone make some further recommendations?

    Sounds like a prime candidate for Community Wiki :)

  • How would I go about setting that up ? May 10 '11 at 15:16
  • If you edit the post, you should see a checkbox for "Community Wiki" near the bottom. Essentially, it gives a clear indicator to others that "This isn't an 'answerable' question, but is one that will still be very useful to the community."

  • Edit: hmm, I went to one of my questions. It looks like the CW link is gone. Awkward...

    This would be a whole lot more useful if you could pick a specific topic. This seems to have collected a bunch of barely-related links to blogs (or, in a few cases, links to links to blogs, and in one or two instances, links to things that weren't blogs at all). Someone looking for information will generally have at least some idea of what they want: testing methodology, test design, automation, management, etc. - throwing an ever-longer reading list at them is less helpful than it should be.

http://feeds.softwaretestingclub.com/ is the official area we aggregate Software Testing Blogs and other sources. In the footer you can subscribe to separate topics by RSS (Blogs, Spanish, Events, Jobs, etc). Latest posts from the Blog section also appear on our main website and blog.

I've lost track on how many blogs are listed, it is a lot and is constantly updated.

Here's a list of blogs (from my blog).

http://strazzere.blogspot.com/p/people-in-testing.html

Lots of good ones in there...

  • Wow this is extensive ... Thanks! I actually just came across your blog this afternoon Joe but didn't find that particular post. May 10 '11 at 19:33
  • Thanks. In the blogspot paradigm, that's a "page" and not a "post". You can see a list of pages ("Home" "About This Blog" "25 Things About Me" "People in Testing" "Friends") in a horizontal navigation bar in the top portion of each page. May 12 '11 at 11:34
  • I've recently added a new Page I call "What People are Writing" which aggregates links to blogs I like. You can find it here: strazzerej.blogspot.com Dec 23 '11 at 17:54

Maybe not a comprehensive list, but, here's some of my favourites, not including the ones that you've already mentioned.

Software Testing Club - Not just blogs, but, a great source of information, and does aggregate many testing blogs.

Evil Tester

RBCS blog

Tester Tested! - Pradeep Soundararajan's blog

Testy Testy - Lanette Creamer's blog

The social tester

    +1 for software testing club, everyone should also look at their publication 'Testing Planet' for some great articles thetestingplanet.com (am currently writing my first article for them) May 11 '11 at 9:01

http://blog.isthereaproblemhere.com

http://www.questioningsoftware.com

http://blogs.msdn.com

Being a simple person, I just subscribed to Rosie Sherry's http://www.google.com/reader/shared/user/01950759537487304585/label/softwaretesters in my google reader and get a lots of great software testing blogs in one subscription.

  • Thanks :) This is actually the main Blog STC Testing Feeds, which is in turn re-used across STC. The best one to subscribe to that is always updated. Just added some more today actually :) Now the bloggers just need to keep blogging. Jun 1 '11 at 16:10

I'm big into aggregated "planets" and I think Test Automation Planet is great.

Many of the blogs listed above are also aggregated into this single RSS feed.

I like the Google Testing Blog, it includes some great stuff from James Whittaker who used to be a head honcho of Test at Microsoft, and not so long ago moved to Google to do a similar thing.
