Good but not so popular blogs

Popular blogs on Google?

google

How do you find the best content on search engines? Just like any other search engines, the quantity algorithms is what powers them, rather than quality.

Try search for singapore blogs in google, and the first result will probably be by theasianparent. Which it listed 11 Singapore socio-political blogs you should be reading. Others include lists compiled by Alvinology or The Smart local of the most popular blogs by traffic.

What do you search for?

What do you look for when you look for information online? Is high traffic equal to substance? Do you get the information that you are looking for? As much as technology brings us convenience, but there is no way that google can judge human qualities.

Do you trust the top lists?

How can you trust the lists curated by humans? The list goes on with lifestyle, food, parent, socio-political bloggers. Nonetheless, they are unadmittedly the most popular blogs by traffic. But here’s a list with the criterias we usually look for in a blog.

  • Tells the truth

  • Is is sponsored content?

  • Brings the idea across well

  • Thoughtful

Starting from some Singaporean blogs- written by Singaporeans for Singaporeans.

This is a rather recent founded blog. Started in early 2017, Singaporean law graduates- Rio Hoe and Daniel Huang aim to generate positive dialogue and reasons through addressing themes along socio-cultural issues. Talking about politics is extra sensitive in Singapore where consensusg has proven themselves to be sensible and well-edited to take a stand well enough through the heat of political moments.

The issues we find problematic in Singapore- Jin Yao shares about them. Even the education system that we dread but still follow anyway, he writes with a journalistic sensibility with a stand similar to the news.

If you like content that stimulates insights to relatable socially relevant content, you should really check his blog out!

One fun fact is that he has written for The Middle Ground before!

Thelongwindingroad

If you want to avoid wordy written pieces, this is definitely a blog with many pictures. Even with the amount of pictures, it is still able to provide a detailed explanation of what it wants to say. As the title of the blog says, it has treasures hidden deeply within the blog. You can slowly uncover from this blog to see Singapore from an ethno perspective. Highly recommended if you want a page to not be distracted by personal memories and impressions!

If you were to like something more present, we have Zach.

Theheartlandertourist

This blog compiled Singapore in it’s present form- mostly experiences that are close to many of our hearts. As the title says, this is more of a travel themed blog than a cultural. Starting from food to the deep rooted heritage, this remains as a user-friendly resource for people looking for uninfluenced ideas. You can also get amazing photo shots of all things Zach has shared on this blog.

We hope this is useful- and credits to smartcasual for these awesome recommendations!
