Ah Seattle. The Emerald City. The Gateway to Alaska, Gateway to the Pacific, Queen City, Seatown, and Rain City. All names for a beautiful and thriving metropolis, notable not only for its famous Space Needle, but for the amazing people who live there. For the best of the blogs about Seattle, keep reading. You’ll find tips on where to eat, where to go, historical information, and even a perspective from someone willing to tell you all the things they hate about Seattle.
Seattle Daily Photo
Kim has been updating her blog since 2006, and her photographs truly make you want to travel to Seattle and see some of the gorgeous sights she captures. A truly gifted photographer, Kim does “photowalks” through different parts of Seattle and puts her photos on her blog. I hope she doesn’t get mad that I just show you what her homepage header looks like – all her photos are all rights reserved, and don’t even think about downloading one without her express permission. These photos are like a little piece of her soul – so be kind to Kim’s soul, won’t you?

Jess Cliffe maintains this blog as a hobby. Software Designer and 3D Artist by day, Jess wanted this website to be a place where people could learn about and appreciate Seattle’s history. Some of the posts feature old postcards, others talk about historic buildings. Reading this website is a great way to learn the history of Seattle, and gain some appreciation for it.

A Sack of Seattle
So I don’t really know the name of the author of this website. I will say this. This website is on the list because it is a true representation of a regular blog of a Seattle resident. The author shares information about his business life, his life as a parent, and his thoughts about Seattle, the world, and life as we know it. It’s a good read.

For an unadulterated account of Seattle from someone who, well, hates the weather there, check out Glitter Pissing. R4KK4 is a funny, creative, prolific blogger who isn’t afraid to tell it how it is.

With a crack team of writers, editors, artists, and more, Seattlest is “a website about Seattle an everything that happens in it.” It accepts contributions. If you live in Seattle, you can write for them (as long as you’re a good writer and you actually have something interesting to write about). The site is part of a bigger network of blogs about major cities, but it’s bona fide.

Little Seattle Observationist
Unlike one of the earlier blogs, this author LOVES Seattle. She says about the weather “It’s not gloomy; it’s mood lighting.” Her name is April Lee and she is part raging optimist, part journalist, and altogether awesome.
