Best Blogs of 2013 Awards from Armenante

LEEDS, England, January 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


2013 was a year in which Google made it even more difficult for low quality bloggers, and made it even more essential for blogs to be the best that they can be. The good news is that for every blog that Google stops listing, there is at least one great blog that's really worth taking the time to read.

Technology, business and finance are some of the most populated niches when it comes to blogging, but they're also some of the most difficult to tell whether the blogger knows what he or she is talking about. For this reason, we at Armenante.co.uk have compiled a list of our favourite tech, biz and finance blogs from the last year - give them a read and you'll see what we mean.

Best for SMEs

Business Times

Business Times is great for keeping up to date with ALL things business, but more importantly, the site offers some fantastic tips that can be applied to everyone, rather than simply reporting on the news. If you want to hear about who's got venture capital, check out the newspapers. If you want to hear about how to get venture capital, you could do a lot worse than read the Business Times.

Best personal finance

Alta One Studio

Alta One Studio is a fairly new site managed by blogger Kevin Donovan, who's behind some of the best known finance blogs on the internet. On Alta One, Kevin takes a much more personal approach to finance, providing tips on everything from saving money to paying back a loan.

Best insurance

Wikirandy

Wikirandy is a personal finance blog with an emphasis on how to improve the state of your finances when it comes to spending on insurance. Providing some of the best hints and tips we've read in the last year courtesy of blogger Anne Wilkinson, Wikirandy is a great blog for people who are thinking about investing their own money.

Best finance and tech advice

radioxd.net

As we've mentioned, there's plenty of crossover between finance and tech sites, and Radio XD offers the best of both worlds, as far as we're concerned. Some tips are pure personal finance, but they're always timely, and in many cases are especially useful for tech professionals.

Best finance with a twist

Gamer in Debt

Some finance blogs go the extra mile when it comes to helping their readers to get to know the blogger, and Emma at Gamer in Debt is excellent at this. Full of interesting opinions on subjects you might not have considered, but always useful for people wanting to sort out their finances, Gamer in Debt is a much more fun breed of finance blog.

Best technical finance advice

Math Made Easy

As you might have guessed from a site called Math Made Easy, the tips on offer here are a little more…advanced. That's a good thing though, as some of the subjects broached aren't covered a great deal elsewhere, and combined with the simpler advice on some of the sites above, it can give you a big hand up on your finances.

Best financial news

Financial Update

Financial Update is unlike other finance news sites in that it covers things that no other site is covering - and still makes them interesting. Ever wondered how an umbrella company works? Ever wondered where the next Dubai is going to be? Look no further.

Best tech news

Tech News Arm

Tech News Arm has been going for quite a few years now, and it has always been the mission to provide the latest advice on apps, software and consumer electronics - far from just reporting on the latest released, it's our mission here to make sure readers know exactly what that new piece of kit is worth.

Best smartphones

Smartphone Arm

Just like Tech News Arm, our smartphone was born out of Apple products, but has expanded this year to cover all smartphone news in depth - the site has gone from strength to strength this year, and with the latest Android, Apple and Blackberry news on site, Smartphone Arm has become one of the best mobile tech sites on the net.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
