Update: 2017’s list of the best websites is here!
Welcome to the most awesome blog post you’re going to see all year. Yep, it’s the third installment in the super-popular annual series in which I document the sites I think you’ll want to spend a lot of time on in the coming year (below you’ll find a few highlights from recent years in case you missed out). I have one major rule: a site can only appear on this list once, so there are never any duplicates. Every year this list is 100% fresh. Every list also takes on a life of it’s own. The categories change, but the grading criteria remains the same: I look at design, content and that creative “x-factor” that sets a site apart from the pack. I hope at least 95% of these sites are new to you. There are a couple that I simply couldn’t believe I hadn’t included before. You’ll know which ones when you see them. Putting together this list each year is a lot of (fun) work that literally takes many months. As I run into interesting blogs and websites I save them in an Evernote file, slowly begin categorizing them, weed out sites that don’t belong, etc. Disclaimer: if you find something you don’t like in one (or more) of the sites below, sorry, but I’m simply not able to vet every piece of content produced by 100 sites. I’ve tried my best to keep this list in the category of safe to view at work. Finally, as you spend some time on this site it is my hope that you will come to view DailyTekk as one of your favorite sites as well. I work hard to publish fresh technology finds (hardware and software), interesting opinions, reviews, roundups and more. If that sounds interesting to you, please take a moment to add DailyTekk to your Flipboard or Digg Reader account, subscribe to email updates or follow on Twitter. Enjoy, and I’ll see you next year!
