Building blogs

Building magazine, the glossy weekly bible for the UK construction industry, has a feature this week on blogging (I would link to the feature but it doesn’t currently appear on Building‘s website and you’d probably have to register to see it any way). In addition to Building’s own bloggers, it includes links to what it describes as the “Top 5 construction blogs”:

  • The Gutter – a popular, anonymous US ‘underground’ construction blog – “it often focuses on sex and drugs” (probably why it’s popular!)
  • Building Trade – UK blog with news on products and “diatribes on issues like health and safety and profit margins”
  • Surveyor in the Docks – diary of a surveyor, Cliff L’Aimable working in the east end of London, with “unusual, amusing or just plain surreal events of his working life”
  • Life Without Buildings – “to do with all things architectural” set up by an architect graduate, Californian Jimmy Stamp
  • The Rat and Mouse – London property blog covering housing and sales news.

With this mainstream publicity for blogs, will we now see an explosion in construction blogging in the UK?

  1. Thanks for the mention. I’m sure that over time, blogging will become more significant in the construction industry.
