Fantastic list of interesting project management blogs. i learnt a lot , thank you so much for sharing 🙂

A great resource for all those interested in project, programme and portfolio management, leadership and strategic planning:
Hey, great list of top PM blogs!
We have a lot of the same tastes; I wonder how these, above the others, made the list? Brand recognition? Domain authority? People you know? These are all big players so I’m not surprised they made an appearance.
Specifically, I’m glad you included Elizabeth Harrin and Kailash Awati’s sites. They’re both fantastically useful to project managers and I reference them regularly. Naturally I’d love it if you included the Capterra project management site too, but that may be asking for too much. 🙂
I recently wrote a roundup of the top blogs for PMs and used update frequency, user friendliness, domain authority, specialization, and prevalence of “useful” content to filter through. Feel free to take a look; I came up with a few of the same and a few different sites than you.
Thanks a lot for your keen interest. The list was not on any specific basis as you mentioned but a random list. Moroever, our community representative will contact you soon for more detailed discussion on this.
This is a great blog listing. Ours, blog.greenprojectmanagement.org has a following of over 76,000 and is unique as it focuses on sustainability in projects. Any chance of considering it?
Thank you Joel for the appreciation. I have forwarded your request. Our community representative will contact you soon.
Thanks for this list of project management blogs! It’s always helpful to learn from others about their successes and failures with project management. You can learn from their experiences and apply it to your own. It’s important for anyone in the PM role to keep up with what the latest obstacles are and how to fine tune your PM skills. These blogs are a great way to do so!
Thanks alot Yash. You are absolutely right. These blogs are a great source of knowledge. Moreover, you get information about the latest tools being used by project managers worldwide. They may help you in project planning, project execution, cost estimation, resource management,etc. TaskQue itself is a team collaboration tool which helps in effective resource management. I suggest you and all the managers to try every tool and select the one which suits your needs.
Thanks Sarmad, that’s informative. It might be useful to consider agile focused blogs in the future as many companies desire more ‘agility’ and have increasingly mixed/hybrid delivery models.
Thanks for including my blog in this list!
Your blog is unique and informative. We are pleased to include it on our list.
I’m the CEO of project-management.com I see you took our image for the #1 position, but you point on projectmanagement.com instead of project-management.com
We are a very popular blog for project management. Is it possible to be included in your top 10? Maybe you could replace Brad Egeland’ blog by us? Brad Egeland website only contains partial articles with external links to the full articles. I know this site and it’s not very well structured.
Anyway, let me know what you can do.
Thanks alot for pointing out the editorial mistake. I have sent you a detailed email about the possibility of your blog’s inclusion in the specific list.
