Update: here’s a more recent list of 40 superb psychology blogs.
Best all-round performer
Some blogs focus on quite specific areas, others are more general. Top of the accessible general blogs is MindHacks which manages to cover a wide range of areas, often in detail. This is really the best all-round performer the psychology blog-o-sphere has to offer. Largely written by a psychology PhD now training in clinical psychology – MindHacks is frequently updated, sometimes two or three times a day. This is your first stop.

Best cognitive psychology blog
Two joint winners in this category. First is Cognitive Daily which makes complicated topics in cognitive psychology look easy. Great writing, loads of content, a knowledgeable audience of commenters and graphs you can understand. It’s frequently updated and wide-ranging but mostly within cognitive psychology. Co-produced by a Professor of psychology.
Best multimedia psychology blog
Channel N has links to all kinds of audio and video files.
Best psychiatrist’s blog
While the tag line of The Last Psychiatrist is ‘depression, bipolar, suicide, drug companies and medications’, this blog certainly won’t cause any of these conditions. Well, at worst you’ll want to start your own drug company. This provides a much needed critical approach to all the above topics and more. Less frequent but longer posting. Recommended.
