Top Trucking Blogs That Every Trucker Should Follow
Reading trucking blogs can be both fun and educational, whether you're new to the trucking profession or simply want to stay up to date with current developments in the sector.
There are many people discussing about the trucking industry out there, just like us. Some are contributing important information, while others are simply expressing their views. There are, however, a few trucking blogs that stand out. We found our favorite trucking "online personalities" that, in our opinion, represent life on the road the best and update frequently. We've put together a list of our go-to bloggers/vloggers and most of them also happen to be truck drivers. We'll let you pick your favorites, but these are the professional driver bloggers to keep an eye on.
THE DANCING TRUCKER
John Drury is a Cincinnati-based driver who gained fame after dancing his way to a 100-pound weight loss. Despite the fact that he does not write daily trucking blogs, he maintains in touch with his followers on Twitter and YouTube. We chose him for this list because of his commitment to fitness. His YouTube channel features workout routines that he creates himself and acts as motivation for truckers all around the world. Keeping active is a huge challenge, particularly for truck drivers, who have a reputation for leading sedentary lives. He is a daily inspiration to lead a healthy lifestyle on and off the road.
On his YouTube channel, Trucker Josh documents his career on a daily basis. His posts are actually more trucking vlogs than trucking blogs. Josh and his faithful companion, Diesel, have been posting "Trucking Life" videos for years and have amassed a large following. Over 100,000 people have liked Trucker Josh's page! He claims that vlogging has now become "who he is."
"Love life, stay positive, and keep trucking!" says Josh. You can find 'My Trucking Life' on youtube for his daily vlogs or follow him on twitter.
“I’ve been posting on my blog for couple years now, mainly as a hobby, trying to provide interesting reading material that helps and entertains drivers,” says Daniel Bridger who has been building up Daniel S Bridger’s Trucking Blog since 2012. As a truck driver with around 33 years of experience, he reaches out to fellow drivers, especially younger ones, to share some of his wisdom. Recently, he's been distributing articles that he thinks other drivers will find useful so make sure not to miss out.
The Trucker Dump podcast/tagline blog's says it all: One driver's insights and sometimes humorous views on truck driving and the trucking industry... and whatever else he feels like dumping on you. Todd McCann is his name.
This blog/podcast is for everyone who is interested in trucking, whether they are current truckers, new drivers, potential drivers, or even non-truckers who want to learn more about the industry. McCann is a 17-year veteran of the trucking industry and the creator and host of the Trucker Dump podcast/blog, which debuted in 2009. He describes himself as a nonjudgmental Christian, an awesome uncle, and a 20-year-long husband to The Evil Overlord, a moniker she recognizes and accepts... mostly because he claims it's true.
Trailer Talk is unique in that its author, Tom Berg, is a journalist who covers the trucking sector. He talks about current events and subjects of interest in the trucking industry with humor and entertaining language, but he has never worked as a trucker. This might be intriguing because you'll get to see someone's perspective outside of the trucking industry and their thoughts on trucking-related things, making it a worthwhile trucking blog to follow.
