The Buffalo Bloggers You Need to Know

mk7d-4ucfmg-florian-klauerBlogging continues to be on the up throughout the world- whether it be fashion, food, or lifestyle. There is something exciting about getting a peek in to other people’s lives and stories that connect, teach, and inspire us. Buffalo has a small but mighty pack of bloggers that do just that- and every single one is having a love affair with our city.

We compiled a list of favorites (and even some recently discovered ones, in a random order) of the Buffalo Bloggers YOU need to be following.

Yeah! Buffalo

People & Places of BUF: The team of Beth & Sam Insalaco head up this Buffalo blog that focuses on the people, places, things, projects, and passions that Buffalonians are doing in and for our city. The blog and Instagram highlight positive and passionate businesses and people that are doing great things in our community.

Step Out Buffalo

Food & Things To Do: Well, obviously! The go-to social media space to learn all things Buffalo- what’s going on, where to eat, what to do…we were pretty pumped to see this blog start kicking butt a couple years ago. A team of step-outters compile the best of the best for you and make it pretty darn accessible to find out what to do in WNY.

Best Pics: Mike Shriver has a Buffalo photo blog with his inspiring work, including cityscapes, aerial shots, urban views, and landscapes. You can purchase shots on his site, too. A West Seneca native, Mike began his journey of photography a few years ago and now documents the city’s daily transformation.

Buffalo Highlights: Our gal pal Taylor Griffith gives you an inside peek in to her life, living space, fashion, and travels on her lifestyle blog. From local love to places abroad, Taylor and her bf Jacob share their adventures and inspirations that ultimately make you want to hang with them on any given day.



Visit Buffalo Niagara

Buffalo Niagara 101: Well, of course! The guide for the locals and the visitors to WNY! VBN has ‘everything Buffalo’ you could possibly want- where to get your chicken wings, beef on weck, pizza- plus architecture and places to shop around WNY. Our favorite is their Facebook videos with Brian Hayden, who goes LIVE! at local places to interview business owners and fun Buffalo things such as Vidler’s, Cave of the Winds, and how sponge candy is made.

Rise Collaborative

Community Impact: Marketing masters Kevin, Drew, and Bridget began Rise in order to promote small biz, artists, nonprofits, and advocacy groups in Buffalo to highlight those who are making a big impact in WNY. Now with a paper publication, they cultivate culture for the area and recently designed a winter hat with their moniker. Each hat purchased led way to one hat being donated to the International Institute of Buffalo for new immigrant refugees landing in Buffalo. We dig that.

Lifestyle Couple: Scott & Al recently moved back to WNY (Medina) from D.C., where they originally began their blog that highlights their dating life, travels, foodie experiences, and everything in between. Their blog gives you a view inside their new chapter here in NY and includes dating tips, their new farm home, and places to stay in Buffalo as a getaway.



Buffalo Dandy

The Gentlemen’s Guide: This one is for the boys. Buffalo Dandy shows you how to be your dapper best- pairing attire, where to buy, private shopping events…Beau appreciates this since he is suited up every day and is an avid man of style himself. The other element that we dig is Dandy’s Instagram which frequently highlights what vinyl and cocktail or beer he is having at any given occasion.



Nickel City Pretty

Fashion Blogger: This one is for the girls. Lindsay (what a great name!) shows us her personal fashion with backdrops of Buffalo scenes to top off the look. From beauty looks, scoring a good deal, and checking out local WNY beauty spots- NCP is a fun follow for those looking to up their style.



Honorary Bloggers:

Buffalo Eats


Now ‘retired’, Buffalo Eats is still a main go-to for anyone looking to get a review on a restaurant in WNY. Dedicated lists help you search by neighborhood when you’re feeling ‘lost’ on where to grab a bite to eat. You can find 1/2 of Buffalo Eats guest blogging for VBN- keeping us in the loop on what to eat! You can still read up on highlighted taste treats on their blog including archived Grain of Salt podcast that features local foodie talent. ***UPDATE- They’re baaaaackkkkk!!!

    Looking to create my own blog and would love to talk with someone about their experiences. My idea is not specific to buffalo, and I’m not a tech savvy person. However, I’m learning to rediscover myself from some down times. I’d just like to speak to someone about the blogging concept in general. I am in the gathering phase right now.
