Top 31 Digital Nomad Blogs to Inspire You

Let’s be honest unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you’ll probably be aware of the digital nomad way of living and working. Essentially, if you combine remote working or the self-employed digital entrepreneur life with backpacking vibes, you’re not far off what a digital nomad is. 

Put simply, a digital nomad is someone who travels around the world and works from their computer or laptop to support themselves. It’s not one big holiday, it’s not quite becoming a full expat, but it’s a more flexible place in between. 

So, if you’re thinking about becoming a digital nomad but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. I’ve collated the top 31 digital nomad blogs to inspire you and help make your digital nomad dreams a reality!

Top Digital Nomad Blogs to Follow

After all, one of the major perks of being a digital nomad is the flexibility to explore new and exciting places after you clock off from work!

4. Wandering Earl

Wandering Earl is a super cool blog that’s run by a guy called…Derek? So, Earl is Derek’s middle name and apparently, it sounded better than Wandering Derek – I’ll leave that with you.

Regardless of the name, Derek left for a three-month backpacking trip around Southeast Asia and then never came home. That was 20 years ago. It’s insane.
