Top Local Bloggers In South Florida

September 22, 2014 8:00 AM

South Florida was one of the last major metropolitan areas to jump aboard the blogging train when blogs began to get noticed several years ago. Despite the late participation, South Florida is thankfully now home to a number of really impressive blogs. These bloggers are some of the best talents behind local blogs for reasons ranging from witty writing styles and impressive photography to area insider information and plenty of personality. They blog on topics that include culture, food, lifestyle and fashion and there is something to capture the attention of just about any blog lover.


Patricia Guarch Wise

Patricia’s Miami Nice blog offers savvy insights into Miami culture, events, places and people. The magazine-style blog is easy to read, attractive and easy to navigate with a fresh and modern design. Her blog is hip and edgy and yet relevant and relatable to just about anyone going to visit the Magic City as well as, of course, area locals. If anyone can navigate people through the South Florida scene it would be Wise. She was born and raised in Miami and her incredible life experiences include an NYU education, internships at companies like Nylon Magazine, Wilhelmina Models and Chanel and she specializes in digital brand consulting for such organizations as Coral Gables Business Improvement District and the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau.


Food For Thought

The list of top local bloggers in the area includes an exception in the form of an anonymous blogger. He or she desires to remain nameless, citing the reasons as not wanting to distract from his/her day job achievements as well as not to be spotted on dining trips out. Whoever does write Food For Thought offers readers intelligent and detailed reviews about dining events, experiences and meals at South Florida restaurants and dining venues. The opinion-based reviews seem to be unbiased enough and they’re clearly the expression of someone who knows food well and truly enjoys to dine.


Robyn Lindars

Another food blogger makes the list of top local bloggers, Robyn Lindars of Grill Grrrl. The blog is, of course, about grilled meals and barbecuing and Lindars takes a healthy approach to it, offering nutritious recipes and meal ideas focusing on the use of lean meats. Lindars is literally a blogging expert and she represents the area well by incorporating influences from Florida and the Caribbean. Her writing style is warm and friendly while still portraying her as a clear authority on food. Videos, giveaways and other extras make the blog exciting and never predictable.
