With all the changes happening in networking technology, designing and managing networks is challenging, to say the least. There are so many trends altering the networking landscape – network automation, intent-based networking, software-defined WAN, to name a few – that it can be hard to keep up. It's especially difficult when you're busy running a complex network.

Networking blogs are one way to keep tabs on important networking trends, and also get tips to help with your day-to-day work. Fortunately, the networking community boasts a number of practitioners who blog about technology trends, share their experiences, and provide practical advice. You can find step-by-step guides on network troubleshooting, learn about network programmability, and get insight on networking products. You'll read valuable perspective, often with a healthy dose of skepticism.

If you've been in networking for a while, you're likely already familiar with the work of legendary networking blogger Greg Ferro, and the blogs of other thought leaders such as Ethan Banks and Ivan Pepelnjak. We highlighted many of these networking blogs three years ago. Ages ago, right?

That's why we put together another list of networking blogs you should follow. This update features well-known practitioners, but also a few up-and-comers. Our collection includes some of the more prolific and thought-provoking networking bloggers you'll find on the web today. Keep in mind it's just a sample of the good blogging that goes on in the networking community. If your favorites are missing, please add them in the comments below.
