Now featuring over 700 blogs!

Below is an incomplete list of Orthodox blogs. Although a few of them are run by official Orthodox Church entities, the majority offer individual opinions and thoughts on Orthodoxy. Many of the following individuals have formed something of an intertextual community, and one is likely to find them linking to many other Orthodox sites or blogs, and many interesting non-Orthodox ones as well. However, keep in mind that the authors do not speak for the Church, and the writers - even clergy - may have opinions different from the opinions of other Orthodox Christians.

Due to the nature of blogs and blogging, these sites have the tendency to come and go with no notice. For that reason, although effort is put forth to update this list, it is to be expected that some of the links will no longer work. Please also note - a number of blogs here may not have been updated in quite some time, yet they are included because they still may be of worth to readers. As links are posted, reasonable diligence has been made to make sure the blogs are written by people claiming to be Orthodox Christians, however, being the internet, people can claim just about anything. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that authors do not have opinions that differ from the Orthodox Church's, that the authors continue to consider themselves Orthodox, or that sites have not been "hijacked" with completely different material after being deleted by an Orthodox author. (This is particularly prevalent with Tumblr sites.)

Nevertheless, there are many people from all over the world who write about Orthodoxy and blogging often offers a window into their lives as Orthodox Christians. Other blogs focus on specific topics, some church-related, some not. Attempts have been made to organize this list into more manageable sections, however, as a page created by many people over a long period of time, categories are not necessarily strictly set.
