Like us, there are a lot of people out there talking about the trucking industry. Some are providing useful information, others are just sharing their opinion. However, there are a few trucking blogs that stand out above the rest. We tracked down our favorite trucking “internet-personalities” whom we personally feel best capture life on the road and post frequently. Here (in alphabetical order, because we could not dare to definitively rank these bloggers/vloggers (video bloggers) we’ve listed our go-to who also happen to be truck drivers. We’ll leave it up to you to decide your favorites, but these are the professional driver bloggers you should definitely know about.

5 Trucking Blogs You Should Be Reading

1. Trucker Dump

The tagline for the Trucker Dump podcast/blog says it all: One driver’s insights and sometimes humorous views of truck driving and the trucking industry… and anything else he feels like dumpin’ on ya. His name – Todd McCann.

This blog/podcast is designed for anyone interested in trucking, whether that be current truckers, new drivers, prospective drivers or even non-truckers who are simply just interested in the trucking lifestyle. McCann’s goal is to give people a view into trucking so that they might think twice before flipping that trucker the double-bird as you drive stupid around their truck. And as you can see, he takes himself very, very seriously.

McCann is a 17-year trucking veteran and the author and creator of the Trucker Dump podcast/blog, which launched in 2009. He describes himself as a nonjudgmental Christian, an awesome uncle, and a 20-year-long husband to The Evil Overlord, which is a name she knows and willingly accepts… mostly because it’s true, he claims.

2. The “Dancing Trucker”

John Drury is a driver from Cincinnati with a claim-to-fame from dancing his way into losing about 100 pounds. Although he does not keep daily written trucking blogs, he keeps active with his followers on Twitter and YouTube. The reason we chose him for this list is his dedication to fitness. His video channel has fitness routines he puts together himself that serves as inspiration for truckers everywhere. Keeping active is a major issue, especially for truck drivers who are known for sedentary lifestyles. Plus, he’s chatted with us on our own podcast before, and continues to provide healthy resources for truck drivers!

3. Daniel Bridger

“I’ve been posting on my blog for couple years now, mainly as a hobby, trying to provide interesting reading material that helps and entertains drivers,” says Daniel Bridger who has been operating Daniel S Bridger’s Trucking Blog since 2012. As a truck driver with about 33 years of experience under his belt, Daniel reaches out to lend some of his knowledge to fellow drivers, especially younger ones. More recently he’s been sharing articles he thinks other drivers can relate to.

4. The Healthy Trucker

“Being “healthy” has different meanings for different people, but every truck driver has room to be “healthier” in some area of life. No matter what your fitness level or goals might be, The Healthy Trucker has something for everyone, from workouts you can do on the road to monthly health challenges to hold you accountable.

The Healthy Trucker originated in September 2012 during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. According to them, their mission is simple–to provide realistic advice on how to live a happier, healthier life as a truck driver.

5. Trucker Josh

Trucker Josh chronicles his career daily on his YouTube channel. Although he falls more into the category of trucking vlogs than trucking blogs, we love him! For years Josh and his trusty pooch, Diesel, have been posting the “Trucking Life” videos and gaining a big fan-base. Trucker Josh’s page has over 94,000 followers! Vlogging has become “who he is” now, he says.

According to Josh, “Love life, stay positive, and keep trucking! You can follow ‘My Trucking Life’ daily on YouTube.”

You can also follow him on twitter.
