Nashville’s Bloggers: Guide to the Most Influential Nashville Bloggers

This is a guide to Nashville blogging rockstars. While I have weird feelings about celebrity and perhaps even weirder things about internet celebrity, I thought this might be a helpful guide for those getting introduced to the Nashville blogging scene. If I leave someone off the list, I’m genuinely sorry…I wasn’t able to name all 250-350 bloggers….but you can drop your favorites in the comments.

Rex Hammock’s Blog– CEO of local publishing company in the Nashville area, Hammock Publishing. Rex is also a bit of a Nashville photo blogger.

Jaxn– Startup executive and entrepreneur for Stat Zen and URL Zen. Jackson’s company was featured at Tech Crunch 50, a conference of the most influential and interesting tech and new media startups.

Dr. Jeff Cornwall– Professor at Belmont and editor and chief of the Entrepreneurial Mind.

Pete Wilson– at pastor at Cross Point Church at Without Wax. Pete’s blog feature features great sermon bumpers as well as short entertaining video stories about life and growing up. Here is Adam and Eve explained by Pete’s kid.

Anne Jackson. Writer, blogger, designer, and church leadership person at Cross Point Church. She’s putting out a book very, very soon called Mad Church Disease on Zonderzan.

Michael Hyatt– Just some guy. Actually, he is the CEO at Thomas Nelson. So some guy with a plush office.

Matthew Paul TurnerChristian author, speaker, and funny guy. He is author of the Christian Culture Survival Guide, Hokey Pokey and a handful of other personal and thought provoking Christian books. You can see Matthew Turner on his Youtube channel, check out the feature about him on the God’s Mac podcast, or see the Cred Productions videos about Hokey Pokey. (please forgive me Matthew–I haven’t forgotten) His wife is also an occassional video blogger.

Dave Barnes. Hilarious guy, video blogger, and up and coming music guy . (quite possibly insane) Kanye West’s workout has nothing on the Dave Barnes workout. Or perhaps you’d like to see his video tour of Franklin, TN. For the Christmas season, this “Christmas Extravaganza” is probably the most appropriate and cheery.
