Congratulations to all of the bloggers who have made the Oh You Lucky Bloggers 50 list. This is our new monthly chart of the top travel and lifestyle blogs about good stuff which we’ll publish here on the lastminute.com blog.
There is something very special about discovering a blog that has the extra good stuff factor – for me it’s not just a window into another world which I want to know more about, it’s about inspiration too.
We’ve been on a 2.0 odyssey to seek out the best in travel and lifestyle, which is why you’ll find blogs about restaurants, theatre, spa, music and comedy featured here as well as London, Manchester and Birmingham which are all places brimming with social media.
In recognition of these great blogs, it’s time for you to put your feet up, grab a coffee and enjoy the journey – each of these blogs has been chosen for it’s unique personality and tantalising content, so it’s going to be a great read.

Do you want to know how we reached our conclusions? Well, there have been a few tinkerings with google page rank, Alexa and some profiling on twitter but that’s the boring stuff. What we’ve also rated these blogs on is their ability to deliver compelling and engaging content about their chosen subject areas within the travel and lifestyle arena.
