Initially planned as a small add-on to the site, it has now grown to a very popular part of it. The big blogging community around Power BI is a perfekt starting point for Power BI initiatives and guides you to many training material, ideas, Power BI dashboard templates, how-to guides and much more.
The Blog Portfolio is organized by orientation of the blogs (more technical or more end user oriented), popularity (measured by link popularity) and number of updates – larger bubbles show blog sites with frequent updates.
Additionally you can find symbols for podcasts and video channels as well as focus on special topics like DAX or PowerQuery.
Click here to open or download the Blog Portfolio as a PDF with clickable links to all blogs.
Important: The Blog Portfolio does not rate the quality of the blogs and there is no “good or bad” position in the portfolio! Less popular blog sites often fill niches or are just new in the Power BI eco system. Take your time to explore!
The Blog community is very international, although the typical language “spoken” in the blogs is English: 15 are coming from the US, 11 from Germany, followed by Australia (6), Netherlands (4) and Austria (4). Also in the list: Sri Lanka, UAR, Panama and Denmark!
We are continuously extending and improving the Blog directory, If you think a blog (or additional information) s missing comment in Linkedin or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Next on the list are further languages like Spanish, Russian or others. We are glad about the contribution of the community!
Last update V1.2 on 24th February: Added Data Pears, a quite new blog coming from Microsoft Cloud solution architect Mara Pereira. Very nice blog, see the valuable Tips & Tricks articles! Additionally, BI Elite has a new position with significantly better popularity – we calculate it based on both domain popularity and Youtube subscriptions and there was a mistake in the calculation. BI Elite has more than 30k subscribers on Youtube.
Last update V1.1 on 17th February: added Data Tale (English blog from Australia – our 6th from down under!), Data Unity (well done German Youtube video blog) and very warm welcome to our first blog in Turkish language “Power BI Istanbul“!
Special thanks to Alexander Fritz, Kathrin Borchert, Carlos Baboza, Lars Schreiber, Marcus Wegener, Michael Tenner, Vitali Burla and Klaus Birringer for their help in creating that list of Power BI blogs. All of them are experienced Power BI experts and contribute to the community!
And a big “Thank you” to our sponsors:
