My Favorite Blogging and Social Media Bloggers
One of the questions that comes up on occasion both from clients and peers is, "who do you read?" When you're in an industry that's as dynamic and wide-ranging as social media and internet marketing, reading other people's blogs and articles is the only way to keep up. I use Feedly and HootSuite to follow industry blogs and press releases, as well as a number of key writers who are shedding light on new techniques and methods for using content and social media to connect with and engage other people.
These are the people that I learn from daily, and I suggest you do the same.

You may feel free to vote up any of these writers that you've read yourself and enjoy.
