Today’s installment covers a wide range of content providers and includes folks that I strongly believe are amongst a select group that always have something worth reading and cover a variety of topics both in terms of technology in general (Digital Tonto) and more tightly focused on marketing.
Starting first with Digital Tonto, I’ve been a follower of Greg Satell for nearly two years now and Greg is someone that I’d classify as practitioner of what I like to call ‘long-form’ blogging. Greg always has an interesting take on events in the technology space, but also writes in a truly thoughtful manner that I’m certain you’ll find compelling. I’ve enclosed a link to Greg’s blog, but also included a terrific ‘introduction’ to his writing…. His Top Posts of 2012 which clearly outline why he made this week’s edition.
Our second entry in today’s edition - Marjorie Clayman – is what I call my ‘multipurpose’ blogger whom I pay consistent visits to. I’ve followed Margie consistently for over a year (I’ve found the best way to follow here is to subscribe to her by email) and while not producing in the volume that you’ll get from the likes of Greg Satell (Greg publishes almost every day which I find amazing), the quality of writing coupled with compelling topics will have you doing what I find myself doing… looking very much forward to her next posting.
Closing out today’s edition of the Best of the Blogosphere is Jim Dougherty – who is frankly who I aspire to when I ‘grow up’ as a blogger. Considered to be one of the Top 50 bloggers on the Web according to Kred (who I happen to consider a seriously credible source), Jim’s blog combines not only original thoughts and writing, but also has introduced me to a wide range of additional writers/bloggers through a carefully managed and crafted guest blogging program. Jim’s primary focus for both his own content and that of guest bloggers is social media, but as many of you who are reading this know… no one platform or technology is sufficient to satisfy an advertisers needs…. So a full understanding of social media and its opportunities is more critical than ever. Simply put, Jim’s blog is among the first places I start my day and I’d encourage you to do the same.
I hope that you find today’s edition of 'Best of the Blogosphere' useful, but would love to hear from you about folks that you follow (either bloggers or via Twitter and other social platforms) and who you find contribute to your understanding… of the ever changing world of technology and marketing.
