Blogs from the Social Media Fishbowl

A few days ago, I was asking around on Twitter and Plurk about social media people's must-read blogs. After a good influx of responses and requests to share, here we go! I'm happy that while some of these are old favorites, a few were new to me. And of course this is not an exhaustive list and isn't meant to be definitive; these simply represent the 25 that were mentioned most often (most more than once).

Some focus on PR, some on marketing, some on a blend of everything. Please add yours in the comments, too.



1. The Buzz Bin by Geoff Livingston

2. Chaos Scenario by Cam Beck, John Herrington and Paul Herring

3. Church of the Customer Blog by Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba

4. ChrisBrogan.com

5. Communication Overtones by Kami Huyse

6. Conversation Agent by Valeria Maltoni

7. Diva Marketing Blog by Toby Bloomberg

8. Every Dot Connects (multiple authors)

9. For Immediate Release by Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson

10. Influential Marketing Blog by Rohit Bhargava

11. Logic+Emotion by David Armano

12. Marketing Profs Daily Fix (multiple authors)

13. Mashable (multiple authors)

14. /Message by Stowe Boyd

15. Micropersuasion by Steve Rubel

16. Online Marketing Blog by Lee Odden

17. PR Squared by Todd Defren

18. PR 2.0 by Brian Solis

19. Read Write Web (multiple authors)

20. Social Media Explorer by Jason Falls

21. The Social Media Marketing Blog by Scott Monty

22. Social Media Today (multiple authors)

23. Techipedia by Tamar Weinberg

24. The Viral Garden by Mack Collier

25. Web Strategy by Jeremiah Owyang

Like I said, I could easily extend this into a list of 100+, so please share in the comments what blogs are can't-miss for you!

Great list, Amber!

One that isn't on that that has great content is Maki's blog - www.doshdosh.com

Toby said...

Many thanks for including Diva Marketing and for the time it took to put the list together. There are so many good reads with more coming online every day. I expect one could spend eons identifying and reviewing just the biz blogs .. hmm .. wonder if that could turn into a paying gig ;-)

Amber Naslund said...

@Sonny that's a great one, too.

@Toby You're so welcome! I know my feed reader is bursting at the seams! If you figure out how to get paid for that kinda research, you GO! ;)

C. B. Whittemore said...

Amber, excellent list. Thanks for sharing [and plurking about it]!

TDefren said...

Happy to make the list! Thanks.

Ann Handley said...

Thanks, Amber. I love the Daily Fix group -- so I appreciate you giving them (us) air time here!

Jason Falls said...

I got mentioned more than once? Wow. Thanks for including me. Or just putting me on there to make me feel good. Heh. Nice list. Proud to say I subscribe and regularly read all of them, as well as yours.

Amber Naslund said...

@CB more than welcome! I hope it's helpful.

@Ann, @Todd, and @Jason, thanks all for saying hello. You're all great resources to me and I'm glad to point a few more people in your direction so they can learn half as much as I have.

Thank you for the shout, Amber. I agree with Sonny, Maki at DoshDosh is good.
