9 Must-Read Blogs (You Might Not Even Know About)

When you’re looking for industry news and best practices information, where do you turn?

If you’re like most marketers, the answer is industry blogs. But with more than two million blog posts written every day, it can be hard to separate the blogs that are worth reading from the ones that aren’t. Back in 2012, we published an infographic featuring a list of must-read blogs to help our readers find quality blogs that appealed to their interests. Two years later, we’re back with another list — this one featuring nine blogs that we think are worth checking out (even if you haven’t heard of them).

From more Reddit-style sites to traditional blogs, you’ll find something that meets your reading style.
