As part of my new time management ritual, I am cutting back on my time surfing the net, checking for updates on social media and reading blogs.

When you run a business such as mine, it's hard to find time to do everything that you want to do, at the level you would like to do it at. So, I spent some time this morning reading over 50 marketing blogs and was amazed at the varying levels of quality content.

There have been five (5) writers that have stood out in the past few years, and although it would be fair to say that they have the following of the most loyal marketing and entrepreneurial crowd, they also come with thought-leadership and strong opinions - which makes for good reading.

If you are anything like me, I bore easily and unless the information or in this case, marketing blogs, are easy to read, then I will simply click off.

This list is from marketing blogs that I do read, and respect. They are writers and currators that stand out from the crowd and are not simply copying someone else's marketing blog with a few text changes. Their material is original, thought provoking and relevant to any marketer or entrepreneur looking to increase their knowledge bank on what marketing techniques and case studies are in the marketplace that they can actually use as 'take home' value.
