#1 31 Must-Read Social Media Blog Posts [Social Media Examiner]
Cindy King and Social Media Examiner have done it again. Not just because they have produced yet another list post about great posts (this should keep me busy!)….but because they asked their own writers to contribute their Top Blog Post of the Year. Now that, I love. Crowd Sourcing your own writing team is something that Social Media Examiner does well, with everything from Prediction Posts to List Posts. Such clever “social proof”. In this case, a simple article recommendation from each writer has really brought together a mixed bag that is full of stellar posts. Take your time enjoying this one – I am sure it will be one to bookmark!
#2 13 Awesome Articles Every Online Marketer Must Read [The Online Marketing Rookie]
This post grabbed my attention initially because of being alerted to #10 (my guest post on Amy Porterfield’s site). So I was instantly chuffed. That aside, there are some great posts in here by the Online Marketing Rookie, Lillian Leon. I like this post because it has a mix of “must-read” posts – including infographic, how-to and list posts. The 13 Awesome articles touch on everything from tools to psychology to Pinterest, to SEO, blogging and wordpress plugins. A real mixed bag, and worth bookmarking or saving in Evernote! PS Being a Copywriter in a former life, the Online Marketing Rookie is definitely passing “Rookie” status very quickly, with some excellent blog posts. I would highly recommend scrolling through some of her own posts on the site.
