Blogs are one of the best free resources to help you grow into a stronger internet marketer. Spending a little time in the blogospere on a regular basis is an essential part of being a successful blogger or internet marketer.
Who has time to learn everything just from our own failures and experiences? Fast forward the learning curve by getting insight from people who have done and been there firsthand sharing their own success and failures online.
The top 10 internet marketing blogs that I listed below includes some of the most authoritative and successful bloggers in the industry. Not only do they provide quality content on a consistent basis, but also include insightful posts that can’t be found anywhere else.
But Let Me B Frank, the first list of blogs are pioneers of blogging and internet marketing and the very first blogs that I and everyone else online started to read when we were newbs. But in all HONESTY, I don’t even visit them anymore. Most of them have grown too large and mostly rely on guest posts and hired 3rd party writers. So, basically the quality and insightful personal posts are obsolete. Unless you dig deep into their archives.
Go litter further down the list below for more personable blogs that are current and filled with valuable information that I visit regularly.
problogger.net – This blog is filled with tips, tutorials and insight from the pioneer of blogging. Darren Rowse, (problogger) one of the most successful bloggers out there is very helpful and genuine. You’ll find posts on everything from beginning a blog to having the most successful blog online just by digging through Problogger’s archives, which is also where you’ll find his best content. Most of his posts are very elaborate and personally written from Darren Rowse himself. Until just recently, guest bloggers write a majority of his posts.
copyblogger.com – Unless you’re already a gifted technical genius at copywriting, then this is one blog that continually produces content that can improve your writing. I learned once I got into internet marketing that being able to write great copy is practically everything. But it doesn’t come easily for everyone and takes quite a bit of skill. You’ll find some of the most brilliant writers sharing insider information and tips to help improve your copy writing on a daily basis at Copyblogger.
