The world of content writing is constantly evolving, and you need to keep pace. What are the latest tools to market your content? Who is the hottest evangelist right now? What’s Google doing now with SEO?
Social media is a great way to keep your finger on the pulse, but not everyone wants to spend their days combing through their Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter feeds. Save time by going straight to the source, the blogs themselves.
Following the right blogs is the best way to stay current with the latest design trends, news, and innovation. There’s certainly no time or need to follow every content and marketing blog out there; just the best ones.
Pro Tip: Streamline content from all the blogs you follow by using a simple aggregating tool. We recommend Feedly, a free service.
