Savvy Speaks: Bloggers We LOVE

Savvy Speaks: Bloggers We LOVE

Mark Schaefer of {grow} is already one of our favorite bloggers. So when he started a movement for Valentine's Day called "Have you hugged your blogger today?" we couldn't help but jump on the love train. Here are some of our favorite bloggers - who are yours?




Some of my favorites writers write about writing 


Jonathan Fields - 

Love his optimistic, you can do anything message. He gives readers tools and constant inspiration in order to fully participate in life on his blog. 


New Hampshire Writers' Network

Although I am a member of this group, it's the collective wisdom of seasoned writers that makes me love this blog. Don't have time to attend a writing program? Go over to that blog and learn a thing or two about the craft and business of writing. 



As long as we're on writing blogs, Larry Brooks over at Storyfix has done more for my writing than anyone else. He proposes that all stories follow a certain formula (there are exceptions of course) and that if you follow that formula, your story will work.


Not only is it fascinating reading but after reading Storyfix, you will never read another book without also seeing the key components. 





Anyone who follows me on Twitter won't be surprised by the three names below -- these three bloggers consistently churn out posts exploring B2B marketing from every angle.


This is too hard! 

I read a LOT of marketing blogs & I LOVE a lot of the bloggers behind those blogs - their insights, their sense of humor, their work ethic. To make me choose only a few is just plain mean, but I'll try to do my best. (Hopefully without sounding like a total groupie.)

Mark Schaefer of {grow} - the guy behind this love fest. I love Mark for his sense of adventure and experientation, his honesty, his ability to laugh at himself, and his habit of asking really good questions. I have a huge amount of admiration for the way he has built up his blog community. That's how you do it, people. @markwschaefer

James Chartrand of Men With Pens - James is not considered a B2B blog, per se, but her spot-on writing advice can help any business writer do a better job. I also love her story, her chutzpah, and the fact that she's a genuinely nice human being. Nice counts.  @MenWithPens

Marcus Sheridan at The Sales Lion - Marcus is another down-to-earth business blogger who isn't afraid to call it like he sees it. He has a great sense of humor, is very approachable, and takes the time to get into the nitty-gritty details of his topics. @TheSalesLion

The Team at Copyblogger - Though also not a hardcore B2B blog, this site is brimming with solid, instantly usable advice that any marketer can use. Sometimes, I think I ought to star every one of their posts in my Google Reader. It would save me time. @copyblogger @SoniaSimone @JonMorrow ... and many more!



The Savvy Sisters

Awww! Yes it's true. The other Savvy Sisters constantly impress me with their fabulous B2B insights, constant support and willingness to jump in when another sister is down (flu, childbirth, tornadoes, swim meets, you name it, we've been through it...)

Big hugs to all of you!


Some Group Hugs and Some Solo Hugs!

As a member of a Group Blog I know that it takes a special chemistry and effort to produce quality content week after week as a collaborative effort while still maintaining a single identity so for that I give hugs to:

Kuno Creative

Base One Beyond Blog

For solo bloggers who produce so much amazing content I almost can’t wrap my brain around how they manage it hugs go to:

Web Strategy by Jeremiah Owyang

The Brand Builder Blog by Oliver Blanchard

And I feel the need to share one fun blog started by my personal friend Jen.  I have known her for years and totally supported her last year when she decided to start putting her hilarious musings previously heard only by friends out into cyberspace.  She was recently picked up by the Huffington Post and BlogHer network! The title is self explanatory and not for the faint of heart!

People I Want to Punch In the Throat


Which bloggers do YOU love?

What makes them so special?

Be sure to show them some Tweet love this week!

This makes you less believable, and some may still be on the fence about Lew Rockwell after reading your emotional arguments and personal attacks.
