We love blogs – we love the community they create, the knowledge given so freely on them, and how darn easy they are to read on your cell phone while on the go. So, we’re here to share 7 of our favorite blogs, ranging from business, weddings, and all the way to just good ol’ motivation, that you should be reading as an entrepreneur. We’re also going to share with you how you can keep up with all of them easily! Enjoy!
If you can’t go to Wedding Wire EDU in DC, you at least have to frequent their Pro Blog. Seriously, do yourself a favor. We personally think WeddingWire is one of the most innovative wedding industry businesses out there, always on the cutting edge. This is THE blog for wedding industry professionals.
Hootsuite, as you probably know from our past post about social scheduling, is a social management tool. They also run this super helpful blog, where their byline is “Social media strategy, advice, and tips you can use—baked fresh, several times a day”. If that doesn’t catch you, we don’t know what will.
Contently, as you can probably guess, is all about content – but not just any content, content for freelancers. They actually sell software and services, but blog simply to help, with a “mission to build a better media world”. They have three publications that you can read about on their site, but our favorite two are The Freelancer and The Content Strategist.
Harvard Business Review
Everyone knows the smartest of the smart go to Harvard. Brilliant minds blogging about business? We don’t think there needs much more convincing to visit this blog.
Where is the one place online that all professionals are, whether they actually use the social site or not? Linked in. So, as a professional, why not be a follower of their blog and not just a a silent social profile? They’ve got some great content, like articles on how to manage your team, communication, and more.
If you haven’t heard of Alan, he’s a speaker who frequents wedding and event conferences to share his business advice. He’s attentive and intelligent, two things we should all strive to be more of. If you can’t make it out to one of his speaking events, you’ve always got his blog! (We’ve heard him speak more than once and can testify!)
Wonderlass is a colorful, straight forward blog by Allison all about how to “embrace your inner weird to grow your blog and business”. Don’t you want to let loose your inner weirdo?
