10 Marketing Blogs That Will Make Your Job Easier

Business Insider once declared marketing degrees to be one of the most useless graduate degrees out there. Statistically, those with graduate degrees just don’t see enough of a salary increase to warrant the cost of the investment. Does that mean there isn’t a need for marketers in the business world? Of course not! Marketing is a field where you can learn your way around through online tutorials, internships, and self-teaching. You’re not performing brain surgery, after all.

Thanks for your consistent stream of fascinating posts. I’m honored that you’d consider using our blog as an example! THANK YOU for all you do!

    You’re welcome, Diana! I get cranky in the mornings if I don’t get my dose of Bit Rebels…seriously. A couple of us regularly start conversations with: “Did you see that [insert creative topic here] article on Bit Rebels today?” 🙂 Your comment means a lot to me. Thank you guys (and gals) for rocking so hard!

    The Oatmeal makes me laugh every time. See what I meant when I said you had to look for yourself? It’s tough to put that kind of awesomery into words. Reading Britannica Blog makes my brain happy; I highly recommend subscribing so you don’t miss anything! I think you’d really like IttyBiz as well…

    And of course I know you’re a fan of Bit Rebels…we’re always OMGing about their posts! 😉

    Any hope I had of having any free time will now be filled reading these blogs.

    One blog I’d like to add is http://www.engadget.com. It’s an easy read and always talks about the latest tech news and gadgetry.

    Very good post. I will definitely be taking a look at some of these blogs later tonight!

    I recently wrote a list of 10 blogs I find very interesting and insightful if you would like to check that out – http://bit.ly/UVn7WQ

  11. Joanna Rapoza

    Thank you for a tremendously helpful and insightful post. I never cease to be amazed at the number of wonderful blogs out there, and you helped me in my search for them.

    My blog, which is about to turn two years old, was inspired by the sudden death of my neighbor (I figured, I’d better get going with this – I am now the age he was when he died, 51). It’s a labor of love consisting mostly of comedic writings and drawings, and I’d be honored if you or your readers were able to check it out. My thirteen year old son says it’s consistently entertaining, though not in those exact words.

    Thank you, and happy new year.
