I depend on only a few amazing blogs to keep my social media skills sharp.
Some of these I read daily. Others I check once or twice a week.
And yeah, I leave a lot of comments -- because it's a great way build relationships and to drive traffic to our website!
For this article, I set out to identify the blogs that are always on top of important topics in social media.
And I boiled it down to 13!
These blogs are my go-to resources for everything from researching new posts to working through a jam on Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook.
You may already follow some of these bloggers. But I recommend following them all, because I'm sure you'll find the articles just as valuable as I do.
