4 Marketing Blogs I Missed

Every once in a while, I try to take stock of my current blog repository or RSS aggregator that helps me track the latest-and-greatest marketing blogs that are mushrooming across the blogosphere. Mack has a serialized post on some of the blogs that catch his eye in a post called Viral Community News that I always look forward to. Definitely helped expand my sources of reading marketing content.

Anyways, it’s been a while since I tracked the recent ones and I noticed that I’ve missed a few entertaining blogs. I feel the following are definitely worth adding to my Wizz RSS Reader (a great Firefox 2 extension) and thought I’ll share them with you — here are 4 new marketing blogs that I wish I’d started reading earlier :

#1: Media Guerrilla — A blog dedicated to tech PR, new media and marketing
Authored and published by Mike Manuel since 2005, Media Guerrilla was twice voted “Best PR Blog” by Marketing Sherpa and the Business Blog Awards. Recently, Mike began co-organizing “Third Thursday“, a regular industry meet up for Bay Area PR and marketing professionals interested in social media.

For those of you in the Bay Area and interested in attending, please check out the meetup site here. Now, that is definitely interesting and something I should check out. I wonder if Jeremiah attends these events. Speaking of Jeremiah, check out some of his recent coverage of social media events, here and here.

#2: Adverblog —  Online since May 2003, “Adverblog is a daily destination for anyone with a passion for advertising and new media marketing”. Originally started by Martina Zavagno, “working during the day, and blogging at night”, it has since then expanded to include many well-known bloggers from across Europe, as Martina has slowed down her participation. Listed below are contributors:

#3: Online Marketing Blog — Posts by Lee Odden, CEO of TopRank Online Marketing, “an agency that integrates natural search optimization with social media marketing and new media public relations to help clients increase sales and brand visibility online”.

The site is a comprehensive repository of info and tidbits on latest news, events, links, and useful how-to’s on online marketing, new media, pr, etc…

#4: Marketing begins at Home — Started by David Parmet, a public relations professional who’s been at this (meaning PR) since the early 1990s, this blog may be of some interest for the PR readers. Case in Point: this recent post on the Edelman brouhahah that reminded me of some of my Smackdown posts.

David has an agency background and his work with English Cut (one of his clients) was featured in Robert Scoble and Shel Israel’s book Naked Conversations : How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers.


Some of you may have noticed the reduced number of posts on this blog for sometime. Well, I wasn’t feeling too well last week but plans are to return to happy times with regular posts on the blog from Mon – Thur and again once during the weekend. I’ll try to stick to the schedule. I look forward to your participation.

Happy Reading!

    Hey Mike,

    I stumbled upon your blog via TechMeme, if I’m not mistaken. Keep blogging… and participating.

    I look forward to seeing you at some future “Third Thursday” event. When’s the next one?

    Hey there.. thanks for the kudos. I’m on the other side (aka, the East Coast) so i don’t get to make Third Thursdays…

    But nice to meet you just the same.

    Hi David,

    Definitely. Please let me know if you’re in the Bay Area. We can plan a meetup.
