Our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson, has a birthday tomorrow. He LOVED, loved, loved reading and books so much that when the original Library of Congress was attacked by British troops and all the books were burned, Jefferson offered his personal library — over 6,400 books — as replacement.
Reading books in the office may not be terribly practical these days, but you should set aside some time for your own personal education. In that same spirit here are some of our fav blogs and podcasts that we think niche media publishers should be following:
Content & Audience Development: Content Marketing Institute, Ann Handley blog, CopyBlogger , MarketingProfs
Everything marketing/media-related: Ad Age Digital Next blog
Social Media: Social Media Examiner podcasts
