Blogs and Podcasts for Niche Media Publishers!

President Thomas Jefferson was an avid reader. Find some time to follow what’s happening in niche media!

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:
