I have a few sites I go to day-in and day-out. They’re well-written, informative as heck, and a great source of inspiration.
Here they are:
- Smashing Magazine. No surprise. The folks at Smashing Magazine publish one great, inspirational post after another. If you’re a designer, developer or web marketer you want to subscribe and check them out daily.
- Nettuts+. I recently discovered Nettuts+ and am addicted. The tutorials are detailed and cover everything from PHP frameworks to Flash.
- Noupe is another great tutorial site. I could probably spend all day just reading some of these…
- Information Aesthetics. A collection of fantastic infographics. If you’re a datageek, it’s like Disneyland.
- Shoemoney is one of the most successful affiliate marketers on the planet. Read his stuff.
- SEOMoz Blog. Lotsa great SEO information, plus the occasional dust-up between Michael Martinez and Rand Fishkin.
- Wolf-Howl. Graywolf’s blog is great when you need a healthy dose of skepticism about the major search engines’ benevolence. A critical balance for any SEO.
- High Rankings Advisor. Jill Whalen and her team have been in SEO even longer than me. Which I didn’t think was possible. I’m just so damned old…
- LifeHacker is one nerdy tip after another for organizing your life, souping up your computer or learning to fry eggs with a black sock. OK, I made that last one up. But you get the idea.
- Gary Vaynerchuk’s blog shows you just how much fun someone can have if they find their passion and a career online. I’m still lookin’…
- Signal Vs. Noise. Yes, the guys at 37 Signals can sometimes seem obnoxious. And I admire that. Their genius for design, simplicity and usability make their blog mandatory.
- ChrisBrogan.com is a second CopyBlogger for me. Tips on writing, social media and online marketing wisdom.
- While I’m on the subject, CopyBlogger is where you get ideas and tips on becoming a better copywriter.
- The Electronic Frontier Foundation is always on my list. Because if you really love your country, you nag, nag, nag.
- AdScam/The Horror!. George Parker tells it like it is in the ad industry, and then some.
